This looks like an interesting kit especially with the lightweight boom arm. Shotgun mics NEED to be boomed. Do not put a shotgun microphone on the camera’s hotshoe and think you’re all done with your audio set up. You need to get your audio as close to the subject as possible and preferably right above the subject.
