A couple friends recommended the Okatava. One uses this small condenser with a cardioid capsule in a stereo pair to capture live instruments (mostly acoustic guitar). The other friend is a videographer and uses the Oktava on a boom during interviews and talking head shots. I was on the hunt for a boom mic - I had rented a well-regarded shotgun mic for a video shoot and I was not impressed. (I have since learned that shotgun mics may not be the best choice for indoors.) So my videographer buddy strongly recommended this Oktava with a hypercardioid capsule. Site unseen (and unheard) I took and chance on this mic and I am very glad I did. Audio quality is really nice - very low noise with minimal EQ in post to get a nice sound. I recently did another video shoot and between the very natural sound of the mic and the clean capture on a Zoom F6 (a 32bit float recorder), I'm really happy with this purchase. Front End Audio was also very accommodating when I decided to swap my silver mic for the black. Overall, very happy with this small, simple and relatively inexpensive mic.
