    Default Parabolic mic

    Does anyone know where to get a parabolic mic? Not the cheap chinese crap. Something with maybe a 25-35cm dish, good microphone and a tripod mount. I want to listen to the bush and use it for recording audio to add to my youtube videos. Something in the order of R2000 - 3500.

    We used to go to Sabie park when I was a laaitie and there was one. Listening to the bush at night was amazing.

    Interesting and practical article.

    Years ago we travlled through Botswana and Moremi with somebody who had a parabolic mic. The sounds we picked up, especially at night, were amazing.
