Rode Pinmic long microphone test

Archived; click post to view.
Excerpt: I have been looking for the ideal combination of small recorder and lavalier mic for professional broadcast over the web. I think I’ve found it in the Rode Pinmic long mic and the Tascam DR-10C. This combination + the Rode Micon 1 seems to be the ideal I’ve been looking for over the last few months. I shot the test video with separate sound to the Tascam via the Rode and post synched in Plural Eyes software. This will be my main interview mic for the forseeable future. Have a listen to the video below.
