I got the unit for $275 USD (plus shipping) as part of a bundle including a dead cat (wind jacket for the mic), a cord and a collapsible boom handle. I am thinking of carrying the boom with me in my sound bag so that at any moment I can attach the Rode Shotgun NDT-3 microphone and record growling dogs or garbage trucks or whatever strikes me as important. Possibly some singing or arguing done by different people at odd unexpected times. The boom poll is a nice bonus that should allow me to get in close to my subject, I hope it is not to big to carry with me.
