Me and my friend are vloggers and and we're trying to decide. Do we need a shotgun mic or a regular mic (i was thinking of AT-2020 as a usb mic)
Can you help us decide, please?

well portability wise I'd recommend a shotgun mic that can be directly mounted on to your camera, however if you're gonna set up a stuio at home and just record without moving around a condenser microphone might be better :)

Travel Vlogs? Shotgun. Sit down vlogs? USB mic, such as the blue yeti/snowball. :)
