Hi Guys, 

I read through a lot of relevant posts here and actually decided I want to try 
recording nature, both animals wildlife and ambience, but also record humans 
interacting in their own natural enviroments, (e.g. offices, parks, classrooms 

I've an upcoming travel period of one month, to India, for backpacking and 
village hopping purposes up north in Himachel Pradesh. 

For this occasion I have bought an Olympus LS-5 and am browsing now for a 32gb 
SDHC to try and have as much storage for this purpose.

As I am still new to microphones, especially PIPs (is that right?) I wonder if 
any of you ever used a microphone that complimented the voltage and pre-amps of 
the LS-5(11,10-base rolloff) for such recording sessions? (birds, animals, 
waterfalls) preferably something i can stick in a low budget and that may ship 
to Israel.

When do you, if ever, use the low-cut filter, and on what sensitivity you set 
the microphone and recording level (which mode is most recommended for more 
detailed recordings?)

Any other tip or suggestion will be appreciated as I am still learning and 
feeling really noobish.

Thank you for reading.
