What mic is this?

Picks up everything really well. Think they are using room mics too? I don't see any in the long shot. https://www.youtube.com/v=wqWBth_rLgw

The video was posted by state of N.C. Department of Natural and Cultural Resources, so the mic may be part of the state's A/V gear.
Looks pretty old.

It's a Neumann KMS84i

If you unscrew the basket, there's what looks like the top third of a KM84, with it's capsule inside the head of the mic.

It's getting on in age now but still a really nice vocal mic which also works on most things that a KM84 works on. The head basket changes the sound a bit from a KM84i but gives some useful blast protection. It's successor was the KMS140 which was also a good mic, replaced by the cheaper (and still current) KMS104. (The KMS105 is the hypercardioid version.)
