The Double MS technique is optimally suitable for film and music recording, as it is very flexible and small and can be postprocessed easily.
The dedicated solution for recording ambiences for film or sport events is the already-popular ORTF-surround technique, which achieves a beautiful, open spatial image through optimal signal separation, while maintaining the smallest form factor possible. It is also available in a wind basket, as a Plug&Play setup.
