Super-cardioid shotgun Electret condenser microphone

Contact us


The short shotgun, super-cardioid design enhances directional response and is ideal for clean recording of medium range sound sources. Ambient off-axis background noise is effectively rejected and only a narrow angle pick-up range directly in front is accepted.


Built-in Low-cut Filter
The built-in low-cut filter is effective at reducing rumble from wind noise, vibration or air conditioning, allowing the target sound source to be clearly recorded.
Slide switch (Power OFF/NORM (Normal)/LOW CUT (Low-cut))
Set the switch according to the sound source.

The supplied wind screen greatly reduces wind noise and breath pops.
Shock-mount Microphone Holder
The shock mount holder included with the microphone helps to reduce vibration noise when mounted on a camcorder, which is especially helpful for hand-held shooting in the field.
Power Supplied by Camera or Alkaline AA Battery
Phantom power is supplied from the microphone input jack of the compatible Sony camcorder. When used with a DSLR or incompatible camcorder, about 900 hours of power is provided by installing a single alkaline AA battery.
