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.
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.
