Condenser Shotgun Microphone

Crisp & intelligible pickup - far away or up close. In its “Tele” range setting, this cardioid condenser is engineered to pick up dialogue and sound effects at a distance, while bypassing ambient noise such as traffic, air-handling systems, room reverberation and mechanically coupled vibrations. 

Designed especially for use with video cameras

For best results, position mic as close to sound source as possible. Beyond three or four feet, the audio may start to sound distant. Also, try to aim the mic at the sound source, as sound from the side or rear will not be picked up well. Still, some side or rear sound may be recorded - keep this in mind, especially if mounting mic to a camera, since some camera operation noise may be captured.
