The SGM-1X Professional Shotgun Microphone is designed to provide quality audio for the videographer. It is ideal for todayÃ¢â¬™s smaller, digital video cameras where longer models would appear in the frame when camera mounted. The hyper-directional super-cardioid shotgun microphone has a wide frequency response, exhibits low noise and accepts up to 110dB SPL input levels. The 11.8? long microphone uses a single Ã¢â¬ÅAAAÃ¢â¬Â battery that will last over 1000 hours due to the micÃ¢â¬™s extremely low current drain. The low-impedance, XLR connectored SGM-1X ships complete with a windscreen and AzdenÃ¢â¬™s proprietary shock-mount holder that isolates camera motor noise from the mic. The holder has provisions for both camera-shoe and mic-stand mounting.
