Rode Videomic Pro - Compact Shotgun Microphone
The VideoMic Pro from Rode packs the audio quality and features of the popular VideoMic into an ultra compact and lightweight design that's ideal for use with HDSLR cameras, camcorders, and audio recorders. The microphone has a broadcast-quality condenser capsule with a supercardioid pickup pattern to capture audio from the front, while minimizing pickup from the sides and rear. An integrated shockmount and foam windscreen minimize handling and wind noise to keep your recordings crystal clear.
On the rear of the mic, you'll find a 3-way level control that offers -10dB, 0dB, and +20dB modes. There is also a 2-step high pass filter with 0 and 80Hz settings, letting you minimize the impact of low frequency hum, camera motor noise, and similar distractions. The mic has a standard camera shoe and a 3/8" threaded mount for easy attachment to cameras and boom poles. The 3.5mm plug is compatible with a wide variety of different cameras and audio devices. The VideoMic Pro operates for up to 70 hours on a single 9V battery, allowing you to work in the field without constant replacements.

Its frequency-independent directivity prevents sound colouration from off-axis sound sources.
- Exceptionally low inherent self-noise
- Transformerless and fully floating balanced output
- Infra-sonic cut-off filter
- Symmetrical transducer technology ensures extremely low distortion.
- Switchable pre-attenuation, switchable roll-off filter and switchable treble emphasis.
- Rugged and weather proof
Sennheiser MKH-60 Condenser Microphone
The MKH 60 is a lightweight, super-cardioid short shotgun microphone. It is versatile and easy to handle and its superb lateral sound muting makes it an excellent choice for film and reporting applications. Its high degree of directivity ensures high sound quality for distance applications.
Sennheiser MKH-50 Condenser Microphone
The Sennheiser MKH-50 is a high quality, professional condenser microphone specifically designed for spot capturing in recording and sound reinforcement applications. The MKH-50 offers exceptional attenuation at the lateral sections of the capsule for a focused pick up without off-axis noise. It's wide frequency response and high sensitivity result in pristine audio fidelity no matter the source. The MKH-50 is more than suitable for capturing vocals or instruments in recording or sound reinforcement.

Phantom Powered short shotgun condenser microphone including K-Tek carbon fiber boom, Rycote Softie windscreen. Other Rycotes are available.
Schoeps short shotgun condenser mic
The Schoeps MK41 is part of the Colette series of modular capsules designed for use with the CMC preamplifier. Sound arriving from off axis is attenuated even more than with a standard cardioid. The pickup is "drier" and less susceptible to acoustic feedback, provided there isn't a strong sound source directly on the rear axis of the microphone. Its directivity is highly independent of frequency, so that even sounds arriving off axis and reverberant sound are registered without coloration. Consequently, even distant placement of the microphone produces a very natural sound pickup.

Crown PCC-160 Boundary Microphone
Industry-standard stage-floor mic catches the full dynamics of stage sound. The Crown PCC-160 Boundary Mic is a great mic for theater, large-group performances, lecterns, and happenings.
The Crown PCC-160 (Phase Coherent Cardioid) is a surface-mounted halfsupercardioid microphone intended for professional applications on stage floors, lecterns, conference tables, and news desks—wherever improved gain-before-feedback and articulation are important. Similar to the Pressure Zone Microphone (PZM), the PCC is designed to be used on a relatively large boundary surface. Unlike the PZM, the Phase Coherent Cardioid uses a miniature
supercardioid mic capsule. Its directional polar pattern improves gain-before-feedback, reduces unwanted room noise and rejects sounds from the rear. Surface-mounting creates a “half-supercardioid” polar pattern and increases directivity 3 dB. Since the microphone capsule is placed on a boundary, direct and refl ected sounds arrive at the diaphragm in-phase. This coherent addition of direct and refl ected waves increases sensitivity 6 dB and prevents phase cancellations. The mic capsule is small enough to ensure phase coherency up to the highest frequencies in the audible spectrum, resulting in a wide, smooth frequency response free of phase interference. Clarity and reach are also enhanced.
