The compact design of this short shotgun keeps it out of the shot when mounted to a camera, and is easier to manage at the end of a long boom pole. Versatile on a camera, boom, or remotely placed, this mic is suited for the rigors of broadcast production. This microphone is particularly well-suited to outdoor recording, because it exhibits superb control over the unwanted negative effects of off-axis sounds. Conventional microphones can’t match the SG9P’s focused pickup pattern and thus a conventional microphone can’t deliver anywhere near the same degree of articulation and detail. The SG9P comes with a windscreen, mounting clip and carrying case, so you’re all set to go right from the start.
