Polar Pattern: Super cardioid
The super cardioid polar pattern of the CMG-50 shotgun microphone is designed to pick up sound directly from where the camera is pointing. It effectively diminishes noise from the sides and rear, ensuring that your intended sound source is captured with superior directivity.
Battery or Phantom Power
The CMG-50 can be powered by either a +48V phantom power supply (included with most professional video cameras or mixing consoles) or an internal 1.5V AA battery. This versatility allows you to use the microphone in various settings without worrying about power source compatibility.
Switchable High Pass Filter
The microphone features a switchable high pass filter that can be used to remove low frequency noise that is not part of your intended sound source. This helps to minimize unwanted background noise and ensures that your recordings are clean and focused.
Includes Foam Windscreen and Storage Pouch
To further enhance the audio quality, the CMG-50 comes with a foam windscreen. This windscreen helps prevent sound interference caused by breezes or wind, allowing you to capture clear and crisp audio in any environment. Additionally, a storage pouch is included for convenient transportation and protection of the microphone.
