Polaroid Pro Video Condenser Shotgun Microphone for Digital SLR Camera/Camcorder


About Polaroid

The Polaroid Pro Video Condenser Shotgun Microphone is a highly sensitive electrets condenser directional microphone. Being powered by a single three volt lithium battery (included), the microphone is capable of picking up even soft, low-level and high-sensitive sounds at relatively long distances from the camera or camcorder. It easily slides to your camera or camcorder via the shoe mount, brackets or video rig.

The camera & camcorder need to have a microphone 3.5mm plug in jack. It connects to the camera with a single cord with a three conductor audio plug. The pickup pattern is super-cardioids. It is most sensitive to the target sounds in front of the microphone and very much less and eliminating any background sounds. Additionally, the microphone incorporates a combination on-off & angle selection switch (90 degree for a group of less than three & 120 degree for a larger group).

Questions about this item:

Shopper  How good is the quality of this microphone? Will work with a Panasonic GH3?
MBC DANIEL R  I have been using this microphone for 6 weeks in a roll and im amazed that it even eliminates distortion created at clubs and closed areas. Im very happy with this product and highly recommend it.
Shopper  would this be a good mic for video production?
MBC DANIEL R  Yes, for amateur video production works great. It really improves the quality of the sound compared with built in mic. I would not say this is a pro mic because the way it is built, mostly plastic. I have been using this mic for 8 months already and never had to change the battery yet.
matt w  Does it come with a cable to attatch it to the camera? i did not see one in features
Andrew R  I believe that the cable is hardwired to the mic.
