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).
