Digital noise cut filter for clear sound

Continuous background noise is effectively suppressed by a digital noise-cut filter for clear sound recording. A low-cut filter is also provided to reduce wind noise, the hum of air conditioning, and other low-frequency vibration noise. Suppressing noise at the recording stage reduces workload during post processing, enhancing overall efficiency.

Digital audio interface

The digital audio interface offers an all-digital signal path from microphone to camera, avoiding the noise and distortion associated with analogue transmission, and retaining the full benefit of the digital signal processing in the microphone.

Compact size and light weight for versatility and portability

The impressively compact size and light weight of the microphone make it incredibly versatile for a range of shooting, and a trusty addition to any gear bag.
