With its fully variable stereo/mono capture capabilities and integrated swiveling shockmount, the Azden SMX-30V video microphone is well equipped to deliver the versatility needed by videographers and vloggers for recording high-quality dialogue and ambience to a DSLR, compact camcorder, or portable audio recorder. Two AA batteries (available separately) will power the mic for up to 100 hours and a coiled 3.5mm TRS cable is included for tidy and easy hookup to your camera.
Housed inside an innovative casing, the SMX-30V is two microphones in one a stereo microphone equipped with two cardioid cardioid capsules at 90 angle, and a mono supercardioid shotgun element in a 4.5" interference tube. Use the stepless knob to choose stereo, mono, or a blend of both for the perfect balance of the subject and surrounding environment sound. Additionally, the 3-step gain control and 60 Hz low-cut filter help you achieve optimal tone and level for your recordings, so you can spend less time in postproduction.
