The Beyerdynamic MCE86 II Cam is a professional shotgun microphone designed for use with consumer, professional and semi-professional video cameras. The rugged shotgun microphone measures 310mm long and features a hyper-cardioid / lobe pick up pattern. The pick up pattern effectively minimizes noise and off-axis (side) signal while accurately reproducing the source signal at the front of the microphone capsule. The MCE86 II is capable of receiving 11-52V phantom power or internal power via 1.5V AA battery. The microphone also features an On/Off switch for added flexibility.

Integrated Kit for Camera Use
The MCE86 II Cam includes the EA86 camera mount, WS 716 windscreen and short connecting cable for use with video cameras.
Hyper-Cardioid Polar Pattern
The hyper-cardioid lobe polar pattern effectively minimizes wind noise and side audio, maximizing pick up at the front of the microphone.
Low Wind Noise
An integrated active filter reduces noise caused by wind, rumble and motor noise.

    Comments about Beyerdynamic MCE86 S II CAM - Shotgun Condenser Microphone:

    Beyerdynamic has a great reputation on their headphones, and just wanting to own something different other than an NTG-2, which is I believe what a lot of people got when they started, I chose this microphone because I want to be just a little different. Having a side to side comparison with the NTG-2, it's not as heavy on the bass, so I actually feel that I could crank it a little bit higher on the sensitivity of the recorder, and putting the cut filter on without distorting the voice as much. Thing is light, good size, and tons of options. You could use phantom power, or a AA if you really want to do run and gun shoots (Sound doesn't sound good when picked up far away, but sometimes you're just a one man band!), pretty nifty. I just like having more options, but for the price, it sounds pretty great. I couldn't really complain. I'm not a professional, so I think this shotgun is a great starter for me until I could handle gear better. The only thing I disliked about it is the foam windscreen that came with it. Pretty tough to put it on! Other than that, I have no complains with the purchase, very happy with it actually.
