              Shooting with an 8mm fisheye a lot and needed a high quality mic that wouldn't enter the wide shot. This mic does the job perfectly!

                      Comments about Sanken CS-1e Short Shotgun Microphone:

                      I recently had to film something in an older building that was almost completely covered in hard surfaces. We needed to boom it but that would require a mic with heavy side cancellation. This Mic did a phenomenal job at producing great vocal tones without any serious echo.

                      It does need to be kept in closer proximity than you would with a longer shotgun for best results, however, it is worth it!
