The Senal SMS-45 Mini Shotgun Stereo Condenser Microphone is a compact, lightweight, and durable stereo microphone designed for recording stereo audio directly into a DSLR camera, camcorder, or portable recorder. Engineered for videography, sound field recording and broadcast, the SMS-45 features two cardioid condenser capsules arranged in an X-Y pattern for capturing pristine audio with realistic stereo and spatial imaging. Its small frame makes it perfect for camera mount use.

The microphone is powered by one LR44 button cell battery (not included), or with plug-in power when used with cameras or portable recorders that provide it. A switchable high pass filter helps reduce low end rumble caused by handling and vibration. The mic comes with a rubber lined, isolated microphone holder that helps absorb vibration, and allows you to adjust the angle of the mic.

The SMS-45 can be used for any recording application requiring a boom pole, and it can also attach to a camera's shoe mount making it a versatile and sturdy tool for a variety of field and studio recording projects. The mic also comes with a desktop mic stand, great for standalone tabletop microphone placement, foam windscreen and a travel pouch.

      Big improvement over the built in mics on my HS50EXR. I was a bit disappointed that the package did not include the button battery.

      Mini Mic

      Comments about Senal SMS-45 Mini Shotgun Stereo Condenser Microphone:

      Attaching this mini mic to a camera is simple and effective. You may also attach it to a Super Clamp with ratchet, in conjunction with a Matthews tablet mount for iPad or other tablet. The sound quality is good and the size factor is appreciated. I use it for interviews and for recording educational videos and audio.
