Senal CS-88 DSLR-Video Shotgun Microphone
The Senal CS-88 DSLR-Video Shotgun Microphone is designed for recording live audio directly to your DSLR camera. The CS-88's back electret condenser capsule, wide frequency response, flexible gain control, and shotgun design make it ideal for recording dialog and interviews both outdoors and indoors from a variety of distances. With its cardioid polar pattern, the CS-88 is optimized to focus on the subject while rejecting off-axis sound, making it great for ENG, film, broadcast and more.
The CS-88 attaches to your camera's shoe mount or to a boom pole and plugs into the camera's audio input jack to deliver natural, professional-quality sound. It's integrated shock mount isolates the microphone from vibrations caused by your camera or boom pole to minimize handling noise, thereby improving your recordings. On the side of the microphone, you'll find a three-level gain switch that provides a +10 dB boost, 0 dB unity gain, or -10 dB pad to prevent distortion from audio overload. Furthermore, the mic features a switchable high-pass filter at 60 Hz to roll off unwanted low-frequency noise and rumble.
The CS-88 runs on a single AA battery and its power indicator LED glows green when the mic's on/off switch is turned on. For convenience, the indicator LED glows red when it's time to change the battery. The mic comes with a foam windscreen that helps reduce wind noise and a drawstring carry pouch for safe storage and transport.

Auray WSW-CS88 Custom Windbuster for Senal CS-88
The Auray WSW Series Custom Windbusters provide dual layered wind protection and are designed to substantially reduce unwanted broadband wind noise and vocal pops with minimal high frequency loss.
This WSW-CS88 Custom Windbuster has been tailor-made to fit the Senal CS-88 and is designed to be used over its existing foam windscreen. The simulated fur outer layer works in tandem with the acoustic cloth inner lining to protect the microphone element from air bursts without muffling the sound.
When used on the Senal CS-88, this windbuster is effective in minimizing wind noise and plosive sounds. It is most effective in light breeze to moderate breeze conditions (4-17 mph) and users can generally expect a 20dB to 30dB reduction in wind noise with modest dampening of high frequencies. For most applications, the modest high frequency dampening is a worthwhile exchange for the substantial wind noise reduction.
In addition to dual layered wind protection, the WSW-CS88 helps prevent moisture and dirt from damaging your microphone. The windbuster is designed to fit the Senal CS-88 shotgun microphone.
The WSW-CS88 Custom Windbuster for Senal CS-88 shotgun microphone offers an extremely effective dual layered solution for wind protection.
