        Cool little attachment

        I like this. It's a really nice option when you have all four xlr ports taken and would like an insurance mic. It isn't the greatest shotgun but it is an ingenious accessory for videographers and filmaker a with a budget.

              Comments about Zoom SGH-6 Shotgun Microphone Capsule for H6 Recorder:

              I love my ZOOM H6. I was shooting some red carpet interviews and shooting over the shoulders of other video guys from the networks. The sound was ok using the XY Microphone Module but I thought that the shotgun module would work even better..so I bought it.
              I used it today for a press preview of American Idiot were 15 singers onstage were miked and I was about 20 feet away with my GH3 and H6.
              I must say that the sound came out very bright, a little too bright. Maybe there are setting on the H6 to adjust that, but I don't know. Maybe I could fix it in Audition, but I haven't had time to find out. I am keeping the shotgun anyway just incase I need it in the future.

              Surprisingly good sound quality

              Comments about Zoom SGH-6 Shotgun Microphone Capsule for H6 Recorder:

              I was surprised by this mic's quality. Upon listening to it though headphones attached to the h6, it sounded like there was a rather high noise floor. But upon inspecting it on my computer it was clean as a bell. Great unit.

              Best Uses

                Comments about Zoom SGH-6 Shotgun Microphone Capsule for H6 Recorder:

                It sounds great on the H6. I had to camera mount it (BMCC) and my only complaint is that the fuzzy sock gets in the way of the lens at times. It would be better if their were multiple mounting points on the back of the H6 to scoot it back a little away from the lens.

                I wish it could do a -15db recording backup to channels 1-4 instead of just the LR input.

                This is a total must have attachment if you have a Zoom H6. I was very excited when it delivered the day before I had to shoot a big wedding, and it capture some great audio, and very memorable moments. Very clear, clean directional sound.
