Senal SCS-98 overview

  • 1Description

The Senal SCS-98 DSLR/Video Stereo Microphone & Custom Windbuster Kit from B&H comes with everything you need to start making professional stereo recordings for ENG, broadcast, videos and much more. The package ships with the Senal SCS-98 DSLR/Video Stereo Microphone and the Auray WSW Series Custom Windbuster.

  • Senal SCS-98 DSLR/Video Stereo Microphone

    The Senal SCS-98 DSLR/Video Stereo Microphone features a matched pair of cardioid condenser capsules that are arranged in an XY pattern to achieve accurate, natural stereo imaging. This makes it ideal for location recording, broadcast applications, live performances and capturing soundscapes in outdoor environments.

    Compact and lightweight, the SCS-98 attaches to your camera's shoe mount and plugs directly into its audio input, or your portable recorder's microphone input, to capture pristine audio with realistic stereo imaging for your video productions.

    The 80 Hz high-pass filter helps prevent the microphone from picking up disruptive low-frequency noise, while the three-level gain switch provides a +10 dB boost, 0 dB unity gain, or a -10 dB pad. The -10 dB pad can be used for recording louder sound sources without distortion, while the +10 dB boost can be used to achieve a higher gain signal to avoid having to use the noisy preamps aboard many cameras and camcorders, resulting in a much cleaner recording.

    The SCS-98 also boasts a dual shockmount design. The two back electret condenser capsules are enclosed within a rubber decoupling system inside the microphone. This, combined with the integrated shockmount, isolates the microphone from handling noise, providing maximum isolation from vibrations and mechanical noise. The SCS-98 also features an integrated shoe-mount with a 1/4"-20 threaded socket, which lets you mount it onto a camera or boompole. In addition, a male 1/4"-20 to female 3/8" adapter is also included. The durable, 7" coiled output cable is terminated with a 1/8" (3.5mm) stereo output connector and is shielded for maximum protection against interference.

  • Auray WSW-VMS Custom Windbuster for Senal SCS-98 & Polsen VM-180M DSLR/Video Shotgun Mics

    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-VMS Custom Windbuster has been tailor-made to fit the Senal SCS-98 and Polsen VM-180M DSLR/Video shotgun microphones, and is designed to be used over an 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 SCS-98 or Polsen VM-180M, this windbuster is effective in minimizing wind noise and plosive sounds. It is most effective in light to moderate breeze conditions (4-17 mph) and users can generally expect a 30dB to 40dB 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-VMS helps prevent moisture and dirt from damaging your microphone.

    The WSW-VMS Custom Windbuster for Senal SCS-98 & Polsen VM-180M DSLR/Video Shotgun Mics offers an extremely effective dual layered solution for wind protection.

Senal SCS-98 reviews

SCS-98 DSLR/Video Stereo Microphone & Custom Windbuster Kit is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty good unit Used several times under different conditions. The unit is easy to use for beginners but the manual provided little technical details to allow for fully utilization of the unit. Wish there are LEDs indicating the battery life. Windy outdoor is most challenging even with the windsock. So got to pick your spot and stay away from direct wind. Indoor worked the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for outdoor sporting events This microphone provides great audio for the price. I use it to create golf videos and it picks up the discussions as the round progresses. I just wish the indicator light stayed on. I haven't run out of power, but I keep a spare battery and turn it on and off just to verify its working

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would Recommend Great mic for the money. However, I have to agree with everybody else that didn't like the momentary power on LED.
