Polsen CS88A Overview

The CS-88A DSLR-Video Shotgun Microphone from Polsen is designed for recording live audio directly to your DSLR camera. Its back-electret condenser capsule, wide frequency response, flexible gain control, and shotgun design can be used for recording dialog and interviews both outdoors and indoors from a variety of distances. With its cardioid polar pattern, the CS-88A is optimized to focus on the subject while rejecting off-axis sound making it great for ENG, film, broadcast, and more.

The CS-88A attaches to your camera's shoe mount or to a boompole and plugs into the camera's audio input jack to deliver natural, professional-quality sound. The integrated shock mount isolates the microphone from vibrations caused by your camera or boompole to minimize handling noise, thereby improving your recordings. This microphone is built with 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-88A DSLR-Video Shotgun Microphone runs on a single AA battery and is equipped with a power indicator LED that glows green when the mic's on/off switch is turned on. For your 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.
