Designed to provide the basic accessories for shock-mounting a shotgun microphone atop a camera, this B&H Kit features the Senal MC24-EL battery-/phantom-powered shotgun microphone, a shoe/pole shockmount, and a short XLR to 3.5mm cable for easy hookup to a camera's mic input.
The kit addresses the needs of videographers who prefer a cost-effective shotgun microphone setup that stays out of the frame while maintaining tailored-for-voice tone and low handling noise. With its XLR output and dual powering modes (phantom power or a single AA battery), the MC24-EL mic is well suited for use with mirrorless cameras and DSLRs as well as professional camcorders, portable audio recorders, multitrack field recorders, and compact mixer adapters.
The Senal MC24-EL is a battery-/phantom-powered long shotgun microphone that delivers broadcast-quality sound in the studio or on location. It maximizes the rejection of sound coming from the sides and rear of the mic and can be used as a directional microphone to capture full, rich, natural-sounding audio for speech and dialog.
Thoughtfully designed and engineered for demanding video productions, ENG, and broadcast applications, the MC24-EL delivers quality sound, and its rugged brass frame ensures it is capable of withstanding the rigors of recording in the field or on the go.
The microphone features a high-grade condenser transducer that captures detailed and accurate sound. It has a broad frequency response of 40 Hz to 20 kHz and delivers clear sound reproduction with full lows, present mids, and crisp highs. There is a selectable high-pass filter at 180 Hz that minimizes unwanted noise and rumble.
Furthermore, the microphone runs on 48V phantom power which is available from most professional video cameras, mixing boards, or recording devices, and runs on a single AA battery (over 400 hours) for those DSLRs, computers, and other devices where phantom power is not available. The mic is suitable for mounting on a boompole, a mic stand, or a camera, and includes a foam windscreen, a mic clip, and a 5/8" (mic stand thread) to 3/8" (boompole thread) adapter.
The microphone is covered with a matte-black rubberized coating that reduces handling noise and ensures trouble-free recordings when being operated. The finish also rejects unwanted light reflections. It is built with a gold-plated XLR connector and comes in a leatherette pouch.
The Auray DUSM-1 Universal Shockmount features a four-point suspension to accommodate shotgun and other cylindrical microphones measuring 0.74-0.98" (19-25mm) in diameter. The shockmount is easily angled with its rubberized adjustment knob. There is a built-in shoe for camera mounting, and a 3/8"-16 thread connection at the base mounts the shockmount to boompoles and universal handgrips.
The Kopul LMT100 cable simply enables a microphone or mic-level device to be input into a high-impedance 3.5mm mini input found on DSLRs, camcorders, and other devices. It is 1.5' long and has a 3-pin XLR female connector on one end and a standard 3.5mm mini plug on the other. It is designed for use with mono microphones.
