The blue Schoeps MiniCMIT is a miniature shotgun microphone designed to provide the characteristics of standard CMIT mic in a short and lightweight body. Delivering accurate close and distant capture of dialog and musical instruments, it is ideal for boom operators, audio engineers, and musicians in film, television, and video production as well as music recording applications. Its supercardioid/lobe-shaped polar pattern yields precise directionality, high immunity to wind noise, and low coloration at the off-axis sections of the capsule. An integrated RFI shield yields enhanced rejection of radio-frequency interference.

The MiniCMIT features the same frequency response as the CMIT 5, allowing either microphone to be used without altering the sound. A fixed 24 dB/octave low-cut filter at 70 Hz prevents proximity effect and build-up of low frequencies. It supports P12 and P48 phantom powering with low current draw and utilizes an XLR 3-pin output for compatibility with most microphone preamps. The MiniCMIT microphone includes a foam windscreen and a swivel-type stand clamp.

Offers the tonal characteristics of the CMIT 5 in a lightweight body less than 6" long
Fixed 4th-order (24 dB/octave) low-cut filter at 70 Hz
Works on a variety of phantom power voltages
Integrated RFI shield rejects interference from radio frequencies

MiniCMIT Miniature Shotgun Microphone (Blue) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stellar Microphone All my go to microphones for field location audio are first and foremost Schoeps. I have a pair of Schoeps cmc641s and snagged a cmit5u when it was first introduced. I was in the market for adding a second cmit5u and saw that the miniCMIT had just been released. So glad I waited for this newer version. It's size makes it incredibly versatile in tight locations. It's lighter in weight than its big brother (cmit5u) but has the same sonic quality. The only thing you give up on the mini model is some of the filter options. I've used this on multiple shoots and interviews and it is a stellar microphone. The one thing I appreciate most about Schoeps microphones is the overall lack of coloration. Once I'm back in my studio listening to playback I can close my eyes and it's like the talent is sitting there right next to me speaking clear, uncolored, natural audio. That being said there is a lot of buzz about Schoeps microphones being susceptible to humidity causing the mic to motorboat. I have only had this happen once with my cmit5u in an extremely humid interior interview. For that reason I highly recommend you always have on hand a microphone that is impervious to humidity and moisture (Rode NTG-3, Sennheiser MKH 50, Sennheiser MKH 416 or whatever you prefer). But otherwise all my Schoeps have performed well in some very humid environments. If I were headed to the Amazon Rain Forest or somewhere incredibly wet and humid I would leave all my Schoeps at home and go with a sure thing that could endure that much moisture. And yes, there are times I will choose another mic for very specific reasons dictated by the room or the talent's voice, but otherwise I'm swinging a Schoeps on my pole at least 95% of the time. Money well spent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Sound in a Compact Form Scheops newest shotgun mic and the 3rd member of the CMIT family. Has the CMIT sound minus the filter options but makes up for being versatile with its small size. Great mic!
