The Deity from Aputure is a condenser shotgun microphone that delivers broadcast-quality sound for video and film production, in the studio or in the field.

The Deity features a supercardioid polar pattern that provides directivity and minimizes surrounding ambience sounds. Its design preserves the tonal balance between the direct "on-axis" sound and the "off-axis" room sound, making it easier to mix your audio in post-production. The circuitry's low inherent self-noise (12 dB/A-weighted, 24 dB/CCIR) lets you capture natural-sounding speech and dialog.

Engineered to withstand the rigors of run-and-gun-style recording, the Deity is machined from solid brass and features a gold-coated PCB board and a moisture-resistant capsule. A waterproof, air-pressure-balanced case is provided to keep your microphone safe during storage or travel. Also included are a mic clip and a foam windscreen.

Supercardioid pattern provides directivity and minimizes surrounding ambience sounds
Low coloration of off-axis sonic characteristics – provides ideal tonal balance between direct sound and environmental ambience, as sound sources move off the axis of the directional pattern
Low inherent self-noise for a detailed sound – resists RF (radio frequency) interferences
All-brass body with rugged coating, gold-coated PCB board – handles the rigors of working in the field, even in humid environments
Runs on 48V and 24V phantom power supplied by most professional video cameras, mixing boards, or recording devices
Includes waterproof, air-pressure-balanced case
Includes microphone clip and foam windscreen

    Deity Condenser Shotgun Microphone is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Built like a tank, but sounds unimpressive Let me start by saying, I wanted to love this mic. I had seen other reviews for it and they all praised the quality for the low price point. However, after trying it out for myself, I was less than satisfied. I currently own a Zoom F4, and the Aputure Deity does not produce clean sound through it. For comparison, I also have a Rode NTG2, and honestly I was surprised at how they did against each other. The Aputure is definitely a brighter and hotter mic, but the noise floor is worse than the NTG2. I plugged both into my Zoom F4. I had the Deity gain at about 45, and the NTG2 was at about 65, but the noise floor in both was almost identical. The Aputure also pics up more background noises and has a less narrow pickup, but that is something that they intentionally designed. Then just for fun I tried testing them against each other in my Zoom H4n. Both needed to be set at 100 to get decent signals. The Aputure's signal was definitely louder by about 10db, but the noise in both was almost equally bad (as expected with the gain at 100 on the H4n). The one good thing I can say about this mic is that it is built like a tank. I believe you could through this thing through some dry wall, dunk it in a pond, and it would still keep going. Maybe this mic would work great on a much more expensive recorder, but if you're using a lower end recorder such as the H4n or F4 this is not the mic you're looking for.
