Whether shooting with a camera, vlogging on a smartphone, or recording to a portable recorder, the Polsen MVP-3 ultracompact shotgun microphone delivers sound quality that simply cannot be matched by the built-in mics on such devices. The mic's compact and ultralightweight design makes it an unobtrusive companion to your rig, and it can easily be mounted atop a camera or on a tripod. Two coiled cables are supplied with the MVP-3 to ensure compatible connection to the 3.5mm (1/8") port on your DSLR, smartphone, or portable audio recorder.

The shotgun style and cardioid polar pattern work together to provide accurate pickup in front of the mic along with enhanced rejection of off-axis sound. Vibration and handling noise are minimized by the included shockmount, which has an integral camera shoe and 1/4"-20 socket for versatile mounting. The metal body aids in impeding interference from EM and RF sources, and the supplied wind protection—a foam windscreen for indoor use and a furry windshield for outdoor shoots—reduces noise from breezes.

For DSLRs, Smartphones, and Portable Recorders

Relying on the built-in microphone of a DSLR, smartphone, or portable recorder can compromise your production with inadequate audio. Whichever you choose to shoot with, the MVP-3 will add better sound to your video and improve the quality of your production. The MVP-3 runs on the power from the recording device, so no additional cables or power sources are needed.

Instantly Improved Sound Quality

The MVP-3 is compatible with any DSLR, smartphone, or portable recorder with a 3.5mm (1/8") audio input jack. The two included cables are optimized for proper hookup to smartphones (via TRRS cable) and cameras or portable recorders (via TRS cable). All you have to do is plug in, set your levels, and start recording.

Live and In-the-Field Recording

The lightweight MVP-3 shotgun microphone features an ultracompact form factor that won't weigh down a DSLR, smartphone, or handheld rig. It's short enough that it will record great sound while it stays comfortably out of frame.

Cardioid Polar Pattern

The cardioid polar pattern ensures you record the sound you want and reject the sound you don't. This is especially good news when you're recording dialogue or interviews in noisy environments because the MVP-3 focuses on the sound in front of it while it rejects off-axis sound.

Wide Frequency Range

The MVP-3 has an extremely wide frequency range for a compact microphone. Its 60 Hz to 20 kHz frequency range ensures you'll hear accurate details and all the nuances of the sound you're recording.

Shockmount

The included shockmount minimizes unwanted noise when you're shooting on the go, because it prevents vibrations from reaching the microphone. Whether the MVP-3 is mounted on a DSLR, boompole, or smartphone gimbal, handling and machine noise won't compromise your audio.

Anti-Interference Design

When you're out there shooting, there's no telling where interference is coming from. Power lines, streetlights, and even passing cars can wreak havoc on audio recordings due to RF and EM interference. The MVP-3's anti-interference design protects the circuitry, so you won't have to reshoot due to the hum, buzz, and static from interference.

Included Extras

Wind noise isn't something you should have to live with when you're shooting outdoors. The MVP-3 is designed for on-the-go recording, and includes a furry windshield and a foam windscreen so light to moderate breezes won't interfere with capturing dialogue or ambient sound.
