What are some Rycote shockmounts that would work with this microphone? Rycote does a terrible job of not mentioning this on their website.

Can you power the shotgun with a AA battery or it absolutely need phantom power to work?
Asked by: Charles
The Rycote HC-15 Short Shotgun Microphone requires 24V or 48V of phantom power. It will not work with a standard battery. However, you can get a separate phantom power supply that uses a battery. For example, the Xvive Audio P1 Portable Phantom Power Supply with Rechargeable Battery (B&H # XVP1) has a built-in rechargeable battery and it's very easy to use. The Mackie M48 Single-Channel 48V Phantom Power Supply (B&H # MAM48) can be powered by a 9V battery or its included AC power supply. We do have more options. Please feel free to contact us by phone or through live chat and we will be happy to help you find the best option for your application.

How do these shotguns do outside in heat and humidity? I do a lot of nature recordings and am interested in their low self noise
Asked by: Kevin
The Rycote HC-15 Short Shotgun Microphone is not IP-rated for moisture resistance, and Rycote has not specified a maximum ambient temperature for optimal operation. As such, and until further information is made available, it should be protected from moisture and caution should be taken when using the microphone in high temperatures.
