The C568 B Professional Small Condenser Shotgun Microphone from AKG is a short shotgun microphone designed for camera mounting and handheld operation. The microphone yields a hypercardioid polar pattern below 500 Hz. Above 500 Hz, the microphone increases directivity, eliminating signal at the off-axis sections of the capsule. The condenser element requires 9 to 52V phantom power and features a wide frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz. A low-cut filter switch eliminates hum and noise at 120 Hz. The short design allows the C568 B to be mounted on a camera without obstructing the image. The C568 B includes a foam windscreen and stand adapter.

Eliminates Off-Axis Noise
The C568 B shotgun microphone eliminates off-axis signal while placing emphasis on the direct incoming signal. The result eliminates ambient noise while providing accurate pick up at greater ranges.
Camera Mountable
The short, compact design allows the C568 B to be mounted on a camera without obstructing the camera's view.
Wide Frequency Response
The 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response allows the microphone to be used in a variety of applications.
Low-Cut Filter Switch
The low-cut filter switch eliminates hum, noise and rumble at 120 Hz.
