The Sony F112 is a professional, omnidirectional microphone designed for Electronic New Gathering (ENG) applications. The F112's frequency response and sensitivity are optimized for accurate reproduction of vocals, accentuating the range that enhances clarity while reducing residual noise. The omnidirectional pattern results in minimal noise from wind, with even signal reproduction at the sides and direct sections of the capsule. This is particularly useful while vying for the best possible microphone placement in awkward, crowded environments. The extra-long shaft allows plenty of room for radio and TV flags, and the rugged enclosure is durable enough to withstand frequent use on location.
