Sized between the short MiniCMIT and the long SuperCMIT, the blue Schoeps CMIT 5 shotgun microphone is an excellent all-around boom mic for indoor and outdoor applications. Highly regarded for film, TV, and location recording, the CMIT 5 offers customizable tone and predictable directionality, even when rotated.
Three selectable filters let you manage boom noise, proximity effect, high-frequency emphasis to ensure balanced, professional audio quality. Special construction and filtering effectively inhibits interference from various sources such as radio, TV, and cellular frequencies.
The CMIT 5's supercardioid/lobar polar pattern yields directional characteristics that smoothly increase at higher frequencies while providing low off-axis coloration for natural sound at all angles. With low self-noise, moderate sensitivity, and high SPL handling, the CMIT 5 delivers sonic performance deserving of premium mic preamps.
Pairs of LEDs next to each push button indicate the status of the filters. Even in darkness, the user can read the settings and see that the microphone is operational. The settings are retained when the microphone is switched off.
