This B&H Kit combines the Sennheiser MKH 8060 moisture-resistant short shotgun microphone and the Sennheiser MZF 8000 filter module to offer boom operators, sound designers, and sound recordists a high-end shotgun mic that provides switchable pad and high-pass filter settings while remaining lightweight and friendly for boompole or camera-mount configurations.
Whether used on a boompole or attached to a camera, the Sennheiser MKH 8060 moisture-resistant short shotgun microphone can help you achieve superb audio capture in demanding conditions for your next professional film, TV, or location recording. Mix-ready sound quality is provided by its sharp directivity, low noise, and high output. Plus, there are no controls to worry about; the MKH 8060 delivers the reliability you need for high-pressure gigs.
The microphone exhibits a supercardioid polar pattern at low to midrange frequencies and transitions to a lobar pattern in high frequencies, providing uniform attenuation of 10 to 20 dB from 125 Hz to 1 kHz between 90° and 120° off axis. The rejection pattern for high frequencies is also consistent, further contributing to the mic's transparent, undistorted off-axis tone. Your dialogue, foley, and sound effects can be recorded with full dynamics and clarity, thanks to the MKH 8060's wide frequency response, transformerless output, and high SPL handling.
The MZF 8000 from Sennheiser is a filter module designed for use with the MKH 8000 series of RF condenser microphones. The filter blocks interference caused by wind and handling noise, while still preserving acoustic detail.
The filter has a switchable roll-off filter, a fixed low-cut filter, and a -10dB pad, allowing you to adjust the response of your mic. The filter has a balanced output for wide compatibility.
