Schoeps CMIT 5U Overview

The Schoeps CMIT 5U Shotgun Microphone Softie Kit is designed for ENG and location recording. The kit consists of a Schoep's CMIT 5U shotgun microphone, a Rycote Lyre suspension system, a handheld pistol grip, a fur windshield, and a 40 cm 3-pin XLR gold-plated Mogami microphone cable. The patented Lyre web suspension system does not use elastic or rubber making it virtually unbreakable and unaffected by changes in temperature.

The slip-on open-cell foam fur-covered windshield can reduce wind-noise by up to 40 dB. The foam is synthetically engineered to block wind noise without losing high-frequency information, while also being invulnerable to UV or moisture damage. The pistol grip has a soft-feel grip molded into the handle to prevent twisting and slipping. The grip also includes a 3/8" thread for attaching to a boom pole. Alternatively, you can connect the grip to a camera mount via hot shoe or 1/4" thread.

What's the general maximum recording distance for basic dialogue work? How far away is it still usable with a good quality preamps?
Asked by: Stone
The general rule for getting good dialogue with any shotgun mic, is to get as close as possible to the subject. 5 to 6 feet would be the maximum distance, based on surrounding ambient sound, that is suggested.

question

Why does this description contradict itself re: midrange frequencies and off-axis performance?
Asked by: Brian
Coloration vs Rejection. It has smooth off-axis rejection without coloring the sound. It sounds like it simply attenuates off axis dialogue while keeping the frequency response consistent. It feels neutral along the spectrum, but just enjoys a transparent affinity towards dialogue frequencies. Essentially, it's very forgiving while still being directional.

question

why is the grey version cost more than the blue one?
Asked by: Anonymous
The standard surface finish color of the CMIT 5U is blue. The CMIT5U is available in Antracite Gray as a special order item and custom made from Schoeps. Functionally both units are identical.
