The SGH-6 from Zoom offers a shotgun microphone solution for use with the H5 and H6 handheld recorders. This capsule employs three internal microphones to achieve a frequency-independent, super-cardioid polar pattern.

Zoom SGH-6 Reviews
Good but not Great
This is a great mic to add to your H5 arsenal but I was dissapointed in the amount of background noise this picked up even when adjusting on the H5. Not as directional as I would like, still picking up more ambience than I would like.
Great buy for your zoom recorder
This is amazing. I can pick up whispers even with background noise from 15 or more feet
SGH-6 Shotgun Mic
Superb mic that makes the H5 a great recording device. Only thing missing is a protective cover which could protect this device when not in use. The base recording unit H5 does have its own plastic container.
Recording Bird Sounds
I am quite happy with the Zoom H5 and SGH-6 shotgun mic combination. I use them in the field for recording bird sounds. Their compact and integrated design makes it easier for me to carry and use them in the field along with other equipment such as cameras, spotting scope, and binoculars. My current challenge is to find a decent case for them which I can attach to my camera/binocular harness. The Zoom case for the H5 does not accommodate the length of the SGH-6, just the basic mic. While I may not be able to achieve the distance I might like with a parabolic mic, this combination is a good compromise considering the reasonable cost, compact size, and the light weight.
Great Shotgun Mic add on for the H6
Good clarity for not an expensive mic
I give 4 star generously will deserve 3.5 star
Yes is working but this is not high quality shotgun microphone. But for this price is just OK
Maybe a tad expensive BUT it works amazingly well and extremely convenient. The convenience is what makes it worth every cent.
Definitely recommend this
Quality is great
