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

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.

The ssh model is described as having an hyper-cardioid polar pattern and the sgh a super-cardioid polar pattern. Is there a functional difference?
Asked by: Morgan
The main difference between the two models is that the SGH-6 uses three internal mic capsules and has a supercardioid polar pattern for a tight, focused response and dual-mono output. The SSH-6 is a stereo mid-side shotgun microphone with two internal mic capsules which each pickup sound from a different direction in order to create a wider stereo image with more ambience than a mic that picks up sound from one direction. One capsule from the SSH-6 is extremely focused on picking up sound on center and can be combined with its bidirectional capsule which is able to pickup sound from the left or right side to create a spacious stereo image that can be mono-compatible. For example, you can record dialogue with the center microphone and then mix in the desired amount of ambient sound captured by the side microphone. Both models are very good for picking up dialog. The SGH-6 is for one direction and SSH-6 is also capable of stereo imaging.

question

Considering a shotgun mic for my H6. Would there be any reason to own both the SSH and SGH versions? Is the SSH just an SGH with stereo side recording capabilities?
Asked by: James
Both the SSH-6 and SGH-6 are shotgun microphones, capable of capturing audio at farther distances than a traditional handheld microphone. The benefit of the SSH-6 is that it captures audio in stereo; a benefit mostly used in music and ambient sound recording. If you are just recording dialogue, the SGH-6 would be more than adequate.

question

Which lot of Rycote form matches this mic?
Asked by: Rikiya M.
If you're looking for suspension, pretty much any Rycote with a hot shoe adapter will work with the H6.<a href= http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=&sku=1050991&Q=&is=REG&A=details target= _blank >http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=&sku=1050991&Q=&is=REG&A=details</a>
