Polsen SCL-1075 overview

  • 1Description

The Polsen SCL-1075 is a camera mount condenser shotgun microphone that allows you to capture clear, natural audio with your DSLR or camcorder.

The SCL-1075 attaches to your camera's shoe mount or to a boom pole and plugs into the camera's audio input jack. A switch allows you to change between normal (cardioid) and tele (supercardioid) modes, giving the microphone a wider or a more directional polar pattern to optimize the sound capture for different environments.

Designed to reject ambient noise and focus on the subject in front of the microphone, the SCL-1075 is perfect for "run-and-gun" productions like recording interviews and events indoors and in the field.

Excellent pick-up for intelligible vocals
Great for interviews, ENG and more
Adjustable settings: Normal mode for close and mid-distance pick-up and Tele mode for long-range
3.5mm connector plugs into your video camera input jack
Runs on single AA battery (included)
Also includes shoe-mount microphone clip, boom-pole microphone clip and AA battery

    Polsen SCL-1075 reviews

    SCL-1075 Camera Mount Condenser Shotgun Microphone is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 83.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great mic, but beware! The mic itself is fantastic for the price. Gets decent run and gun audio like the rode vid mics. Tele mode has a decent output and the hiss (background noise) is at a managable level. I brought this mic to a shoot and it worked well the first day, the second day I woke up and powered it onno sound. I Troubleshooted for a bit, and it was definitely a short, or another electrical fault in the mic's circuitry. No sound, even when yelling into it (rare for any mic). The shoo was in easy conditions, 70F weather, and was stored inside overnight, no reason to fail except for manufactural defect. I'm gonna return it, and get another one. If it happens again, I'm gonna get another mic.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Could have been a contender OK I have used this product a few times (4 to be exact). The first time It worked once and Ioved it. The second time I turned it on and tried to use it the mic didn't work. So I wrote a bad review and I was sent another. The next time I used it, I loved it again and put it away till another even came up that required this type of mic. I'll be honest this is a great mic but it just can't seem to keep working. I am a very careful person and still have fully functional gear from the 80's. But this mic, just doesn't want to work for very long. I really wish it did but the mic has no light so you have to assume it's working. And I for one don't want to have to check every time I record if the mic is working. I have had it sittting on my desk trying to figure out what to do with it but nothing comes to mind. I hate writing bad reviews when it's not the device but the design. I wish I had better luck with it but sorry. The mic is not always going to work.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from A good value, but with a flaw Purchased this microphone to use with my DSLR along for personal use with another wireless microphone and it was decent audio for the price of the microphone. However, the major flaw that I found is there is no power light to warn you of when the battery dies. At some point during my recording the battery died and the audio drops out. The only way to find out that the audio is gone is to playback the video. There are probably plenty of ways to prevent this from happening, but a simple power indicator LED would have made this product worth purchasing (and 4 star rating). I returned the microphone and went with the Nikon ME-1 since it does not need power with my camera.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Decent, but not the most reliable Bought this in Sept 2014 to capture for my video productions. Audio was above quality from the camera I was using, polar patterns fit their description. Didn't use tele, but when I was testing it, found it brought in more ambient noise, which is to be expected. Beginning this year, thing just up and died. I didn't really abuse it, though the exterior construction look and feel more than adequate to handle wear and tear. Switched out batteries, still dead. And seems like that's the case with a lot of other complaints too. Definitely worth the money, as long as it holds up, but I guess the price nearly guarantees that it won't.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Using with the Blackmagic pocket cam You're not going to go crazy over this mic, but it's worth the price for sure. There's no battery light...get used to that. There's no way to tell when the batteries run out...just have plenty and put a new one in if you're worried. It'd be great if this mic came with a female plug and you could just use your own cable...I'm a little worried about that cable wearing out, but we'll see. It seems a bit flimsy right there. Otherwise, the mic works great...it has a switch to do two different patterns...one a little more omni than the other so it functions really great for small camera use. Keep in mind that the Blackmagic camera doesn't have a hot shoe...so you'll need to buy a cold shoe adapter.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad for beginners It's pretty good for doing interviews and review videos. Fits on my Canon 60D. Loving the sound quality from the shoots, so I would highly recommend this mic for beginners. The only downside is that there is no battery indicator on the mic that lets you know if the battery is getting low, so chances are it may die at anytime during the shoot and you would have no sound at all, which is pretty scary if you've been shooting for hours. Just be sure to playback your videos to make sure you have sound before moving on to the next shot is what I recommend. But other then that great Microphone.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor quality We bought 8 of the Polsen SCL-1075 mics and within 4 months 5 had died and just stopped working. We tried new batteries, different cameras and had the same results. 1 out of the 8 is still working and the other 2 are still in the box and have not been used. Very disappointed that none of them are working.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I knew It Was Cheap, But Not This Cheap I bought this mic less than 30 days ago; I've used it about 3 times and it no longer works. I assume some internal cord was disconnected. I bought it because I had some extra money in B&H Rewards so I basically got it for free. For the little bit it did work the audio was alright. Theres no way to tell when it's going to die, which is the biggest flaw ever.
