Advanced digital signal processing makes it possible to offer three switchable directivity patterns in one versatile microphone, allowing you to select the area for audio pickup depending on the requirements of your shoot.
Simple switching operation
Choose the most suitable pickup pattern with an easy-to-reach switch
A simple three-way switch on the rear panel of the microphone lets you quickly switch back and forth among the three pickup patterns, giving you the flexibility to adapt to your shooting requirements.
Super-directional: focused front area
Ideal for interviews or selfies, the super-directional pattern collects sound from a focused area in front of the microphone, effectively suppressing sounds from off-axis and behind the camera.
Unidirectional: wide frontal range
Perfect for multi-person conversations, the unidirectional pattern captures sound from a wide field in front of the microphone while minimising pickup from behind.
Omnidirectional: sound from any direction
The omnidirectional pattern picks up audio equally from all directions, useful for recording environmental sounds or the voice of the camera operator.
