The SGM-990 Shotgun Microphone with Long and Short Pickup Patterns from Azden is used to capture audio in critical applications such as meetings, weddings, TV sound, and more. It is used on video camcorders, DSLR cameras, or field recorders to capture audio. It is also compatible for use with smartphones and tablets with an optional cable (sold separately).
The SGM-990 features a 2-position switch to select between directional pickup patterns to focus on your sound source. Choose between "Long" for supercardioid or "Short" for a cardioid pickup pattern, depending on the distance from your subject. Both settings will provide rejection of unwanted sound from the sides and the back. The SGM-990's working range is 20 to 40 feet and it has a frequency response of 150 Hz to 18 kHz. It is built with a coiled cable which has a 1/8" (3.5mm) mini-jack connector, and uses one alkaline AAA battery for power. A windscreen and shoe mount are included.
