    Audio-Technica’s AT875R is designed for video production and broadcast (ENG/EFP) audio acquisition. Audio-Technica’s shortest shotgun microphone, it mounts conveniently on a DV camcorder without adding noticeable heft, and is ideal for use with compact digital cameras. This high-performance microphone offers a narrow acceptance angle of line + gradient design. It also features smooth, natural-sounding on-axis audio quality and excellent off-axis rejection of sound arriving from the sides and rear of mic.

        Comments about AUDIO-TECHNICA Audio Technica AT875R Line plus Gradient Condenser Microphone:

        The AT875R performs very well for its price. But I won't say much about that, because it is easy to find audio samples online and hear for yourself. What sets this mic apart is its ability to operate from a low voltage power source. The mic is spec'd for a minimum supply voltage of 11 volts, but it operates quite happily on as little as 2.4 volts, as supplied by the plug-in power mic ports of many camcorders and DSLRs. You just need a cable with 2.5-mm or 3.5-mm plug for your camera and an XLR connector for the mic, wired as described in Audio-Technica's own FAQ on this web site, "How do you unbalance a balanced audio line so you can drive an unbalanced input?" Wire XLR pin 2 to the tip and the ring, and XLR pins 1 and 3 to the sleeve. Operating the mic at a lower voltage must alter its performance somehow, but I've noticed no reduction in performance. My guess is that there is a reduction of the maximum SPL before distortion that would only have an impact in very loud settings, and also a very slight reduction in the sensitivity. Powering the mic from the camera adds a huge amount of convenience, because you no longer need to worry about keeping batteries charged, turning a mic on and off, or dealing with external converters or pre-amplifiers. I use the AT875R with a Panasonic GH2. Others have reported using it with the GH1 and the Canon T2i. The AT875R is more sensitive than many mics, which helps to compensates for the poor performance of the pre-amps in many cameras. I don't think you can find a better sounding directional on-camera mic with this price and this level of convenience.
