    The Audio-Technica 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.

    Provides the narrow acceptance angle desirable for long-distance sound pickup.
    Excellent sound rejection from the sides and rear of mic.
    Tailored response minimizes camera and handling noise.
    Operates on phantom power only.
    RoHS compliant—free from all substances specified in the EU directive on hazardous substances.

    Did You Know....... Many top record producers, when recording vocals, will use a dynamic mic for up close vocals and a heavily compressed shotgun mic about five feet away. It's true! The dynamic mic not only captures part of the final sound, but is also useful for giving the artist something to focus on, keeping a fairly consistent position relative to the shotgun mic. Have a shotgun mic on hand for your next vocal session....it could be the goldmine you've been seeking!

        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.
