The ECM-CG50BP is a short shotgun electret condenser microphone with a super-cardioid directional response ideally suited for capturing medium range sound sources. The ECM-CG50BP is best-suited for use with camcorders such as the Sony HVR-HD1000 or HXR-MC2000. It's supplied with a shock-mounted cold-shoe mic holder, furry windscreen and short non-detachable cable including a 1/8" stereo mini plug. The ECM-CG50BP can be powered by plug-on powering or internal AA battery.
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!
