    SMX-30V - Overview

    With the SMX-30V, Azden takes their innovation of a switchable stereo/mono microphone to another level by incorporating a mixing dial. The first video microphone of its kind, the SMX-30V lets the user choose from using 100% of the stereo microphone, 100% of the mono-shotgun microphone, or any mix in between. Recording a dialogue scene but want to incorporate some of the environment's ambience Mix in a little of the stereo microphone. Recording a musical performance but want to tighten up the center stereo image Mix in some audio from the mono-shotgun microphone. The possibilities are endless!

    A Dual Microphone With Complete Control
    The SMX-30V is like having a stereo microphone, a shotgun microphone and an audio mixer all combined into one unit. To achieve this, there are three microphone elements in total: two located at the top, angled at 90§ for capturing a realistic stereo image, and one inside a 4.5-inch long interference tube for directional audio capture. Combined with a stepless mixing knob, you have complete control over how much signal from each microphone to send to your camera.

    Swiveling Shock-Mount
    Another unique feature on the SMX-30V is the swiveling shock-mount, which enables rotation of the microphone 30§ to the left or right. This is a handy feature any time your sound source is not centered in-frame, allowing you to aim the microphone at your subject, thereby getting the most direct sound possible. In addition, the mount itself is designed to absorb vibrations and isolate the microphone from handling noise. The bottom of the mount allows for attachment to a standard camera cold-shoe slot, or via a ¬"-20 threaded stud.

    Improved Battery Life
    Battery life in the SMX-30V has been improved over the previous model to last up to 100 hours on a pair of alkaline AA batteries.(Batteries sold separately)

    Detachable Output Cable
    Audio output via a 3.5 mm mini-jack provides flexibility to connect various third party audio cables. A high-quality, coiled microphone output cable is included with the microphone.
