The new Smith-Victor CM1 Condenser Microphone is designed to improve the quality of sound recorded by DSRL’s and camcorders. Designed with an integrated shock mount, this unidirectional microphone features a frequency range of 38Hz ~ 20,000Hz with a sensitivity of -40dB ± 3dB/0dB=1V/Pa @ 1kHz. The reinforced ABS construction produces a durable yet lightweight microphone that is ultra portable and doesn’t add significant weight to the camera. The foot of the microphone locks securely on any standard hot shoe and features a standard 1/4-20 female thread to allow for easy mounting on a stand or extension pole. The 3.5mm mini plug allows easy connection to most DSLR’s. The Smith-Victor CM1 is powered by a single “AAA” battery (not included). Complete with a foam windscreen and an imitation fur “cattail” style windscreen, that when used with the foam windscreen allows even greater wind noise reduction, and a pouch to carry everything.
