The SMX-30 was engineered to be the ultimate video microphone with outstanding audio quality, appealing design, ergonomic form factor, and all of the functional features one expects in a top-of-the-line, camera-mounted microphone.
The SMX-15 Powered Shotgun Video Microphone was engineered to produce excellent sound quality for video recorded by DSLR and other compact cameras. The microphone element is the same used by Azden’s professional shotgun microphones, the SGM-250 an SGM-250P, and is capable of capturing broadcast quality sound. The acoustically tuned slots of the shotgun barrel give the SMX-15 it’s super-cardioid polar pattern which allows you to focus on sound in front of the camera, while reducing capture of extraneous noise from the rest of the environment.
The pick-up pattern of the built-in microphone on camcorders and DSLR cameras is omni-directional, meaning that it picks up all sounds in every direction equally, no matter which direction you point the camera. The SGM-990 is a 6″ long directional, or “zoom” microphone with 2 switchable sound pick-up patterns, “Long” and “Short.” Use “Long” to focus on your sound source or pick up sound from a distance. Use “Short” for when your sound source is close or covers a broader field. Both settings will provide rejection of unwanted sound from the sides and the back. The SGM-990 has a working range of 20-40 feet, uses 1 “AAA” battery, and comes with a windscreen and shoe mount microphone clip.
Vastly improve the sound of your videos with Azden microphones; proudly handcrafted in Japan. The SMX-10 is a directional stereo microphone capable of capturing natural stereo sound with reduced noise compared to a camera’s built-in microphone. The included shock mount holder facilitates on-camera mounting and isolates the microphone from handling and motor noise. The included windscreen helps reduce wind noise during outdoor shooting. The SMX-10 will perform great in any situation and is best suited for action videos, musical performances and nature scenes.
Designed to work with today’s high performance DSLR cameras, the SMX-5 offers high quality stereo sound in a super compact, lightweight design. The unique, unobtrusive vertical case places the microphone elements away from the camera body for smooth response. A single “AAA” battery with a run-time of 1000 hours supplies power. The SMX-5 is fitted with a stereo mini plug DSLR output cable, On/Off switch and integrated shoe-mount holder. A removable windscreen is included.
