Electret condenser shotgun microphone.

The MCE 86 II shotgun microphones can be used for video recordings, lecterns or theatre applications. The microphones are extremely light and rugged and therefore ideal for mounting onto cameras or camcorders. They can be used for outdoor applications and in studios with fish pole booms or as handhelds.The electrostatic transducer element and the hypercardioid/lobe polar pattern result in an excellent polar pattern with high sensitivity. Due to its construction and integrated active filter the microphone is insensitive towards wind and vibrations caused by zoom motors. Each sound source is reproduced absolute clearly. The MCE 86 II can be powered from balanced phantom source. If phantom power is not available the MCE 86 II S version should be used. This microphone can be phantom powered or battery powered with an integrated 1.5 V battery.
