The Video Shooter’s Audio Kit provides everything to start shooting your vlogs, interviews, documentaries and more. Every video shooter needs a shotgun microphone and a wireless microphone in their gear bag; this bundle includes both.
Included in this Bundle:
SMX-15 Powered Shotgun Video Microphone
The SMX-15 is perfect for anyone shooting video with their DSLR or mirrorless camera. Designed to mount on camera, it’s directional shotgun pick-up pattern focuses in on the sound of whatever you are pointing at, making it an great solution for run-and-gun video work. On the back of the microphone: gain control switch allows you to dial in the right audio level to suit the environment while minimizing noise; the low-cut filter switch gives you an optional tool to reduce low frequency background noise like wind or HVAC systems; finally the auto-on feature gives you one less thing to think about while you shoot video, turning the microphone on and off automatically with the camera.
PRO-XD Digital Wireless Microphone System
Sometimes you just need to get a microphone really up-close to your speaking subject, but the situation doesn’t allow for booming a microphone. That’s when you need a wireless system. The PRO-XD gives you a lavalier microphone that you can clip to your shirt which connects to a small transmitter that you can wear on your belt or in your pocket. The wireless receiver is equally small and mounts right on top of your camera, connecting into the microphone input. The wireless signal is digital, which has the advantage of being unaffected by traditional radio interference and capable of a higher quality audio (48 kHz/16 bit). The system is easy to use, with automatic synching between the transmitter and receiver. Available volume control on the receiver allows you to set the perfect audio level.
In addition to it’s compatibility with DSLR and mirrorless cameras, the PRO-XD comes with an adapter cable to allow you to use it with a smartphone or tablet. No special apps are needed, just record with the on-board video app. Compatibility extends up to the latest iPhone X, Samsung Galaxy S8 and more. Plus, the PRO-XD’s small size makes it very convenient to use with mobile devices and easy to travel with.
