AZDEN have introduced the all new SGM-250 Professional Dual Powered Shotgun Microphone.
Available end of march from select AZDEN dealers and available everywhere mid-April 2015.
A recessed switch area has been added to the body of the microphone for comfort and feel. The features here include a switchable low-cut filter to help reduce low frequency noise, a power switch for either battery or phantom power operation and an LED battery indicator. The SGM-250 can work off standard 48V phantom power or a single AA battery with virtually no loss in performance.
Measuring 250mm in length (about 10 inches) the SGM-250 is suitable for almost any filming situation. Long enough to capture great sound from a distance while mounted to a boom pole or on top of a shoulder cam, its still unobtrusive enough to be used on compact DSLR cameras.
The SGM-250 comes with a leatherette, zippered carry pouch, shock-absorbing mic clip with shoe mount and a foam windscreen.
