The Sennheiser MKE 600 is a shotgun microphone designed for use with a camcorder or video DSLR.
Building on the company's extensive expertise in designing shotgun
microphones, it is able to take on even the toughest video sound
challenges, while still being compact and short relative to previous
models. With its high level of directivity, the microphone focuses on
the sounds in front of the camera, while attenuating unwanted sound
coming from the sides and rear.
An included foam windshield
reduces the effect of wind noise, while a switchable low-cut filter adds
additional wind and handling noise attenuation. The MKE 600 can be
phantom powered or operated on an AA battery for about 150 hours. An
integrated camera shoe and shock mount provides convenient on camera
mounting. The rugged and all metal housing means the microphone will
function perfectly in outdoor recording situations.
