Electret condenser shotgun microphone for battery- or phantom power
Developed for professional indoor and outdoor audio recordings, the MCE 85 combines superior quality and excellent polar patterns in a rugged yet lightweight aluminium housing.
The MCE 85 can be mounted to film cameras, DSLR cameras, digital camcorders or in combination with a microphone boom or as a handheld for high-quality recordings.
Thanks to the supercardioid / lobe polar pattern the MCE 85 BA can be used to record a sound source very precisely without disturbing ambient noise. A high-quality electret condenser microphone capsule inside the shotgun microphone ensures that exceptionally precise sound reproduction. The included low cut filter can be switched on and off. It eliminates low frequencies and compensates for mechanical vibrations and proximity effect.
The MCE 85 BA can be powered from any balanced phantom source. If there is no balanced phantom source available, the microphone can be powered with a regular AA battery. The DC/DC converter ensures that the microphone signal remains constant even if the battery power starts to decrease, guaranteeing consistent, brilliant recording quality.
An extensive range of accessories is available.
