Tascam TM-150SG

The TM-150SG is a shotgun condenser microphone with a highly directional polar pattern ideal for video shooting. It can be mounted on any camera with a hotshoe and will help to improve the sound of your DSLR video recordings. The line and gradient pickup pattern captures sound in the direction the mic is pointing while rejecting ambient noise and reverberation. It picks up your subject’s voice from your camera, without noise from traffic, surf, echo, and other distractions.

The mic can be powered by a single AA battery or by 48-volts phantom power and has an on/off switch to save battery power. A second switch allows to select between a flat frequency response and a low-frequency roll-off. The mic comes with shoe-mount clip, thread adapter, windscreen, storage bag and AA battery.
