The Deity Condenser Shotgun Microphone Location Kit from Aputure combines the Deity condenser shotgun microphone with a Rycote Shockmount and a windshield. It can be used to capture broadcast-quality sound for video and film production, in the studio or in the field.
The Deity features a supercardioid polar pattern that provides directivity and minimizes surrounding ambience sounds. Its design preserves the tonal balance between the direct "on-axis" sound and the "off-axis" room sound, making it easier to mix your audio in post-production. The circuitry's low inherent self-noise (12 dB/A-weighted, 24 dB/CCIR) lets you capture natural-sounding speech and dialog.
Engineered to withstand the rigors of run-and-gun-style recording, the Deity is machined from solid brass and features a gold-coated PCB board and a moisture-resistant capsule. The Rycote Shockmount with pistol grip provides isolation against handling and cable noise while the Aputure windshield offers an additional layer of protection against wind noise. The kit comes with a waterproof, air-pressure-balanced case to keep your microphone safe during storage or travel. Also included are a mic clip and a foam windscreen.
Includes Rycote Shockmount with handle – provides isolation against handling and cable noise
Includes Aputure windshield – offers an additional layer of protection against wind noise
Supercardioid pattern provides directivity and minimizes surrounding ambience sounds
Low coloration of off-axis sonic characteristics – provides ideal tonal balance between direct sound and environmental ambience, as sound sources move off the axis of the directional pattern
Low inherent self-noise for a detailed sound – resists RF (radio frequency) interferences
All-brass body with rugged coating, gold-coated PCB board – handles the rigors of working in the field, even in humid environments
Runs on 48V and 24V phantom power supplied by most professional video cameras, mixing boards, or recording devices
