The Polsen VM-150 DSLR-Video Microphone is a sleek and compact directional condenser microphone that is designed to deliver professional-sounding audio to a DSLR, video camera, or audio recorder.
Unlike omnidirectional microphones built into most cameras, the VM-150’s supercardioid polar pattern and shotgun design offer great clarity and focus when recording voices or dialogue. The VM-150 is optimised to focus on the sound directly in front of it while rejecting off-axis sound, making it an ideal microphone for anyone recording speech or dialogue in noisy environments. Other features like adjustable gain sensitivity and a high-pass filter further ensure clear and natural sound with minimal background noise or rumble.
The compact and lightweight design assures that the VM-150 will never weigh down your rig or extend out into the picture frame. And with an integrated shockmount and included shoe mount adapter, the VM-150 is ideal for professionals recording in the field or in a studio, but it will also enhance home video recordings.
