As most DSLRs and compact cameras can capture video now, hahnel have designed an external microphone that sits on top of your camera's hotshoe which should improve the quality of the sound your camera records.
The MK100 features:
A 14mm Electret Condenser Capsule which produces high quality broadcast sound with a uni-directional pickup.
A 3-position volume sensitivity switch.
Is fitted with a 'shock mount' which absorbs unwanted mechanical vibrations from the camera.
The fitted hot shoe adaptor with 3/8” thread means the Mk100 fits easily onto any camera, boompole, monopod & tripod.
AAA batteries are also included, giving over 100 hours of running time.
The MK100 Microphone will be available in the shops from early-mid November with an RRP of £89.99.
