what is a shotgun mic

Glad you asked. I came across these as I researched podcasting and am now in the “I need one” phase. Anyhow, shotgun mics come in a variety of sizes, from short broad-patterned varieties to long models designed for extended distances. They all have a tight polar pattern. This means they are more focused, meaning they reject off-axis sound and pick up audio from a very narrow beam directly in front the microphone. Which is why they are so popular for film and video production.

Shotgun mics are popular for more than video production. Recording engineers use shotgun microphones to hit specific spots or instruments, eg. kick drums and occasionally vocals. Sound engineers will use them for distance when getting up close isn’t an option.

smartphone rig- FILMMAKER GRIP

The S1 is the first professional smartphone rig that works as a tripod mount, camera grip and traveler stand. The S1 will hold almost any smartphone model from 48mm to 93mm in width thanks to its adjustable grip. A removable aluminum extension adapter weight at the end adds to the stability. The weight provides more surface area to “grip”. This also stabilizes the device making your shots less shaky. The strap that fits between the weight and the grip also helps with stabilization. Remove the weight to utilize the brass tripod mount. Use this mount to attach the device to a full size or miniature size monopod or tripod.

Introducing the Next Generation Handheld Digital Film Cameras in the BLACKMAGIC POCKET CINEMA CAMERA 4K. Back when I was a teacher, not that long ago, I ran a weekly news broadcast as well as “coaching” a student entry into a state wide film contest. We won this contest and I received as coach a championship ring, I gave the ring to the student director because he needed no help from me except paperwork, my name, and my presence. All of that has nothing to do with this camera because we didn’t have it. But the work and film we could have produced if our district had actually given us a second thought and some support- good god these kids were brilliant.
