DPA 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun Microphone

With its supercardioid polar plot, the DPA 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun Microphone offers a highly-directional pick-up pattern as well as low self noise and high sensitivity. The mic is capable of handling high SPLs, which allows it to deliver undistorted natural sound, even when users speak loudly or yell. With a linear response, low distortion and an extremely large dynamic range, it sounds great no matter how challenging the environment. In addition, dialog and background noise off to the side (off-axis) of the microphone preserves the audio quality; it just drops in level.

  • • Small footprint, lightweight
  • • Enhances speech intelligibility
  • • Built-in shock mount
  • • Resistant to moisture, extreme temperatures and humidity
  • • Extensions and range of mounting options available (4099 series of clips)
  • • Specific interview kit for broadcast)

The 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun Mic is outfitted specifically so that it can be used in difficult filming locations like a car. Its foam windscreen protects it from wind noise, even when windows are down (due to tight spaces and camera placement). The built-in shock mount is also particularly useful when filming in a moving car. It has a small, slim, unobtrusive footprint and a black matte, non-reflective surface, which diminishes reflections from lights, making it even easier on the film crew.

Product Description

The 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun Microphone offers a highly-directional pick-up pattern as well as low self-noise and high sensitivity. The mic is capable of handling high SPLs, which allows it to deliver undistorted natural sound, even when users speak loudly or yell.

The 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun Mic uses a small-diaphragm, pre-polarized condenser capsule with a supercardioid pickup pattern mounted deep inside a small interference tube, which sits inside of a small replaceable foam windscreen.

The interference tube used increases the mic’s directionality while maintaining a flat on-axis frequency response and consistent off-axis response. Increased directionality, combined with good off-axis rejection, allows the microphone to isolate what should be picked up while attenuating sounds from the sides and rear.

The 4097 Interview Kit pairs with any DAD Wired or Wireless adaptor giving you complete flexibility to integrate with your current setup (NB: Adaptor sold separately)
