For indie filmmakers, run-and-gun shooters, and TV sound recordists who need a rugged, lightweight, and tonally transparent directional mic that won't invade the frame when mounted on a camera, the Shure VP82 short shotgun microphone offers a simple, quality solution.
Outfitted with a Class-A, discrete, transformerless preamplifier, the VP82 delivers a clean and quick transient response with minimal harmonic/intermodulation distortion and no crossover distortion. Since it has a standard XLR 3-pin output and supports 11 to 52 VDC phantom powering, the microphone is a great match for professional camcorders, multitrack field recorders, and portable handheld audio recorders.
Its durable aircraft-grade aluminum alloy housing features no switches, buttons, or dials, ensuring easy operation for users of any experience level. The satin black finish impedes reflections so you won't catch light bouncing off the mic into the shot. The supplied foam windscreen is designed to provide moderate attenuation of wind noise from light breezes, fans, and HVAC systems.
