Dedicated stereo microphone designed to expand the sound recording capabilities of compatible Nikon cameras.
A smart alternative to a camera’s built-in microphone, it suppresses unwanted operational noise such as autofocus to let you capture movies in superb stereo sound. A windscreen and low-cut filter switch prevent interference from wind or low-frequency noise and it boasts a short body for comfortable operation when shooting.
Conveniently powered via the camera, it offers the ideal way to record crisp, clear sound.
