Azden Stereo Mono Switchable Video Microphone

With the addition of a mixing dial, Azden SMX-30V lets the user choose to use the stereo microphone, the mono-shotgun microphone, or a combination of both. Use a minimal percentage of the stereo microphone when you wish to add the environment's ambience to your dialogue scene or raise the stereo high when you are recording a performance. Enjoy limitless options.

A Dual Microphone With Complete Control

The perfect combination of a shotgun microphone and an audio mixer, the SMX-30 has three microphone elements. Two microphones are located at the top. They are angled at 90-degree and capture a realistic stereo image. The one on the inside has a 4.5-inch long interference tube for directional audio capture. Add to that a stepless mixing knob, and you can control the signal transmission.

Swiveling Shock-Mount

The swiveling shock-mount aids the rotation of the microphone 30 degrees to the left or right. It allows the user to aim the microphone at the subject. The mount absorbs vibrations and isolates handling noise. It can attach itself to a standard camera cold-shoe or can be attached using a 1/4-20 inch threaded stud.

Isolating Shock Mount

The isolating shock mount is made up of an unbreakable material. It successfully controls the vibration associated with camera handling. Ideally placed on the top of a camera’s cold shoe, it comes with a threaded 1/4 - 20 inch tap ideal for boom pole and accessory bar mounting.

Improved Battery Life

Obtain up to 100 hours of battery life with two alkaline AA batteries.

Detachable Output Cable

Easily connect to various third-party audio cables with the 3.5mm mini jack. Included with the microphone is a high-quality, coiled microphone output cable.

Low-Cut Filter

The Low-Cut Filter (or High-Pass Filter) efficiently mitigates low-frequency noise from sources such as HVAC Systems, wind, or passing cars.

Auto Power

Use the Auto option to automatically switch on and off the microphone with your camera, thereby conserving its battery.

3-Step Gain Control

The microphone comes with 3-step gain control that has +20 dB, 0, and -10 dB settings. Cancel noisy mic preamps, or simply boost quiet audio by adding 20 dB of gain to the microphone output. Reduce the gain by 10 dB to protect against distortion in noisy surroundings.
