Sanken Introduces Four-Inch Shotgun Microphone

Sanken has debuted the CS-M1, a microphone the company said sets new standards of sound quality for a short shotgun mic.

From professional boom pole drama and film location recording to DSLR camera mounted applications, Sanken said the CS-M1 delivers pristine quality audio with sharp directivity. At only 4-inches in length and weighing less than two ounces, the unobtrusive CS-M1 can be used in tight mic situations to faithfully capture the story.

Like all Sanken shotguns, it is rugged and dependable with a wide range of applications where sound clarity and noise rejection are critical requirements.

The CS-M1’s lightweight, rugged design and unique components assure optimum resistance to humidity and adverse temperature changes. The mic is especially suited to shoots where tight patterns and premium sound are the goal. It can be camera mounted without interfering with even a short lens.

The mic is priced at $895.
