Azden SGM-250CX Compact Shotgun Microphone



The Azden SGM-250CX is a short-length, compact shotgun microphone that easily mounts on cinema and mirrorless cameras, for film, documentary, interview or broadcast applications. Specifically tuned to preserve the natural qualities of a speaking subject, it features a supercardioid polar pattern and a custom-designed acoustic tube with high-precision phase-canceling slots that minimize the recording of extraneous noise while focusing on the sound in front of the camera.

The SGM-250CX is equipped with an electret condenser capsule that is powered by standard 48V phantom power. The highly sensitive capsule delivers a flat frequency-response (20 Hz to 20 kHz) with low self-noise and 130 dB SPL, for accurate audio capture.

Handcrafted in Japan, the SGM-250CX is housed in a brass/aluminum alloy case that improves durability and rejects ambient radio frequencies (RF). The mic comes with a 13"-long, hardwired XLR mic cable for convenient connection to a camera's microphone input. Included are a foam windscreen, and an SMH-X shockmount with two diameter expander sheets that provide a secure hold for your mic, whether you run-and-gun, mount it to a pistol grip or to a boompole.
