SUMMARY

The Azden SMX-15 Shotgun Video Mic and Furry Windshield Cover Kit from B&H includes an Azden powered supercardioid shotgun video microphone, a foam windshield, and an SWS-15 furry windshield cover. It can be used on DSLRs and other compact cameras for capturing audio in outdoor and indoor environments.

The microphone is capable of capturing broadcast-quality sound and has the same element used by Azden's SGM-250 and SGM-250P microphones. The acoustically tuned slots of the shotgun barrel give the SMX-15 the ability to focus on sound in front of the camera, while reducing capture of extraneous noise from the rest of the environment.

The furry windshield cover was designed to provide maximum protection against wind noise and is made to slip over the SMX-15's foam windscreen. It delivers acoustically transparent results.

 

HIGHLIGHTS

Azden SMX-15 Powered Shotgun Video Microphone 

 

The SMX-15 from Azden is a battery-powered supercardioid shotgun microphone engineered to produce pro-quality sound for DSLRs and other compact cameras. Featuring the same microphone element as Azden's professional shotguns (SGM-250 & SGM-250P), the SMX-15 is capable of capturing broadcast-quality sound, and allows you to focus on sound in front of the camera while reducing the capture of extraneous noise from the rest of the environment.

 

Using the built-in +20 dB gain booster to get a strong clean audio signal into your camera, the SMX-15 minimizes the need to turn up noisy preamps usually associated with DSLRs, and also includes a -10 dB pad to protect against distortion when recording in loud environments such as live concerts and motorsport events.

 

Furthermore, the microphone has a wide frequency response of 40 Hz to 20 kHz and has a full, natural sound. There is a low-cut filter switch for reducing low frequencies below 120 Hz, which is useful for mitigating noise caused by air conditioners, wind, and traffic noise.

 

Powered by two AA batteries, you can operate the microphone for approximately 24 hours with no degradation of sound quality. The battery-indicator LED light lets you know when it's time to change batteries, providing up to a 1-hour warning beforehand.

 

Finally, an integrated shock-absorbing shoe mount isolates the microphone from camera-motor- and handling noise. The mount is designed to fit the standard camera shoe and comes with 1/4"-20 threads at the bottom for mounting to boom poles and other camera accessories.

 

Gain Control

The audio controls on DSLR cameras are limited, if they exist at all. And DSLRs are notoriously known to have low-quality microphone preamps that add noise to the video soundtrack when the gain is turned up. Azden's SMX-15 has a +20 dB gain booster so you can get a strong, clean audio signal into your camera, minimizing the need to turn up the noisy preamp

 

Frequency Response

The SMX-15 has a wide frequency response ranging from 40 Hz to 20 kHz, so the audio you capture will sound full and natural

 

Power

Powered by two AA batteries, which is a lower-cost option than the 9V battery used in some competitor microphones, the SMX-15 can achieve 24 hours of operation with a single set of batteries with absolutely no degradation of sound quality

 

Maximize Battery Life

Maximize battery life by using the unique "Auto" power setting. When set to Auto, the SMX-15 can detect when a camera is on and will automatically power on and off with the camera (requires a mic input that provides plug-in power). Ever leave your microphone on by accident to discover that the batteries are dead the next time you try to use it? Eliminate that possibility by always leaving the SMX-15 in "Auto" mode

 

Integrated Shock-Absorbing Shoe Mount

 

Integrated into the design of the SMX-15 is a custom-made, shock-absorbing shoe mount to isolate the microphone from camera-motor- and handling noise

 

Azden SWS-15 Furry Windshield Cover

 

The SWS-15 Furry Windshield Cover from Azden was designed specifically for the SMX-15 microphone to provide maximum protection against wind noise in outdoor environments. The cover is made to slip over the SMX-15's included, custom-fit foam windscreen and delivers acoustically transparent results.
