With a DPA mic toolkit, audio professionals are guaranteed a consistent sound from all mics, meaning post-production can easily swap between the signals from each mic without compensating for different sonic characteristics. The 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun
was built to withstand harsh conditions, such as water, wind, dust, heat and cold, among other familiar filming challenges.
Configured with both a MicroDot connector and an adapter for wired or wireless applications, the 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun
is a truly flexible solution. A swivel mechanism at the end of the gooseneck allows sound experts to find the ideal mic pick-up angle. Used wirelessly with a transmitter, the mic can be hidden virtually anywhere within a production scene. These features are especially important for mounting in tight filming locations, like a car, and ensures mixers can capture pristine audio from as close to the source as possible, without the mic being visible to audiences. For example, with the 4097 Micro Shotgun, a sound engineer can clip the mic transmitter to a sun visor and point the microphone toward the actors.
“A good plant mic, that is easy to set up, is very useful to have,” says Film Sound Engineer Allan Holmberg, who played a significant role in advising on the development of the 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun
. “I often have to move the mics quickly from one scene to another, so being able to mount them and move them quickly is vital to the job I do.”
