Created after intensive field research and from extensive user feedback, the BP4073 short shotgun microphone is ideal for creating a high quality audio sound recording. It is intended for documentaries, professional recordings in the wild, and theater sound reinforcement. Highly directional, the BP4073 has low self noise and extremely focused sound recording.
The low-cut position reduces sensitivity to ambient low frequency noise such as traffic noise, ventilation, reverberation of the room or mechanical vibrations transmitted through the recording device.
Especially suitable for mounting on a fishpole boom or outdoors on professional camera, the BP4073 weighs only 99 grams and has a length of just 23.3 cm.
Its very narrow directivity provides the narrow acceptance angle needed to capture far away sound whilst maintaining excellent off-axis noise rejection. The BP4073 guarantees very specific audio capture with high intelligibility.
Robust microphone design made of lightweight aluminum alloy, which allows it to be positioned it on a boom, a camera or on a tripod.
Switchable low-cut filter for better insulation of unwanted noise.
The BP4073 combines a directional capsule (gradient) and an interference tube to remove the sound from the rear.
Comes with a clip, a foam windscreen, two O-rings and a protective carry case.
