What is the advantage of having a condenser microphone?
Condenser microphones are the most common type of microphones for recording audio. They are often used in recording studios as they have a greater ability to reproduce all of the audio of an instrument or voice. Using battery power, condenser microphones usually have a louder output – but can be more sensitive to loud sounds.

What position does the condenser microphone pick up sound from?
This microphone has a cardioid polar pattern and a super-cardioid polar pattern, which means it is more sensitive to sounds at the front of the microphone and less sensitive at the back. The pickup is based in one direction – which makes it effective for isolating unwanted sound, and also has a high resistance to feedback.

What would I use this microphone with?
This microphone is ideal as an accessory to cameras, camcorders or portable audio recorders. The multi-polar pattern will allow you to adjust the settings of the microphone to achieve the best audio recordings, such as YouTube videos, presentations, dictation or music demos with your equipment.

Is this powerful enough to pickup spoken word from 40 feet away?

Asked by: Hyatt
No, this is unlikely to pick up an unamplified signal at that range. This is designed for fitting on the top of a video camera and pick up audio from around 3-4 feet on normal mode. Increased distance is available in the long 'Tele' mode, but nowhere near 40 feet.
