Sennheiser just unveiled a new camera microphone at IBC in Amsterdam: the MKE 600 shotgun microphone.
Online PR News – 08-September-2012 – Old Lyme, Conn. – Whether it is an afternoon at the zoo, a special holiday video or your very own video documentary, a video camera is always a treasured companion on such special occasions and creative projects. And discerning video enthusiasts often have the highest demands when it comes to sound quality in particular. To meet these demands, audio specialist Sennheiser just unveiled a new camera microphone at IBC in Amsterdam: the MKE 600 shotgun microphone.
“The MKE 600 was developed for video journalists who want superior sound quality coupled with uncomplicated handling – benefits that amateur video enthusiasts will also appreciate,” said Kai Lange, product manager wired microphones at Sennheiser. “In developing the MKE 600, we paid particular attention to achieving a high level of directivity and a balanced sound.”

For outdoor videos, a ‘blimp’ (MZH 600) – a combined foam/hairy cover windshield – which reduces wind noise more effectively than a foam windshield - is available as an optional accessory. A further option is a coiled connecting cable (KA 600) from an XLR-3 connector to a 3.5 mm jack plug.
The MKE 600 will be available at B&H Photo / Video beginning in late September.
