What is a shotgun microphone?

shotgun microphoneA shotgun microphone is a directional microphone that can be aimed at the source of the sound, helping to pick up the target audio without as much background noise. They are named after their shape, which represents the barrel of a shotgun.

What is a shotgun microphone used for?

A shotgun microphone is used mainly for when the person speaking will be directly next to the microphone, but for situations where a lapel or handheld microphone may be distracting, such as giving a talk, panel discussion, or lecture. The shotgun microphone will often sound much more natural than a lapel mic. They are also great for those who don't want the mic to show on the actor or interviewee.

Types of Shotgun mics

You can often choose between a Supercardioids polar pattern (narrow range, audio sensitive right in front, small rear sensitivity), Hypercardioids (even narrower range than Super, with extended rear pickup), and Ultracardioids (the most narrow front pickup, very difficult to use on extended handles or booms).

How to use a shotgun microphone?

Shotgun microphones are really easy to use, simply attach them to your camera setup, plug them in, and adjust the mic settings to suit your needs, and you're good to go!

You want to try and get as close to the audio source as possible, and minimise the background noise as much as you can to get the clearest audio.
