The Sanken CS-1 is a compact, professional shotgun microphone designed for film, video and broadcast applications. It's slim, compact design conveniently allows on-camera mounting without obstructing the camera's view. The CS-1's cardioid polar pattern and off-axis rejection combine to deliver focused, targeted signal while eliminating noise and ambiance at the perimeter of the capsule. The microphone delivers narrow angle directivity in all frequency ranges to ensure accurate sonic performance and rejection with any signal source. A high SPL rating of 137 dB allows reproduction of transient signals with no distortion, even at close proximity.
