With more and more video recording enthusiasts taking an increased interest in their audio quality, ProMic Laser provides sound that matches the high-definition video capabilities of today’s DSLRs.
The Laser is a serious solution for videographers. It has a rugged, lightweight aluminum body, and comes with a removable wind shield and a custom shockmount for hot-shoe mounting directly onto your camera. View fullsize
Want to film your friend's rock band? The inclusion of a -10dB pad allows you to reduce the level of the mic so loud sources (bands, jet planes, jet skis) don't overload your camera's audio circuitry.
The microphone also features a bass cut switch, which gives you the option of removing unwanted low frequency rumble - like traffic, air conditioning, or noise from the camera itself - and this can be used in tandem with the -10dB pad.
The Laser provides over 200 hours of use from only a single AAA battery, yet provides high sensitivity and a super-low noise floor.
It comes packaged with a protective carrying pouch and a detachable 3.5mm coiled cable to connect it to your camera. There are a plethora of camera-mounted mics available, so why did we decide to make the Laser - and why might it be your best choice?
While developing a mic for a camera, a company tends to make sacrifices. Most of the time these cost-cutting measures negatively affect the client - sound quality suffers, reliability suffers, durability suffers. Why use metal when you can use plastic, right?
We don't think like that. The Laser is crafted from aluminum - something you don't see on DSLR mics anywhere below $500 - with a hand-tuned capsule, a clever custom shockmount designed by sE specifically for the Laser, and a super-flat frequency response.
There's no hype or exaggeration here - what you hear is what you get. Honest, truthful, and real.
