Title: Microphones for the DSLR
Author: Alexander Bota-Weber
Translated from the original German article
The microphones produce a nicely balanced acoustic sound. Their almost linear frequency response produces a 4 kHz presence boost which brings speech unobtrusively to the fore. A more sensitive frequency above the 10 kHz range ensures greater crispness and air in the trebles. The test showed that the MCE 85 BA greatly enhances conventional DSLRs because the mic is not just set to a neutral acoustic setting, but can be flexibly adjusted thanks to the battery power supply. Whether mounted on a camera or camcorder, or used on a microphone boom or as a hand-held mic, for those who place a high value on a low-noise original sound, both of these 85 Series mics have reached our shortlist.
