Sennheiser Pro Audio launches MKE 200 camera microphone

Sennheiser Pro Audio has launched the MKE 200 microphone for enhanced audio from  DSLRs and mirrorless cameras as well as mobile devices.

The MKE 200 features a directional design which captures the sound of the subject while rejecting unwanted background noise. To minimise handling noise, the microphone is fitted with an internal shock-mount which acoustically decouples the capsule from the housing. To protect from wind noise, Sennheiser engineers designed the MKE 200 with an integrated layer of protective mesh inside the housing. This is further enhanced by using the included furry windshield when filming outdoors.

Battery-free operation and a lightweight design allow for optimal gimbal performance.

The MKE 200 comes complete with a furry windshield, two locking connection cables for DSLRs or mirrorless cameras (3.5mm TRS cable) and mobile devices (3.5 mm TRRS cable) plus a draw-string pouch for storage.

“Improved audio significantly increases the overall quality of your content,” says Tobias von Allwörden, Head of Portfolio Management, Audio for Video at Sennheiser. “The MKE 200 makes this possible with its unique design which minimises handling and wind noise. Simply attach it to the shoe mount, select the appropriate cable for your device and you’re good to go!”

The MKE 200 retails for £99. For more click here.
