Zoom SSH-6 - Stereo Shotgun Microphone Capsule

The Zoom SSH-6 Stereo Shotgun Microphone Capsule is designed to work with the company's H5 and H6 audio recorders as well as the hybrid Q8 audio and video recorder and their U-44. The capsule includes a super-directional microphone for picking up sound on center that can be combined with a bidirectional side microphone for picking up sound from the left or right to record a fully mono-compatible stereo image for film, video, and television projects. For example, you can record dialogue with the center microphone and then mix the desired amount of environmental sound captured by the side microphone with the Zoom recorder. A hairy windscreen is included for helping reduce wind noise.

The best of both worlds

Shotgun mics provide a pinpoint center image, and mid-side recording is a great way to capture realistic stereo images which are fully mono-compatible. In situations where the ambient sound is too intrusive, the level of the SSH-6 'side' mic can be reduced even in postproduction to make narration or dialogue captured by its 'mid' mic easier to hear.

Use the right microphone for the job

Professional photographers and videographers choose the right lens to capture the optimum visual image. Why should audio be any different? Zoom's unique system of interchangeable input capsules allow you to always use the right microphone for the audio recording you're creating. The capsules snap on in seconds, allowing them to be swapped out as easily as the lens of a camera.

Zoom provides plenty of variety, too: Two different X/Y stereo mics for live music and concert recording, two different mid-side mics (one standard and one shotgun) for film and videography, two types of shotgun mics (one mono and one stereo), even an expander capsule that allows you to connect two additional external microphones or line-level sources.

SGH-6 Shotgun Mic Capsule

The monophonic SGH-6 Shotgun mic capsule allows dialogue and narration to be recorded at a distance, without an obtrusive mic in the scene, making it perfect for film and video shoots, live theater, and ENG (electronic newsgathering) applications.
