A Versatile Microphone for Cameras and Video

With the SMX-30 you’ve always got the right microphone for the job. That’s because it is both a stereo microphone and a mono-shotgun microphone, allowing you to switch between the two on the fly.

So for the price of a single microphone you’re actually getting two. Talk about bang for your buck!

Plus with other great features like gain control, auto-on, a low cut filter, and of course awesome sound quality, the SMX-30 is sure to be a microphone you’ll always want to keep in your gear bag.

It's a Stereo Microphone

Use the stereo mode to capture rich, immersive audio that enhances the scene you're shooting. Great for nature scenes, musical performances, or any kind of action video.

And it's a Mono Shotgun Microphone

Mono mode uses a supercardioid shotgun microphone to really focus in on your sound source. Perfect for picking up dialogue in vlog style videos, or for "run and gun" interview situations.

Vibration Isolating Shock Mount

Made from a virtually unbreakable composite material, the shock mount effectively isolates the microphone from the vibrations created by handling a camera. Designed to mount on top of a camera’s cold shoe, a threaded ¼”-20 tap is also available for boompole and accessory bar mounting.

Battery Power

The SMX-30 is powered by two AA batteries that afford it 24 hours of continuous use. The battery LED lights up to warn you when you have about 30 minutes of battery life left. Plus, the auto power feature economizes battery usage by turning the microphone on and off with your camera.
