At just 80mm long, 22mm wide and weighing 30g, the Fovitec video mic is a great addition for your iPhone, Android, DSLR, PC or Laptop. Its matte finish, durable aluminium body and compact design make it easy to transport anywhere.
You can connect your Fovitec mic up to your desktop computer or laptop to use for a variation of different things, such as: dictation, recording your University lecture, a PC gaming mic, PS4 mic or Xbox mic for when you’re live streaming on Twitch, YouTube or other platforms. This mic can also kick start your Podcast venture for Spotify, iTunes and Google Podcasts.
Most built-in camera microphones will pick up sound from all directions this is called omnidirectional. The Fovitec Shotgun microphone utilizes a cardioid polar pattern, this allows you to focus on sound in front of you whilst dampening sound from the rear and sides. This gives you more creative control over your audio & video recordings. Its built-in, active and directional condenser element delivers more detail than the built-in microphones in smartphones, cameras and portable audio recorders.
There is no need for batteries with the Fovitec video mic, just connect the cable to the microphone and then to your camera or audio recorder, simple! This Plug & play system means the video microphone draws its power from the device it is plugged into, so there is no need for swapping or charging batteries. The power drawn is minimal so you don’t have to worry about draining the battery on your iPhone, Android, camera or Laptop PC .
We have included two detachable 3.5mm cables (TRRS & TRS) so you can quickly connect to your camera, Phone or audio recording device. These cables have been designed to allow the same level of input to be transmitted through both sides, this stops any discrepancies in audio quality.
We have simplified the setup of the video mic attachment by including a shock mount that simply clips on. This mount helps to inhibit the transfer of vibrations from the camera, phone or stand. The shock mount also features a camera shoe mount and a 3/8" thread, allowing you to easily attach it to your camera or a boom arm such as the Fovitec 12cm Boom Arm (available separately).
The Fovitec video mic includes a furry windshield to minimize unwanted wind noise from breezes, fans, heaters, and air conditioners allowing you to get great audio quality without the need for a lot of post-production.
*For iPhone 7 - iPhone 11, please purchase an ORIGINAL Lightning -3.5mm TRRS adapter cable from Apple‘s official website. Using a third-party lightning cable may be incompatible or affect the sound quality. Android USB C devices that do not have a 3.5mm headphone will also require an adapter. (Not included) For laptops, we also recommend purchasing a splitter for audio as some models might not offer compatibility. (Not included)Specifications
