For years, Sennheiser's MKH line of microphones has been the standard for the most precise and accurate recording quality in film, theatre or studio applications. Sennheiser microphones are known for their resistance to humid conditions and extraneous RF. The Sennheiser MKH8060 is a versatile short shotgun microphone. Its compact dimensions and light weight make it ideal for mounting onto a camera or attaching to the end of your boom pole. Having a natural sounding microphone without colouring the sound in off axis situations is always a concern and the MKH8060 excels here. Sennheiser reports that the MKH8060 is designed in such a way that if the microphone is off axis, the sound only becomes quieter and the colour of the audio does not change. As is typical of Sennheiser mics in general, the MKH8060 has extremely high tolerance for RF interference and is extremely weather-proof due to high-frequency circuitry.
The Sennheiser MKH8060 comes with foam windshield and clip, or add a Rycote INV-7 HG MKIII shock mount and softie for an extra $10
