The Saramonic SR-NV5 is a 6.5” professional XLR shotgun microphone that delivers clear, broadcast-quality sound to video cameras, audio recorders, and DSLR and mirrorless cameras that have XLR adapters. Its short-length design is ideal for mounting to cameras, especially in tight configurations, but it’s also very effective for use on boom poles and stands. A Saramonic NV5-WS furry windscreen is included so you won’t have issues with wind noise when shooting outdoors. A short XLR cable and a foam windscreen are also in the box, so you’ll have everything you need to capture great sound. The SR-NV5 is incredibly easy to use and has no buttons or controls that you need to operate. It requires phantom power to operate, which can be supplied by certain cameras or by field mixers, like the Saramonic SR-PAX2. The NV5 is fully compatible with the Saramonic TX-XLR9, SR-XLR15 and SR-XLR4C wireless plug-on transmitters, which also supply phantom power. These transmitters are remarkably inexpensive solutions for wireless shotgun use. The freedom and creative possibilities of using a compact, wireless shotgun are endless. For example, you can set up an elaborate wide shot where the NV5 is hidden from view and used to capture dialog. This is an extremely lightweight professional microphone that delivers pristine sound quality — yet it’s remarkably affordable. It features an attractive red metal construction that’s durable and will survive the bumpy world of video production, whether it’s mounted to a professional broadcast camera or an entry-level DSLR with XLR adapter.
