The MCE 86 II shotgun microphones can be used for video recordings, lecterns or theatre applications. The microphones are extremely light and rugged and therefore ideal for mounting onto cameras or camcorders. They can be used for outdoor applications and in studios with fish pole booms or as handhelds.

The electrostatic transducer element and the hypercardioid/lobe polar pattern result in an excellent polar pattern with high sensitivity. Due to its construction and integrated active filter the microphone is insensitive towards wind and vibrations caused by zoom motors. Each sound source is reproduced absolutely clearly.

The MCE 86 II can be powered from balanced phantom source. If phantom power is not available the MCE 86 S II version should be used. This microphone can also be battery powered with an integrated 1.5V battery. The MCE 86 S II can be connected to unbalanced XLR or mini jack inputs

Each MCE 86 II version has an electronic balanced output allowing the operation with long cables. Even if connected to consumer devices with unbalanced inputs, the result is free from interferences.

There are two different elastic suspensions available suppressing footfall sound or vibrations of zoom motors. The EA 86 elastic suspension can be mounted directly onto the camera. At its bottom the EA 86 has a 3/8" internal thread for the mounting on stands or fish pole booms. The BS 86 flash-holder adapter allows optimal positioning on every camera. The EA 19/25 is supplied with the MKV 11 microphone clamp and enables the mounting on standard stands or fish pole booms with 3/8" thread.
