OUR PART # QMSG-PRO
Que Audio's Q Mini Shotgun PRO's condenser capsule and wider brass barrel, combined with the electronics circuit, allow for 3 stages of selectable gain at 0 dB, +10 dB, and +20 dB. On a 5d MKII, you'd select the +20 setting on the Q Mini Shotgun Pro, and then on the 5d MKII on the sound recording/manual page, throttle back the input level all the way down, then set at 1 click above off. This maximizes the signal-to-noise of the 5d MKII and delivers professional results. On a 7D DSLR, the +10 setting works best for minimal distortion. On a Nikon D800, select +20 on the MSG-PRO and a setting of 5 on the D800 manul input level control as a starting point. On a Panasonic GH2, selecting the 0 dB setting on the Q Mini Shotgun PRO, and either of the two lowest (least gain) settings on the camera, depending on the source material, will give you the best results.
NOTE: The mount shown above does NOT come with purchase.
