Senal Shotgun Mic – OMG!
I’ve been on the search for the perfect mic to connect to the D4s for recording wildlife sounds with the video. And I’ve found it, the killer mic, the MS-77 Mini Shotgun Microphone! As you can see above how small it is. It’s self contained using #377 batteries and not needing phantom power. It comes with the shock hotshoe mount and two connecting cables. The most important thing is its sound quality. For that, I offer up the following video.
Shot at the Black Skimmer colony in FL, there were photographers on either side of me talking and shooting while I was recording. I was lying on the ground shooting with the D4s / 800mm on the Panning Plate. If you’re looking for a great mic for recording wildlife sounds (or vocals for that matter), I HIGHLY recommend the Senal!
