The S-Mic 2 is a professional short shotgun that was designed for the video productions of today. We spent the last year talking with working professionals and gathering their input when we made the S-Mic 2S. The boom operators of today demand a shorter, lighter microphone with a slightly wider pickup pattern for multi-talent scenes. This makes the S-Mic 2S perfect for things like reality TV crews, indoor sit down interviews, and indie filmmaking.
The S-Mic 2S is as light as other industry standard mics used on film sets. Coming in at a mere 3 ounces, you might forget you have a microphone on the end of your boom pole.
