Use the Audio-Technica BP4073 shotgun microphone to capture broadcast-quality sound with directivity rivaling significantly longer shotgun mics. Ideal for indie films, TV shoots, and documentary projects, the BP4073 boasts professional-level features such as low-noise circuitry, a direct-coupled output, and extremely high SPL handling, all of which contribute to its clean signal across a broad range of output levels.
The BP4073's high sensitivity allows it to produce a strong output without requiring extreme gain at your mic preamp. With a selectable low-cut filter and a -10 dB pad, the BP4073 is capable of delivering clear, distortion-free sound due even on intensely loud sound sources. Plus, its full-spectrum frequency response utilizes a gentle increase in high frequencies to enhance intelligibility.
The rugged aluminum alloy housing ensures rugged dependability while maintaining an ultralight weight that won't burden your boompole or camera, and the included accessories accommodate mounting the BP4073 to a mic stand, boompole, or camera-mount microphone holder.
The supercardioid polar pattern yields focused on-axis directionality with maximum rear-entry sound rejection. Its low self-noise of 13 dBA and highly sensitive condenser element communicate detailed audio unburdened by the hiss that plagues many low-cost microphones.
For maximum reduction of handling noise and wind noise in indoor or outdoor environments, consider the separately available Rycote Windshield Kit 4, a complete windjammer, windshield, and shockmount suspension system.
