Overview MKE 600
The MKE 600 is the ideal video camera/camcorder microphone able to handle even demanding filmic challenges. Due to its high directivity, the MKE 600 picks up sounds coming from the direction in which the camera is pointing and effectively attenuates noise coming from the sides and rear. The switchable "Low Cut" filter additionally minimizes wind noise. Because some video cameras/camcorders do not provide phantom power, the MKE 600 can also be battery powered. A battery on/off switch prevents the battery from discharging prematurely; "Low Batt" is displayed.

Perfect sound for perfect pictures.
The MKE 600's main strength is its rich sound with its excellent reproduction of low frequencies. This allows you to record speech easily and ensures high intelligibility. Its high directivity means that even audio that was recorded from a distance sounds as if the speaker had been much closer to the microphone. Furthermore, lateral interference noise is reliably suppressed. The low-cut filter reduces handling noise and wind noise. With the MKE 600, you can enjoy perfect sound without the noise.
No phantom power required.
Since not all video cameras are equipped to supply phantom power for a microphone, the MKE 600 can also be operated using standard AA batteries. Battery power can be switched on easily and then switched off again when the camera is no longer in use – this keeps the battery from discharging too rapidly. An LED on the
battery switch lets you know when the batteries are running low while there is still a reserve of approximately eight hours – enough time to finish your shoot successfully.
More flexibility for demanding shoots.
The success of your work depends on achieving the perfect interplay of image and
sound – and under the most difficult conditions. No matter if you're shooting outdoors in the city or indoors with poor acoustics: When you need to switch locations and change camera settings quickly, this shotgun microphone is your ideal companion for demanding shoots.
