We came across this Shure microphone and thought we should share such a great piece of equipment. The Shure VP83F LensHopper Condensor Microphone comes with a built in clean pre and SD card slot that makes for clean audio and convenience. The results as stated by Unbox Therapy are highly impressive.
The Shure VP83F LensHopper is a compact, rugged shotgun microphone with detailed, high-definition audio and integrated digital flash recording/playback capabilities for use with DSLR cameras and camcorders. Integrated flash recording/playback (MicroSDHC) enables WAV file capture at 24-bit/48kHz sampling rate, while the intuitive menu and one-button recording make it fast and easy to use in almost any environment. Developed with a highly directional supercardioid/lobar polar pattern, the VP83F provides superior off-axis rejection and delivers natural audio reproduction. An integrated, custom-designed Lyre shock mount (exclusively developed with Rycote) provides robust isolation from vibration and mechanical noise.
