Apex177  Stereo Camera-mount Microphone

The Apex177 is a stereo camera mount microphone designed for use with any of today's DSLR or mobile video camera with a standard 1/8th-inch stereo microphone input. The Apex177 uses an internal CR2 3V battery to power the condenser microphone capsules. This ensures the microphone does not draw on the camera's battery, or decrease your record time in any way.

User Tips:

  • Always use the Apex177 with the supplied foam windscreen for best results.
  • Securely mount the Apex177 to your camera 'hot-foot' flash seat for best results. Point the microphone as directly as possible at your source. The camera mount is a non-conductive plastic designed specifically to ensure the Apex177 will not accidentally short the camera hot-foot flash mount.
  • Use narrow pickup pattern when recording close sources, or recording actions in a confined, focused space. Wide pattern works best for large scale, wide field sources like a stage play, live music or unfocused, outdoor events where additional ambient sounds and wide stereo separation may be preferred.
