Nikon Me-1 unidirectional microphone offers crisp, clear sound with no unwanted operational noise.
- Designed for use with a digital SLR camera featuring a 3.5 mm (diameter) stereo mini-pin jack.
- Reduces vibration noise during autofocus.
- Equipped with a cable stop which holds the cable in place to prevent noise from being recorded with accidental contact with the cable.
- Low-cut filter reduces wind noise and other low-frequency noise not blocked by the wind screen.
A serious addition to any discerning videographer’s kit, it raises the quality of audio recording, enabling movies shot with a D-SLR to sound as good as they look.
Nikon’s commitment to versatile movie recording takes another step forward with the ME-1. Developed to capture professional-quality stereo sound across diverse situations, it further enhances the sophistication of D-Movie – Nikon’s renowned D-SLR movie functionality – and offers a smart alternative to a camera’s built in microphone.
The ME-1 is a great new addition to Nikon’s continually expanding system for high-quality movie recording. Pros and enthusiasts alike will be able to record sound at a whole new level and add to the impact of their movies.”
Designed with D-SLR users in mind, the ME-1 is equipped with a vibration reduction mechanism that suppresses unwanted operational noise which can come from autofocus. As a unidirectional microphone it provides precise targeted pick-up, allowing users to record exactly what they want to hear. Interference from external noise can be suppressed using the supplied windscreen and a low-cut filter switch offers extra control over low-frequency noise. The sensitivity of the microphone can also be adjusted through the camera menu to control surrounding noise or ambient sound.
Easily mounted on the camera’s hot shoe, the ME-1 is conveniently powered by the camera, while its intelligent ergonomic design enables comfortable handheld shooting. The short body allows easy access to the viewfinder and it boasts a handy cable-stop to keep the cable out of the way.
For use with all Nikon D-SLRs and COOLPIX cameras that have a 3.5 mm connector for external microphones, the ME-1 is supplied with a windscreen and soft case. RRP to be advised.
