Deity Microphones introduced the S-Mic 2 shotgun microphone. The new S-Mic 2 has remarkably ultra low off-axis coloration. With it, you have nothing to worry about if an audio source moves slightly in and out of axis with the S-Mic 2. Even a novice boom operator can pick up rich full sounds on a film set with this shotgun microphone.
The construction of the mic body is computer machined from solid brass inside and out. No plastic is used anywhere in the construction to hold it together or mount the PCB unlike other microphones that sell for similar prices.
The S-Mic 2 uses a high-end capsule, computer designed circuitry, and features a gold coated PCB (printed circuit board). The PCB is also sprayed and coated with a clear epoxy which allows the microphone to preform without issues even in the most humid environments. This coating gives the microphone a water resistance level that allows it to work in the rain without being damaged.
The body of the microphone has been sprayed with a black speckle paint to give it an ultra durable finish, so it looks professional in front of clients for years of ownership and makes it less reflective on set.
The S-Mic 2 features a super cardioid polar pattern, offering -18dB off axis reject.
The S-Mic 2 has an ultra low noise floor at 12dB (A-weighted), 24dB (CCIR 268-3). Combined with its anti-RF interface build, the S-Mic 2 is able to be boosted with gain with a lot less background noise than some microphones on the market.
Featuring ultra low self-noise, all-brass construction, and a supercardioid pickup pattern, @deitymicrophone is proud to introduce the S-Mic 2!
