What Is Shotgun Microphone?

- Aug 28, 2018-

The "Shotgun Mic" is like a telephoto lens in photography. It is designed to pick up sounds in a very specific area, often at some distance away.

Example Uses:

1) Two shotguns picking up an entire orchestra from 30 meters away, one pointed at the left half of the orchestra, and the other catching the right side.

2) Shotgun on a pole hanging over a specific person speaking on film, pointed at their mouth.

3) Another use includes gathering sound effects, pointing the shotgun at a train or football player in action.
