MXL FR-500WK Professional Portable Wireless Audio System, FR-304 Shotgun Microphone, MXL FR-310 video mic and the Mobile Videographer’s Kit
Adam from MXL gives us some info on a few microphones from MXL, the FR-500WK Professional Portable Wireless Audio System, FR-304 Shotgun Microphone, MXL FR-310 video mic and the soon to be released Mobile Videographer’s Kit.
The FR-500WK Professional Portable Wireless Audio System is designed for recording audio onscreen for talent via an easily concealed lavalier microphone. The lavalier mic is used with the transmitter while the receiver can be mounted directly onto the hot shoe mount of a DSLR camera. The kit is comprised of the FR-500WT Transmitter and the FR-500WR Receiver. The FR-500WT Transmitter has a built-in microphone, 1/8” (3.5 mm) mic jack, and mono line in and a discreet omni lavalier microphone is included. Alternatively, the microphone input can be used with a 1/8” (3.5 mm) to XLR cable for a handheld dynamic microphone. The FR-500WR Receiver has a built-in speaker, 1/8” (3.5 mm) headphone jack, and line out. A hot shoe adapter and a 1/8” to 1/8” cable are included to mount the receiver on top of a DSLR camera. A 1/8” (3.5 mm)
to XLR male cable and ¼” adapter are included to connect the receiver to mixers and other pro audio gear. Additionally, the receiver can be used with headphones and a recording device.
The MXL FR-304 Shotgun Microphone is a great choice for the consumer, semi-pro or professional videographer on the go. The FR-304 includes a FET preamp and can be used in a variety of situations either under its own power or via a camera. The directional pickup minimizes off-axis noise and achieves maximum pickup distance. The microphone’s condenser element is powered by a 1.5V AA battery for over 160 hours or by an external 48V phantom power source.
The MXL FR-310 video mic mounts onto the hot shoe of your camcorder or DSLR camera. The FR-310 rejects sound from the sides and back, with a pickup pattern that targets sound in front of the camera. Three gain settings pull in the right amount of sound in close-up or long shot situations, while a bass roll-off switch leaves low-frequency noise on the cutting-room floor. The integrated windscreen helps block wind noise, which aids in keeping your sound in the picture. This mic boasts up to 500 hours per AAA battery.
Last we see the new Mobile Videographer’s Kit that has yet to be released. The kit consists of a FR-310 Shotgun Microphone, bracket with hand grip and hot shoe mount, swivel ball head, cell phone holder, and 1/8″ cable. The kit turns any iphone or Android into a video camera with high quality audio. Look out for it later this year for under $200.Android, audio, FR-500WK Professional Portable Wireless Audio System, iPhone, lavalier microphone, microphone, mobile videographer's kit, MXL, MXL FR-304 Shotgun Microphone, MXL FR-310 video mic, NAB 2013, shotgun mic, shotgun microphone for DSLR
