The MCE 85 can be mounted to film cameras, DSLR cameras or digital camcorders for high-quality recordings in outdoor applications or in theatres and studios with fishpole boom or as handhelds. Due to the polar pattern signals from the side or back are eliminated. A switchable bass roll-off filter eliminates unwanted low frequencies at a cut-off frequency of 120 Hz. An integrated footfall sound insulation avoids the transmission of noise below 40 Hz. To avoid wind noise when used outdoors, a windshield must be used.
The MCE 85 PV/BA can be powered by any phantom power source supplying 11 to 52 V. If no phantom power is available, we recommend using the MCE 85 BA version, which can also be powered by an 1.5 V battery.
The MCE 85 BA is fitted with a switch to activate the battery-powered operation and a battery status LED. The typical life of a battery is around 160 hours.
