The Sennheiser MKE 600 is a shotgun microphone designed with camcorders and DSLR cameras in mind. Also, the MKE 600 works very well for many common production sound scenarios. The MKE 600’s high level of directivity ensures that it picks up sound from the camera direction while reliably attenuating unwanted sound coming from the sides and rear. Additionally, wind noise is reduced by the included foam windshield, while a switchable low-cut filter additionally minimizes wind and handling noise. Other windshields are also available, including: Sennheiser’s MZH 600, Rycote’s Super-Softie & Classic-Softie, and Windtech’s BG-1 & BG-150.

Because some cameras and camcorders do not provide phantom power, the Sennheiser MKE 600 includes the capability of being battery powered (by two AA batteries), as well as accepting phantom power. Furthermore, a switch for turning on/off the battery prevents the battery from draining unnecessarily. At low battery capacity, the MKE 600 displays a “Low Batt” message.
