Sennheiser MKH 416 Short Shotgun Condenser Microphone

The industry-standard Sennheiser shotgun mic on film and TV sets, the 416 is a must for capturing sound on location! It's great for recording voiceover, too.

Featuring high directivity, low self noise, high consonant articulation and feedback rejection, the MKH 416 can handle difficult exterior filming and reporting conditions without any difficulty.
