Whether you shoot with a mobile device or a camera, the BOYA BY-MM1 PRO ultracompact camera-mount shotgun microphone offers the flexibility of selectable sound pickup orientation as well as improved audio quality over the mic built into your device. The BY-MM1 PRO utilizes two supercardioid capsules (one at each end) and a 3-position switch to enable selectable directionality from the front, the rear, or both ends.
Vloggers, mobile journalists, and run-and-gun videographers of all experience levels will benefit from the mic's simple operation; it requires no batteries because it runs on plug-in power from your device. The BY-MM1 PRO features an attached coiled cable with a right-angle 3.5mm TRRS mini plug for connecting the mic to your smartphone, tablet, DSLR, camcorder, or portable audio recorder, and it features a dedicated 3.5mm headphone port, enabling easy monitoring of the audio signal while the main output remains connected to your recording device.
The Rycote detachable shock mount attaches directly to your camera's shoe mount and reduces rumble and camera-handling noise. To reduce noise from wind and fans, foam windscreens (for indoor use) and furry windshields (for outdoor use) are supplied with the BY-MM1 PRO.
Ultracompact and Ultralightweight
Durable and small, the aluminum-bodied BY-MM1 PRO measures only 3.3" long and weighs only 2.4 ounces. This makes it an unobtrusive companion piece for your shooting rig.
Dual Condenser Capsules
Equipped with two supercardioid condenser capsules (one at each end of the mic) and a 3-position switch, the BY-MM1 PRO lets you select from three directional pickup modes to have the mic focus on sound in front of it, behind it, or both.
Main and Headphone Outputs
The BY-MM1 PRO boasts two 3.5mm outputs—a TRRS main output on an attached coiled cable for connection to your recording device and a TRS headphone output for convenient monitoring of the input signal or playback from compatible apps.
No Batteries Required
Since the mic runs on plug-in power from your recording device, it needs no batteries or phantom power.
The removable Rycote Lyre shock mount attaches directly to the shoe mount of a camera and effectively inhibits vibrations from transferring to the microphone. The included furry windshields are ideal for minimizing unwanted wind noise in outdoor shoots, while the foam windscreens are preferable when working indoors.
