Having to boom between multiple actors? Even a novice boom operator can pick up rich full sounds on a film set with this shotgun microphone.

All Metal Build

The S-Mic 2’s body is made out of 100% brass. Making the S-Mic 2 an incredibly strong a durable piece that will last you for years.

Water Resistant

The PCB is also sprayed and coated with a clear epoxy which allows the microphone to perform without issues even in the most humid environments. This coating also gives the microphone a water resistance level that allows it to work in the rain without being damaged.

Warranty Information:

It makes the microphone fast like a race car. Really it is cut that way just for looks, you have to cut the metal one way or another and we chose a pointy diagonal design. It also helps make the microphone look cool and makes the other microphones jealous.

On the bottom of the microphone near the XLR output you will find your serial number.

No. Technically the Aputure Deity Shotgun should be called the S-Mic 1 but when it came out no one knew what a S-Mic was or that the model would even be the first version. The S-Mic 2 uses the same housing as the Aputure Deity shotgun but the circuit board and the microphone capsule have both been upgraded to sound much better. Learn more about the S-Mic 2 HERE.
