Shotgun microphones pick up the sounds that come, more of less, from what you point them at, and this Sennheiser is sensitive enough to give you a high quality recording. It has a frequency response range of 40Hz – 20 kHz, meaning it does a fine job with low, middle, and high frequency sounds. One distinctive feature of this microphone is it’s integral shock mounting. While it has a standard hot-shoe mounting where it meets the D7000′s body, in between the microphone and the camera is an area designed to reduce the possibility of any noises caused by handling the camera (or noisy auto-focusing lens servos) being picked up on your recording. It has a wired plug that fits into the 3.5mm jack. It’s a nice design, runs for 300 hours on a AAA battery, and it’s currently available from Amazon.com for $199.95.
