Just in case you were wondering why the new Azden SGM-250CX on-camera short shogun microphone sounds so good, it just happens to be the exact microphone as their high end SGM-250. So now you can get the great sound of the SGM-250 modified for on-cam use. I once put the Azden SGM-250CX up against a Rode NTG-1 to a blind test, and let the audience choose which they liked best. Most people chose the SGM-250CX, so that's a testament to their quality of sound. If you're looking for a good short shotgun mic for Cinema cameras like the Canon C100, Ursa Mini, Sony FS7, etc check out the new Azden SGM-250XC (found here).
