Sanken Microphones CMS-50 Sanken Microphones has introduced the CMS-50 stereo condenser microphone, a compact shotgun mic designed for boom pole or camera-mounted applications. The mic is especially suited to ambient film and sports recording and shoots where tight patterns and premium sound are sought.

The CMS-50 features M-S (Mid-Side) configuration, which makes it convenient to adjust the stereo width at the mixer or in postproduction. For smooth and clear stereo imaging, the mic includes two outputs, a cardioid and fig-8, which can be fed into the mixer for width adjustments. If both outputs are recorded, stereo width can be managed in post. The cardioid output alone can be used for mono recording.

At 5.4-inch length and weighing 4.6oz, the CMS-50 is unobtrusive rugged and dependable in a wide range of applications where sound clarity and noise rejection are critical requirements. It can be camera-mounted without interfering with even a short lens, yet still provide the quality of audio demanded by today’s professionals.

The lightweight, rugged design and unique components assure optimum resistance to humidity and adverse temperature changes. An HPF switch adjusts low frequency characteristics.
