Last year, Aputure made their first serious shotgun microphone for independent filmmakers called the Deity. It was an impressive first design with a decent sound and the ability to withstand water exposure. But now they've decided to get more serious by spinning off their microphone business so that the Deity team can focus 100% on sound.
In our interview, Andrew covers the S-Mic, D3, and D3-Pro shotgun microphones, Deity's first three models.
