Deity S-Mic 2S Short Shotgun Microphone

In October 2019, DEITY Microphones will begin shipping a short shotgun microphone they call the S-Mic 2S. While this sounds similar to the original DEITY S-Mic 2, this microphone is much smaller and lighter. It doesn’t reject ambient sound quite as well as the original S-Mic 2 but it also doesn’t run as high a risk of phase and comb-filtering issues when recording indoors in reverberant rooms. Let’s take a closer look and a listen!

If you’d like to learn how to make great dialogue audio for your film and video projects, please have a look at my courses including processing dialogue audio in Adobe Audition and DaVinci Resolve/Fairlight, recording sound, how to use the Zoom F4, F8, and F8n, and how to get the most from the Sound Devices MixPre II series of recorders.
