Synco MIC-D30 Overview
The Synco Mic-D30 is a supercardioid shotgun microphone designed to be mounted on your camera. It is suitable for ENG, EFP, and run-and-gun filmmaking. The microphone can interface with smartphones and cameras by means of its USB Type-C port and various connector cables. You’ll find cables on hand for 3.5mm TRS and 3.5mm TRRS devices as well as a USB-C to USB charging cable for the mic’s built-in battery.
In addition to the microphone’s highly directional polar pattern, the Mic-D30 sports other features eminently useful in the realm of location recording. You’ll find switchable low-cut filters for mitigating bassy rumble as well as the ability to record a lower-level safety channel in case you’re capturing the levels to hot on the primary signal. A 20 dB pad accommodates particularly loud sources, giving you an SPL of 124 dB.
Monitor audio straight from the mic through the 3.5mm output. Use the analog variable gain control to adjust the input volume on the fly. The Mic-D30 comes with a storage case, three USB-C cables (charging, TRS, and TRRS), a shockmount, and a furry windscreen.
