Bird Watching Enthusiasts Will Love Sound Shark’s Clarity!
The Sound Shark parabolic microphone is ideal for capturing bird songs. The Sound Shark’s long range allows bird watching videographers to record their favorite birds from afar. It does so by recording audio that matches the close-up shots of the birds being filmed. The Sound Shark parabolic microphone allows bird watching filmmakers to produce videos that truly make the viewer feel like they are experiencing the birds up-close.
Bird watching experts know a telephoto lens will let you get a great close-up shot of an elusive bird, but if your audio sounds too distant your video can be ruined. Use the Sound Shark parabolic microphone to record great audio to match your great video.
Nature photographer Marco Valk captured this video of screaming bald eagles with a Lumix GH5, Saramonic Smartrig+ and a Soundshark parabolic microphone. Valk estimated the distance at 200+ meters but the audio delay indicates the distance was actually much greater. The effective focal length was 1960mm. In his words “Impressive sound! (straight from the camera)”.
The first thing Mr. Valk mentioned, after receiving his Sound Shark (Premium Kit) in the Netherlands, was how much it had reduced his wind noise. Check out Marco’s Facebook page, his Youtube channel, and his gallery.
Our good friend, and ambassador, Dan Weecks, created this side by side comparison of a Sound Shark and a Rode NTG2 shotgun microphone, recording birds on a lightpole from approximately 60 feet away. There are more side-by-side comparisons on our video gallery page.
Nature photographer and blogger, Christian Sasse, explains why he uses the Sound Shark when streaming. Sample videos are coming soon!
