Deity Microphones – Questionable Pizza Choices, Exceptional Microphones

  By Mark Langridge

 

Deity may be a new audio company, but their microphones, such as the S-Mic and the V-Mic D2 have been around for a while under their parent company, Aputure. With the success of the S-Mic shotgun microphone, the folks at Deity decided they needed to spread their wings as a separate brand so they could dedicate themselves to the further development of exceptional professional audio equipment.

Despite the fact that Deity doesn’t believe pineapple should go on Pizza, The Camera Store is proud to be carrying their line of new microphones, including the highly anticipated S-Mic 2 shotgun microphone.

Deity upgraded the S-Mic with a new version based on customer feedback, addressing issues such as the high self-noise and lack of full low-end, and they have now released the S-Mic 2, which also boasts remarkably low off-axis colouration, so even a novice boom operator can pick up high quality recordings on a film set.

The S-Mic 2 is built to handle any conditions, with a full brass body and a rugged black speckle finish. Additionally, no plastic is used anywhere in the construction, even for circuit board mountings. Plus, this microphone is water resistant and designed to sound great even in the most humid conditions.

Deity has also designed their newest shotgun with an ultra-low noise floor, rated at 12dB (A-Weighted), and combines this with an RF-blocking build that allows the microphone to be boosted with substantial gain, while maintaining far less background noise than a lot of other microphones in its class.

To ensure that your microphone is protected when not in use or during transport, all S-Mic 2 units come with a waterproof hard case, and Deity has partnered with Rycote to produce a Location Kit, that includes a Rycote InVision Softie Lyre® shock mount/grip, and a fuzzy windjammer.

You can shop the lineup of Deity microphones at The Camera Store now.
