Featuring an 11” barrel and advanced off-axis sound rejection, Audio-Technica’s AT897 condenser shotgun microphone is an excellent choice for professional recording engineers working within the film and television industries. Due to its small size, the AT897 can be mounted on digital video cameras for added portability during use. Thanks to a 20 Hz - 20 kHz frequency response range and included low-cut frequency switch, your audio productions will contain all of the clarity and nuance you expect from an Audio-Technica microphone!

Audio-Technica’s AT897 is designed for field audio acquisition in film/TV/video production, professional recording, wildlife recording and broadcast applications. It mounts conveniently on a DV camcorder without adding noticeable heft, and remains out of the frame even with compact digital cameras. This high-performance short shotgun offers outstanding long-distance audio pickup due to narrow acceptance angle of line + gradient design. It also features smooth, natural-sounding on-axis audio quality and excellent off-axis rejection of sound arriving from the sides and rear of mic.
