The Audio-Technica AT897 Short (11 inch) Shotgun Mic is a lightweight, easy-to-use microphone, promising great vocal recording for broadcasting applications. Crafted for capturing distant sounds, this microphone is suitable for use in documentaries, TV productions, nature recording, etc. It has a key super-cardioid capsule that promises focused vocal pickup with exceptional audio clarity. It further features an interference tube that separates the disturbing elements from the primary sound source for reproducing highly intelligible audio. Plus, it has an integrated low-cut filter that reduces background noise while recording, such as ambient tones and hisses. Its slick build lets you use it for camera-mounted operation with ease. This professional microphone operates on phantom power or AA-type battery.

    Does this microphone come with a windscreen? Do I have to buy it separately?

    The Audio-Technica AT897 does come with a windscreen. However, for a maximum reduction in winds, hums, and ambient noises during recording, you can consider buying a premium Rycote windshield kit designed exclusively for this microphone. This will allow you to capture crisp and professional-quality sound with minimum background noise.

    How to use the switch on the Audio-Technica AT897 to select phantom power mode?

    You don’t need to do any of that since the switch is not there for choosing power modes. It is there for the low-cut filter. If the battery is inside the mic, then there is no need to use phantom power. If there isn’t, then you can use an XLR cable (not included) to utilise the mic with phantom power.

    Can you connect the Audio-Technica AT897 microphone with a smartphone and shoot a movie?

    This microphone cannot be directly connected to a smartphone. You’ll need an XLR cable to connect it to a device that features an XLR input.
