The Que Audio Q Sniper Kit is built around Q’s Mini Shotgun Microphone, the Q Sniper Kit includes all the accessories needed for lightweight on-camera mini shotgun style audio capture for DSLR cameras and video camcorders as well as for location sound booming, ENG, and audio for video production applications
The Que Audio Q Sniper Kit has all the pieces from the Q DSLR-Video kit and a Q Mini Boom Pole and Boom Pole Base unit which attaches directly to the Mini Boom Pole or Mini Shockmount via standard tripod 1/4in 20 threading for boom counterbalancing, mic stand, or desktop stand uses. Also added is the QAD2 passive 3.5cm to XLR adaptor plug, and substituted a longer 2 metre compact threaded cable.
The Q Mini Boom Pole is made out of telescoping stainless steel outfitted with a ribbed rubber comfort grip allowing for extremely lightweight and travel friendly location booming. Fully collapsed it measures just less than 34 cm and fully extended length is just under 1.5 meters without any attachments. (Boom Pole Base, Mini Shockmount, Shock Absorber, and Mini Shotgun Mic add up to 19cm.)
Use the Q Sniper Kit anywhere a high quality, compact, and lightweight mini shotgun microphone is needed. (On/off camera run-and-gun, boom pole / location sound, desktop stand, ENG/Journalism, studio production.)
The Q Compact Connection System (QCCS)
Although the microphone is extremely small and unobtrusive, the rejection properties are comparable to standard wide body shotgun microphones. The microphone is self-powered using two (2) AG4 1.5V batteries (included) but can also be phantom powered (balanced/low-impedance) using the optional QAD3 XLR adaptor (batteries remain in microphone for parallel operation).
