Part of the charm of ZOOM H5 and H6 handy recorders is that there is a variety of interchangeable capsules available.
Both H5 and H6 come standard with an X/Y capsule, or if you’d like more inputs – check out the EXH-6 module.
However, for those who need more directionality, the SGH-6 shotgun capsule is perfect.
Thanks to the three internal mics with digital signal processing ability, SGH-6 achieves a frequency-independent super-cardioid polar pattern.
Compared to ordinary shotgun microphones using an acoustic tube method, the SGH-6 maintains a highly directional pickup at about half the length.
