A shorter version of the Schoeps Shotgun microphone now available at Tidepool made possible by miniaturized electronics. With no compromise in sound quality compared to the famous CMIT 5U, the Mini has unique features like a fixed 70Hz / 24dB Low-Cut filter and only 2.3mA current consumption at 48V.

The MiniCMIT benefits from state-of-the-art RF rejection technology and performs even in harsh RF environments. Weighs only 78g with a super-short length of 151mm. 

The MiniCMIT is recommended for use with digital transmitters such as the Audio Ltd. A10-TX for two reasons:

  • The MiniCMIT can use P12, which is more power-efficient.
  • The MiniCMIT has the latest version of the Schoeps RFI Shield, which has been specifically developed and tested for this type of application.
