The pickup pattern of the built-in microphone on camcorders and DSLR cameras is omnidirectional, meaning that it picks up all sounds in every direction equally, no matter which direction you point the camera. The SGM-990 is a 6 inches long directional, or zoom microphone with 2 switchable sound pickup patterns, 'Long' and 'Short.' Use 'Long' to focus on your sound source or pick up sound from a distance. Use 'Short' for when your sound source is close or covers a broader field. Both settings will provide rejection of unwanted sound from the sides and the back. The SGM-990 has a working range of 20-40 feet, uses 1 AAA battery, and comes with a windscreen and shoe mount microphone clip.
