With its supercardioid polar plot, the DPA 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun Microphone offers a highly-directional pick-up pattern as well as low self noise and high sensitivity. The mic is capable of handling high SPLs, which allows it to deliver undistorted natural sound, even when users speak loudly or yell. With a linear response, low distortion and an extremely large dynamic range, it sounds great no matter how challenging the environment. In addition, dialog and background noise off to the side (off-axis) of the microphone preserves the audio quality; it just drops in level.

The 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun Mic is outfitted specifically so that it can be used in difficult filming locations like a car. Its foam windscreen protects it from wind noise, even when windows are down (due to tight spaces and camera placement). The built-in shock mount is also particularly useful when filming in a moving car. It has a small, slim, unobtrusive footprint and a black matte, non-reflective surface, which diminishes reflections from lights, making it even easier on the film crew.
