Shotgun Microphone


A Shotgun Microphone is a long-range directional microphone which can pick up sounds at long distances. Low-volume whispers can be heard at a distance of fifty meters if the device is pointed directly at the subject, with standard conversations being picked up at a hundred meters and louder sounds from a considerable distance. Fitting a shotgun microphone to a Video Camera or Tri-Vid Camera coupled with a Telescopic Scope can turn it into an effective surveillance device.[1]
