Shure’s LensHopper Is a New Mic Option for DSLR Shoots

Shure is showing two new camera-mount condensor microphones at its NAB booth (C2627). Under the LensHopper moniker, the VP83 and VP83F are good-looking ultra-compact mics built on Rycote Lyre shock mounts.

The major difference between the two models is that the bulkier VP83F adds on-board digital flash recording (writing uncompressed 24-bit/48 kHz WAV files to MicroSDHC), while the VP83 has to send audio into the camera or to some kind of second-system recording option. The 83F version also has a tiny LCD screen and five-position joystick control.

Shure told us prices haven't been set — so let them know what you think these mics are worth — but expects to ship the LensHopper this summer.
