We started with all the pieces from our Q DSLR-Video kit, and then added the Q Mini Boom Pole and Boom Pole Base unit which attaches directly to the Mini Boom Pole or Mini Shockmount via standard tripod 1/4" 20 threading for boom counterbalancing, mic stand, or desktop stand uses. We also added the QAD2 passive 3.5cm to XLR adapter plug, and substituted a longer 2 meter compact threaded cable. READ MORE on Q Compact Connection System (QCCS)
The Q Mini Boom Pole is made out of telescoping stainless steel outfitted with a ribbed rubber comfort grip allowing for extremely lightweight and travel friendly location booming. Fully collapsed it measures just less than 13.5" (>34 cm) and fully extended length is just under 57.5" (4′ 9.5" or >1.5 meters) without any attachments. (Boom Pole Base, Mini Shockmount, Shock Absorber, and Mini Shotgun Mic add up to 7.5" or 19cm.) READ MORE on Q Mini Boom Pole
Use the Q Sniper Kit anywhere a high quality, compact, and lightweight mini shotgun microphone is needed. (On/off camera run-and-gun, boom pole / location sound, desktop stand, ENG/Journalism, studio production.)
The Q Compact Connection System (QCCS)
Although the microphone is extremely small and unobtrusive, the rejection properties are comparable to standard wide body shotgun microphones. The microphone is self-powered using two (2) AG4 1.5V batteries (included) but can also be phantom powered (balanced/low-impedance) using the optional QAD3 XLR adapter (batteries remain in mic for parallel operation).
