Designed by Ambient Recording, the QP 4140-SCM Feature-Film Boom Pole extends up to 17' long, and as such, is suitable for recording audio in the context of film, particularly in multi-cam shots, wide-camera angles, complicated lighting scenarios, and any scene involving complicated interactions between actors and cameras. The boom itself is fashioned out of multi-layer pull-wind carbon tubing with a wall thickness of 1.55 mm, giving you a stiff and well-balanced pole. This allows you to pivot, swing, and aim a microphone in a controlled manner.
The QP480 includes an internal 3-pin mono XLR straight ultra-thin cable; this cable sports both effective shielding and a polyurethane insulation, thus ensuring a durable, flexible operation—even in temperatures as low as -40°C (-40°F). At the tip of the boom is a stainless steel 3/8" thread for attachment to shockmounts. Screw locks provide greater security.
