Production mixer Glenn Berkovitz, C.A.S., recently employed the new Sanken CS-1 Short Shotgun microphone for the ABC series Karen Sisco. "We used the CS-1 for dialog inside a van," explained Berkovitz. "We were using my favorite, the Sanken CS-3e shotgun, for exteriors but found ourselves in really cramped quarters and I swapped it for the CS-1. This new Sanken short shotgun worked perfectly, and the dialog from the two mics matched beautifully."

"Both the CS-1 and the CS-3e have a nice targeted range without being too pin-pointy like a hypercardioid shotgun where the mic really has to be on a very tight target," added Berkovitz. "The Sanken shotguns are ideal for episodic TV, film and ENG production sound."
