This is Audio Technica’s affordable film/TV microphone. At a mere 11″, this shotgun microphone provides smooth, natural-sounding on-axis audio quality. The AT897 offers long-distance audio pickup due to the narrow acceptance angle of the line/gradient design. This microphone can take power from the XLR cable, or supply its own phantom power with an additional AA battery.
