The Comica Audio Traxshot is a versatile camera-mount shotgun microphone for DSLR/mirrorless cameras and iOS/Android smartphones equipped with a headphone jack. It features two separate mic capsules that can be independently oriented to capture directional speech, 2-person interviews, music, or natural ambience—by selecting either a mono, stereo, or front/rear pickup pattern.
This all-in-one microphone allows mobile journalists, vloggers, and videographers to do more while carrying less, providing expanded audio options for shooting clear-sounding YouTube, Facebook, TikTok, wedding, outdoor/sports, music, or family videos at home or on the go.
Plug-and-play with simple operation, the Traxshot lets you switch between four pickup modes to suit your scenarios and usage requirements. You can choose between a Mono Mode, a tight 30° Stereo Mode 1, a wide 90° Stereo Mode 2, or a bidirectional Front/Rear Mode. The mic plugs into the 3.5mm TRS audio input of your camera or the 3.5mm TRRS headphone jack of your phone using the included cables.
The Traxshot features a continuously variable gain knob to adjust your recording level on the fly and a 3.5mm audio output that allows you to plug a set of headphones to monitor the quality of your sound while shooting. A high-resolution IPS display lets you clearly see the microphone status and battery life.
The mic has an integrated shoe mount outfitted with a proprietary Air-Float shockmount that absorbs vibrations in all directions. There is also a 1/4"-20 thread at the bottom for mounting on a tripod. The built-in windshield effectively reduces ambient wind noise. For outdoor shooting, a low-cut filter and two included furry windmuffs help reduce low-frequency noise caused by stronger wind and/or camera shake. The rugged, all-metal construction provides additional shielding against RF interference.
The mic operates up to 20 hours on a built-in battery that can be recharged via the USB Type-C port, using the included USB cable.
