The Rycote Special Small Mini Windjammer provides excellent wind isolation for capturing audio in high-wind environments. Made from high-quality synthetic fur specifically designed for wind isolation, easy-to-fit slip-on fur covers for use when recording outside with the built-in microphones found on portable cameras, external camera mics and handheld reporter microphones.
It has a windshield rating of medium that provides up to 30 dB reduction from the effects of high-wind gust noise and vocal plosives. A touch-fastener strap secures the windjammer in place. Suitable for camera-mounted mics, for use over a foam windshield of 40 mm diameter and 40 mm long.
We now have Mini Windjammer models tailored to fit microphones specifically designed for camera hot shoe mounting. In 1969, Rycote introduced the world’s first microphone windshield system for location sound and electronic news-gathering (ENG). Rycote has since been honoured with a Technical Achievement Award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, and continue to set the standard for professional microphone wind shielding and handling noise reduction.
Some of our Mini Windjammers have 10 mm fur, while others have 25 mm Softie fur for use in more unsettled conditions, and can be fitted to a wide variety of devices. The Rycote Special Small Mini Windjammer reduces the distracting noise and microphone rustling from shooting into a steady breeze or shooting outside when there are bursts of high-gust wind noise. The small-animal aesthetic of Rycote’s Mini Windjammers even eliminates much of the harshness associated with vocal plosives.
