Zacuto Micro Boom now available to order

The Zacuto Micro Boom is now available to pre-order. You can pre-order the Zacuto Micro Boom up until the 14th of February for $125 USD which is a discount of $40 USD from the normal price of $165 USD. 

The Zacuto Micro Boom was announced way back in April 2023 and it was touted as being the world’s first lightweight, on-camera audio boom pole.

The tagline for the Micro Boom was “’Get that boom sound without the boom operator!’ The Micro Boom weighs 5 oz / 140g, and it was designed for use with DSLR, mirrorless, ENG cameras, Cinema Cameras, and smartphones using the Zacuto Smart Z-Finder rig system.

The Micro Boom looks like an interesting solution for single operators conducting interviews or anyone who is gathering content for social media, news, events, etc. However, while this is an interesting concept I am not sure how practical it would be to use in the real world. If the camera is on your shoulder I wonder how easy it is to adjust with one hand. You certainly don’t want to walk around at an event or areas where there are lots of people with a boom pole protruding from your camera.
