Video Review: Aputure Deity shotgun microphone

We review Aputure’s Deity microphone, a $369 USD shotgun they’re pitching in the same league as Sennheiser’s MKH-60 and 416, or the Schoeps CMC641. Aputure say this is an “extremely durable” mic so we drop it, drown it and bash it around. Does it survive? Watch the video to find out.
