Win an Elgato Wave:3 mic and Facecam worth £350!

Whether you are vlogging for fun, need to record high-quality audio direct to your computer, or want a far more professional look to your online Zoom meetings, this Elgato Wave:3 microphone and high-resolution Facecam are precisely what you need. And we’re giving one lucky Pro Moviemaker reader the chance to win this exact package, worth £350, in our free-to-enter competition.

The heart of the system is the Elgato Facecam. It has studio-quality optics in a webcam engineered to make you look your best. The lens has eight all-glass elements, with a fast f/2.4 aperture and focal length equivalent of 24mm.

Optimised for indoor use, it is designed for low noise. The sensor is a Sony CMOS unit with high-speed circuitry – this outputs uncompressed video in 1080HD at 60fps. And there’s an onboard memory to recall image settings when you use it on a different computer.

The Facecam has a USB 3.0 interface to transfer low-latency video. A USB-C connector allows ultimate plug and play convenience on Windows or Macs. It can be clamped onto a monitor, or attached to a mount via a standard 1/4-inch thread.

Engineered by Austrian audio experts Lewitt, the mic has a condenser capsule with a tight cardioid polar pattern to capture speech precisely. It uses up to 24-bit/96kHz analogue to digital conversion for incredible detail. High-tech Clipguard technology makes distortion virtually impossible, while high-end circuitry ensures seamless sound transmission. When input levels peak, Clipguard instantly reroutes sound through a second signal path that runs at a lower volume. The result is clean audio output, no matter how loud you scream!

There is a switchable low-cut filter to remove unwanted low-frequency noise, a 3.5mm headphone jack for zero-latency monitoring, and an internal pop filter to prevent plosive breath noise.

A multi-function control dial changes gain, monitor volume and mic/PC mix. An adjustable desktop stand with boom arm adapter gives ultimate flexibility, while custom accessories include a shock mount, external pop filter and desktop stand extension rods. The mic plugs into your Mac or PC via a USB 2.0 port, so it’s as simple as possible. You’ll quickly be sounding good, as well as looking sharp, thanks to this awesome Elgato package. And you can win one for free!
