The shipping cost of your order is estimated upon checkout. The fee is generally R150 within South Africa for orders that are under R5 000. For orders above R5 000, shipping is free within South Africa.
Shipping times are generally:
Shipping fees include handling and packing fees as well as postage costs and import duties into South Africa. Although shipping includes insurance, the package/s will be dispatched at your own risk. However, due to the nature of the items being purchased, special care is taken to protect fragile objects. Boxes are amply sized by either the manufacturer or by the staff of Pro Gear SA, and your items are well-protected.
The estimation is performed according to the weight of items (the larger of either physical or volumetric), where the item originates, and is calculated live to get the best rates possible. Shipping items are bundled together per supplier, where possible, in order to save on shipping costs. (We have negotiated discount rates with shipping companies).
We deliver orders anywhere in South Africa. Should you be outside of South Africa, we can still arrange delivery to you. Please contact us directly before placing your order, so we can confirm shopping costs.
Payment may be made via Visa, MasterCard, Debit and Credit cards, as well as Instant EFT (SID). All our payments are secure and handled by Paygate and FNB. We have negotiated a merchant account in order to keep these costs as low as possible. Another option is for you to handle your own bank EFT transfer, as this will carry an even lower processing fee. (Place an order, receive your invoice and pay it using the order number as a reference). Orders will only be processed once the funds are reflected in Pro Gear SA's account.
Pro Gear SA does not directly offer financing for any of the products available on our website. However, we know that professional gear can be expensive. That's why we've teamed up with South Africa's top finance providers, so you can get the gear you need today and get your production started.

The MKE 600 from Sennheiser is a shotgun microphone designed for use with a camcorder or video DSLR. Building on the company's extensive expertise in designing shotgun microphones, it is able to take on even the toughest video sound challenges, while still being compact and short relative to previous models. With its high level of directivity, the microphone focuses on the sounds in front of the camera, while attenuating unwanted sound coming from the sides and rear.
An included foam windshield reduces the effect of wind noise, while a switchable low-cut filter adds additional wind and handling noise attenuation. The MKE 600 can be phantom powered or operated on an AA battery for about 150 hours. An integrated camera shoe and shock mount provides convenient on camera mounting. The rugged and all metal housing means the microphone will function perfectly in outdoor recording situations.
