The Ball -- a phantom-powered dynamic mic -- is designed to solve the problems of frequency-dependent variable resistance, phase coherence, noise specification, and overall output found in normal dynamic mics. By incorporating a phantom-powered active balancing circuit in The Ball's output stage, these problems are overcome. This circuit maintains a constant pure-resistive 50-ohm load across the usable frequency spectrum yielding an exceptionally smooth and open sound previously unheard-of in a dynamic microphone. The Ball Microphone also features extremely high sound pressure level handling.

...converter samples the audible frequency as close as possible to the source, regardless of the rate. If 1000Hz is a blue ball and a camera takes a picture of it, a quality camera will produce a picture of a blue ball like the source. Now if there was a setting on the camera that...

...If so, a mic with more proximity effect might do it. A widely hated but cool IMO mic is the Blue Ball (they one that is actually blue and a dynamic). Has a ton of proximity effect as well. Hope it works out!
