4.0 out of 5 stars Happy with purchase, March 16, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Audio-Technica PRO24CM Camera-Mount Stereo Condenser Microphone (Electronics)
I purchased this microphone for my JVC HM1 Camcorder to improve sound recording in breezy conditions. The microphone did not come with a fur windscreen as some packages of this microphone do. I aquired some faux fur from a fabric shop and had it sewed into a sock and overall I am very happy with the result in the wind. The difference is having footage that I can now use the audio from.

The microphone has a small amount of noise however the noise reduction filter in premiere removes it with no problem.

I am happy that the cord is short as the microphone is mounted on the camcorder. I also like that I do not need a battery in the microphone as it draws power through the input on my camcorder.

All up I am happy with my purchase.

Did you pay attention that without battery you'll have mono recording? Take off the battery and check recording on the left then on the right. I did. It is mono. There is no indicator for battery life. So, when battery will run down you gonna have mono recording and you'll never even know it.
Happy now?
I'm - not. By the way For Sony Alpha DSLR I gotta buy an adapter now.

I have never inserted the battery and I definately have stereo sound. Like I said the microphone is powered from my camera.

Did you check it in recording: like speak on left side, speak on right side, then listen the play back?
I just got mine today and have spent hell of the time on testing. I tested it with Sony DSLR a560. Without the battery I can hear sound like a working motor, but I did not mount it on the camera, besides, the camera write at memory stick. My guess, that this is EM interference, but mono recording - no matter what side from I would speak. With battery in, the interference is 99% gone, but hiss is appear. Not much, but I can tell the difference, and - yes, there is stereo sound. When I compared with battery out, the sound with battery in is more clear and a little bit louder. With the battery out, at the same distance from microphone (about 1 yard) the sound is like on the dieing battery: vibrating, more quiet and unclear. The camera battery was at 74% - more than enough to power a microphone.
Of cause it might be the camera itself. But camera manual says that external microphone will be powered by camera. Well, and it does but microphone in any way should record the stereo. But stereo recording works with battery in only.
