I hadn't seen much of a review addressing this mic for use with audio reproduction in a Venue or live music setting- so here are my two cents. I have to say that the frequency response has proven shockingly true with a variety of ensembles, and has generally been a pleasure to work with given its compact size. I use this mic in conjunction with a Kodak Playtouch HD Palm Camera, and it has totally transformed the quality of live recordings. One of the best purchases i've ever made. Could not recommend it highly enough.

I tested it with Sony DSLR a560. Without the battery I can hear a sound like a working motor (quiet though), but I did not mount it on the camera, besides, the camera was recording at memory stick not on a HDD or like that. My guess, that this was an EM interference. Without battery there was mono recording - no matter what side from I would speak, the sound was on the middle in the playback. With battery in, the interference was 99% gone, but hiss is appear. Not much, but I can tell the difference in the quiet room or if you playing back through headphones, and - yes, there is stereo. When I compared the sound with battery out to the sound with battery in, the last one was more clear and a little bit louder. With the battery out, at the same distance from microphone (about 1 yard), the sound was like the battery was dieing: 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. I wrote about this issue to Audio-Technica. Here is what they answered:

"Although the microphone will operate using plug-in power, we recommend using battery power for optimal performance. There are no standards for plug-in power, so the voltage varies by device, resulting in inconsistent performance. This does not explain the mono recording issues; I have not had any reports of this. I recommend simply replacing the battery before important shoots; LR44 batteries are available at most drug stores, etc. and are fairly inexpensive."

In two words.

Straight-forward, easy to use. The reproduction of recorded sounds is excellent. The stereo feature works very well with good separation of left/right placement. Very reasonably priced, a good quality microphone for the video/audiofile.

I used this mic attached to my nikon d3200. I've used it for recording my friends and family just goofing around. I was also curious about its capabilities using it in musical applications. I've uploaded a video using the mic in a room with terrible acoustics recording drums. The camera is positioned high and is picking up cymbals heavily. The first half of the video is straight out of the camera with the audio setting on the camera on auto. The second is edited in Adobe Audition to show how well you're able to improve the sound with some work. Set it to manual and monitor the sound while recording, and you will get even better results with less noise. The reason why I recorded in this setting is to try and match the heavily unbalanced acoustics at some bars and nightclubs.

I bought this to use with my Canon 60D. Yes it wasn' t the most expensive option out there , but I have used it on several occasions from birthday parties , filming the grand kids and the dogs in the back yard and on vacations and it works great . Only draw back : must buy batteries for it . They are inexpensive and you can pick them up at about any store , just make sure to have a couple around ( just in case ). I love it , much better then the on camera mic., small and easy to use , Thanks.

I needed a mic to remove the awful motor sounds that came from my Canon cameras (on board mics are so sensitive to all sounds) so I bought an Audio-Technica long, shot-gun mic and it worked very nicely indeed. However, I found the shot-gun mic a bit cumbersome at times when I was shooting without a boom operator so I bought the Audio-Technica Pro24CM and it delivered what I needed. It's a short, light-weight mic with good subject sensitivity and clear sound with no awful camera motor noise to contend with. The mic is powered by a small battery for those cameras that don't have on-board phantom power. I attached the mic to an L-shaped bracket (that Amazon also sells) which in turn attaches to the camera base and I'm ready to shoot! It's a great little microphone for cameras with a 1/8 mic jack. At the time of purchase, I got it at a very good sale price and delivery time from Amazon was very fast and hassle free.

I bought this for my JVC Everio GZ-HM1 to record a classroom activity after reading the glowing reviews and this mic being within my budget. I was excited when the package arrived as like what others said, the build was nice, not the plasticky quality of other low end microphones. It is small and fits my camcorder shoe adapter. Unfortunately, those are the only positive things about this item. Function-wise, this is not a good mic. My built-in camcorder mic picked up more sound. I thought that it was the battery that came with it so I bought a new "watch" type battery that this mic uses. Even with a new battery and the phantom power of the camcorder, the built in mic always comes out with the best sound. I am not a professional but maybe I received a lemon, I did something wrong, my camcorder mic is better or this is really an inferior product. One thing is certain : This will be going back.
