Easy to use mic... bad sound quality with a Canon T3i
on June 22, 2016
This review is a warning for audio and video beginners who are looking for an easy way to improve sound quality when filming with a Canon T3i.. This mic was inexpensive and I have no audio production experience so the issues I had may not be a problem for others. I purchased this mic to use while filming videos with my Canon T3i which has pretty bad audio quality. After looking up some tutorials online I figured out how to plug this mic directly into my camera to become the primary audio source. The sound quality was terrible! There was a really bad buzzing sound in the background, even worse than using the camera audio. After doing some research I learned that this is a common issues that people had using this mic with the T31 (something about the camera interface causing the background noise). I understand that this doesn't necessarily reflect the quality of the mic, still I purchased it to improve the quality of my audio with my camera and it didn't happen.
