I've been reasonably happy with it. It fits on a tripod, and either my Nikon DSLR or my Canon camcorder screw firmly on top of it, where I can connect the output cable into the camera. I've even hooked it up directly into my Mac's line-in port for voice recording, although the resulting level is a bit low and has to be boosted substantially in software.
There have been teething pains. I had to find the setting on my DSLR to turn off auto-gain or quiet stretches in my recording would be filled with amped up noise, and I purchased shorter runs of XLR cables to further minimize noise. And it took me a long while to get comfortable with all the switches. For instance finding the M|S switch allowed me to output the left input as stereo, so I didn't need two microphones. Obviously, I'm not a trained sound engineer.
I've been fairly happy with the device but there are a few dings. You will notice that one item purchasers often buy are rechargeable 9V batteries, as this thing runs through batteries quickly. I'd say one an hour or so. Also the microphone jack is much noisier than the primary output, so you won't be able to monitor for noise. It's on the large side and a bit awkward to mount cameras upon.
Noise is quite low which is good because I tend to need high gain with the microphones I bought. My main microphone is a Behringer C-1 which makes good use of the provided phantom power, but needs the gain cranked nearly all the way up.
In general, I'm happy with my purchase but it's been a learning experience.
The reason for 4-stars is power. Having a battery based sound unit, I thought, offers great flexibility and portability for just about any video shoot.
Yesterday I used this unit for the first time on an 8-hour video shoot using a new battery. Three batteries later I'm not at all impressed with the power aspects of this unit and post this information here for transparency and information. It required a new battery in just under 3.5 hours.
The included output connectors are best for camera's, but not long enough to sit under my video camera and connect without over-stretching. I had to use my own.
Beyond power, and simple cables, what a fantastic adapter! It's basic enough to get going fast and once set up in a venue, the monitor provides great feedback and works very well with my system. I love its simplicity.
I'm hopeful that future models will include a hot shoe or AC adapter.
Saramonic gets major kudos for designing a truly beautiful piece of equipment. I would be proud to have this spiffy little red adapter attached to my camera, and it has a really cool, functional attachment plate on both sides... BUT where it falls down is in quality of build. I understand hissing... a lot depends on your mic and any amplification is going to introduce a certain amount. There is a fair amount of hiss. What was a deal-breaker for me was I got this mainly because I want to monitor audio going into the camera and make sure I HAVE audio!!! I was doing a series of tests, and flipping buttons and knobs back and forth to test the different settings, with headphones attached to monitor the audio while I tested. BTW, whoever said one of the buttons is backwards is correct--I don't remember which one. Then, I downloaded the file to the computer. Guess what?? I had a blank space of about two minutes where I was UNAWARE that I had NO AUDIO! I was apparently and in fact monitoring the INPUT and not the OUTPUT! When I didn't get a button flipped quite all the way, I lost audio but couldn't tell. I can't afford to have 2 minutes or 2 seconds of audio missing from a segment, with me as producer unaware and unable to go back later to recreate events. Sent it back.
