Top Customer Reviews
Directional microphone so it drastically helps reduce background noise such as wind, objects, or television.
Clarity is better when shooting a subject directly
Comes with Wind Screen for better quality outdoors
Can set mics to 0 degrees or 120 degrees depending on the subject you are shooting
Videos seem to have a very feint white noise which I believe is coming from the microphone
A little pricey but still worth it
This is a very nice pro quality microphone that captures extremely life like audio. It's honestly better than my Rode Stereo Mic. This mic is very compact, it's got a bit of weight to it and it is very tall and a bit wide. But for an on-camera mic, this is as good as it gets for these kinds of mics in this price range and size.
The mic eliminates sounds captured by your hands rubbing against the camera body, and thanks to it being tall it isolates the audio better on what you're capturing. The mic is split between two channels and can be manually adjusted from 0* to 120* for either capturing audio on a single subject, to a wide acoustic setting like a concert or party. And having it manually adjustable makes it great for acclimating to different audio situations on the fly.
It comes with a windscreen, an audio cable for connecting to the mic port on the camera, and a rubber spacer ring if you have a camera model with a sliding compartment to keep the piece from hitting the mic and causing unwanted pick up by the compartment door hitting the mic.
It also has a dedicated switch for switching between normal audio recording and low-cut audio to reduce vibrations and background noises and wind. It's a very smart and well engineered microphone, and certainly better than the older model Sony stereo microphone, and for such a compact unit, it has amazing audio capture that certainly gave my Rode stereo mic a run for its money.
It is a pricy microphone. Not gonna lie, this is the price you are going to pay pretty much anywhere you go, I have not seen it cheaper anywhere. But if you ask me, it's almost worth picking up if you're planning on buying a new Sony camcorder or camera in the high price range. If you have a high quality camera, then you will want high quality audio out of it. I definitely recommend it if you don't want to spend $300 on a microphone, this is just the right microphone for almost every need you'll have.
Consider this unit seriously if you plan to shoot videos and take snapshots inter-changeably.
Spoiled by the Camera. While it's a great all-around microphone with a solid ability to pickup lows to highs, it is hampered by the camera's inability to control the gain or disable the on-board auto-gain. That single factor has proven troublesome to get good audio from live performances when the singing is quiet or someone is speaking from a distance. The other thing the camera does is record nearly all audio at peak levels. When importing the video/sound into Final Cut Pro, I have to lower the volume level 12db so the audio won't distort on playback! This has very little to do with the microphone, but it is a failure of the video camera itself to not allow any adjustments to audio.
