I take video of soccer games from a Sony Handicam CX-455 elevated on a tripod tower. This mic comes with two cords, including one for smartphones and another for cameras that works with my handicam. I think it is called a 3.5" minijack. It's a short cord (about 7-8") but long enough for my purposes. When it's raining, I put a hood over my handicam and need a separate mic outside the hood. This works great, maybe better than the handicam mic. Great sound, stereo, etc. It also comes with a mount that can be used for standard camera mount connections. I easily tweaked it to attach to my servo on top of the tower. Amazing value for the price. Very happy with the purchase.
