SM-V1

  • Excerpt: I use this with the Canon Vixia HF M40 to shoot railroad video. It seems to improve the sound quality over the built in mic though I haven't tried it out on a windy day. It does appear to be rather delicate so I would recommend being very careful.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Interface With Camcorder, Lightweight

Hearing is believing

  • Excerpt: What a difference this makes. If you have a home theater speaker system, this is a must. Without it, the sound is flat coming from 2 front speakers. With it, the rear speakers kick in to give a more "rich" full sound.

We talk for a minute about it.I play it back on the HDMI into my surround sound system and my wife turns around when she hears my daughters voice thinking she's in the room...

Good quality microphone

Andy, B&H Photo
10 December 2011
  • Excerpt: This microphone has better sound quality than the standard built in mic on the camcorder. It also captures in surround sound, although it's more like 4.1 channels (since the center channel in movies is dialog, so the center channel doesn't apply in the real world).
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Improves Performance, Lightweight, Sound quality
  • Cons: Expensive, Price for features
