  • Excerpt: I used this mic to record a live musical performance. I mounted it onto of my camera and recorded with a tascam 60 dr. The quality of the recording was astounding! The mkh 416 is only marginally better. Great mic for the money!

Worth the money

31 January 2013
  • Excerpt: I finally had a chance to get this mic and the AT 897 I also bought out into the field for testing. I mounted both on a Canon XH A1 video camera using XLR inputs without attenuation and the mic levels on the camera all the way up. I was shooting birds in trees 30 to 100 feet away and did voice testing of myself a few feet in front of the camera.

Clean and Crisp

  • Excerpt: Clean and Crisp. Some room reverb noticable but it is minimal. So far, so good. The only down side is the length... when mounted on the camera, you can see the tip of the mic in your shot. (this is often the case with shotguns though).
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality
  • Cons: Long

Fantastic Sound

LLdoc, B&H Photo
19 October 2012
  • Excerpt: I've used this mic previously as a handheld and currently camera mounted (for field doc shooting). The sound quality is top notch -- clearly picks up the voices I want while reducing the noise that I don't. Despite its longer length I still find the best one stop shop option for my purposes -- I use it primarily with a shock mount attached to my shoe mount, though I've gotten an extra shoe mount attachment to replace the camera's (EX3) mic mount in order to use both an...

AT8035 is a better shotgun mic value than the $1000 Sennheiser 416

  • Summary: Although the proper name of this mic doesn't not include the word "cable," make no mistake: It's one heck of a great mic. It's an ideal replacement for the Sennheiser 416 shotgun mic, so popular for sound stages, location shoots and voiceovers in Hollywood, but at 1/4th the price. Buy an AT8035 or its forerunner, the 835b (no difference that I can hear). You'll be glad you did.

Workhorse

  • Excerpt: We use the 8035 mic for recording audio interviews through a Zoom H4n recorder and also plug the mic directly into video cameras. It has a great range so we don't have to have the mic uncomfortably close to the subject. The audio quality is terrific.

Very Effective Product

12 March 2012
  • Excerpt: I am a minor league baseball broadcaster and use the mic to capture the sounds on the field. In most stadiums, it is set up just outside the radio booth window, located behind home plate and up a level. It still captures the crack of the bat for a hit and gets great crowd noise.
