Excerpt: I have had this microphone for about four years now used on both a Sony DCR-VX2100 and a Sony HDR-CX580, and I have been generally very pleased with the results. It has captured entirely realistic sound of musical live performances, done very well as a boom mic in outdoor envrionments for my film...
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Interface With Camcorder, Lightweight
Excerpt: There is little to no sound collected by this microphone. I tested on both my DSLR 9Nikon D5300) and my Sony camcorder. I tested at auto levels and differing audio sensitivity levels on both. At mid to low levels, there is almost no sound (except for the hissing ... yes hissing even at a low level).
Excerpt: Good accessories, But a worthless mic. This is just 2 simple mic condenser that need energy to work, so you have an 1.5V AA battery inside! It's NOT an AMPLIFIED microphone! Yes, the volume is really low!
Excerpt: I bought this mic to use as an on-camera mic. It sounds worse than the built in mic on my Canon Vixia camera. The signal to noise ratio is horrible. To get anything decent, you have to talk within 1 foot away from this mic, and even then the frequency range doesn't sound that good.
Pros: Lightweight, Quality Construction
Cons: Bad Sound Quality, Noisy, No Performance Improvement
Excerpt: This Mic just improved the internal mic on my DSLR's big time. Not only it sounds better but the general noise volume ratio is great to the point that you cna used it as a main audio capture. Grat price for this good equipment.
Pros: Easy To Use, Improves Performance, Lightweight
Excerpt: This microphone has been the most useful to me in recording live musical performances. The sound I get is greatly realistic, and while not a replacement for a professional soundboard recording, it has resulted in a great deal of praise from the bands I've worked with.
