Great value at this price

  • Excerpt: I'm the senior videographer at a non-profit summer camp. So I am looking for the most bang for our bucks, and this fits the bill. Considerably less than $, it still gives me great performance. It has two modes. Normal and Telephoto. I don't recommend Telephoto since it ramps up the noise floor considerable. But normal mode is great.The coiled cord is somewhat long, which can be advantageous for flexible mounting situations, but can also dangle and get in the way.
  • Pros: Good Quality, Inexpensive
  • Cons: Hard Mount

  • Excerpt: I wasn't expecting the greatest piece of sound equipment in the world, but I was hoping for something better in this inexpensive, on-camera microphone. The sound quality was awful, voice volume was muffled and there was awful background noise throughout my recordings. I tried several new batteries other than the one that came with the device (because there is no battery level indicator) and the results were the same.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Noisy, Unreliable

  • Excerpt: Used for a wedding from the balcony of an older church with not much sound reinforcement. It picked up better than the camera mic but was not as good as I had hoped. In other not so extreme situations it worked great - good sound from a $ mic.
  • Pros: Great Sound Quality

Great Quality for the Price!

  • Excerpt: I bought this mic to make a video I needed to do out on the street and didn't want to use the camera's built-in mic. I used it with the Canon VIXIA HF R400 with good success. I was shooting in fairly busy streets with my presenter about 10 feet away. On the telescopic setting, the mic worked well to pick up the presenter's voice, although it also picked up a lot of other noise as well. For the price, I was very pleased with the product.

  • Excerpt: Planned to use this mic to improve voice isolation for home-studio dialogue recording. Found that the "Normal" mode provided better directional isolation at the cost of an overall muffled quality, while they "Tele" mode failed completely to provide any directional isolation.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: Noisy, Unreliable
