  • Excerpt: I picked up this mic to use mostly as a boom in my small production package. The sound I got from a series of exterior shoots (sometimes with noise and light wind) was as good as similar shotguns with slightly higher price tags such as the Rode and Sennheisers.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Interface With Camcorder, Improves Performance, Lightweight, Quality Construction

  • Excerpt: I use this mic mounted to my AG-AC90 and as a Boom mic. The mic construction quality is excellent as is the sound quality. The base cut is quite effective in reducing the ever present HVAC rumble that can ruin interview audio.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Interface With Camcorder, Lightweight, Quality Construction
  • Cons: No Dead Cat, No Hard Case

  • Excerpt: I bought these mics because of reading their praise in Sound on Sound magazine recently. They held true to words about their "warm" sound. In the field I was able to capture door slams, footsteps, ambient sounds all very clearly without that feeling that "something is missing"..
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Interface With Camcorder, Improves Performance, Lightweight, Low Noise, Quality Construction

Great for the price

  • Excerpt: The product has a great feel, I'm using it with a Zoom H4N, to be honest I wasn't expecting it to be that good, it captures the sound very crisp and loud. At first I tried it with the Azden SWS-200 High Performance Softie Windscreen on, the sound was ok but as soon as I removed it, I was amazed.
