Solid Mic

  • Excerpt: I am a video professional, and think that this mic is comparable to the performance of Rode products, for a lesser cost. Does the job, and I am happy with the audio.

  • Excerpt: Improve the sound of the videos is not only achieved with a good microphone and as many think. I chose the SGM-1X because in the future i will buy an external amplifier, this microphone(Output Connectors XLR-3M Type )allows me to use this possibility. Nikon 5100 user.

Exellent Product

  • Excerpt: I have used this product shooting weddings and also for voice-over in television commercials. Sound is clear and has goood rejection of background noise. The battery lasts forever and the on/off switch is a plus. The low cut filter really is good in noisy environments. Have used in the Rode blimp and boom pole as well. Construction is solid. I've owned it for about four years.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Interface With Camcorder, Improves Performance, Lightweight, Quality Construction

Good Quality, Great Price

  • Excerpt: I purchased this product for films I make with friends. As this is a hobby, we don't have a large budget. I did a large amount of research on shotgun microphones before finally deciding on this one. After receiving this product, I tested it with the rest of my sound equipment and was quite impressed with the sound quality given the item's inexpensive price. I have since used it in filming with excellent results.

Great Mic at a Reasonable Price

  • Excerpt: The SGM-1X is a great mic to use with a pro-camcorder. I bought the Canon XA10 recently and loved the camera but not it's on board mic (who does?). I heard about this mic through a tech channel and thought it looked great (and the pro's use it so, how bad could it be). You have to buy cables to go with the mic and I got the Kopul Coiled 3-pin XLR cable.

  • Excerpt: This mic has very high usability and versatility. Tons of uses for it, nice warm sound. Would've liked it better if it actually produces a slightly brighter sound tho. Build is very solid, works very well. Pretty good mic overall....

Mic is fine; shock mount not so much

  • Excerpt: I have been using two of these microphones as part of a beginning film program for about 6 months now. The microphone itself has met my film program's needs. In fact, it draws so little power from the battery that the AAA battery seems to last forever. However, buyer beware about the shock mount that comes with it. If you only intend to use it in the shoe on top of yoru camera, it is fine.
