Excerpt: I am a wedding cinematographer who just started last year,so I was on a tight budget. I read a million lav mic reviews and I read mixed reviews for this mic. In the end though it was super cheap and there were some good reviews so I finally bought it. I was disappointed.

Pros: Compact Design, Low price, No batteries required, Omni-directional, Short cord
Excerpt: I think this thing is awesome. It allows me to record with my hands free so I don't need to walk around and act like I'm hiding something in my hand. The only thing better would be a wireless mic.
