It's all about the AGC!

  • Excerpt: I was certainly surprised to find out that the GH3 has an AGC turned on full time. This is very important for people to know in order to figure out the "noise" problem. If your level is set to 1 the camera will boost your quietest passages by 3db.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy to Use, Good Audio Quality, Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor Isolation

Excellent shotgun mic

  • Excerpt: This microphone works perfectly with the GH4. The different settings it unlocks in the gh4's menu are very helpful. This mic is doing a great job being my sole source of audio while I save up for wireless lavs. For the price, this thing can't be beat.

  • Excerpt: It works fine when connected to the GH4. The camera allows you to select the various modes of operation. They are: stero, shotgun, lens coupled stereo, and really narrow shotgun.

No Battery, No Problem

  • Excerpt: Descent sound but the best part is no battery for me to have to worry about turning on or leaving on. Plugs right in the the GH4 and gives me descent sound and is great to help me sync sound from multiple cams in post.

good value for the money

  • Excerpt: Bought this microphone as it was an obviously good partner for my Panasonic GH3. It's procing was competitive with other quality mikes out there and the clincher for me was that it comprises both a directional shotgun mike and a wide stereo mike and comes with a useful though tight fitting wind...

Not impressed

Dreamline, B&H Photo
13 December 2013
  • Excerpt: I bought this to use to beef up the audio capture of my GH3. I really liked the mic itself, solid construction, nice windsock, integrates well with the camera. I also like that it comes with an extension cable for remote use. Heck I even like the sound of the mic, it's a pretty solid shotgun mic.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Extension Cable, Includes Windsock, Lightweight
  • Cons: Noise Floor Unacceptable

If you own a GH3, you should have this.

Creative Jedi, B&H Photo
10 December 2013
  • Excerpt: I think that no GH3 is complete without this microphone. It is perfectly matched to the camera (designed just for the GH3), is very compact, has excellent audio quality, is very fairly priced, and is selectable from shotgun to a very spacious stereo field from the camera's menu.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight, Perfect Match For Gh3
