Excerpt: Recently, I acquired a Sony PXW-X70 and needed to find a quality mic in a compact design and without breaking the bank. This camera would be primarily used for recording outings/trips that would end up on some Hunting/Fishing TV shows so I knew that I need to invest in a quality mic.
Excerpt: Even a year after our company first bought this mic, I am still impressed with it. We've used it for numerous outdoor interviews and, with a dead-cat to help with an errant breeze, it does great at minimizing the environment while drawing out the interviewee.

Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Great Quality Of Sound, Lightweight, Versatile

Excerpt: Heavy duty, solid construction, great sound.This thing is solid. It is machined out of one solid piece of aluminum and feels great. I got this model instead of the NTG-2 because I didn't want the weakness of moving parts. I was not disappointed. Sound quality is great.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight
