Excerpt: This mic is everything I expected it to be. I mostly use it for Documentary style video when I do not want to invade peoples bubbles putting a Lav on them. I also use it for product videos. The sound is crisp and clear. Very easy to use and a great Mic for the price.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Excerpt: Great shotgun in it's price range. Not the cleanest or lowest noise shotgun out there, but it blows on camera mics out of the water and has pretty decent directionality. I wouldn't go for any other mic in it's price range.
Pros: Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Excerpt: I use this with my Sony PWX-FS7. It's a great mic for the most part and I'd recommend it but it has a few short comings. The only way to turn off the battery power is to unscrew the battery case and pull the batteries out. There is no power switch.
