Excerpt: First, I was not going to spend this kind of money for a mic. However, now that I have used it in the field, I must say it really works well. I use this on a Sony HDR-AX2000. The mic is a bit to small to fit in the mic holder so I put some black tape around it and it holds it very well. This mic is very very directional which is what you want when you shoot video. When you listen to the sound with head phones it is very sharp.
Pros: Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality, Lightweight
Excerpt: This microphone has been the best purchase ever! I had a Rode NKG-2 and after a year and a hlaf the XLR connector begaun to pull out of the bottom. Then on it's final shoot upon disconnecting it, the wires pulled from the mic...and it ahsn't worked since. With this one having a seperate module for the battery I don't foresee this happening. not to mention the different sounds I am able to pick up on, and the extremely good clarity it provides.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Excerpt: I had the opportunity to rent this mic to see if it would work with the productions I record. I was very pleased with the results. After figuring the annual total to rent vs. buying it outright, it was more cost effective to buy and own my mic and have use of it for years to come.
Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight
