Great little mic

  • Excerpt: I first used this guy back in '09 or '10 in Africa. Low-Profile. Audio was great! I was using the 5d Mark II then. I had it mounted to the side of an On-Camera light with a mount that had a Cold-Shoe. I did a lot of candid interviews, and so a lot of times I simply pulled it off my camera and had someone hold the mic closer. I don't know if the cable was longer then, but it performed wonderfully! Unfortunately, the shock mount broke early on(probably my own fault..
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality, Lightweight, Long Lasting, Low Profile

Good starter mic

  • Excerpt: This is my first video microphone. I use it on a Sony A7S. I've heard a big improvement in audio quality. It has a "wide" sound rather than a directional sound.Two issues I've had: (1) The foam windscreen doesn't stay on. I should have learned to affix it on somehow after the first dozen times it fell off. I finally lost it the other day and a replacement is $.(2) The LED power indicator just does a very brief flicker when you turn the mic on.
  • Pros: Great Sound Quality, Lightweight
  • Cons: Flimsy

Great Microphone

  • Excerpt: The MKE 400 is definitely compact, which is great for videography when you want to be as mobile as possible. The design is simple which makes it easy to use. The results are great too, my camera feels naked without it now.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality, Lightweight

  • Excerpt: This is a great buy. Use it for shooting in the field at events. Not as directional as I thought it would be.

Better than the Rode videomic???

  • Excerpt: After careful and tedious research looking for an on camera shotgun mic, I was debating on going with this or the Rode vidomic pro. I'm glad to say that this was my right choice. Evn though both seem to be the same in terms of quality, the MKE 400 fits my shooting style better because of it's small size and sturdy design. Definitely recommend this to anyone who is in need of a starter mic for their dslr.
  • Pros: Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality, Lightweight, Long Lasting, Sturdy
  • Cons: Too Small For Some

  • Excerpt: Although not a pro quality mic, this does a great job for DSLR on camera mics and sure beats the nikon camera mic. Nice sound. Good for interviews. Nice screening out of background sounds.

Great mic for a great price!

  • Excerpt: I got this mic on sale for $[$]. It's a great little compact mic with good full-range audio pickup. I'm sure there are better mics, but it's great for my uses and I would buy it again...especially for the price I paid.
