Perfect Sound - Through a Mixer

Spud, B&H Photo
7 February 2016
  • Excerpt: Use this for my live Man-On-The-Street type of Video Gigs. The sound is strong. When used by itself it can be slightly Boomy unless you set the Gain as needed. I do no Post because I feed my Mics - Shure / AKG / Azden - into a Behringer 1002B Mixer. This Mic is very good and very smooth.

A great and simple mic

  • Excerpt: I have used this mic before as well as a few other types of shotgun mics for dslr's. This is comparable in quality of sound and construction to the Rode VideoMic Pro. Both are great mics and will make a huge difference in your audio capture. This one is slightly less expensive!

Great In A Pinch

24 September 2015
  • Excerpt: This mic was purchased a few days before a trip out of town to shoot video for my business. My old mic seemed to have a problem and I could not longer consider it reliable. The folks at B&H recommended the Shure VP 83, and owning a VP 88 from the good-old-days of pro equipment I knew the Shure name...

  • Excerpt: I have read review I found from googles etc and decide that rather go with Rode unit. I always has been using Shure products and have suggested others so why not. I'm very please with results.

Sound Great - works as advertised

  • Excerpt: I have used the Rhode before - it was great as well Except changing the battery was a bit of a hassle for me. Spoke to BH sales and they recommended the Shure. Much easier to use and it also sounds great.

Exactly what I needed

Alex, B&H Photo
5 May 2015
  • Excerpt: I needed mics for my dslr cameras, and had previously gotten microphones at about half the price that weren't cutting it. I was getting a lot of hissing due to the weak pre-amp on those cameras and I needed something more powerful.

User Review

  • Excerpt: High quality sound, flexible set up and useful as an on-camera mic and as a stand alone recorder. I use it as a two-mic set up, by using the built in camera stereo mic as wide angle ambient recording, then use the Shure to record the performers or the interview.

Good alternative

  • Excerpt: I use the LensHopper on my second Pocket Camera. The first is set up with a pre-amp, but I decided I needed something smaller as a "nose mic" for the other. As everyone knows by now, the Pocket is notorious for thin audio.
