Excerpt: Bought this to use an external mic for my GoPro HERO 3+. Use it to catch better audio on my car while driving at speed. Along with a 'dead cat' windscreen, it works very well! Compact, versatile in ability to mount it, and very importantly, doesn't require an internal power source.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Excerpt: I modified my GoPro Hero 3 waterproof case in order to use this Sony ECM-DS70P stereo mic and GoPro Mic adapter. This will allow better sound recording while trail, enduro and dual sport riding in Ohio on my Husaberg TE300. I will also use it on my Canon EOS 60d.
Excerpt: Sony ECM-DS70P works perfectly with Zoom H2n digital recorder once you turn on Zoom's mic phantom power setting. audio quality is every bit as good as Zoom's internal mics. I use this mic for voice recording where it is better to move recorder up to one meter away from recording position.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Easy To Use, Includes 1 Meter Cable, Includes Clip, Lightweight, Simple Use, Small
Excerpt: This is a great product for what I need to use it for most, which is recording live music. The sound quality comes out crystal clear when I plug it into my pocket size camcorder. The size is perfect too, it's not bulky and it's very light. I can easily carry it around without any problem. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone browsing around for a durable microphone.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight
Excerpt: I was disappointed as I have used Sony products for years. I bought this mic to go with my Kodak Zi8 as I had heard that the Zi8 internal mic was not that good. That is not true. I wish now I had waited until I tried the Zi8 first before I bought the mic The internal mic has a better sound then the Sony and I now use only the internal mic which has better bass and excellent overall reproduction. Maybe I just got a bad Sony.
Excerpt: I bought this mic along with the Kodak Zi8 because I heard the internal mic on the Zi8 was not that good. I found out this is not true. The Sony ECM-DS70P has to much highs giving a tiny sound. The Zi8 internal mic is very good and more bass then the Sony mic. I don't use the Sony at all now. The Zi8 is a great camera and produces video as well, if not better then camcorders costing much more. I love it.
Pros: Compact, Easily attaches to Zi8, Easy To Use, Lightweight
Excerpt: As a professionnal journalist, it is not always easy to get good recordings from a small pocket recorder, specially when this one is on a table. With the Sony mike, I can lay the recorder flat and the mike vertically, which works fine.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Easy To Use, Versatile
