Worked Perfectly

The Mic worked perfectly with the new E-PL5 I also purchased from Adorama. The lead was a bit short, but that was not a big deal since any local electronics store or office supply store would have for a few bucks. Installing the Mic was easy, and the pickup was decent enough to keep other noise away.

An External Microphone for the E-M5

By

from Apache Junction, AZ  -  Semi-Professional

Too many camera reviewers are apparently unaware the OM-D E-M5 has an external microphone port — an essential requirement for professional video production! The kit includes everything you need including a clip to pin the included stereo microphone on your talent's clothing. The output sound is much improved over the camera's built-in microphones (which are cancelled out when using this mic kit). If you need even better audio re-production you can plug a professional lavallièr, boom, or wireless system into this port and "Voilá!" you have pro-audio using the E-M5 for your HD video production! What could be cooler? The only things missing which would be a nice addition to the kit are a couple of mini wind socks and a small carrying case for the bits. I've ended up using a rigid shell internally cushioned eyeglass case for this purpose. So if you need pro-audio capability or just want improved sound for your video productions, get this kit. It works!

Great for the OM-D

By

from Ohio  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

A much needed accessory for the OM-D. It lets me use a Sennheiser microphone for video recording, since the OM-D does not have a 3.5mm jack built in.

A needed accessory

By

from Hercules, CA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

This microphone is a must have item to out-perform the built in mic. You need to add on a piece of foam to cut down wind noise though. I modified mine by using a foam brush and it works just fine. I wish the wire is much thicker so it will last longer and provide better transmission. All in all, it is a good accessory to own for making better video.

Questions about this item:

Ayesha M  Does this work on e-pl5?
RICHARD K  I don't know. =( I used it on an E-PM2 currently.
Ralph B  Will this also work on the hot shoe of the Panasonic G5 to gain a mike in?
PATRICIA D  I believe the Flash hot shoes are the same size but not positive. The Panasonic G5 does not have a audio jack but I read it has a mic/remote socket on the left side of the camera for an optional shudder release and external microphone. And two connection ports for connecting to a t.v. or monitor if you buy the mini Hd cable. So it will accept an external microphone I also read you might need to buy a 2.5 to 3.5mm adaptor depending on the mic. you buy. It is a $4. to $5. adaptor. My hot shoe is about 3/4 inch wide, 11/16 inches fit on the camera when I measure the Hot Shoe Cover. My cameras are both olympus.
CHERYL M  Does this work with an OM-D E-M5?
STAN F  Hi Cheryl, The Olympus website shows the SEMA-1 as an accessory for the OM-D E-M5, and is fully compatible. Hope this helps! Stan
