Avoids Motor and Handling Noise!


from Denver, Colorado  -  Professional Enthuiast

In defense of this little add-on LUMIX stereo mic, it makes a greart ambient recorder for outdoor events and concerts, in particular. It isolates the audio from any autofocus or zoom motor noise withing the camera, so in that sense it's a huge step up from the internal mics. Also, it doesn't overload easily and gives a clean, moderately-compressed signal. It's not a shotgun -- those are equally affordable if that's what you're looking for.

It should work . . .


from Northwest USA  -  Master Expressive Artist

I do not yet know the best application for this mic. It is supposed to do well picking up sound at a distant. The built in mic doesn't, so I am hoping I get 20+ feet of audio pick up. We'll see. BW

Works great!


from NorCal

The internal mic on the GH1 works very well but this mic is a huge improvement. First thing I notice is the internal mic pick up my breathing if I use the viewfinder! Not with this one! The audio quality is very good and the directionality really helps along with the wind cut. Be sure to check the battery regularly and remember to turn it on and off! I've forgotten a few times!

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
LETAO T  Better directional control over recorded sounds, especially when you're trying to pick up the voice of the person in front of you over atmospheric noise.
Jerry w  I have an older model panasonic dvd camcorder (AG DVC-10) will this mic work with it?
KIRK R  I'd think that it would as long as the camera accepts 2.5mm plug on the MS1, not the 3.5mm that is commonplace. If not, an inexpensive adapter would convert.
