It conveniently connects to the Smart Accessory Terminal of your a DSLR camera and has a wind screen to help eliminate wind noise and insulate the microphone from operational sounds from the lens and camera. There's also a convenient movie function for dynamic sound recorded during video clips and an included carrying case. Connects via a 3.5mm plug.

This Mic was purchased a year ago to use with my NEX7 Camera and equipement... It has been around the World, and used for major recording events... It works very well, clear & crisp sound... Now I am using it also with my new Alpha 99, and it workes even better... For a very small compact mic to use when travelling, this is just the ticket!
Better than built in Microphone but off/on swich makes it easy to use up batteries. Easy to carry and install but no substitute for GOOD sound.
Light weight and easy to use but need a battery to operate. You have to switch ON in order to operate and if you forgot to switch it Off when not in use, it will eat up your battery. I like the nikon stereo mic better, no need of battery, just plug in and ready to go.
