Great Compact Stereo Microphone!


from Denton, Texas

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!


SONY Compact Stereo Microphone


from Goldthwaite TX  -  Semi-pro Photographer

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.


Small and light weight


from Long Beach CA  -  Professional

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.

Questions about this item:

alex d  Hi, is this mic compatible with Nex7? Tks Alex
BRIAN D  It is much better than the built in M7c on my SONY a77 but I do not know if it is compatible with a Nex 7. If it is, it is worth the money, however a caution; It has an off/on switch and if you leave it ON, the next time you use it - no battery power!
