Excellent and Versatile


from Scottsdale AZ  -  Tech Savvy

High quality sound, flexible set up and useful as an on-camera mic and as a stand alone recorder. I use it as a two-mic set up, by using the built in camera stereo mic as wide angle ambient recording, then use the Shure to record the performers or the interview. Marry the two sound recordings in post and you have the best of both worlds. The recorder function is what really sets this one part. Very pleased


Sounds Excellent & no hiss on Fuji X-E1


from Scotts Valley, CA

This mic sounds even better than I expected. It is warm and rich and clear. Build quality and suspension are far nicer than Rode video mic pro. Sound seems clearer than the Rode, and much richer than the Sennheiser MKE400. I bought a 3.5mm-to-2.5mm adapter at Radio Shack to attach this to my Fuji X-E1. Then I turned Fuji pre-amp gain to minimum setting. There is still so much gain that I can only use the mic's +20dB setting in very quiet situations. Mostly the 0dB or -10dB settings work well, and I get no hiss when using them. I think there is just a very low hiss when using +20dB, but very minor. I highly recommend this product.
