Compact high quality recording microphone.
Reviewed in the United States on October 10, 2018
I acquired this as a REPLACEMENT for my Rode Stereo microphone. The selector latch broke, and the battery compartment door also broke. But the kicker was that the compartment door for the battery fell off and got lost. The purpose of the needing the microphone is to record my daughter’s performances and her prescreen videos for college applications.
This is a microphone system that connects to the hot shoe. The plug goes into the audio input, and there are two sensitivity: High and Low. A cover allows for wind reduction in outdoor performances. An additional attachment sets the microphone apart from the camera body. This decreases the chance of recording sounds from the lens motor.
The advantages over my Rode are that there is a smaller profile, two microphone heads and no requirement for additional batteries.
The microphone is lightweight and compact. Sound quality is excellent. Using this on my Canon 80D, I am able to fine tune audio recording sensitivity, additional wind reduction, audio recording levels, and also monitor sound quality through a set of audio headphones.
Overall, I’m very pleased.
