I had an EPK I was doing for a band, and when it came time for interviews I was loathe to use the shotgun mic I had, which had a really high signal to noise ratio, and very weak pickup. Someone offered for us to use this instead, and after I plugged it into my Tascam DR-60 II I was blown away.
I bought this because my previous shotgun mic was causing too much hissing in my audio. This mic causes no hissing when paired with an audio recorder that has preamps with high enough quality to support it. Very happy with the quality of this product.
I love this mic. We do green screen interviews and on location interviews a lot and the range to quality this thing delivers is great. The price point for what you are getting just makes it hat much better.
Is this perfect. No. Can the average person hear the difference between this a one costing 3 times as much. Nope. I shoot talking head videos and interviews both indoors and out. For me works better than a lav. Does exactly what I need.
I used this mic to record a live musical performance. I mounted it onto of my camera and recorded with a tascam 60 dr. The quality of the recording was astounding! The mkh 416 is only marginally better. Great mic for the money!
I love the sound quality so far! Feels like a really great value for the price.
perfict with 48V phanton power ( why called phantom) it just +48Volts. It weaker on 1.5V battery. It looks and acts as professional Mic.
I finally had a chance to get this mic and the AT 897 I also bought out into the field for testing. I mounted both on a Canon XH A1 video camera using XLR inputs without attenuation and the mic levels on the camera all the way up.
Clean and Crisp. Some room reverb noticable but it is minimal. So far, so good. The only down side is the length... when mounted on the camera, you can see the tip of the mic in your shot. (this is often the case with shotguns though).
I've used this mic previously as a handheld and currently camera mounted (for field doc shooting). The sound quality is top notch -- clearly picks up the voices I want while reducing the noise that I don't.
