We now have four of these, and they get used in all sorts of situations, always providing excellent, professional results. The SPL rejection from the sides is excellent. We have used them on fixed rigs overhead on news desk sets, and also on a handheld boom pole. Solid. Professional.
I used this for the first time this weekend and it was a huge step up from the sennheiser mke400. Sounds so much better. Now I'm starting to get used to this mic tho. what becomes aparent really quick is that the noise floor is pretty high. The mic sounds good but for budget shoots.
I use the AT897 for recording sound in my films. Before this, I was using the rode videomic for all my sound. The original one. It was decent, but just plugging this mic into my zoom h2n recorder made a huge difference. I could hear the difference just in the recorder's built-in speaker.
Audio for video production.
Great shotgun mic on a budget. Usually only shoot single person interviews, but when I needed to recorded two subjects a once I bought another AT897.
I really like the sound quality of this microphone -- it works well with my Tascam 100 MKii, and the length of this shotgun is perfect. I can fit all my gear perfectly into a small backpack. The sound is bright and clear, and is my go-to for interviews and even voice-tracking.
I used this mic at a church as I was filming a young female pastor. I simultaneously used a shure lapel mic. There was no comparison in that my AT897 was so clear and clean even when the speaker moved away from the mic. Editing the video was the easiest project ever.
After using an AT-875R for a few weeks and finding it very noisy and tinny, I switched to the AT897. What a difference! Good, balanced response, a comfortable length, and excellent directionality make this mic a joy to use, and from the first shoot our sound was improved tremendously.
I'm a prosumer wedding videographer. This mic gives better sound than probably any on-board camera microphone. You'll pick up a little more bass at times. This microphone is not sick (in a good way), but it is solid and does what I need it to do.
I'm an amateur film maker using a DSLR, a juicedlink preamp and now this. It took my sound quality up a huge degree!
