I've had this microphone for about two months, and I am extremely happy with it. I am using it primarily with a Canon XA20, but I have also used it with a Sound Devices MixPre-D, and it works great with both.
I use this mic with my DSLR and my Canon X10 & XF100. This mic performs extermelly well as a mono, stereo, M+S. It is compact, clear, crisp and worth every penny. I have mics twice the price and they are not as functional or clear and useful as these. Hence, I have 4 of them for all my video needs.
A good mid/side mic for the money (I just can't afford anything much more expensive). While I haven't really tried the canned L/R modes, the M/S mode is sensitive and works well when properly processed in something like Soundtrack or Logic after recording.
I use this microphone to record in nature and I can see through the 3 settings very well the perfect sound. Until today, I noticed no wind or noise sensitivity. For me, the switch to use is a little bit difficult(too small).
very directional, with good stereo presence and useful adjustability. Very quiet self noise.
Given that this mic predates the widespread use of DSLRs for video production, the only thing that could make this better would be an internal battery option, so it did not require phantom power via XLR.
In terms of low cost and convenience it is hard to beat the BP4029. With two capsules in the compact body it is easy to use in the field and to mount and cover with a windscreen.
Just got this mic and immediately started using it for a run-and-gun style feature film and it is a charm! A great field mic for the price! I absolutely love the selectable x/y pattern!!! You can really hear the difference.
I use this mic on a Sony A1U HDV camcorder. If you know that camera you know that requires using the XLR set add-on. While this mic doesn't have the very best spec's (signal to noise, dynamic range) compared to other professional camera-mounting mics, the price and size make it a great fit for this...
