I use this mic and recorder for DSLR video, but more often I use it for simultaneous audio reporting and still shooting. The option to record straight to the mic makes this possible. This is a really hot mic that reaches out and grabs your subject.

I wish I would have purchased another mic like the rode. This one has very poor sound rejection from back and sides, and the audio quality is only decent. I do not advise this mic.

I'm returning this after a lot of frustration. It is solid, yes that's true. But the battery compartment is fiddly. And worse, I feel like the sound quality is not good. It picks up absolutely everything and even when the meters say it is not peaking, the voice I recorded sounded awful.

Once you get in the habit of turning sound on and off on the camera , it seems to work as well as Zoom H6.. The windsock is better.

I'm using this mic to add additional audio to videos recorded on my Sony FRDAX33. So far the audio recorded on the camera's built in mic has been clearer, higher-gain and more detailed than the Shure. I also have Shure Beta57s, 55SH, KSM141 and KSM44. I can't say enough good things about those...

It's built like a tank, sounds fantastic, and the ability to record crystal clear and hiss-free audio directly to memory is a killer feature. The pass-through signal can be set quite strong which allows the horrible DSLR preamps to be turned way down as well, eliminating most hiss when recording to...

I've always loved shure microphones, and the quality it brings, so when i got the news of this new LensHopper I had to get it! I've been using this LensHopper mic with my Nikon coolix P7700 to capture interviews and live performances, and I must say that it really have made a huge difference in the...

Not going to replace a real shotgun or a wireless lavaliere, but it worked better than I thought it would. I was especially surprised that it didn't pick up much autofocus noise. I hope I live long enough to see high quality audio and audio controls integrated into DSLRs.
