The build quality is great, it feels so solid compared to the plastic of the Rode. The sound quality is also up to par! With the proper audio levels on your camera, there?s little static, and with an audio recorder, it?s even better!

I just recently go this mic and started doing light testing for far it pick up sound wonderfully, from all around so it'll be great for ambient sounds. It seemingly will also do well in a controlled sound environment as well.

I chose this over the rode videomic and am very pleased with it. The sound quality is great, easy to use and set up, feels more solid and durable than the rode mics and accessing the battery is much easier than the rode as well.

I follow Casey Neistat on YouTube and looked at his gear. This was one of the on-camera mics he used. I had to shoot a small wedding and I needed to be small and nimble so I shot it all handheld on my Canon 7DmkII with this Sure LensHopper mic.

We do a lot of run and gun stuff and this mic works very well for that. We drop it on top of our 4/3 or video camera and go. It picks up a bit more background noise than our Rode videopro but it hones in nicely on the voice.

I love this mic. It's lightweight, compact, and durable. Easy to use and the audio quality is amazing. The only issue I had was unloosing the shotgun mount screw. It took some effort to get it loose, but once it loosen up, it was a breeze. Love it and would recommend it

Just used this for an engagement shot on my secondary DSLR. For one of the two clients the sound was good. Not so much for the second who was a foot or so further away done as a second shot. In studio use and sound has been very good, but not as good as using a lav mic on the client.

Used this on a 5D and a GoPro with great results. The adjustable Db is awesome.
