Best Bang-for-your-Buck DSLR Microphone! – NA-Q7 Professional Stereo Microphone for DV / DSLR Camera - Black (2 x AA) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
- sturdy design - resistant - high quality sound recording - easy to attach to the camera - easy to use it, choosing the 90° or 120° modes (90° picks up sounds from the front of the mic. 120° picks up sounds from the front and around it. The 90° is good for filtering noise, which may disturb the footage) - the shock mount is very effective to reducing equipment noise - uses convenient 2xAA batteries, which can be rechargeable or not - relatively lightweight to its size. Can be adapted to a shoulder rig quickly.
Cons:
- although it comes with a pre-amplification, it could use a little more. The recorded sound could be a bit higher, but that's not a property exclusive to this mic. This happens with all of the major companies as well, so this is not really a con.
Other:
This mic gives a very professional look to your camera, being it a camcorder or a DSLR. It's really cool design. Along with it's properties, it's a MUST HAVE.
Bottomline:
If you need a good external microphone but don't afford to buy an expensive one from other well-known companies, you will be very pleased by acquiring this one. It's good and much cheaper. Go for it!
