Good enough for regular hdslr video stuff – Mini Professional Stereo Microphone for DV Camcorder (1 x CR2) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
- Quite easy to use
- sound quality is good enough for regular family videos etc.
Cons:
- Build quality could be better. I worry a bit that I might break it. Especially the lid for the battery.
- Takes a hotshoe mount (but that's to be expected)
- The power led logic was a bit unclear to at first. It blinks once when you put it on, but it isn't on all the time. I guess it saves battery that way. The logic is explained in the user guide, but everytime I use it I forget it and I get worried it isn't working.
Other:
Bottomline:
It does what it promises. A good regular mic for cameras. Obviously it won't satisfy any high end hifi folks, but that isn't the purpose for the mic anyways. I'm happy with it and used it i.e. to film my daughters birth.
