The Panasonic AG-MC200G is a camera mounted condenser microphone with superior directional characteristics than that of standard unidirectional microphones. The focused pickup of the AG-MC200G eliminates audio at the sides of the microphone, greatly reducing ambiance and potential feedback problems. The AG-MC200G uses +48V phantom power and features a standard XLR output. The microphone is ideal for camera use, as well as portable recording devices and field mixers.

      I bought this for my AG-HMC150, and it is awesome. In loud environments (like a wedding), it is still possible to hear what people are saying in front of the camera. It can handle a very loud SPL. I recommend it. The only downside is it is pricey, but you get what you pay for.

      This mic is okay, but I think it's over priced. I've used cheaper mics that do a better job than what this does. It doesnt seem to be able to pick up sound from a reasonable distance compared to other one's I've used.

            I use this mic to shoot adventure and sports documentaries as well as commercials. It works better outdoors than indoors, however, as it picks up a lot of sound (including and not limited to very very low electrical sounds at times). This just means you have to play with levels a bit or directionality. Overall, very powerful and especially good with a wind jammer on.

              I use the mic on a Panasonic AF-100
              For automotive events, interviews and shorts...

              Plug n play, with easy adjustments while on the AF-100
              Very simple to run the wire, mount the mic and first recording was right on point..

              Cable was a hair long for my use, but I just looped it once around a Sony Wireless Mic pack mounted on the side of the camera and into the XLR input, ad that worked well.

                        This mic is a perfect match for my HVX-200.
                        Mounts on the camera nicely, with furnished hardware from the camera. I found the sound quality excellent for field use, and works nicely on a boom as well. Perhaps its only weakness is the isolation mounting when on the camera. The camera mounting is nice, but if I touch the mic, the isolation rubber feels loose. This minor quibble aside, the mic is an excellent choice for the HVX series cameras, or any other camera that can supply phantom voltage and an XLR connection.

                          The AG-MC200G is a superb on-camera microphone. It is very directional and allows focusing in on conversations with minimal side pick-up.
                          I have used it primarily in wedding applications, where noice is always prevalent. It works well for reception audio and even in interview applications when boom mounted. The windscreen is very effective in outdoor environments and it is very sensitive. Use the manual camera settings for best results as automatic gain can lead to distortion.

                              I use it on my HPX300 and get great results. Small yet very good directional capabilities. I would recommend this product.

                                  I bought this for my AG-HMC150, and it is awesome. In loud environments (like a wedding), it is still possible to hear what people are saying in front of the camera. It can handle a very loud SPL. I recommend it. The only downside is it is pricey, but you get what you pay for.
