        Comments about Panasonic MIC150 Shotgun Microphone for HMC150 & HMC40 Camcorders:

        I shoot weddings and I prefer a shotgun mic over wireless because it makes the bride and groom more comfortable. It's professional quality built well and fits perfectly with my hmc150. The sound is like night and day difference! It's so easy to use you just plug and go. I originally lost the mic holder that comes with the camera and its about a whopping [$]but thankfully There is a shock mount that comes with it that is not in the description and my problem was solved instantly!

              Fully phantom powered, which is what I was looking for. I film in the field and cannot be inconvenienced by a mic that uses batteries or has an on/off switch. My Panasonic AG-AC130A came with a Que210 mic and I returned it. It didn't fit the mic holder and it not only used batteries that were hard to install, it "ATE" them for lunch. Plus the on/off switch was not illuminated, so you had no idea when the batteries died.
              This will fit any camera with an XLR input.

                We use the microphone when filming promotional videos. We have only used it a couple of times. It takes in good sound. We are happy with it so far. We have no complaints. When we used it with a sound system, there was a slight echo, but we would not usually use it that way. We were in an auditorium, filming a church service in which the pastor was already mic'd through a sound system.

                  I use this on a HMC150 and having phantom power is nice. It is compact and picks up sound really well. The on camera mic is good for ambient sound but this Mic150 is needed for better overall recording quality. Probably worth more than it's price.

                  I can never give anything 5 stars because there's always room for improvement. But this things lives up to every prior review I've read. It's no wonder that it is designed specifically for the Panasonic HMC cameras.

                  Love this thing! Truly! It is very directional, which is what I thing a shotgun mic of this calibre should be. Yes, there is some peripheral sound that bleeds through, but any videographer will tell you that can't be avoided entirely. All in all, this thing lives up to its word. Good, clean sound, although a bit thin, but not so much as to be an issue.

                  If you mix this mic with an onboard lapel, any ENG setup will be spot on! Deffinitely think I will hang on to this baby.

                  I use this for docu dramas and short film 'indie' stuff and works great. It keeps us from having to boom a mic all the time which really saves on manpower and time.

                                    Comments about Panasonic MIC150 Shotgun Microphone for HMC150 & HMC40 Camcorders:

                                    I've beeen a radio station DJ and production director for nearly 25-years. I've worked with some of the best (and worst) equipment on the market. So when I spent less than $200 for the Panasonic MIC150 Shotgun Microphone, my expectations were not very high... but at least I'd have a mic to pick up the unidirectional audio sources I shot on video, to augment my wireless and hand held mics. I WAS SO PLEASANTLY SURPRIZED! Not only does the 150 deliver far more audio quality than I expected... it even outperforms mics for which I've paid much more. Particularly if you've purchased the Panasonic HMC150 or HMC40 video camera, (this mic was designed for those cameras)you'll get your money's worth and then some.
