      I use this mic with my Nikon D800. It is a simple and easy device to use. Also records good audio. If you record in a noisy situation, it is okay because you do not hear auto focusing noise of the lens in the recorded video. But when I shoot videos in quiet places, the mic picks up noise from every single auto focusing movement of the lens which is not pleasant to the viewers later. Now in a still situation, I set the camera on a tripod and set the lens on manual focus. For example, we had a Christmas program in our church last month. Singers and the violinist came out to the same spot to perform. So I set my camera on a tripod and set the lens on manual focus. I did not touch the camera or the lens until the program finished. Later when I replayed it, the picture and sound were excellent. Good video! But most of the cases I cannot use the manual focus option of the lens when shooting videos. So you need to think carefully what you are going to do with this mic. I would recommend this mic to people with caution. I would greatly appreciate it if someone could post a solution to this problem of noise picking from auto focusing lens.

      Great Microphone and all its features. However I failed to check for Mic input(s) on my D3100 and found out it was an AV output. Maybe B&H can display notice upon checkout regarding usage. Hope to use one day, perhaps with another camera.

          High quality stereo microphone with low frequency noise switch and vibration isolation mount which eliminates auto-focus and other camera noise heard when only the camera's built-in microphone is used.

              On a Nikon 5300 this will work very well if
              you keep in mind that the camera has a built in volume
              control. If not adjust it will make whoosing sound, but after
              adjusting it works fine. 2 Techs from Nikon were not aware
              that the control was on the camera, not the mic.

              PS it does not mention this in either the Nikon instruction booklet
              for either the camera or mic.

                Comments about Nikon ME-1 Stereo Microphone:

                I know almost nothing about audio when it comes to filming with my DSLR. I bought this because I'm planning to film some interviews, and I want them to appear and sound more professional than the camera's mic. My Nikon D5300 audio settings were set too high by default. When plugged in with the default settings, you get a low hiss with the audio. I googled it and found that others had the same problem. The solution is to set the audio settings to Manual, then lower the default level. My camera's default audio level was set on 15. I started with a very low setting, and worked my way back up until I found the level that produced enough volume, but did not produce the hiss. I found that the sweet spot is around 8 on my Nikon D5300.

                With that troubleshooting behind me, I'm pretty satisfied with the mic. For the money, you're getting a good mic. Like I said, I know nothing about audio other than what I want to achieve. I'm sure that in order to get better sound quality, I would have to spend more money.

                              Comments about Nikon ME-1 Stereo Microphone:

                              The Nikon ME-1 Stereo Microphone creates a huge improvement over the in-camera microphone on my Nikon D4. I was shocked when I hooked up my videos with music to external speakers or listened with headphones. The bass blew me away. I recorded a friend singing and playing the guitar, and it was like being there in person. Voice tone and resonance were there. I could hear the strings vibrate and his fingers move up and down the strings. If sound matters, this is one accessory to not be without.
