    Purchased this mic to use for video production and I'm very happy with it.

    Set up on a stand, aprox 4 feet from our actors, the mic picks up sound as clear as any lavalier mic. Voices are clear and very little ambient sound is picked up. Because of our shot framing, the mic picked up both actors, so it saved having two lavalier's on set, with their wires, batteries and mixer.

    Mic was used with a Zoom H4n recorder, which also supplies phantom power. The lavalier's have already fallen to the bottom of the audio gear bag, as this mic is a great replacement, and it makes it so much easier for the subject being recorded, not having to hassle with wires or transmitter packs.

    Just make sure you point it at your speaker's head, preferable their mouth, it has a fairly tight pick-up pattern.

    Seem's very well constructed. I have an Audio Technica lavalier that's twenty years old and still is holding up, so I'm expecting that this shotgun will outlive me.

    Under "con's" I listed Heavy bulky. Nothing wrong with the mic, but if you put this on a boom on a mic stand, you better use a sandbag on the stand base, or the weight of the mic can tip the stand over.

    AT 8035 Shotgun Microphone

    I used the microphone to record my son's trumpet performance. The quality was reasonably good for orinary use but not for important audition type of high quality recording.

    I used this mic to record a live musical performance. I mounted it onto of my camera and recorded with a tascam 60 dr. The quality of the recording was astounding! The mkh 416 is only marginally better. Great mic for the money!

          Comments about Audio-Technica AT8035 - Shotgun Microphone:

          I finally had a chance to get this mic and the AT 897 I also bought out into the field for testing. I mounted both on a Canon XH A1 video camera using XLR inputs without attenuation and the mic levels on the camera all the way up. I was shooting birds in trees 30 to 100 feet away and did voice testing of myself a few feet in front of the camera.

          I'm pleased it had clean sound quality and good range with pretty rich voice pickup at a few feet forward, and much more ambiance further out. While it's what I expected of a shotgun, I've listened to cheaper mics that don't have as clean of a sound pickup. Most noticeable were the evenness of sound levels across the spectrum. No booming lows (the cutoff filter was not on) or lost highs.

          It does have a back lobe that picks up as expected in a shotgun. I did notice the back lobe, but then I had the volumes max'd out. Excellent side rejection; I was impressed at how moving off axis levels dropped off considerably. Compared to the 897, the 8035 was about 20% hotter with volumes on my Canon XH A1 peaked out without attenuation on the XLR inputs.

          It's also longer than the 897 by at least 3 inches, so when mounted in the fixed camera shotgun mount, the end of the mic could be seen in the widest shots. I plan on mounting it on an accessory shoe mount above the camera. I expect it'll be well out of wide shots.

          This isn't a 416 copy, nor does it try to be. But for the price it delivered good quality sound on my tests.

          Clean and Crisp.
          Some room reverb noticable but it is minimal.

          So far, so good.

          The only down side is the length... when mounted on the camera, you can see the tip of the mic in your shot. (this is often the case with shotguns though).

            I've used this mic previously as a handheld and currently camera mounted (for field doc shooting).

            The sound quality is top notch -- clearly picks up the voices I want while reducing the noise that I don't.

            Despite its longer length I still find the best one stop shop option for my purposes -- I use it primarily with a shock mount attached to my shoe mount, though I've gotten an extra shoe mount attachment to replace the camera's (EX3) mic mount in order to use both an on board light and mic. The shock mount is really essential to this setup.

            Makes solo shooting in noisy environments problem-free.

                  We use the 8035 mic for recording audio interviews through a Zoom H4n recorder and also plug the mic directly into video cameras. It has a great range so we don't have to have the mic uncomfortably close to the subject. The audio quality is terrific.

                      I am a minor league baseball broadcaster and use the mic to capture the sounds on the field. In most stadiums, it is set up just outside the radio booth window, located behind home plate and up a level. It still captures the crack of the bat for a hit and gets great crowd noise.

                          I purchased this mic as an overhead/interview mic for corporate video use.

                          The off-axis and rear-axis rejection was very good and we obtained good clean audio tracks.

                          The microphone is well built and reasonably priced.

                                For the money, this mic is great. Exceed My Expectations!

                                I first used the mic on location while filming outdoor cooking show. The mic was able to pick up every sound detail, water boiling, chicken frying, etc. The chrisp sound detail added alot to the production.

                                At one point, someone started up a leaf blower about 75 feet away. The host of the show keept right on talking. With the mic on a boom pole about 5 feet away, he could be heard clearly over the leaf blower in the background.

                                My only complaint would be that the mic is so sensitive that don't think I will be able to use it mounted directly on my camera without some kind of shock mount. It picks up every bit of camera handling noise. So, if that's your plan you should get shock mount also.

                                I am using the mic with a carbon fiber boom pole and the Rycote S-SERIES WINDSHIELD/SUSPENSION 450 KIT.

                                  Comments about Audio-Technica AT8035 - Shotgun Microphone:

                                  This shotgun is my primary hypercardiod microphone for on location shooting and has been a reliable and sturdy unit. I purchased this one to replace the used one I had obtained 2 years older with 3 years of use on it - some frequency response but with a much improved casing. In fact it feels like the response is a little hotter then the previous unit which is nice, so I don't have to bring up to gain on the mixer.

                                    Use this product with a Canon XH-A1. The mic is really sensitive. Really extends the range for sound recording on my Canon. It is very clear.

                                            I was a bit skeptical when I was looking at this mic online because of the low price, but it performs really well! I use the mic for low/no budget comedy videos and the sound comes out with minimal hiss or white noise. Perfect kicking your low budget projects up a notch!
