"love it...worth it!...Nice Entry Level Shotgun...The microphone itself is simple to use and I record audio with it in conjunction with my H4N Zoom Recorder.Having used other shotgun microphones in my career, I can assure you that this is not the best microphone on the market, but for $ it will exceed your expectations for a starter microphone."See more
B&H # AUAT875R MFR # AT875R
The high-performance microphone features smooth, natural-sounding on-axis audio quality and excellent off-axis rejection of sound arriving from the sides and rear of the mic. The AT875R operates on 11 to 52V phantom power, and has a standard XLR output connector and is compatible with some of the smaller professional cameras.
"Love IT!...Nice Mic...Fantastic, affordable entry level mic....Now I am using the Tascam DR 100 II with the AT 875, and it is a diferent ball game.The AT 875 is very senitive and enables me to use much less gain on the recorders, making for a much cleaner recording, now I only need a gain of 3-4 on a 1-10 scale.It is a good mic for booming because of the sensitivity and because it is so light."See more
B&H # RONTG1 MFR # NTG1
The supercardioid polar pattern and line-plus-gradient acoustic design effectively minimize audio and noise at the off-axis (sides) of the microphone, while the front of the capsule accurately reproduces incoming audio signal. The result is greater intelligibility and signal-to-noise ratio while using the NTG1 in noisy environments.
The NTG1 is powered with an external +48V phantom power source; the output is a standard 3-pin XLR male connector.
The microphone features a rugged, all metal, lightweight enclosure that is ideal for camera mounting yet durable enough to withstand the rigors of heavy road use. The Rode NTG1 is packaged with a microphone stand mount and windscreen.
"Love it...Nice mic...Great Entry Level Mic...The only reason I took a star off was the mic clip is useless - totally does not fit over the mic housing (maybe the XLR, but I don't want to have a conector as my only support point) But I have other mic clips, so not a big problem."See more
B&H # RONTG2 MFR # NTG2
The supercardioid polar pattern and line-plus-gradient acoustic design effectively minimize audio and noise at the off-axis (sides) of the microphone, while the front of the capsule accurately reproduces incoming audio signal. The result is greater intelligibility and signal-to-noise ratio when using the NTG2 in noisy environments.
The NTG2 is powered with an internal 1.5V AA battery or an external +48V phantom power source. The output is a standard 3-pin XLR male connector.
The microphone features a rugged, all metal, lightweight enclosure that is ideal for camera mounting, yet durable enough to withstand the rigors of heavy road use. The Rode NTG2 is packaged with a microphone stand mount and windscreen.
"Pro use...5 stars...Great Entry Level Shotgun Mic...I bought this mic on good reviews ....Currently I'm using the mic for interviews and pieces to camera by the journalists at my work.I've found that this mic works very well when it's close to the subject who is speaking at a good volume.I use the mic with a Zoom H4n Recorder, which unfortunately doesn't provide it enough juice to perform at its best."See more
B&H # BLYETIPL MFR # YETI PLATINUM
"Love it!...Good Mic...For an entry level mic for the use of podcasting and audio books this is a great mic....When I am recording it still works great, but I wonder how this would function if I were to do something (like a podcast) that I wasn't necessarily going to record."See more
B&H # JVQAN3 MFR # QAN0067-003
"Good choice...Works well....Entry level...The QAN0067-003 Microphone for ProHD/4KCAM by JVC greatly minimized the background and ambient noise; and focused on the host and interview featured guest perfectly!!"See more
B&H # ROVIDEOMICRO MFR # VIDEOMICRO
The VideoMicro reduces distracting peripheral sound and focuses on the audio in front of the camera. The microphone body is made from aluminum, giving it a high level of RF rejection, and is finished in a ceramic anti-glare black coating. The mic is powered by camera plug-in power (min. 3V) so no battery is required.
In addition, the VideoMicro includes a Lyre shoe-mount that minimizes unwanted vibrations, handling, and cable-borne noises, and a WS9 synthetic furry windshield with a foam inner cell, designed for use in outdoor situations where wind and environmental noise can inhibit recordings. A 1/8" TRS patch cable is also included.
"love it!...Good mic...I will say I shoot on a sony so it is very good internal pre- amps so if you shoot Canon or Nikon I would stick with the Video Mic Pro or something that is powered so you can turn the internal pre amps down....Also playback should probably be done with headphones as it will try playing through the headphone jack, which will require removal of mic or possibly a change in settings ( I did not try that)."See more
B&H # POOLM10 MFR # OLM-10
"Not bad...Good Mic...I think this mic works very well for my application, I am not looking for the absolute best sound quality nor am I a sound expert, I just want to capture their voices from a distance without the subject having to yell for the standard mic to pick up their voice....I bought the OLM-10 Omnidirectional Lavalier Microphone to use with my Canon video camera because Canon always includes an 1/8 mic input jack which provides better sound than the built in mic when interviewing someone."See more
B&H # BLPQUSBMG MFR # SNOWBALL - NEON GREEN
"Love It...It's Ok...I purchased this microphone because I am a Dj at an Internet Rock/Metal station.I wanted a microphone that is decent but that is also not too expensive,after hearing and reading so many great reviews about the snowball I decided to purchase one and I am very happy with it.It was very easy to setup it does not take up alot of space is quite attractive and I have not had any problems whatsoever with it....HI, When I order this Mic, I accedently ordered 2 instead of one, but after I tried it out I decided, I liked it so much that I would send the extra one to my sister who likes to sing."See more

The MKE 400 offers a simple solution to achieving high quality audio and is well suited for consumer and professional video applications.
"Good mic...Great Mic...My only problem is that I forget to turn it off and wear down the battery or I forget to turn it on and when it'sn't on and plugged into the mic jack on the camera---no sound is recorded....It is also not as good as the microphones on my Canon S100 that I would trust in any video recording session (I have Windcutter muffs stuck to those miss for about a 75% improvement)."See more
B&H # AZSMX10 MFR # SMX-10
"Good Mic...Great mic...I used this for two back-to-back jobs - a business conference and a wedding - on the day after I received it and was happy with the results....The Rode VideoMic wasjust too big to work with on these small cameras and theSMX-10 has surprised me with the audio quality that can comefrom the mic when properly set up.It may not have all the glitz and glam of other mics, but itdoes a good job when mounted on the camera and I also use itfor voice overs and haven't been disappointed."See more
