    question

    Will this work on an iphone?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Unfortunately the TM-2X is not directly compatible with an iPhone or similar smartphone due to the different connection necessary for the phone. This mic is designed to connect to the dedicated mic input of a DSLR or camcorder.

    question

    Will this work with the Panasonic GH-4?
    Asked by: Mark
    Sure, it will work, and better then the camera's internal mic. But there are probably better ways to spend your money if you are looking for a broad general purpose on-camera mic---like a shotgun---the shotgun is much more directional and typically better more on camera use. The TM - 2x is going to be at its best closer to the audio source, or even picking up ambient sound---I would not buy this for my main on-camera mic.
