The AT8024 is built with a three-position adjustable input pad (-20 dB, -10 dB, 0 dB) to capture soft and very loud sound passages without distortion. A switchable low-frequency roll-off reduces pickup of undesired ambient noise, room reverberation, and mechanically coupled vibrations. The microphone is powered by a single AA battery for optimal performance with high max SPL, and features an integral camera shoe mount that attaches to DSLRs and shoe-equipped camcorders. A 39" coiled cable with a 1/8" mini-jack, AA battery, windshield, fuzzy windscreen are included.

Good product at an affordable price. Easy to use. Clear instructions.

Lets me use the viewfinder

By Gerald

I am far from an expert on the audio quality of microphones. For me the most important aspect of this microphone is that it does not interfere with my use of the viewfinder when mounted on my camera's hot shoe. Many microphones for SLR's and Mirror-less cameras hang over much to far to the rear when mounted on the hot shoe. This one does not. The sound is much better than that of any built-in mike when there is any trace of a breeze - even without the included dead cat.

Good but needlessly limited

A little expensive for what it is, especially considering you have no option to manipulate the stereo field in post, which is one of the main points of using a mid-side config. IMHO, every mid-side combo mic should output the individual channels, with internal matrixing as an option. Would've made this mic a hands-down winner. Other than that, it's a quality mic and the inclusion of a furry windscreen is appreciated.

GH-4 Mate

First off the Fuzzy Windscreen has a bad case of shedding! And tiny furry bits are tragic inside any Microphone. Decent Sound although needs to be polished in post. No headphone jack on the AT is stupid.. as many earlier DSLR's don't have Headphone jacks. I love its size. Seems that everything made today for DSLR's as far as add ons are really for Camcorders. This Mic fits a DSLR nicely and is actually light weight.. Again, good Stereo or Mono plus switching allowed between the two, on board limiters if not doing that in-camera. I had to push plus 2 DB in my GH-4 to make sure I got enough loudness in both channels. Good split.. the shoe mount yes I agree is cheap and with hours of pulling on and off will probably break. Mini Phone Plug should be gold plated but it is not. So far my AT Wireless System is best suited for my GH-4 but for sit down quick testimonials for Docs, nice Microphone. Its a wait and see on battery life.. takes a single AA. Love that too.. 4 solid stars. Thanks AT and B&H for a great deal! @JEV1A

Much better than the cheap options

I purchased this mic along with a $70 Audio Technica mic. The level of background noise from this mic is noticeably lower, however there is still some background interference, which is why I can't give this 5 stars. All in all though, it's a good mic, and I particularly like the solid build quality. More sturdy than the Rode.

Really Pleased With This Mic!

I very much enjoy this mic! I am very pleased with the audio I recorded using this mic so far! I like how easy it is to use right out of the box. The addition of a wind screen with purchase is much appreciated. I was very surprised by the range at which I was able to record. I was able to record a raven calling above some aspen trees! Very impressed! Thank you Audio Technica for such a solid product!

Sounds good

Recently acquired this for my dslr video rig. I like the form factor. It looks sexy and sounds really good. I’d say general use within 15’, is its optimal range. Solid performance for the price.

question

This mic looks like it has to be mounted in a vertical position to get proper L/R sound, correct? i.e., if I was to mount it from a left or right-facing cold shoe mount, I'd be recording an up/down stereo image, correct? Basically, can the mic be rotated in its shock mount, or no?
Asked by: Ryan
Hello to achieve a proper recording the mic must sit pointing forward and horizontal in the shoe mount. Any other configuration will not be conducive to a natural reproduction of the sound recording. Also it's extremely important to use the windscreen outside and to set proper volume recording levels in the camera. Best,MG

question

Will this record audio only and does it write to the memory that's in your camera ?
Asked by: Anonymous
This is a microphone. If your recorder has a mic in input then the sound this mic picks up will be recorded to your recorder, camera, or camcorder. I've tried a few and this one is a very capable microphone that will surpass the poor microphones normally found in cameras and camcorders. The unit uses a AA battery to handle the power needed and that is a big plus. It mic can operate as a mono shotgun mic, or a stereo mid-side mic with a built in decoder that makes mid-side work and gives a more spacious (more ambiance) sound than a mono shotgun. I own dozens of microphones and this is a worthy investment for those seeking better audio than the on board camera/camcorder mics can manage. It is well engineered and worth the investment, in my opinion. TM Soundview

question

What is a good boom pole for a mic like this?
Asked by: Sanders M.
After purchasing the AT8024, I received an email from B&H suggesting the following two boom poles each of which goes for $49: Cavision Mixed Fiber Mini Boom Pole (7.5') B&H # CASGP323 MFR # SGP323 OR Rode Micro Boompole - 3-Section Boom Pole B&H # ROMICROBOOMP MFR # MICRO BOOMPOLE . I don't have any experience with boom poles but thought I'd pass this info along to you. As the previous answer stated, you'll need an extension cable to span the length of the boom pole plus enough extra to plug into your audio recording equipment or camera.
