Audio-Technica AT8024 overview

  • 1Description

For capturing audio the AT8024 Stereo/Mono Camera-Mount Microphone by Audio Technica can be used in several environments, on DSLR and video cameras, for applications such as weddings, conferences, sports events, and more. It features a selectable line-cardioid mono, and internally matrixed mid-side stereo mode and provides the flexibility to focus the recording on a single sound source, or to widen the field for more sonic realism. The AT8024 can deliver much improved audio than the supplied camera's internal microphone.

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.

    Audio-Technica AT8024 reviews

    AT8024 Stereo/Mono Camera-Mount Microphone is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AT 8024 mic very decent I read reviews of many mics before settling on this audio-technica and was a bit apprehensive about the sound quality. It goes without saying that any external mic sounds better than an in-camera mic, but still, I was pleasantly surprised at the sound quality. I use it in combination with a Sony a6500 and I find the sound sufficiently rich with good rendition of bass and overall quality. I could compare it with an audio -technica shotgun AT835B and with a RODE SVM mic and found it of near similar quality. The sound is richer than that of a zoom H1 going through the camera. I am pleased overall, but I am an amateur/semi-pro videographer and did not do any technical comparisons.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good features to this shotgun mic! I've just begun using it, but like its being more compact than my Rode NTG2 mic that sticks out farther and takes up more room atop my Canon camcorder. I also love the fact, unlike most of other competitive products, it actually has a green light to show the battery is good, PLUS an off-on switch, AND an option for stereo. So far it has worked like a champ. I'm beginning to use it more than my broadcast quality Rode NTG2. The only negative thing I can think of so far is the connecting cable is built in, so if something were to go wrong with it, after the warranty is up, would I be out of luck and just get a Sorry, Charlie from the manufacturer? On the other hand, my NTG2 has had two out of three cables go bad, and I just ordered another one, but at least the big liability in cost of the shotgun mic is not at risk.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I bought this! I needed an on-camera mic for my GH4 on a run-n-gun documentary. I went with this mic because of previous success with their 875R short shotgun. The on-camera 8024 mic worked great in both stereo and the more directional mono position. I was concerned I might need more gain on the mic but its 0db setting was plenty powerful, and with the GH4 turned down to -12db. This is an excellent product and I will continue to look at AT products for their performance and value.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to my GH4 As a GH4 shooter, I don't know how I did without this. It's so easy to use and if the sound gets too loud there is a switch to pad the volume down two levels. With the GH4 I shoot with the camera audio set as low as it goes and with loud sound I'm still peaking. With the Audio-Technica switch I'm not peaking. And the shotgun setting is fairly decent. I also have the Zoom H6 which works great too, but it's very cumbersome for run-n-gun shooting. I am glad the B&H salesman suggested this unit. Thanks B&H.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far a great mike for travel! I got the AT8024 just before going on a trip where I am shooting surfing scenes. Lots of wind, motion, etc. and the mike is doing a great job. Picks up ambient sounds like birds in early morning, rain falling, and is excellent with voices as well. Really easy to use, very portable and lightweight, and only uses one AA battery. Great mike for travel and I'll see how it does over time.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stereo & Mono makes life Precise & Easy I dont know why I see Rode with so many functional and gripping disabilities is still so famous and widely in use- when this thing is available. It's been 6 months I have not changed the mic's 1 AA battery and still working good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent External Microphone I use this with my Canon camcorder. Way better than then the internal microphone. Very easy to use. I like the selectable Stereo and mono option.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mic! I've used Rode Mics before and the quality of this mic matches up and has a few unique features in this price range. I do a lot with music so I love the stereo feature. The AA battery is more preferential for me than a 9v, so that's another great feature. All in all, I've been really pleased with this mic.
