    Azden SMX-10 reviews

    SMX-10 Stereo Microphone is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 204.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound I bought this microphone to film student presentations in class. I use a Canon vixia HF200 for recording. Although the camcorder microphone is OK for general use, it behaved more like a noise collector in the classroom. To improve the sound quality of the recordings, I first tried a wireless Lavalier type microphone, but this was too much trouble. I looked on the internet for an affordable yet at least OK microphone that could be fixed to the camcorder. The Azden SMX-10 kept coming out of the search results...for the right reasons. This little thing works just fine. It is light, and provides a clear and nice stereo sound, with barely no noise from the back of the class.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome microphone, inexpensive I have a miniDV video camera that i use to make my videos. i got sick of hearing the tape motor running and other things i didnt want to hear. So i looked into buying an external mic for my next project, and i found this one. its great it increases the quality and i cant hear the motor running. another cool thing is that i cant hear stuff behind the camera, so if the camera operator shuffles his feet a little, it wont wreck the shot. it comes with a nice wind screen that helps stop the wind from wrecking the project. Overall its a great deal. if you want a nice good quality but inexpensive external mic than this is for you!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A huge leap over integrated camera mics For the price you can't beat what you get here: A reliable mic with settings and features that really give some flexibility and quality. One battery lasts 400+ hours and the stereo pickup is fairly sensitive. When there is no sound there is a whisper of white noise that is neither disturbing or distracting. This is perfect for the 5D Mark II. It mounts on with the short coil cable and doesn't get in the way, and also has vibration dampeners and does not pick up IS vibration or hands pressing buttons. I'd recommend this for concerts as it has a high pass filter switch for omitting bass frequencies as well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the price, for sure I use this microphone on my Canon T2i DSLR Camera. It is conveniently small in size, fits right on top and doesn't get in the way and captures much better audio than the on-board microphone. The main reason I am satisfied though is because the price is right. It's a cheap mic and that's nice, considering you're still improving your audio quality over the camera's internal mic. One thing I should note is I use the Magic Lantern firmware for the T2i, which disables the Automatic Gain Control (AGC). Disabling the AGC is impossible without downloading the Magic Lantern firware and I am not sure if this mic would help me if I didn't have ML installed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convenient & Reliable Stereo Mic I spent a year filming off-road drivers as they navigated rocky terrain. To call them "run and gun" would be an understatement. I went through a myriad of audio recording gear, but ultimately this little Azden (not quite a shotgun), mic worked the best. It fits snugly in my Canon 6D's hotshoe AND It can snap out of it's attachment and be held BY HAND during on-camera interviews. In fact it has better frequency response than any of my other mics, and most-importantly it records in stereo - so when you get into FinalCut you don't have to change EVERY CLIP to mono. That is a major headache when editing 200-plus clips.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from small in size but big in sound I only buy Azden microphones because i've yet to be disappointed. This microphone is small in size but big in sound! It greatly enhances sound in front of you while greatly eliminating sound behind you. I've done interviews with the subject outside, 6 feet away and alot of background noise and after injesting it into my editing software, it sounded as though the subject was right next to the camera... clear and crisp! The only reason i'm not giving it a 5 star is because it needs a led light for power. I've forgotten to shut the mic off several times. It fits my Sony FX7 camera perfectly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Mic for the money I replaced my Rode VideoMic with the Azden SMX-10 for use onthe pair of SONY HC7's I shoot with. 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. The shockmount works well enough - I appreciate the compact size ofthis mic as I work solo and use a photo backpack to carryall my gear so small, compact gear with professional qualityis crucial for my work.It's not perfect, nor a high end mic, but the Azden SMX-10is a solid mic for the price. Expertise: Professional Solo Video Journalist Problems Encountered: I wish Azden had put a right angle mic jack on this mic -the standard one that sticks straight out could damage themic jack if hit incorrectly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent improvement over camcorder mic I used this with my Canon Vixia R300 camcorder in my recent trip to Tofino, British Columbia. It was able to pick up the nice sounds of waves on the beach, gulls, etc. The windscreen did seem to have a clear effect over the camcorder's built in mic in dramatically reducing wind noise. Conversations were picked up clearly, especially noticeable back home when I replay videos on my computer. I like the fact that the left and right hand side of the mic are marked clearly, and I was able to pick up a decent stereo sound image. The build quality of this microphone is quite good. It's made in Japan, if that's important to some people. It seemed to be slightly smaller than I expected, but that's a good thing.
