Can I use my Zoom F3 to supply phantom power to the AT8022?
Asked by: Alby
Also, to preserve your F3 battery, the 8022 has a single AA to provide phantom power to itself and a single alkaline will last you astonishing 700! hours per battery, so if you use lithiums with quadruple the capacity of an alkaline, you could probably run this for a few months non-stop before needing a new battery in the mic and never bother with phantom power on your F3. Just a thought... BTW, I have an F3 and really considering this mic for ambient nature recording.

I bought this mic assuming that XY configurations were always at 90 or 120 degrees. But this seems to be 180 degrees (mics pointing completely sideways). I want to record rock and jazz concerts - is this the best mic configuration for my use?
Asked by: Eric
The Audio-Technica AT8022 uses a coincident capsule configuration in order to produce and X/Y stereo image in a small housing. This mic is great for recording live music. The key is distance and a good focal point. The X-Y technique offers little to no benefit if you're too close to the source. Experiment different distances; and this all varies from venue to venue.

I would like to us this on my camcorder or cannon 5d would I need Audio-Technica - AT8415 Universal Shock Mount and what else to form a hot shoe mount?Thanks Phylyp Wagner
Asked by: Anonymous
I will add that although it's not shown in the picture, the included mic mount comes with a hot shoe adapter. So you can use this mic on your camera with just what is included in the box. I have done this on a tripod when not zooming in and out and it works fine. That said it's just an adapter, not a shock mount, so depending on your use, you may want to buy one of the mounts suggested by others.
