Senal MS-66 overview

  • 1Description

The MS-66-K DSLR/Video Mini Shotgun Microphone Kit from Senal is a complete solution for recording audio directly to your DSLR or camcorder. With several qualities of a professional shotgun mic packed into a pen-sized lightweight design, it allows for clear dialog capture without compromising your compact setup or getting in the way of your shot.

The microphone itself has a hypercardioid polar pattern that allows it to clearly pick up subjects directly in front of it while strongly rejecting unwanted off-axis sound. Designed for the clear capture of dialog, the MS-66-K is optimized for applications such as capturing interviews both in and outdoors. Its small, 6-inch frame stays out of frame when mounted to your DSLR, assuring your mic will never be in your shot, even with most wide-angle lenses.

The MS-66-K has an SPL handling of up to 124dB, allowing it be used with ease on louder sources. For quieter or more subtle subjects, the mic has a 3-stage gain control, allowing you to select between 0, 10, or 20dB of additional gain, therefore bypassing the notoriously noisy preamps aboard many cameras and camcorders. The mic has a partially coiled 7-inch cable that terminates in a stereo 3.5mm connector. Thanks to the included shockmount, you can attach the MS-66-K to a boompole as well as a camera. The rugged shockmount slides effortlessly onto the base of the microphone for a sturdy hold. Its slim profile allows fast and easy access to all controls and foam windscreen, and can be tilted, allowing you to adjust the angle of the mic as needed. The included windscreen helps reduce wind noise while in use. The kit includes a limited 10-year warranty

The MS-66-K's hypercardioid polar pattern is optimized to focus on the subject in front of the microphone and reject off-axis sound, limiting distractions from your video recording
High SPL handling and level boost adjustments allow for reliable audio capture from both loud and quiet sources
The included tiltable shockmount with shoe-mount adapter isolates the microphone from vibrations in your camera or boompole to minimize handling noise
The shoe-mount adapter with a 1/4"-20 threaded socket lets you mount the MS-66-K on a camera or boompole
The 3.5mm audio connection plugs into your DSLR or camcorder's audio input jack to record live audio directly into your camera

    Senal MS-66 reviews

    MS-66-K DSLR/Video Mini Shotgun Microphone Kit is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Blah IF i had known it was as thin as a bic pen i wouldn't have picked it up.That being said the sound is an improvement over on board camera sound and it is way better than those $ @ mics i bought so its not a total waste of money.I would not use it in a professional setting. It does not isolate sound in front as good as i hoped.The battery compartment sucks but the batteries are cheap and last a while.Mine cane without batteries and i needed it the day i got it so i had to take a detour to get batteries.You get wgat you pay for. If you have $ only then this is what you get but if you are planning on doing professional work save your money and get something better.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convinient and practical I use the MS-66-K to record interviews and also I use it, with a cable extension, as a shotgun in mike pole. It works really well and the quality of the sound is aceptable. It is not a professional mike, but it does the job. It is a cheaper alternative to more expensive mikes and the sound quality is almost the same. The two batteries, they are not AA or AAA battery, but round-watch type batteries are reliable and they keep the mike working for many hours. I recommend to buy extra batteries online, they are cheap and you can buy them by dozens so you have enough spare batteries for all your recording sessions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing qualityin a small package... Using this microphone on an iPad for recording various types of sound in many difficult situation. While I do not always have the ability to get close to the source of the sound, I find that the MS-66-K works really well at bringing in the sound. Directionality is excellent and it had become my go-to microphone. The shock mount is very effective at elimination unwanted sound. I could not be more pleased and the price point was amazing. But then B&H is the place to shop if you want special pricing and quality, not to mention an inventory that is second to none.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Slightly Better Audio than Camera Mic. Before purchasing any gear, I always do a fair bit of research to see what others are saying about it. Unfortunately, I couldn't find many reviews or examples of this microphone, but due to it being on sale, I decided to take the risk and purchase it anyways. I have concluded that this microphone is an OK, inexpensive option for someone who is just starting out in shooting video on DSLRs. Upon receiving the Senal MS-66, I was instantly surprised by how thin it was. Without the windscreen, it is slightly thicker than your average pen, and because of this it is powered by button cell batteries, which is slightly disappointing as they are not as common to find such as 9V or AA batteries. The construction isn't the greatest either, as it feels like cheap plastic. I literally thought I was going to break the latch off the battery cover as I tried for several minutes to open it. Luckily Senal claims 100 hour battery life, which far surpasses other DSLR shotgun microphones that are available like ones Rode or Shure make. One benefit of the weight is that if you do a lot of handheld shooting, this mic will barely add any additional weight to your camera. Now for the most important question, how does it sound? A friend and I conducted a test for ourselves and test four microphones: Senal MS-66, Rode VideoMic Pro, Shure VP83F LensHopper, and the 5D MKIII internal microphone. Without getting into too much detail, we found that the Rode and Shure completely outperformed the Senal, which wasn't a shock to us, as the Rode and Shure are much larger, better constructed, and 2-3x the price of the Senal. What was still disappointing, is that the Senal was only slightly better than the 5D's audio. Although the audio was slightly cleaner and more directional when using the Senal, we found that it still picked up a fair amount of noise around the room and no matter how much we adjusted settings there was a slight hissing. In conclusion, the Senal MS-66 is a cheap solution for anyone looking to get slightly better audio than that of a camera's internal microphone. I didn't expect for the Senal to perform in the same league as the Rode or Shure, however I still can't help but be disappointed by the construction and subpar results.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product This is a very good product and the sound is excellent. Only wish it had stereo capabilities but for the money that would be too much to expect. I'll use it with a fuzzy wind cover.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from decent sound for the money I bought this to improve my DSLR video, but have tried it with my phone and greatly improved the sound recorded
    Date published: 2015-02-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from small and reliable! It is a microphone really very good considering price and size. I bought this item for use with a DSLR (the best use for it) sony A7 and it worked perfectly. It comes with two small batteries which are required to function properly, and has a DBs regulator that can be 0dB, 10dB or 20dB, each with a different capture gain. It works well for close recording distances (around 2 meters from the sound source).

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Battery life Purchased two of this. On the wedding morning turned them on, and in several hours both microphones died, no audio from wedding ceremony in two cameras, the mics was on ronin cameras and I noticed it too late. Thank god I have some backup from groom & officiant. There is a chance that it came with old batteries in the box though, so make sure to buy some extra batteries, it takes 2.
