Shure VP83 reviews

VP83 LensHopper Shotgun Mic with Fur Windjammer Windscreen Kit is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Shure VP83 is perfect for my use The VP83 fits nicely on my Panasonic HDC-HS700 camcorder, leaving both the ZOOM lever and photo button accessible. It uses one AA size battery and, with an Alkaline battery, has 130 hrs life. It has a low battery indicator. The battery is very easy to install or replace. It has audio gains of +20 db, 0 and -10 db and power on, hi pass filter and power off. It is rugged and compact. It seems ideal for journalists or anyone that want to travel light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Build Quality is fantastic So far Im impressed with this little mic. I need something small to fit on top of my A6300 I have a nice Rode mic but the thing looks absolutely ridiculous. The size is perfect for the camera and the sound is pretty good for its size. I have also tested the mic with the dead cat. It does a nice job blocking the wind

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shure For The Win I use this on my Sony A7S. I've always been a fan of Shure and this one doesn't disappoint

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No opportunity to use it yet. When it was received , it was tried on a Canon 7D mark ii and it seems to work very well. I have had no opportunity to use it due to rain and other compromises. I am sure it will perform better than expected and much better than the internal microphone.
