Works OK, but has only fair sensitivity

By SFC

from Florida

Verified Buyer

Comments about Senal MS-77 DSLR/Video Mini Shotgun Microphone Kit:

This mini-mic is compact, light, and very directional. However, the sensitivity is not that great: you must be within 3 feet of your sound source to get a decent signal.

Very good mic for the price

By Jamie

from Richmond, VA

Comments about Senal MS-77 DSLR/Video Mini Shotgun Microphone Kit:

I recently used this product for a short film, and it worked great! It's very sensitive and has a 20db setting that I love. The mic has great detail and the voices have great depth to it. It's a shotgun mic so you get less unwanted noise. Use it with my zoom h1 and have no problems. 4.5/5

Excellent sound quality!!

By Gary M

from Chesapeake , Va

Comments about Senal MS-77 DSLR/Video Mini Shotgun Microphone Kit:

It was my first time ever using a microphone, let alone a shotgun mic. It was awesome at only picking up the performance in front of me and very little of the audience which was standing right behind me in a Barns and Nobles. The compact size first alarmed me. But once again in life size does not always matter. Very glad I made this purchase.

Compact, light and travels well

By Sound guy

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Gain Boost For Weak Sound
  • Light Weight
  • sensitive mic

Cons

  • Batteries hard to find

Best Uses

  • Add To A Zoom
  • Dslr Mic

Comments about Senal MS-77 DSLR/Video Mini Shotgun Microphone Kit:

I bought this mic to use with a Zoom H2N. When I interviews at times there is background noise I'd prefer to not deal with, this shotgun mic helps dampen the ambient noise. It is a sensitive mic and picks up sounds from a distance with the gain boost settings.

Mic cable sticks out to far

By Kobuk

from Woodland, CA

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Well Made

Cons

  • Mic Cord Gets In The Way

Best Uses

  • Animal sounds

Comments about Senal MS-77 DSLR/Video Mini Shotgun Microphone Kit:

I love the microphone but the cable that comes out of the rear of the microphone needs to be attached with a 90 degree fitting just like the other end that attaches to the camera. It sticks straight out and your face hits it when looking into the camera. Should be attached with a 90 degree turn or attached somewhere else entirely. I have fixed the problem by attaching the mic onto a RRS flash ring, but this adds weight and bulk when not needed for field work.
