Good little budget microphone with one drawback Posted by: from: on This is a decent microphone for the price. It performs well and is certainly a leap above a built in DSLR mic. The only problem I have with it is the battery. It is extremely easy to leave the unit on and if you do it will cost you a $5 battery every, single, time. Very much a pain when you go to use it the next time and are without a mic.

Easy to set up and works well Posted by: from: Atlanta on I've only used it once but it was recording something in Church. The sound quality was good but be careful and not leave the mike in the on position. There is NO indicator light and I left it on by accident and had to buy another battery.

Great microphone for a beginner Posted by: from: on This microphone works great. Have only used it for YouTube video making in a closed room but it was a huge improvement over the camera built-in microphone. Good deal for the price.

Excellent pickup with directional choice Posted by: from: on My principal reason for getting this was to avoid mechanical noise from a zoom lens on my camera. The battery-powered Bower has a switchable directional pattern which I found to be very useful when shooting a stage performance in the middle of a large outdoor crowd. Be careful when carrying while attached to a camera-- the foam windscreen could be accidentally pulled off.

decent mic for low budget filming Posted by: from: on I have been using the condenser mic to record audio while I film on my iPhone. I had to get a special adapter for it to work, but together they work fine. The microphone doesn't have as much reach as a longer microphone with a wider range. It works for in studio recording or small spaces

Good Posted by: from: on This is a great little microphone. I had purchased it for use with my youtube videos in order to get a clearer sound and it works exactly as expected. Great for the price if you aren't doing anything detailed for fancy. Good starter microphone.
