Decent starter microphone for video/DSLR recording
Posted by: ARCO from: Houston, TX on
I went with this Insignia model in the hopes that it would be comparable to the RODE Videomic but for a cheaper price, and I think it serves the purpose well enough. The high-pass filter helps with background noise, the build seems sturdy enough, and the shock mount works well against vibration. The only issue I could find is what seems to be a limited effective range.The mic range seems to drop off much closer than expected, especially outdoors, but overall still a good way to get better sound than a built-in mic.

Good value for basic features
Posted by: TomL from: on
This unit provides decent isolation from camera related noise such as operating the camera. You will need a flash mount to connect the microphone to the camera. I have used a camera brace The sound focus is on the wider end of shotgun pattern so it will not provide great isolation at distance. For more typical camera to subject distances, the focus is solid.

Should have read reviews
Posted by: fbicking from: on
Simple fact is this is just not a good mic. Maybe I am just wanting to much for the price. My biggest problem is it corrects way to much noise from the sides. Not how a shotgun mic should work.

Honestly I was not impressed with this. The quality didn't seem any different than the onboard microphone.

I was looking for a microphone to attach to my note 5 as I use that to make my youtube videos. This mic connects via the 3.5 audio port and when in video or recording mode, picks up all the sound beautifully. Its clear, crisp, and no choppiness.

You get what you pay for

Does what it is is supposed to do. Not very well made. It is better than the built in factory mic on the camera. I could see it breaking easily...

The unit is likely light and very easy to set up. "Do not undo the rubber bands"

I bought this product about 3 months ago figuring that it would work for my camera, but the aux side of the cord did not fit (it was to big) so I couldn't use it.

Does not have its own stand

Not useful at all as a stand alone microphone. I had to return it.
