Very solid micro! Great price / performance ratio

I bought this microphone for my DSLR camera in order to have with my videos better sound. I use it in principle for all sound sources, for language, music or noise.

As a first positive feature, I need to notice the value of the microphone. It is completely made of aluminum and has a comfortable weight, not too heavy and thus perfect for a DSLR camera. In the package is also the windscreen for the micro, a mini-jack cable (which is also the power supply of the microphone is guaranteed) and the microphone spider with a flash shoe for plugging onto the camera.

Practically at the microphone spider is that the Blitzschuh not snaps, but with a plastic nut can be tightened and thus annoying fumbling at the camera when the microphone is solved.
In addition, there is a short manual, but you are not absolutely necessary, as the mounting of the microphone is explained by itself.
The windscreen also protects you from wind noise and looks cool. The microphone sounds very clear and takes very specific sounds. The self-noise is only audible, if the sound is strongly normalized and with correct leveling it is almost inaudible. Discussions in front of the camera are thus clearly emphasized from the crowd and are clear and comprehensible even in loud ambient noises.

In principle, there is hardly anything wrong with this microphone. The microphone is somewhat difficult to get into the spider; But once it is mounted, the spider holds the microphone genuinely bomb-proof. All movement sounds are balanced without cracking or booming.
The red mini-cable is spirally shaped to avoid hanging around in the way. This works so far synonymous quite well, but with my camera is the cable is almost a little too long, so it must still be around the flash shoe around, so as not to accidentally disconnect the cable from the microphone.
Unfortunately you can not adjust the gain directly at the microphone, so you have to determine directly at the camera the input volume, but of course, a headphone output at the camera very cheap.

Tip: If you do not have a headphone output should simply make a few test recordings and adjust the volume using this.

The microphone fully fulfills its purpose. It is small and relatively light, easy to assemble and has a practical draft shield on board. The cable is at the same time audio and power cables and is shaped spirally in order not to hang in the way. For small videos, such as "Behind The Scenes" material, interviews or just impressions, the microphone is ideal. For larger filmproduktionen I would advise against it, since the microphone can be mounted only on the camera.

For this price and the quality of the microphone an absolute purchase recommendation for hobbyists!
