This is suitable for any Sony camera that has a Multi-Interface Show, including:
- RX100 II
I'm using this in conjunction with an HDR-CX900E camcorder and it's mounted and connoted very quicks and easily using the Multi-Interface Shoe. No extra cable connecting or fiddling! I'm using this Mic to film outdoors and in windy conditions therefore using the provided windscreen.
Works well within its limits. I bought it for use with a RX10 iii but you can't expect the microphone to have the kind of reach that the telephoto lens does! Pricey, but convenient
There are situations when the in-camera microphone is not directed properly to the subject sound and the microphone picks up extraneous sounds. The lens hood on many cameras further reduces the pickup of the source by hiding portions of the in camera mic.
Simple to use, with excellent sound capture and reproduction. Fits easily onto the camera hot shoe. Start filming and the mic takes over from the built-in. That's it! It does what its supposed to and does it well.
Purchased this for my A7 along with a Rode Video Compact Micro for my other DSLR. The stereo mic on this mic is definitely a noticeable difference between the two microphones, putting this one a step up. Also like the no-fuss connection for the multi-function shoe. . .
Picked this up to use on my A6000 for both sermon messages and wedding shoots. It it very well made and provided a much high and clearer audio quality over the onboard microphone of the camera. Highly recommend this microphone for anyone who is wanting a boost in the sound of their A6000
I recommend investing in the Sony ECM-XYST1M to use to replace the internal mic because of the improved quality of the audio and the directional pickup brings out the sound that is directly in front of you. You will appreciate this when you do interviews.
I tried it once and it works well either with Sony and Canon cameras. A lot of low frequency. Stereo.
