    Purchased especially to record a wedding.
    Absolutely excellent quality sound, and it can be set for "shotgun" or two "stereo" modes.
    Haven't got anything to compare it with, but highly recommended for serious videos.

    Very nice compact external microphone, works perfectly with my Canon HV30. It is powered by the HV30 hot shoe, so doesn't use up the accessory power output allowing use of an external light. It wouldn't work as a boom mike because it has no auxiliary power input, unless you made one up like the hot shoe. But I bought it to go on the camcorder, so not a problem. Rigid mount could allow motor noise to be transmitted but doesn't seem to be a problem; other reviews vary in their opinion. It does make it simple, robust, effective and easy to store and use.

    Have been trying to get hold of one of these since last summer, at there true price they are way too expensive. I was lucky enoughto find one on Amazon second hand. And I must say it was worth the wait. It's a very competent mic that give good results, I've added an extra fluffy wind shield to improve on it's already good wind noise prevention.
    What I really like is that it's powered from the camcorders own battery, so no battery running out when you least expect it. Also you dont forget to turn it on and end up with no sound on the tape (as I have done on one occasion).
    To conclude...for me it's near perfect, like I say apart from Canons list price

    Great works fine, main reason I got it was to stop wind sound, which it does very well and has 3 setting's as the above reviews, the only down side is the cost, it's a shame they don't make camcorders to stop wind sound
