This piece is essential if you are recording any video on a DSLR - its 100 times better than the onboard mic and you will really see the difference in post shoot editing. Wide angle sound also worked really well when putting together a dance/song piece.

You got to realize a key aspect about DSLRs.

They have sh*t preamps.

Now what are preamps? Think of it like this, the audio signal from a microphone is nearly always too low for it to be picked up well. So you have these things called preamps which - you guessed it - amplifies the audio signal to usable levels.

Everything that accepts a mic to be inserted has a preamp.

DSLRs have the worst preamps, ever. My guess is all the hiss people have been complaining about is because the gain (sensitivity of the preamps) of their DSLR was set high-ish. This causes a hiss. Just buy a cheap preamp and it will be fixed.

So the hiss isn't necessarily the manufacturers fault but DSLRs.

I recorded my review with the mic, then wrote down what I heard

*muffled hello* Hiiissssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss"

That was all I could make out.

Unusable. Don't waste your time or money.

This mic is terrible on its own: There is no distinct difference between this mic. and the built-in one on my 600D however I found a way to make it better.
There was initially a lot of hissing noise; it was too high for me to have any decent useable audio in my shots so I figured maybe it needs a little help in picking up sound...
That's when I bought a cheap headphone amplifier to help boost the audio. I plugged it in and hey presto; it was awesome. The hissing noise was reduced and the pickup noise substantially improved.
I didn't have too much budget to spend so I wasnt expecting a lot however; this product together with a headphone amp. cost me £30-£35 all together and it feels like a more expensive mic.
All in all good if you want a cheap mic. that picks up fine sound but better quality if you dont mind adding an amplifier too it.

my son is studying extended diploma journalism at college and as part of the course, he is required to conduct 2 recorded interviews to pass. he uses a Canon DSLR to film but after buying this for 'better' audio, he instead decided on using the in camera microphone as it had better quality than this. if i could rate less than one star, i would. i wished it was a good mic and i could at least write a good feature it has but in all honesty, i cannot think of one.

The microphone was ok. It picked up a bit of noise and the sound quality was average but fine for non-professional use.
I needed to do post processing in Audacity (Free software) to remove noise and improve the overall sound.
If you have got a bit more money to spend i would recommend you get the ATR2100-USB, which has a lovely sound and is perfect for voice overs.

Wanted to try an external mic for use with my DSLRs (Pentax K5) and GoPro 3 and 4 cameras. It isn't perfect but the improvement over the built-in mics is significant. The foam cover isn't great at stopping wind noise but it can be replaced. Not had any issues with electrical noise.

I bought this to use with my Nikon D3200, mainly for recording talks in my church, which has a PA system. To test it I recorded half a talk using the SG108 and the other half just using the built in mic. The built in mic was slightly clearer and had more depth, so I the SG108 was a waste of money I'm afraid.
