Excellent Product [...]

 

The Canon DM50 has greatly improved the sound quality of my films by providing clearer sound and giving me options for directional sound patterns. The wind screen makes an incredible difference, even in light wind, while filming outdoors.

Great little Mic, a little pricey

 

I like this microphone. The only downside is that it uses the hot shoe to power and connect. Not that it is bad, it just prevents you from using the hot shoe powered light at the same time. Otherwise, I think the simplicity and ease of use is...

An imporvement over integrated lics, but not always much.

 

Got this around the hoidays to help me better use my Canon HG-10 (whose video and options I love, but whose audio was inconsnstent). The DM-50 helps a lot towards ths end, especially in stereo mode 1 (the one that's semi-directional facing forward)....

Different modes, power through the video camera, decent stereo sound production.

Boom mic han feel incosistent, is nearly as large as the camcorders it'll be used on, can't simultaneously use with VFL-1 light.

CANON DM-50: Virtually essential.

 

Why spend any money on an external microphone if your camcorder already comes with a stereo mic built in? In fact, most are so sensitive now that it may seem like a really tough expense to justify. For most home users that especially true in light of...

Good separation of camcorder noise from recorded audio, powerful shotgun mode

Floating assembly is less confidence inspiring, still picks up some body noise from

Excellent choice for high quality video

 

This microphone works extremely well in providing high quality audio capture. By using this microphone, your video will not include ambient noise from your camcorder. I found the shotgun setting to isolate only the sounds from in front of the...
