I tend to use leveller mics for most of my work but this has performed admirably at times when it is required.

For any new or budget conscious filmmakers/youtubers this is a great alternative to the bigger brand mics on the market, that cost more than double this.It comes extremely well packaged, in fact the packaging almost feels premium. The mic has a changeable CR battery (those little watch type ones!), the manufacturer's spec say this can last <60 hours, so we'll hope and see if that is the case. But considering how easy it is to replace & how cheap these batteries are I've not got any issue with changing them when needed.All the machining & general build quality feels really nice, certainly of a much higher quality than the budget price point would suggest. If you're careful with this microphone I'm sure it'll stand the test of time. It comes with a foam wind shield, which is essential to use as being a condensor mic it's extremely susceptible to wind noise.There's a +10db switch in addition to the power on/off, this is pretty self explanatory, but when in action it also adds a 200hz Filter. Meaning unwanted plosives and bass 'noise' is filtered, perfect for voice at extra distance. The sound quality in general is great for an onbody mic. It's certainly comparable to the Rode alternatives in terms of useable quality & considering the likely applications of this mic (DSLR filmmakers) you won't be disappointed with how it sounds.All in all, it's pretty much the perfect low cost on-body microphone.

実際にYoutubeで動画をアップする際に使用しましたが、電池式である点がとても面倒でしたインジケーターがあるわけではなく、電源を入れた際につくランプの点滅時間でおおよその時間を判別するといった感じでしか電池の残量がわからず、撮影中に電池がなくなってしまう不安はありました。音自体は特に気になるところはあまりなかったので、初めて使うのには良いかもしれません。

This can mount on the hotshoe but also has a screw hole at the bottom for mounting on tripod, monopod, or selfie stick if you so please. You'll need a 3.5mm extension wire if you want to mount on those things. It comes with a CR2032 Battery, which is pretty easy to find for cheap when it runs out. Compared to the build-in microphone for my Canon T6i, the voice is definitely more pleasant and less tinny. I'm very happy with it so far.

Surprisingly good. Sound quality and directionality is excellent. Requiring a coin cell battery is the only downside.

キャノンのEOS/KissX4で屋外スポーツの動画撮影の際、カメラ本体のマイクでは風の音を拾って耳障りなことがあるので、その対策としてこの製品(CM-500)をはじめて使ってみました。この日はあまり風も強くなかった事もあり、当然風の音は拾わないで済みました。感度切り替えスイッチは最大のポジションで使ったところ、録りたい音がきっちり録れてれていたので良かったです。メーカーが示している指向特性についても、実際に録音されている内容と現場の音の関係が感覚的には大体良く表しているように思えます。録音対象がスポーツという事もあり音質などについてはそれほど拘らなかったので、価格等を考えるとまずまず満足しています。
