Mighty Little Mic

A fine quality mic - have used it effectively with my students who've needed to video record singing for college screenings. It helps focus the important sounds very nicely.

Great little mic

I have to say this mic did wonders for the audio of my camcorder. I recorded 2 hours of footage today using this and was very pleased with the sound.
