                Comments about Vidpro XM-L Lavalier Condensor Microphone for Cameras and Smartphones:

                I purchased this to use when recording video recordings of lectures to be presented online. We could not afford a wireless option and took a punt on this product given it was inexpensive and had a cable length that was guaranteed to meet our needs.

                My first impression was that it produced a surprisingly good recording with minimal noise, definitely of high enough quality for our purposes.

                One caveat I have discovered is that it is, as might be expected, susceptible to interference. We are using it with a Sony camcorder, and it works wonderfully IF the camcorder is running on battery. When the power adapter is plugged into the camera, the sound recorded is entirely unusable (very high level of noise). This may or may not occur with all cameras, and if you can use the camera solely on battery, it is not a problem. I have not experimented with other options (e.g. sound recorder, or other cameras) so cannot comment on these.

                  • Q:

                    When connecting this microphone to the PC, does it consume the battery and needs to be regularly replaced? Because when it connected, i had to switch it from Off/Smartphone to 'Cameras' in order for it to work.

                    It recently showed as not working so i was wondering whether it would be a battery issue or a hardware issue

                      The Free Video app does not allow external mics. Please download another video app that can control of eternal mic. i.e FILMIC PRO.

                  • Q:

                    I have a Sony HD Video Camera (3.5mm jack input) and record videos for YouTube. What is the length of the cord? I would like to use it for recording my voice during VR video where a normal USB microphone won't be as suitable when you have to stand 1-2m back. Would this microphone be long enough in length and have the right jack input?

                    Actually I have 3 questions:
                    1) Can you plug the microphone direct to a DSLR with 3mm socket (Canon 5D Mk iii) and will it work with an external sound recorded (I have a Zoom microphone recorded with 3mm socket)?
                    2) Is it possible to order an extension cable with this mike - just in case it is needed?
                    3) If ordered today (Tuesday 23/8/16) would you be able to deliver to Kensington Melbourne (3031) by Tuesday 30th at the latest?
                    Thanks

                      A:

                      It will improve your sound - don't forget though, it's a lapel microphone. It'll pick up mostly the source where it's attached to. It'll provide much better isolation & improved frequency response - but if you're trying to pick up general sound in any area - a shotgun style microphone would be a good choice.
