Good balance of function and form
 
I use this mic on a Sony A1U HDV camcorder. If you know that camera you know that requires using the XLR set add-on. While this mic doesn't have the very best spec's (signal to noise, dynamic range) compared to other "professional" camera-mounting mics, the price and size make it a great fit for this camera. Audio Technica has a similarly priced stereo shotgun mic but it is several inches longer. This one already sticks out from the lens a couple inches, so that one, though better on paper v...

Stereo BUT you get three channels!
 
I have a Rode Video Mic and a Sennheiser ME66 short shotgun mic. The BP4029 (AT835ST) is better than both of these mics put together... and then some. Why? Because it can be a mono short shotgun that is VERY loud and focused for its size (just a little longer than the Rode and much shorter than the ME66/K6). It is also a narrow and wide stereo mic AND it is also an M+S matrixed mic that can be easily separated into three channels (Middle and Left and Right) in post production audio editing softw...

An excellent microphone for video!
 
I've had this microphone for about two months, and I am extremely happy with it. I am using it primarily with a Canon XA20, but I have also used it with a Sound Devices MixPre-D, and it works great with both. I have used it on-camera at one wedding, and I am very impressed at how well it can pick out a voice from across a big table during a noisey reception yet still produce a pleasing stereo image. I have used it for interviews, both on-camera and overhead, and I feel like the result is bett...

Excellent Mic
 
I use this mic with my DSLR and my Canon X10 & XF100. This mic performs extermelly well as a mono, stereo, M+S. It is compact, clear, crisp and worth every penny. I have mics twice the price and they are not as functional or clear and useful as these. Hence, I have 4 of them for all my video needs. The XLR inputs are great and work great with my X10 and XF100. With the Zoom H4N these mics work great on my DSLR.

very natural sound quality
 
The package arrived only a week after the order. I thank for very quick shipment. This microphone is designed for outdoor recording, but I use it indoor also with video camera for the concert, etc. This microphone is very natural sound quality, and surprised the quality, when recording the distance of 50-80 feets in narrow mode in piano recital. I couldn't feel the distance and so clear sound.This microphone is usable for a multi-use and look forward to outdoor indoor.

"Great stereo microphone"
 
I have purchased both the BP4029 and AT835ST stereo microphones and primarily use them for outdoor sports audio mixing environments such as baseball, football, soccer, etc. They also serve me really well for gathering ambient sounds, as I do professional audio recordings for TV and radio companies like NPR and National Geographic. You get 3 stereo modes with these microphones: L/R Narrow, L/R Wide, and M/S mode. They reproduce a really great stereo image, that is easily only found sometimes in ...

I would buy this microphone again
 
I use this microphone to record in nature and I can see through the 3 settings very well the perfect sound. Until today, I noticed no wind or noise sensitivity. For me, the switch to use is a little bit difficult(too small).

Very natural sound
 
I am amazed at the natural sound the microphone produces. The options to configure M/S and L/R stereo including narrow and wide are very convenient. The box contains o-rings which I was not aware of. Overall, I am very happy with the purchase.

Good Value
 
A good mid/side mic for the money (I just can't afford anything much more expensive). While I haven't really tried the canned L/R modes, the M/S mode is sensitive and works well when properly processed in something like Soundtrack or Logic after recording.I use this as both an on-camera and boom-mounted mic outdoors and at events, and the results have been exactly what I was hoping for.
