I have had this microphone for about 8 months now. I originally used it on my Nikon D7000 and it is a HUGE improvement over the built in microphone. As time went on and my passion for DSLR filming grew I eventueally moved on to an external recording device (Zoom H1N, check it out!). But I sitll use this for audio in camera and as a referense track. Works very well and the design and build is solid over all. Easy to mount and remove. The moderate price point is appealing. I saw acomparison between this and a Röde microphone, and it was a close call so it delivers good audio quality. If you want better audio than the built in mic without going for a dedicated external recorder, this is a very good choice indeed!

TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY!

Comments about Nikon ME-1 Stereo Microphone:

THERE IS A WHITE NOISE THAT IS CONTINUOUS. THE NIKON 5200 INTERNAL MICROPHONE IS BETTER THAN THIS. TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY. AND AFTER I TOLD THEM ABOUT IT... SAID THAT IS JUST HOW IT IS.

Comments about Nikon ME-1 Stereo Microphone:

Bought ME-1 for use with Canon VIXIA R500 camcorder. Didn't work, no audio, had to return it. Bought a RODE stereo pro (which has 9v battery) it worked perfectly.

Cure for noisy old AF lenses

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Nikon ME-1 Stereo Microphone:

This is a welcome addition to DSLRs that have only a monophonic built-in microphone. Note that, while the ME-1 works with the Nikon 1-V1, the mounting foot won't fit the accessory shoe mount, which is too close to the eye level view finder anyway. Since the V1 has a built in stereo mic, this is not a big issue. I had found that my old 28-105 zoom lens made a lot of autofocus squeals, so moving the microphone off the camera body was very important if I want to use that old but excellent lens for video on my D800.

Good product that does what it says it will do.

By

Comments about Nikon ME-1 Stereo Microphone:

Extremely sensitive, reduces wind buffeting to an acceptable level. Picks up conversations many yards away as well as all ambient noises. It also eliminates internal mechanical sounds caused by image stabilizing function and other unwanted camera noises. Good product that does what it says it will do.

Great Mic!

By 

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about Nikon ME-1 Stereo Microphone:

I used the mic while I videoed a 3.5 hour workshop. Rather than keep the mic on the hot shoe, I used three six foot coaxial audio cables (lossless) so that I could stay as far back as possible from the speaker and still get great sound. My only complaint is that the speaker either had to hold the mic or keep it in his lap, as the screw hole diameter on the bottom of the ME-1 was larger than the one on the tripod I would otherwise have used as my stand.

Comments about Nikon ME-1 Stereo Microphone:

I have tried the microphone on a D7000 and absolutely love it for HDR movies. I am just waiting for my own to arrive in the mail this week. A must have.
