      I am seriously considering an Azden SGM-2X… does anyone have any experience with this mic and is it any good? I will be using it to record customer interviews in a busy grocery store, on-camera. Thanks!

      Ok, I had to get the mic rush-delivered to my place and I’ve already used it and heard the results… WOW. To anyone who was considering this mic for similar applications, I was very impressed by it. The store that I was shooting in had a ton of audio nightmares, including loud singing animitronics, carrages clicking by (all the floors are a type of tile that makes a horrible noise when a cart is pushed over it), and an interview was even done directly underneith a loud cooling unit! 100% of the audio came out above my expectations and was completly clean and clear.
      In addition, the fact that it’s two mics in one is great. After filming was done, I turned it into an omni and recorded ambient noise for the edit… works like a dream!
      HIGHLY RECCOMENDED to anyone looking at it.

      Yes, I used the supplied mount… using the mic as an omni directional, the noise of my fingers on the camera is very noticable. When using the mic as a supercardiod, I had no problem. So when I need to go omni, I’ll have to think up something to kill the sound of my hand, ect…

      Thanks, Hank, I’ll put those two items on my "wishlist" for when I need them. Thanks for the info.
