Azden Directional Shotgun Microphone for $69 (after rebate + free shipping)
Posted By: seventysixersfan, 04-30-2013, 09:58 AM

Adorama offers the Azden Stereo Directional Video Shotgun Microphone, model no. SMX-20, for $69, via the directions below, with free shipping. Deal ends May 31.

To get this deal:
  1. View the Azden Stereo Directional Video Shotgun Microphone for $119 at Adorama: Azden SMX-20 DSLR Stereo Directional Shotgun Microphone SMX-20
  2. apply coupon code "S0531131" to cut it to $79
  3. redeem the $10 mail-in rebate for a net price of $69

I don't have any experience with external stereo mics for DSLRs, but I think this might be a cheap one that is worth a look if you don't want to spend more than $70 for one. I am very tempted to get it for my K-01. It is compact, has a shock mount, and apparently needs no batteries because it draws "plug-in" power from the camera.

Online reviews are definitely mixed. But if you're not a professional, it MAY be an improvement over the internal microphone for video capture; even the jury is out on that, but I have to hope/believe/assume that an external mike that usually sells for $119 would offer better performance than the built-in mic.

BTW, there have been some PF users who have used the earlier model, Azden SMX-10. I think the SMX-20 is pretty much the same but a bit smaller. See spec comparison here:

For PF user comments of the earlier model SMX-10, see:
