Re: Budget shotgun mic for Alpha?

tFor video work with my A55, I picked up a shortgun mic from Monoprice. Had to use an adapter for the A55 proprietary hot shoe, but those are cheap.

Audio quality was quite acceptable - I was doing voice oinly, no music. Then again, even the Rode mics will run a bit short for hifi music....

You won't find a good quality mike much cheaper. Only drawback is the use of a 9V battery - I really prefer AA batteries that can be recharged.

As of today, the Monoprice shotgun mic goes for $39.77US. You can see it at:
