2 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: It sort of works I guess? It is semidirectional, also. Body of microphone is metal and very sturdy, feels substantial.

Cons: It has two options on the rear of the camera where one gives so-so tinny sounding audio and the other gives great sounding audio with loud clicking sounds every couple sounds. Also, zero amplification/volume options. It's overall extremely underwhelming. I would say anyone is better off spending money elsewhere on this one.
