Microphone for Nikon Camera
Nikon is a major Japanese company that specialises in producing optics and imaging products such as cameras, video recorders and microscopes. These are products that often require additional accessories and a peripheral microphone for Nikon camera is used to improve the range and sound quality of a camera's built in microphone. Camera microphones can be wired or wireless and there are advantages to using either. Your choice will depend on what type of filming you are doing.
ME-1 Microphone camera mounted Nikon microphone
The Nikon ME-1 microphone is a unidirectional dedicated stereo microphone that is designed to expand the sound recording abilities of the Nikon cameras it is compatible with.
This microphone for Nikon cameras suppresses unwanted noise that occurs during operation of the camera such as the noise made by autofocus or generally just handling the camera. The microphone includes a windscreen and low cut filter switch to stop the wind and other low frequency sounds being captured on your video recording.
Nikon has made this camera microphone for use with Nikon DSLR cameras so it has a short body to make it comfortable and to provide access to the viewfinder. It is also water resistant to withstand all weather conditions and environments when shooting.
The ME-1 Nikon camera microphone is powered by the camera's power source and uses a 3.5mm connector for external camera microphones.
Nikon wireless camera microphone
The Nikon ME-W1 wireless camera microphone enables you to capture sound in your video footage in stereo from a distance of up to 50 metres away from the camera.
This Nikon wireless camera microphone is compatible with any digital camera that has a microphone connector and will capture sound direct from the source for up to three hours of filming.
It can be used to record presentations, street interviews, video blogs and produces professional quality audio. Sound is captured by the microphone and the receiver simultaneously so the Nikon ME-W1 is particularly good for two-way conversations between the camera operator and the subject of an interview.
