Standard Mic that comes with LS300

Any idea of the specs or model number of the standard mic that comes with the LS300?

Can't seem to find anything in the documentation

Thanks

That's a good question. I'll ask my contacts at JVC America.

Would really appreciate that. Spent 2 hrs checking online pdf adverts but no one says anything about the mic!

Re: Standard Mic that comes with LS300

I understand completely. It's a common issue. You can get nearly every spec you want in the video / imaging area, but when it comes to audio, usually it just says "mic included." I hope to get a response from JVC today.

Not sure if you own the camera but if you where planning to buy it I already can tell you the stock shotgun mike is not so good and the camera internal audio is even worse, I replaced the stock mike with my audio technica at897 which sounds a lot better.

Re: Standard Mic that comes with LS300

@Noa just got the camera today. Don't plan on using the Mic, but I would like to know specs to decide it's faith!

I wonder if it's even produced by JVC there is no logo or mark on it

I have AT875 and I plan on using that one for the time being.

Internal cam mic.... I've seen 1 review where they said it was good.... I bet no one believes that!

I'm sure other ls300 owners will chime in to say that the internal mike and the shotgun mike are not good, I hear a clear difference in quality when I connect my at897. The stock mike might be a mike specifically made for this camera and which cannot be bought separately.

Re: Standard Mic that comes with LS300

Since they mention the mic in the ads, least is to write a line or 2 of specs. most probably it's a very wide cardioid

Looks like we've had a previous discussion about this topic:

Re: Standard Mic that comes with LS300

I can find plenty of online links that sell this mic, but I can't find anything with solid info on the specs.

Not even JVC's own product page. Well, you had asked for a model number so at least we were able to find *that* out (and as it turns out, that info was here all along).

If *you* find out anything about the specs, please be sure to share them with us!

Re: Standard Mic that comes with LS300

Well, there's this:

BLK Audiovisual LTD | | JVC QAN0067-003

Click the "specifications" tab... Imp., freq. range, sensitivity... sparse, but something.
