The Saramonic SR-PMIC2 is an ultra-compact and lightweight on-camera stereo microphone that delivers broadcast-quality sound to DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, video cameras and audio recorders. It operates without batteries or charging and captures life-like musical performances and enveloping ambient sounds. The output cable is removable which can be useful for storage, but it also means you can connect any readily available 1/8“ (3.5mm) cable if you need more length. The output jack is on the top of the PMIC2, which saves space behind the microphone.
A low-cut switch on the back of the PMIC2 eliminates deep bass sounds. Footsteps can create distracting low rumble noises that you only hear when you watch your footage on a system with a subwoofer. Low-cut will remove them, tame the hum of air conditioner noise, and make speech more intelligible — so consider using it every time you shoot.
The PMIC2 will likely be the easiest-to-use piece of gear you own. To use it you just fasten it to the shoe of your camera with its built-in mount and connect the included cable to the mic input on your camera. There is no power switch or button to worry about. You’re ready to shoot. The built-in camera shoe features a metal 1/4 20 tripod thread for more mounting options. This microphone sounds incredible, it doesn’t consume much space in your bag, it’s durably built and ready to travel.
Please note that the PMIC2 requires “Plug-In Power” to operate. The vast majority of cameras provide it, but it is omitted on a few models.
