NikonNikon D5100 external stereo microphone : Nikon announces the launch of its first external stereo microphone, the Nikon ME-1. Designed to amplify the movie capabilities of Nikon SLR cameras, this microphone offers crisp, clear sound with no unwanted operational noise. A serious addition to any discerning videographer’s kit, it raises the quality of audio recording, enabling movies shot with a Nikon D5100 to sound as good as they look. Nikon’s commitment to versatile movie recording takes another step forward with the Nikon ME-1. Developed to capture professional-quality stereo sound across diverse situations, it further enhances the sophistication of D-Movie and offers a smart alternative to a camera’s built in microphone.

Designed with Nikon D5100 camera users in mind, the Nikon ME-1 microphone is equipped with a vibration reduction mechanism that suppresses unwanted operational noise which can come from auto focus. As a unidirectional microphone it provides precise targeted pick-up, allowing users to record exactly what they want to hear. Interference from external noise can be suppressed using the supplied windscreen and a low-cut filter switch offers extra control over low-frequency noise. The sensitivity of the Nikon microphone can also be adjusted through the camera menu to control surrounding noise or ambient sound.

Easily mounted on the camera’s hot shoe, the Nikon ME-1 is conveniently powered by the Nikon D5100 camera, while its intelligent ergonomic design enables comfortable handheld shooting. The short body allows easy access to the viewfinder and it boasts a handy cable-stop to keep the cable out of the way. For use with all Nikon SLR cameras and Nikon Coolpix cameras that have a 3.5 mm connector for external microphones, the new Nikon ME-1 microphone is supplied with a windscreen and soft case.
