In order to have a quality audio recording shooting with a mirrorless (even a full-frame model), an external mic is a mandatory choice.

In this in-depth review (39 minutes of details and tests) we are going to analyze the stereo mic and digital recorder Zoom H5, one of the best-selling portable recorders.

This mic has been compared with the internal mic of a full-frame camera (a Sony A7III) in a silent context (for example to be used as a podcast mic) and in a noisy, outdoor setting (close to a road in a city).

The video review includes a list of products alternative to Zoom H5 and in particular to its direct competitor, the Tascam DR-40x.
