    AT8035 Line + Gradient Condenser Microphone 5 5 1 1
    Good for isolating natural sound In addition to handheld and boom mounted application for ENG and Video Productions, this camera performs well as an on-camera mounted microphone. With its narrow pick-up angle and when camera mounted, isolating and picking-up natural (nat) sound is as simple as pointing the camera to your subject or sound source. November 28, 2011

    Difference between at835b and at8035b

    I was wondering what was the difference between the at835b and the at8035b? I already have an at835b and have thought about buying another off of ebay and strapping the two together to achieve a stereo setup, but how much different would an at8035b be? I can buy a brand new 8035b off of B&H for not much more than a used 835b off of ebay, but if I strapped an 8035b to an 835b would it sound too different? Maybe a stupid question, but I am an Audio-Technica Loyalist.

    Answer: 
    If your intent is to capture a "stereo sound", you really should not worry too much if they would sound different because that is what you are trying to achieve to begin with, i.e. making one channel sound different from the other channel. If they sound exactly the same, then your setup would sound like a two-channel-mono instead of the "stereo setup" that you want.

    Answer: 
    The AT8035 is the replacement for the AT835b. The mic specs are very similar. The main difference is ROHS compliance (European environmental requirement).

    Unable to replace battery

    I'm unable to unscrew the bottom half of the microphone. It starts to turn but snaps back to the starting position. Is there a holding pin I'm aware of?

    Answers

    Answer: 
    There is no "holding pin" for the AT8035. For Battery installation, unscrew the lower section of the microphone
    body, just below the nameplate. Insert a fresh 1.5V AA battery in the handle compartment (‚Äú+‚ÄĚ end up), then reassemble the microphone. Alkaline batteries are recommended for longest life. Remove the battery during long-term storage. If that does not resolve your issue, Service with Audio-Technica United States (ATUS) will be recommended. For information on how to obtain Service with ATUS, please visit:
