  • Overview


    The PRO 24-CM camcorder microphone is a lightweight, compact stereo condenser ideal for digital recording with high-fidelity stereo sound. Equipped with an accessory shoe and permanently attached coiled cable, the microphone features a pair of cardioid elements in an X-Y configuration to provide the spatial impact and realism of a live sound field. The microphone is designed for either battery operation or battery-free operation when used with camcorders that provide plug-in power at the mic input. Like all Audio-Technica mics, the PRO 24-CM is rugged; its built to endure the rigors of field production.

  • Q & A

    Will this work with a Canon T7i DSLR with mike input jack? Asking because the website just mentions camcorders.

    Robert

    Thank you for your inquiry. As long as the camera has a stereo 3.5 mm input it should work.

    Rick

    Hello, How do I know in general if a camera has a plug in power? I would be grateful if you can help me figure out if the following cameras have plug in power: 1)The Nikon D5100 2)The Panasonic Camcorder TM700 3) The GoPro Hero 5 Black with the official adaptor. Thank you so much

    AshrafAdel

    Thank you for your inquiry. You will need to consult your users manuals for these systems to determine if the provide plug in power.

    Is this a powered mic or an unpowered mic? I have a Canon Vixia R700 camcorder and would want to use it as an external mic, but is only compatible with the camera if it is a POWERED mic.

    Jeff

    Thank you for your inquiry. This microphone requires plug in power from the camera.

    Can I use this on a Sony HVR V1U Camcorder with adapter (3 prong to small input) Microphone input is either 48 volt phantom or that is turned off.

    Marcus

    Thank you for your inquiry. This will not work. this microphone is a stereo microphone. The xlr inputs are mono. Also the impedance is different. There is no easy way of making this work that I know of.

    AudioSolutionsManager

    Can I use this in My Dell inspiron Windows 8.1

    T.Namaya

    Thank you for your inquiry. That will depend upon a couple of things. First, your computer must have a 3.5mm microphone level input and that input must provide plug in power. You will have to check with your computer provider or the manufacturer.

    I need to replace the windscreen that came with my Pro 24 microphone (Not the Pro 24-CM) It has started to disintegrate. Can you tell me which AT windscreen is the correct one? Thank you

    Hello, I own the Pro 24-CM Microphone, I'm trying to use it with my camcorder which has a plug in power connector however the sound level that I get is much lower than the volume obtained by using the camcorder internal mic, is it neccesary to remove the battery when using it with a plug in power ? Will it cause any damage if not removed ? Does anyone have a schematic diagram for this unit ?

    Durangokid

    No, you do not need to remove the battery and will not damage the microphone.

    Just for fun... I was going to get a 1/4 female to XLR male adapter and try recording some vocal tracks on my 16 track recorder. I realize that there are better stereo mics that will do this well but I can not afford those. Please Advise, MCBlock

    Hi, is it possible to plug the Pro 24-CM Microphone on a DSLR Canon 5D Mark 3 and Sony A7s ii? Or do I need to buy a specific adaptator? Thanks.
