I don't have any experience with those .. but I do use a Crown Sound Grabber
II for video use. I like it a lot .. considering the alternatives. My use
is to record a panel discussion at Science Fiction conventions. I put the
mic on the head table (with all the pannelists) and use a wireless
transmitter to get it back to the camcorder. MUCH better than using an
on-camera mic .. or even a shotgun. Not as good as putting individual mics
in front of each pannelists .. but there is not enough time for that.
BAD? You'll pick up "table noise" and if someone is tapping a pencil or
shuffling papers or opening a piece of candy near the mic .. you'll pick it
up as well.
