Any omni-directional lavaliere microphone can be mounted in the Sound Shark.  This means the Sound Shark is compatible with ANY camera or digital recorder that has a jack for an external microphone.

Below is a partial list of cameras and recorders along with the types of microphone port(s) they provide.

Please contact us if your device is not listed.  We will be happy to help you determine what type of microphone you will need.

Note: Cameras & digital recorders without “Plug-in Power” or “Phantom Power” require some type of amplifier or battery box to power to the microphone.  We recommend the Beachtek DXA-MICRO PRO.
