The ME-1 Stereo Microphone connects to compatible DSLR, Nikon 1 and COOLPIX cameras that have a 3.5mm Mic jack and features new innovation that significantly reduces autofocus noise from being recorded.

Equipped with a cable stop which holds the cable in place to prevent noise from being recorded with accidental contact with the cable.

Reduces vibration noise during autofocus.

Designed for use with a compatible Nikon digital camera featuring a 3.5 mm (diameter) stereo mini-pin jack.

Nikon 1 V1 Users:
The AS-N1000 Multi Accessory Port Adapter must be used to attach the ME-1 Stereo Microphone to the Nikon 1 V1 camera body.

Low-cut filter reduces wind noise and other low-frequency noise not blocked by the wind screen.

A worth while upgrade from the built in DSLR microphone! I have had this microphone for about 8 months now. I originally used it on my Nikon D7000 and it is a HUGE improvement over the built in microphone. As time went on and my passion for DSLR filming grew I eventueally moved on to an external recording device (Zoom H1N, check it out!). But I sitll use this for audio in camera and as a referense track. Works very well and the design and build is solid over all. Easy to mount and remove. The moderate price point is appealing. I saw acomparison between this and a Röde microphone, and it was a close call so it delivers good audio quality. If you want better audio than the built in mic without going for a dedicated external recorder, this is a very good choice indeed! October 6, 2012
Why is this mic listed as an accessory for the V1? This mic is incorrectly showing up as an accessory for the new V1. It is a mic which mounts in a standard sized hotshoe. But since the V1 has a proprietary accessory shoe standard shoe mounted accessories will not fit. November 17, 2011
Still hear the camera This works ok for eliminating wind noise but I can still hear the camera noises like the focus the same as if I wasn't using the mic at all. I didn't think much of it because I didn't know it was supposed to eliminate the autofocus noise until I read the other reviews on here where people are saying it does that for them. Now I'm thinking I got a piece of junk dud mic and now it's too late to exchange it because I bought it so long ago. Feeling really ripped off by Nikon. I'm also wondering now if it's my camera that's the problem. Either way I got ripped off. July 15, 2013

Does this work with the D3100?

Your website says it does. I would love to get this for my D3100 but there is only an A/V Out port, but it seems to be a 3.5mm jack, similar to the MIC port in the D5100 and D7000.

Answer: 
There's no MIC input on the D3100 and the 3.5mm jack is for AV output only. So unless Nikon has something up their sleeve it's very unlikely that this will work with the D3100.
Hopefully we can get an answer directly from Nikon on this one.

Is this mic really powered by the hot shoe?

I can't tell if this actually receives power from the hot shoe, or if it's really an unpowered dynamic microphone.

I really like the idea of a powered condenser mic that receives its power from the hot shoe, because I don't want to have to worry about yet 1 more battery (plus, with no headphone output to monitor your source, you don't know if your mic battery dies in the middle of shooting when this is paired w/Nikon cameras). However, most of the hot shoe powered mics out there also transmit audio through the "advanced hot shoe", which clearly won't work for the Nikon D7000 & P7000...

If this mic really does get power from the hot shoe (no batteries, yay!) and transmits audio through the 3.5mm cable, then that's perfect.

Thanks

Answer: 
My guess is it's powered by a standard 3v dc output by the microphone-in socket. Everything else uses this so-called 'plug-in-power', why wouldn't Nikon ?

I need to purchase an external microphone for my iphone to do better audio recordings. And since I have an ME-1 already (for my D5100), I thought I'd try connecting it to the iphone. Even though the connector fits, the iphone doesn't seem to recognize or utilize the ME-1. Has anybody else tried this?

Answer: 
I was able to find a cable which would allow me to connect the ME-1 to an iPhone (it won't work without an adapter). The good news is that the ME-1 does a great job of filtering out background noise compared to the built-in iPhone 4s microphone. Unfortunately, the audio level of the ME-1 drops off considerably as you move farther away from the subject when compared to the built-in microphone. So that's a trade-off.

Answer: 
The power does not come from the hot shoe. Like the overwhelming majority of the microphones on the market, this microphone is powered via the cable.

That being said, this microphone was specifically developed to sit on the camera, since it has technology to reduce the noise of the camera autofocusing. Also the cable is long enough to span the distance from the microphone to the camera's audio input. To move the microphone any further from the body would require the use of a patch cable.

Will it work, sure. But that wasn't it's original design. There are better solutions available.
