    Comments about Canon Canon DM-50 Directional Stereo Microphone:

    I purchased the microphone to perform interviews of family members. The sound quality (both tone and lack of extra noise) is much better than the built in microphone. Set to directional, the microphone still managed to pick-up some tape noise from the HV20 but much more limited than that captured by the built in microphone.

    It's a solid item for enhancing the sound quality of home videos and performing interviews.

    Don't expect the world from it. It's an entry level microphone.

    Comments about Canon Canon DM-50 Directional Stereo Microphone:

    This microphone works extremely well in providing high quality audio capture. By using this microphone, your video will not include ambient noise from your camcorder.

    I found the shotgun setting to isolate only the sounds from in front of the camcorder, which is great if you're outside and there's a lot of other voices/sounds in the background. The other setting allows you to capture all external sounds.

    Overall, the stereo quality is very high and I would recommend making this investment!
