    Hi
    You may wish to be aware that there have been reports of noise interference on the Sema microphone caused by the IS system of the O- MD
    Let us know how you get on with it ?
    Regards
    Rob

    You're right about the noise. With the small stereo mic plugged straight into the hotshoe adapter, it picks up lots of camera hum and sounds worse than the camera's onboard mic.

    I use a longer audio cable and use the small mic like a lavalier, or set it on a table in front of my subject but just off camera. I'm also using a shotgun mic mounted on a bracket, which works great for walking around.
