The Tascam TM-2X attached to the SmallRig Cold Shoe Handle 2094 on Z 9

I’ve been on a long time search for what I considered the perfect ambient sound mic. I’ve got a drawer full and finally I found it. The Tascam TM-2X is a small, stereo, killer little mic for only, hope you’re sitting down, $99! It has a shock mount, runs off camera power, and slips into the hot shoe of a camera. The mics swivel (see gallery above) and comes with a deadcat. The Tascam TM-2X comes with an arm placing the mic in front of the camera body (so sounds from the camera are hidden) but it’s plastic. I wanted something a little more substantial so purchased the The SmallRig Cold Shoe Handle 2094 (new version). I am not using this as a handle, just a repl for arm that comes with the Tascam TM-2X. I’m using the Tascam TM-2X just for recording ambient sounds, like those at a river, in a forest or on the ramp. It is not replacing the other mics in the kit, but being added to them which, with the addition of the Tascam not only got smaller and lighter, just a bit more complete. Love this little mic@
