The AT2022 is a condenser microphone designed for stereo recording. Two unidirectional condenser capsules in an X/Y configuration pivot to allow for narrow (90°) or wide (120°) stereo operation. The capsules also fold flat for storage and transportation. Designed for general stereo recording and field sound capture, the AT2022 provides the spatial impact and realism of a live sound field. The microphone comes equipped with a stand clamp, AA battery, fuzzy windscreen and .5 m cable that terminates in a 3.5 mm stereo plug.
 

Video Use?

I came upon this microphone online. How well will it work for video use? I have a Pentax K 01 and want something better than the internal mic. It does have a 1/8" external mic jack but I do not know if the 2022 has enough output to work.
I use this for video use on a Canon HD camcorder with a 1/8" trs input. The sound is fantastic: good signal strength, smooth frequency response, impressive lows, crystal clear high's, and no noticeable peaks or dips. I use it to record full spectrum audio e.g. symphony and opera.

Note the included cable is very short, and you may be able to put a very short (e.g. 3-6 foot) high quality XLR cable if you need a bit of extension. But if you want to run a longer XLR distance, you may notice EMI noise. I ran into this problem and found my only solution was to run my camera from battery and without an external video monitor. I think the contrasting power sources induce the noise into my camera with this microphone.

AT2022 - Extended cable length with standard xlr mic cable?

Your AT2022 mic is supplied with what looks like a standard xlr mic connector to a 1/8" stereo connector, presumably for use with a camcorder stereo mic input. Can I add a 50' lo-z standard mic cable to use the mic remotely from my camcorder?
I actually use this mic along with a Canon HD camcorder with a 1/8" trs input and a 50 foot standard XLR cable for extension. Here is what I found related to EMI (and note, it took awhile to troubleshoot this issue).

If I plug the mic into a 50 foot XLR cable, then to the XLR-to-1/8" trs adapter, and into the camera, AND run the camera solely on battery without the AC power adapter AND without connecting to an external monitor, I can run 50 feet without EMI issues.

However, if I make any connections to any plug that is separately powered--be it the included AC adapter, or an HDMI monitor (with its own power source)--then I get noticeable EMI in the audio. Plugging in headphones is fine because they do not have a power source.
