    1. Not for the OCD types, huh?

      If you look at it closely, it looks like this because you can turn it 90 degrees and operate in two positions.

  1. Not too concerned about the fidelity as much as the sensitivity. For example, if I could sit in my car and pick up awesome stuff in-detail going on around the parking lot, I’d be interested.

  2. Assuming you can shoot video while recording with it, does it have a cable so you can place the mic and the camera in separate locations?
