Olympus SEMA-1 Stereo External Microphone Kit

The price on this little gadget from Olympus has dropped to $54.55 at Amazon and a few other online stores.  It works on all Olympus PEN series cameras as well as XZ-1 and XZ-2.  If you have shot any videos on cameras with excellent HD video quality, you will notice that the sound quality is far behind its counterpart.

The kit comes with an adapter, an audio extension cable and a compact microphone, ME-51S. The largest portion of what you pay is probably for the microphone which is the downside if you want to use a different unit which can be accomplished by plugging into the available port on the adapter.

The Me-51s does have very good reviews reported by the users though, and it is super compact for what it does. It records audio in stereo instead of mono recording from the built-in unit.  One of the common complaints on this microphone has to do with the wind noise when used in an outdoor setting.

Luckily, there is a very cheap solution that works very well. Thanks to this guy who posted a DIY solution using a form brush.
