The SMX-20 DSLR Stereo Microphone is a compact, highly directional microphone intended for use with DSLR cameras. The SMX-20 greatly improves the audio on DSLR cameras, while its compact 5" (12.7cm) length makes it easy to mount and remain out of view. Its highly directional pickup, wide frequency response and stereo audio imagery are sure to suite the gamut of video capturing applications. The SMX-20 features an attached coiled cable with a 1/8" (3.5mm) terminated connection, and ships with an LR44 battery, windscreen and shockmount holder with shoe.

As others have said, a very good performing mic and very good value at under $70. Audio quality much better than camera's built in mic especially with wind muff and included shock mount. Compact and light, this mic is short and sits high enough that it doesn't get in the field of view even when using a short lens like a 35mm lens. Mic with wind muff extends about 2-1/2 inches in front of the D7100 lens mount opening. It sits about 2-7/8 inch high when on the shoe mount and 5-1/2 inches in length. When used with a Nikon D7100 which supports plug-in power in the mic input port there's no need to worry about carrying separate battery for this mic. Nikon D7100 with this mic can record around 1 hr & 20 min of audio/video using only camera's battery. If you are looking for an external mic that provides good sound, compact, light and is less than $100, this is the mic to get.
I have a lot of experience with Azden microphones. I feel that they produce some of the best shotgun mics in terms of performance and value. Their new SMX-20 follows suit. It's compact, sounds great and is priced very competitively compared to other mics in its class. The included shockmount is very isolating and a nice bonus. If you need a short external mic for your DSLR camera and don't want to spend a ton of money, the SMX-20 is a good choice.
