Bass Media Equipment Checkout is an iniative run by the Student Technology Collaborative, and staffed and supported by Bass Library. We invite Yale students, faculty, and staff to borrow cameras, audio equipment, laptops, and more for use in curricular or personal projects at no cost. Equipment must be picked up or dropped off while the Bass Library Services Desk is open; hours can be found here.

This microphone will work with the following models of cameras:

  • Panasonic HDC-TM-900K

It will not work with other models as they do not have shoe connectors to mount the microphone, and some models do not have a microphone input.
