I've just ordered an Audio-Technica Pro 24-CM Stereo microphone that I'm intending to use with my Nikon D7000 (which is due to arrive on Thursday, Dec. 6th!). Does anyone know if the Nikon D7000 external mic plug provides sufficient power for this mic without using the mic's battery (a 1.5V LR44 battery)?

Nikon's spec for their own ME-1 stereo microphone (which Nikon's website indicates is compatible with the D7000), receives its power from the camera, there is no internal power from the microphone itself. Obviously, the Nikon D7000 external mic plug does provide power for that mic.

According to the Audio-Technica manufacturer's website the Pro 24-CM power requirements are "2-10V DC plug-in power". I've seen reviews of this mic that indicated it's used on some Canon DSLR cameras and is powered by the camera's mic plug.
