  • A little costly, but top quality.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Tanwir - March 25, 2019

    I do a small internet show weekly and needed a mic that could pick up good sound from multiple people and from a distance. This Rode Mic works great, audio is clear and there isn’t a lot of background noise. My only issue is that is costs so much, but you gotta pay to play.

  • Good camera so far
    Verified BuyerReviewed by JohnThreeSixteen - October 9, 2020

    I've used it primarily in an outdoors setting hooked up to a GoPro Hero 8 with a videomod accessory. Functions well as far as audio goes, but with the deadcat on it (that I purchased separately), it gets into the field of view of the GoPro when mounted directly on top of it. Of course, there are several workarounds for this (such as getting a coldshoe mount extender to increase the distance between the mic and the GoPro). This would be a great option for those doing interview with DSLRs or larger cameras/camcorders, since I doubt the mic would get into the field of view. Happy to have this in my arsenal and to put it to good use.

  • So Far So Good
    Verified BuyerReviewed by ShawnD - October 1, 2020

    This is my first shotgun mic, so I don’t have anything to compare it to. I watched many reviews and there were more saying it was worth it over the Rode mic below this one at $229. Setting it up was very easy, and I love that it turns on and off with the camera! Seems like a minor thing, but quite a few reviewers has fessed up to forgetting to turn their mics on and off. Also the sound quality is pretty good compared to my camcorders mic. I haven’t tested it outside as of yet, but inside has been very good so far. I’m also looking to buy a wind shield before I test it outside, as “Winter is Coming”, and so is the wind! Lol

  • Great build, great audio, we use it every week
    Verified BuyerReviewed by TylerSmelley - January 3, 2021

    We purchased this as a municipality to use for live-streamed Covid updates for our city in March. We have a much more elaborate setup in place for scheduled or planned releases, but this lives on a mic stand with a cellphone clamp close to the Mayor’s office for quick and easy cell phone recordings that need to happen fast; he can set this on his desk and go live with great audio in about 2 minutes if needed. We also use this setup as the audio for our failover encoder (on iPhone) for planned live streams. We love the ease of use, dead simple design, and directional polar pattern (it’s not a shotgun, it’s not supposed to be. It’s not a micro-condenser, it’s not supposed to be!)

  • Awesome mic!!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by mrcy - October 28, 2020

    Amazing microphone! I upgraded the next day after purchasing the pro one. I think spending an extra $70ish to this was a perfect choice! I don't have to worry about buying more batteries because this camera comes with rechargeable battery. Also this has more options on how you want your sound
