Very Impressed

  • Excerpt: This is my second Rode mic, the first being a VideoMic Pro for DSLRs. I have to say that this mic compares very favorably to the Sennheiser 416. I also love the padded cylinder that they include for transport - a very nice touch. All in all, I'd rate it excellent in both sound quality and for value.

This is a solid mic.

  • Excerpt: Although, the only other shotgun mic that I have used is an Azden SGM-2. I will have to say that this mic blows the Azden out of the water. The self-noise is almost non-existent and the sensitivity is amazing. My recommendation is that if you are a fledgling indie film-maker like me, spend the extra money and get this mic. It will be well worth the extra money.
  • Pros: Low Self-noise, Sensitive, Supreme Build Quality, Weather resistant, Wide Polar Pattern
  • Cons: Wide Polar Pattern

Great mic for the $

  • Excerpt: We use this primarily on a boom pole, but the pattern is wide enough that it works well as an on-camera mic too--used on the c300 since it doesn't have a built-in mic.
  • Pros: Great Sound Quality

Worth the Cost

  • Excerpt: When I was starting out I didn't have the money for a nice shotgun mic like this one. Instead I got the cheaper NTG-2, which has its shortcomings but served me well at first. But after shooting a video on a rainy day once and hearing the little POPS and CRACKLES in the audio later I knew that it was time to upgrade. This mic performs in both wet and dry conditions, and it's WAY more sensitive than my old mic.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Easy To Use

Ideal for one-man-band shooters

  • Excerpt: Excellent sound quality, just like anything from Rode, but this one is exceptional. Was initially a bit worried about the wider pick-up range in this mic, but for me, as a shooter who's often managing shoots all by myself, having a bit more of a forgiving range is actually better. I can mount this on a c-stand and not worry if talent moves a bit while I'm shooting. Spend the extra money over the NTG2. Seriously. Audio is SO critical. It's worth a few hundred bucks more.
