Okay, but I returned it for an upgraded mic

  • Excerpt: I bought this to pickup scratch and the occasional interview in a pinch. There's a known hiss when plugged straight into some cameras. It can be avoided with an DSLR adapter. Or you can try to remove it in post.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Flimsy Design

Excellent product with just one minor flaw

  • Excerpt: The sound quality from this mic at this pricepoint is hard to beat. I recorded audio in a noisy environment and it came out clear with no hissing or other issues. The rubber straps holding the mic in place come off easily which is a bit of a nuisance.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality, Lightweight
  • Cons: Flimsy

  • Excerpt: I've used this microphone a few times since I got it and it has pleasantly surprised me each time. This is by no means a substitute for a good boom or wireless, but as something to get full sounding sound, it works.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Interface With Camcorder, Improves Performance, Lightweight, Quality Construction

Good mic

  • Excerpt: The VideoMic Pro is a solid on-camera mic. I use it on my C100 when I'm trying to stay lightweight. It has served as my primary mic in a few situations and a backup in many. Great bang for your buck. The wind buster works well too.
  • Pros: Compact, Good sound quality, Good Value, Lightweight

  • Excerpt: I use this product in my no-budget films and it has worked great for me so far! I like the nice cable that goes from the mic to the camera and it feels very strong. One thing that I didn't exactly like was that there were only to different DB adjustments, but that is just the fact that I didn't...

Works Fine

Richard H, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Definitely boosts the sound, especially directional sound, over the built-in mic on the D810. But it's not an improvement in the quality of sound, an important distinction. I'm also a musician with a fair amount of recording experience with boards, preamps, microphones, etc.
  • Pros: Easy To Use
  • Cons: Flimsy, Noisy
