Summary: Video Mic Pro is great microphone perfect for shooting movies and doing interviews with...it picks your voice up very clearly however, it takes few mins to jam the battery in the compartment...There is no simpler way installing the battery with this microphone...
Summary: I take video of different events as a hobby, I then turn that video into a movie using Final Cut Pro 7. I have tried other mics but now I can stop looking. The Rode is doing a great job. I would recommend this mic to any one doing serious video and needs the best audio.
I would recommend this to any photojournalist as a good companion to a DSLR

Summary: I'm a photojournalist and use this mic with my DSLR. It works great and has pretty good sound quality. The controls are not in a very convenient place, but overall I really like the mic. Used mostly for interviews.
Great quality audio with excellent features and price point.

Summary: The Actual Mic I bought is the Rode VideoMic Pro VMP Shotgun Microphone. The Rode video mics are known for their quality. Purchased for use with Canon t4i DSLR and on a boom pole. The mic has great features a dB +20 boost and -10dB reduction. Very nice quality mono sound - I Usually use a lavalier for interviews but will use this also. Easy to use just plug in and go. For events and spontaneous interviews and sound it is perfect. Also great price point.
Summary: I use this videomic to video church services. It works great picking up sound through out the building and far out performes the builtin mics on the video cam. Battery lasts a long time. Great unit ,highly reccomend.
