lightweight and affordable

  • Excerpt: The rode go works very well with my d810 which supports power to passive microphones. Its pretty much plug and play if the camera is on auto level. The sound is better than the build in, though in quiet environments, whitenoise is relatively strong. I wouldn't recommend it for interview situations.

Solid unit for price

  • Excerpt: Definitely a solid buy in it's price range. Sometimes I pick up audio that I don't want in an interview setting, but quality is tremendous and it's more of a run and gun mic anyway.

  • Excerpt: I most recently used this mic to record a discussion between four people. There was a small fountatin right next to me, and the mic is so great that you can barely hear the fountain on the audio. Truly a shotgun microphone.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Interface With Camcorder, Improves Performance, Lightweight, Quality Construction

  • Excerpt: Not the best mic on the market, but certainly 90% of your audience won't really know the difference. Attaches easily, and has a great quality. Great value as well.

Great product

  • Excerpt: The audio from the mic is great - it's quite sensitive but reducing to -10DB is generally adequate for normal interview situations.The mic also has a high pass filter (HPF) which cuts rumble.
  • Pros: Durable
