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.
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: Gives good sound, easy to use, long lasting battery (9volt). Works well with audio records as well. A tad bit pricey, but you get what you pay for. RODE microphones are a great place to start.
