  • Excerpt: The Rode VideoMic is awesome. Highly portable, great audio quality and battery life is also impressive. The only negative I have with this mic is the process for inserting the batter. I'm sure many others have stated this in their reviews as well, but I'll add one more.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality, Lightweight, Long Lasting
  • Cons: Flimsy

Good Quality For The Price/Bad Design

  • Excerpt: I use this product to get clear and crisp audio when I'm filming. The built in mic on my DSLR just wasn't cutting it so I wanted to give this mic a go. Get it? Because it's called the VideoMic GO?! Haha. Good joke, i know. What is so great about this mic, is the quality for the price.
  • Pros: Amazing For The Price, Easy To Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: Cheap Hardware For Cage, Mic Points Way Too Far Up, Not Durable, Poor 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

No Complaints from Me

  • 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...
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Interface With Camcorder, Improves Performance, Lightweight, Quality Construction, Strong Cable
  • Cons: Flimsy Design, No Settings

A good mic

  • Excerpt: The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is the lack of testing on my part. So far it seems to do a great job but need to use it more to further test it's performance. Right now though i can say it is a good mic.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Reliable

  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor Design
