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.
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.
Summary: This is a very good mic and easy to setup. I got this microphone cause i recently started creating more videos with my dslr canon t4i and after looking at many different microphones the Rode videomic was the one tha got the best reviews.
Summary: ***Updated – This review is for the VideoMic PRO. For some reason ebay asked me to write a review thinking I bought the $150 VideoMic. I realized this afterwards.*** I'm a video production professional, and where I work we use boom mics that easily cost in the thousands of dollars. I bought a Rode VideoMic Pro for a project that I recently did outside of work.
