    Best Microphone EVER buy for my DSLR

    |
    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    For cameras, For dslr, Sound quality

    After read a lot and see a few videos to find the right Mic for my DSLR i found this amazing mic to replace the built-in mic of my dslr. I realized that in order to eliminate ambience sound/noise I needed to get a shotgun mic so i buy Rode videomic and with my Canon 70D is the perfect combo for all my audio recording needs. You can also connect the video mic directly to your dslr camera but you will not be able to monitor the audio levels, unless of course your camera has a designated headphone output BUT with the Zoom H1, you can monitor the audio levels from the videomic. I also purchased the Sescom LN2MIC-ZOOMH4N 3.5mm Line to Mic cable to be able to route the ouput audio from the Zoom H1 to the camera. I noticed that by using this cable it reduces hiss noise. If you're looking into buying the Rode videomic, definitely go for the Rycote Lyre Mount. It is sturdy. No need to replace rubber bands unlike the previous Rode model. I have the videomic attached to a ALZO Multi-Mount and it does reduce noise and I can't barely hear the camera lens. Hope this feedback can help some of you out there. Of course there are other better shotgun mics out there, but under $200 the Rode videomic with the Rycote Mount is a great choice if your budget is tight,BEST choice you can ever make !

    I really did not noticed a difference in the sound with this microphone. Or just maybe I wanted just to return it because I was broke lol. No really I did notice a difference in my volume having the microphone on my camera or off. Not to say it did not work because of the quality of my camera. However it sure did make my camera look more expensive and professional.

    I just love the way this Rode mic sounds. The sound is very clear and it has a professional appearance. I found it easy to install and iI highly recommend it over some of the less expensive name brands. If you are looking for quality and a professional sound you would be wise to consider purchasing this mic because you won’t regret it.

    Works great with my Canon Rebel T3. I made a video for a client where he is speaking on-camera. Apart from the Røde mic I also had a lapel mic attached to an iPad. I overlapped the two sound files in post-production for a rich and clear sound. Without the Røde the sound would have been poor and with echo. I consider this buy a good investment.

    Using this for outdoor video’ing sports games connected to iPhone 11 Pro. Picks up sound very well, but the screen doesn’t block wind noise. Will have to buy a deadcat wind shield to make it more effective.

    This was exactly what I needed! Used it to record my daughter's graduation and award ceremonies. Worked great. I could tell the difference with and without it, and the sound quality is so much better with it.

    I am not an expert on sound engineering so I can't compare this to other models but I needed it for a simple video project and I really liked it! In the room there was a loud clock ticking but it didn't pick it up and distract from the talking in the video. Overall I am very pleased with it and would recommend it! The only negative I have so far is the the battery case seems like a cheaper quality plastic, I was just surprised of what it felt like.

    Pretty good

    |
    Posted .

    I am reviewing this item because I think I have to to get 25 bonus points. I have only used it a couple of times. Good points are it captures more bass than the built in mic in my Sony RX10 Mkii. It also does not get as much of the zoom motor and other noise as the built in. It can cut out air conditioning noise that has been a problem for me in the past. The only negative is that my voice from behind it seems to have a strange timbre to it. I have not used it enough to say more about this.
