    Best Microphone EVER buy for my DSLR

    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 !

    Perfect for dslr cameras. I use the Blu Yeti Pro for computer recordings, but the Røde shotgun mic is what you need for video recordings. Can't go wrong with this product.

    I needed to shoot video with my Nikon D800. Great camera, but the built in mic was not going to make it. The sound quality of this microphone is amazing, but it must be turned on. I forgot during one taping session and ended up with stellar video and no audio at all. Painful lesson. If it is not on, it is not passive. Pure operator issue and one I will not soon forget.

    I bought this mic to help alleviate the echoes from filming inside gymnasiums. It does a great job of canceling out unwanted noise and focusing on the subject. I had to get the powered mic as my Canon Vixia doesn't have a powered port and Battery life is really great too.
