    "Bang for the buck...I love this mic it works perfect, but if your buying it from bestbuy you might have issues with the threading at the bottom of the mic for aftermarket stands I had to swap 3 times until I decided to exchange the mic and get a keyboard...However, I ended up just buying a cheap $7 USB adapter that has an off/on power button so I can leave the microphone plugged in and just press the button on the adapter when I need to use it"

    "Great mic for 3mm...What a great find...So I did a lot of research on what on camera microphone is the best to get for shooting video and this has to be it...The hotshoe mount on the VideoMic Pro works great when I'm using it on my DSLR when shooting on the go or with an adapter so I can hang it over a subject as a boom mic"
