      Rode's video mike is great at getting sound from a distance but the stock foam cover doesn't work well for wind above slow breeze. This deadcat kills virtually wind noise, and the smooth lining, small velcro tab make for easy removal when you go back inside. Used it for a wedding at the top of a ski mountain while storm blew in from 8 miles out. The guests could scarcely hear the mothers, but the mic and deadcat gave me great sound for the DVD. If you plan to record outside - and you will - get a deadcat. WAY cheaper than a sound guy...

      Does what it's suppose to do, especially outside with a breeze. I like shooting outside, so it's helpful. I have more problems with white noise coming from the mic than wind noise from the air. I would have rated 4 stars if it didn't seem like it looses hair like an actual cat.

        Comments about Rode Dead Cat Wind Muff for VideoMic, NTG-1 and NTG-2 Microphones:

        I haven't had much experience with this product yet, but it seems to work well and I feel that it has given me good quality for a decent price.

        Be forewarned, it does have a tendency to shed. I use it with my Rode NTG-1 Condenser Shotgun Microphone and it can leave hairs behind on my microphone cover.

        On a completely irrelevant but positive note, this makes my microphone look so cute and fluffy that I feel like I have a small woodland animal with me whenever I use it.

        No cats were harmed in the making of this product, which is always a plus. Also, If it ever loses its quality you can probably staple it to a hat and become Davy Crockett...either way your life will be better off for having purchased this fluffy fluffy windsock.

          This dead cat does as intended. I use it with my NTG-2. The only downside is this thing sheds like crazy.

            Comments about Rode Dead Cat Wind Muff for VideoMic, NTG-1 and NTG-2 Microphones:

            firstly, one should know that this product does require that little foam windscreen that the ntg-1 and ntg-2 should come with. Maybe not for everyone, but it did for me. Next, I should say that it isn't perfect but its pretty good. Its a good price with decent quality so I would say that its cost effective. Not a lot that I would say is a problem really besides shedding, just one should acknowledge that it isn't perfect but for the price its very good.

            Comments about Rode Dead Cat Wind Muff for VideoMic, NTG-1 and NTG-2 Microphones:

            Does a good job with breezes, but is not the solution for stronger winds.

            Fits well around the foam cover for the NTG-2, and goes on fairly quickly. For the price, it's a very good purchase, and am pleased after hearing the first round of interviews.

            Will invest in the blimp and wind cover later, but this did the job short-term.

                    This is the one that fits over the foam that comes with the Mic. And even then I had to use rubber bands to secure it to the NTG-1. I like the other Rode cover better -- the one you have to squeeze on the microphone. But if this is all you have it definitely cuts down on wind.

                            I have used it in two shoots and I can tell a change in the static when shooting in my house. Which is that it picks up less than it did with the standard screen that came with my Rode NTG1. I have not used it outside yet but I rarely do so I am happy with the performance inside thus far.

                              I had tried others that were supposed to fit the NTG-1. They fit like a size 14 shoe on a size 9 foot. This is more expensive but it fits like it should.

                                    This isn't going to hold up in high winds, but for everyday breeze, it's great. It's compact and fits well over the stock windscreen.

                                      What a horrible name! Dead Cat.... Regardless I've used this several times from a large echoed church to a small room and this helps cut down noise.

                                      We use the Dead Cat Windmuff for commercial video and surf filming. The Dead Cat completely stepped up the audio in our productions 100%! There's not one problem with it!

                                          I use this on the Rode Videomic on my Canon T4i. It works great. I live in a windy area and this is mandatory for me any time I'm outside. It does a great job of reducing wind noise without affecting sound quality.
