The Rode VideoMic & Micro Boompole Kit with Windbuster from B&H includes everything you'll need to capture audio from overhead.

The VideoMic is a shotgun microphone with an integrated Rycote Lyre Suspension System that can easily be mounted on a boompole or DSLR camera. Its super-cardioid polar pattern attenuates sounds from the sides. The result is a signal that sounds closer to the camera, even when shooting in noisy environments or at moderate distances.

The included Rycote Lyre is a non-elasticated suspension structure composed of a hard-wearing thermoplastic. It is more effective at acoustically decoupling microphones from unwanted vibrations, handling and cable-borne noise than elasticated suspensions. The lyre remains effective at a wide range of temperatures and is virtually indestructible. It will never wear out, sag, snap or require any rethreading to maintain its effectiveness.

The Micro Boompole is a convenient and portable, 3-piece boom pole. Lightweight and precision balanced, the anodized aluminum pole features intuitive twist locks for smooth extension. With the included 10' Rode VideoMic Cable connected to the VideoMic's 1/8" male output and coiled down the boompole, you'll be able to easily connect to your favorite field recorder.

The Auray Fuzzy Windbuster is made of an artificial rabbit fur material for maximum protection against wind noise. The Fuzzy Windbuster slips over windscreens for added protection.

              Comments about Rode VideoMic & Micro Boompole Kit with Windbuster:

              On a whim I decided to get this kit instead of just the mic. All of the items are of very good quality. The VideoMic is INTENSELY better than the built in mic on my D3200 and MUCH better than the on in my HV20. It isn't QUITE as directional as I'd hoped, but it is very, very good. The boom pole is a great option, and the windbuster is pretty necessary if you're going to be in anything worse than a light breeze. In all: Great.

              Comments about Rode VideoMic & Micro Boompole Kit with Windbuster:

              I've had this microphone for about 6 months after purchasing it from B&H and I love it. I'm a new student studying Digital Cinematography online with Full Sail University and have been using this mic to record audio for my videos. The only issue I have is with the wind buster. After filming on a windy day I found that wind buster had completely blocked all sound and I ended up with wasted footage. The microphone itself is great for beginners like myself and the boom pole does its job. I definitely recommend this for people on a budget. If you need assistance with the mic there are plenty of videos online that will help you.

              Comments about Rode VideoMic & Micro Boompole Kit with Windbuster:

              I was looking for a value deal, and found this. This shotgun mic has very good audio quality. It attaches right to your shoe, and the boom when needing to do interviews or regular movie shooting. The cable is smaller and might be the one thing that might need upgrading, but it works for now.
