Rode VideoMicro Reviews
Fits in my bag Nicely for those times I want to shoot video.
Such a professional sound so far
Thankful for the recommendation of the mic. So happy
Mic may be small, but certainly makes a difference in audio quality. Doesn't work as well on smaller cameras or iPhones if using the windshield, however, as it may come into frame. Otherwise excellent product.
Rode VideoMicro Ultra Shotgun Mic Mixed Review 05-11-2022
Hello all, The review is mixed for the Rode VideoMicro Ultracompact Camera- Mount Shotgun Microphone. The windshield works great on windy days. However, the audio is only capable of capture at a good level from 5 feet away. Also, I think the microphone is omnidirectional, meaning, it picks up sound from all directions. So, if there is a lot of background noise, it is captured loudly, as well. On the other hand, if U are using for indoor sound capture, it works great!!!
Good mic for the price
Good value. If you want better performance you have to spend more money. I notice some complaints in the reviews here about the mic flopping around on its mount. Lock the cable into one of the slots at the base and it secures the mic from flopping.
Compact but Powerful
This is a perfect compact mic to store in your bag when you need high-quality audio but don't have much room.
Great little mic
I was a little worried about the sound quality, but this was very impressive little mic and a step way above the internal mic on my camera.
Great Mic for the price
50 is a perfect price, you get what you pay for, nothing groundbreaking but if you didn't know you wouldn't be able to tell
