    Rode RODC reviews

    Dead Cat Wind Muff for VideoMic, NTG1 and NTG2 Microphones is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 109.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome wind cutting performance 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...

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not good with wide angle lens My mistake. I used the Dead Cat on a Rode VideoMic on a Canon Vixia HV-30 with the Canon wide-angle lens. Only after flying back from the windy outdoor shoot in Denver did I discover what looks like whisps of long hair flitting across the top of the frame! Because the Dead Cat's long hair is very light colored, I couldn't see it in the LCD camera monitor during the shoot, but they sure are noticeable on a large monitor. Ruined my outdoor interviews... and it actually shed hair all over my camera case! However, the windnoise certainly was minimal, but that doesn't matter if the shot is ruined. Use only on a boom, or when the mic is well away from the camera lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Thing Really Works! I am amazed at how well this dead cat works. It was a very windy day last week so I thought I would give this hairy thing a workout. I took my daughter to the park with gail force winds. I held up my camcorder to catch even more wind...I said to my self, no way will this thing work. I couldn't wait to play the video when I got home. Well...I had to eat my words. I could hear my daughter perfectly through the wind. Her voice was clear as a bell. I did hear a very small hiss but the auto was very good on this very windy day. I bought this because I have an out door wedding to video tape next week. I am no longer concerned about out door wind problems. Just one may have to cut just a small amount of hair off this dead cat, only because you may see some of the hairs hanging down on your video, especially if you use a wide angle lens.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good but be careful not to get it in your shot! This is a great wind dampening divide, however it's to be used with caution. I only say that because twice I've accidentally captured the hairs at the end of the dead cat, while attached to the foam-covered Rode NTG2 mic, in the frame while filming and not realized it until it was too late. If the mic is mounted too far forward on your camera, depending on which lens your using, you can get the hairs blowing around in your frame. This is especially the case with wide angle lenses. I'd recommend mounting the mic as far back as possible, making sure it's not in frame at your lenses' widest setting. Other than that, this serves it's purpose well! I do love Rode products, not hating, just a word of caution.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well so far 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you plan to shoot outdoors... buy it You are planning to shoot outdoors and there is no way in the whole universe that you have the power to control the environment? Let me tell you one thing: Wind will happen. And putting some kind of cloth around the mic will make things worse. So instead of gutting that teddy bear you had since you were two, buy this. You won't regret it.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Stop wind noise, it does. 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.
    Date published: 2012-02-26
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from An NTG-1/2 Must If you can't afford a full zeppelin, go with this cover. It doesn't fit many other mics but if you have an NTG-1 or 2 this is a cheap solution for high wind situations.
