VideoMic Pro Shotgun Microphone and Windbuster Kit is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Shotgun for Blackmagic Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera needs the gain switch on this mic for good internal recording. Windbuster helps for outdoor windy use. Keeps the camera small and discreet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mic at a fair price. This has proven to be a great lightweight mic, especially with the wind cover on. With its light weight & small size I just put it on as soon as I get the camera out and it never seems obtrusive. In situations where my onboard mics on the C100 II and the 70D are useless this little mic has come through repeatedly despite windy/gusty conditions. Obviously it too will be defeated by strong wind but it holds up well enough most of the time. Battery installation is a bit awkward but the battery life is long enough that it's a non issue. Don't know how well the shock mount elastics will hold up in the long term but it came with a replacement set and I haven't needed them so far (nearly one year). When the mic is stowed at the end of a shoot it lives loose on top of other equipment in my bag - the wind cover (aka dead cat) stays on and protects the mic from my other gear. My one minor criticism is that the elastic that holds the dead cat (wind cover) on tends to ride up and over the switches on the back of the mic. It's pretty trivial though and hasn't caused any problems or come off. The recording quality from this mic is excellent. For a small light package and a reasonable price (IMO) this has become a must have part of my shooting setup. Definitely recommended, especially on DSLRs where the size and weight don't attract attention or affect the balance of the rig.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shotgun mic for skateboarding! I enjoy this mic alot! Great audio, easy to use and the windbuster kit helps for those windy days. I think the only down side to this was putting on the 9v battery, it is a bit difficult to put into the slot, but overall a great mic. For any skateboard filmer on a budget who is looking for a shotgun mic with great audio and also a fuzzy mic cover, I'd HIGHLY recommend this mic kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great microphone With a built in pre amp and hours of battery life. This will be a reliable addition to your arsenal if you dont have a microphone yet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sound in a pinch! I am an amateur director who needed an upgrade over the built in camera microphone. After a considerable amount of research, the videomic pro seemed to be the best option for the price. It certainly doesn't produce perfect sound, but it is a big upgrade over the built in microphone on the camera. I'm currently using it plugged directly into a Canon T4i. There is a little noise, but voices come through warm and clear. There's not much tin, though it does still pick up a considerable amount of echo in small, hard surfaced rooms. The windbuster is a little tricky to put on, but seems to work very well. I've only briefly tested this feature, and will update this review if I notice anything either spectacularly good or bad. Overall, it's a good, simple solution for in-camera audio. I put four stars because it's a *little* expensive for the sound quality delivered, but that's more in line with a pet peeve than an actual complaint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all around microphone Works well and battery lasts surprisingly long. I got 3 weeks of off and on use. I was pleasantly impressed at how well it did when shooting a concert. It has a tendanxy to gain to high during interviews but that is a problem with my camera not the mic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good mic The VideoMic Pro is a solid on-camera mic. I use it on my C100 when I'm trying to stay lightweight. It has served as my primary mic in a few situations and a backup in many. Great bang for your buck. The wind buster works well too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mic Almost all my video is shot outdoors. This mic cuts out a lot of wind noise.
