I make beauty/vlog videos on YouTube. I was hesitant about getting this mic over a shotgun mic - but I ultimately decided on this one, because I found a great deal on it in the Used Department. Overall, it works beautifully! I made a video with sound samples of all of the settings on this mic! .........

I received the mic yesterday. While the sound quality of the mic is really terrific, its build quality is really low. I the slider button broke the very first day when I only used a gentle nudge to move it. Really shocked that a $ dollar mic is such low quality. Really bummed that such a terrific sounding mic couldn't come with better construction.

This is a great mic for video needs. Picks up great sound. I have had one fail before though at an un-opportune time, but Rode fixed no questions asked and stand behind their product.

good mic

By Brent

Verified Buyer

Comments about Rode Stereo VideoMic Pro:

Good mic

does pickup lens focus noise - but I can hear the lens focusing so it is not like it is coupling through the body, just noisey lenses.

sound is decent and the 20 dB boost helps with the noise levels when using the camera as a recorder

Great quality

Comments about Rode Stereo VideoMic Pro:

This is a great on camera mic. I mostly use it in documentary style filmmaking, where it provides a great stereo sound that's directional and separates from the camera body to eliminate camera noise.

Excellent Mic!!

Comments about Rode Stereo VideoMic Pro:

I use this with a Canon Vixia HF G20 Camcorder to shoot live music and concerts. It's very adjustable for low levels and loud Rock bands. The sound is amazing even with no editing or sweetening. All of my clients are blown away and extremely happy with the results.

Perfect for DSLR Video - Surprising Audio Quality

By Michael

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Rode Stereo VideoMic Pro:

I purchased this after owning an earlier model. This one was purchased for use with my Nikon D7100 DSLR.

I had not recorded video with the DSLR but had a special instance where it was required. The audio from this combination was awesome.

High Quality Mic

By Brian

Comments about Rode Stereo VideoMic Pro:

The mic produces a very dynamic sound. I also have the VideoMic Pro, and the difference between the two are stunning! This is a great mic if you're looking to capture ambient and/or surrounding audio for your footage. This mic is definitely a nice addition for the projects I work on.

Great little mic for location/ambient audio

By Grayson

from Atlanta

Verified Buyer

Comments about Rode Stereo VideoMic Pro:

It works great with my Blackmagic Pocket cinema cameras, as well as my 5D3. Provides great quality stereo audio at an affordable price. I also love the ability to have different gains options on the mic itself, as well as a roll off.

For A7s don't bother

By Matt

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Rode Stereo VideoMic Pro:

i used to own a VideoMic Pro which was great: the directional design gave great audio perspective and alleviated the sound of focus pulls on my 5D. A bit flimsy but great sound. This device gives sound which is noticeably dirtier than the built in mic on my A7s. And again it is a very flimsy and oddly shaped device which really needs to come with a basic protective case like the simple one my Zoom H4N came with. Not impressed.

By Proud dad

Comments about Rode Stereo VideoMic Pro:

I purchased this to use while recording my daughter's voice recitals. A major up grade in quality and brightness from the on camera mic. I would recommend to any parent of a talented child.
