The Rode VideoMic is a solid, if basic, on-camera shotgun microphone that can be added to nearly any set up with minimal addition of weight. It features a nicely directional supercardioid pattern plus a selectable high-pass filter and two-stage level control for recording loud sound sources.
The lack of the +20db switch available on the VideoMic Pro and Pro Plus make this a microphone best used in quiet spaces, when near the subject or on a camera with solid preamps and is always a solid solution for capturing reference audio.
