I've used the Audio Technica AT875R for a while now, and for the money it's a superb mic. It does a great job of rejecting any sound which originates outside of the very directional pickup area. It really shines when it's about 2.5' or closer to the subject. When it's further than that the drop-off in level is noticeable.
I also like this mic for its versatility; it works great indoors (unlike a lot of shotgun mics) and its pickup pattern is a little wider than longer shotguns, which IMO makes the AT875R easier to use than the longer mics (you don't need to aim this mic so perfectly). Outdoors, I use the Micover Slipover Windscreen for RODE VideoMic VM over the provided foam windscreen to suppress wind noise and the combination works superbly.
DSLR users should take note: the AT875R has an XLR connector and requires phantom power, so you'll need a preamp / adapter like an IK Multimedia iRig Pre microphone preamp for smartphones and tablets or Saramonic SmartRig Audio Adapter for Smartphones (Black) to get the right signal and the right connector into your DSLR's external audio input.
Buy the right stand, boom, and isolator, so that you can "hang" the mic above your subject, out of frame.
I bought two so far. Enjoy.
