At first, I recorded video on my phone, but that would mean I would have to edit the audio for so long. There's tons of background noise to remove, sharp noises when my hands move, and boosting the faint voices of the teachers.
After we realized these video lessons have to be taken more seriously, I got this and attached it to a new phone gimbal. This is aimable straight at the subject, the windscreen blocks noise, and most impressive - the mic's sensitivity and tuning is great for the subject being three feet away.
Even after upgrading to a dslr, I still use this mic for good, clear audio.
Long story shot, My main workhorses back then was my Sennheiser MKE-300 and my Rode Video Shotgun. The Sennheiser had slightly better audio but would break ALL THE TIME. I'd go through one a year and constantly try to get them repaired (they never came back 100% even when sent in to Sennheiser). While the Rode still works to this day and it's audio is definitely acceptable.
Now this mic, is surprising, what was a $200 prosumer mic, the Rode Videomic, has somehow been cramed into this short shotgun. I just did a test yesterday directly comparing the recordings from both mics at different distances and I have to say, this tiny Neewer mic, the CM14, is equal to my Rode Videomic. It's just as clear, it's pickup distance is the same and the tones match, the only thing that's different is it's tiny size... I have no idea how they did this, but I just ordered 2 more as I'm going to do a live stream this Halloween as my first "serious" production in 5 years. I'm going to mix the place up, run it through my mixer, feeding that into my PC to Streamlabs.
For this price it's 10/10, you'd be paying more than 20X as much for a better mic. Buy this and a pair of lapels (wireless if you can afford it), maybe a Zoom 1 or 4 for remote recording and you should be covered for 90% of your audio needs for small productions.
But there is a bit of a hiss that it picks up in recordings, which is noticeable when no other sounds are active.
Overall, a good choice for a budget microphone.

This was false economy sadly. It's taken me a few months to get around to doing this which means my return window has closed and this is off to the waste & recycling centre.
The microphone was well packaged and as described came with two leads, one for use with a camera and one for use with a smart phone. The leads are labelled however in my case both of the labels were stuck onto the same lead. I did not immediately notice this, connected the lead that had the microphone label on it and of course it did not work. Then I noticed the 2 labels on one lead situation tried the other lead and it worked.
The next concern was how flimsy the shock mount is. It is made from what appears to be very thin plastic, I assume part of the reason for this is to absorb shock but it appears to be very fragile and I can imagine very easy to break. I have enquired of Neewer as to whether replacement shock mounts are available but so far have not received a reply.
In use the microphone provide very good sound, you do need to play with the external microphone settings in the camera but once you have it set up it is very good. The 2 windscreens work well, the furry one is very good at screening put quite strong wind noise. With the microphone fitted with it facing forward the focus noise is barely discernible. As an experiment I fixed the microphone facing backwards and there was no focus noise at all. This works well if the only voice is the person operating the camera, less well if the main sound is from the front of the camera. Also I did not risk the shock mount breaking by removing the microphone from the mount, I removed the mount with the microphone still attached from the camera hot shoe and reversed the whole assembly.
The microphone also works very well on my Windows PC so is useful in dubbing.
All in all a very good purchase, the only reason for 4 rather than 5 stars is the poor quality control with the labels but mainly because of the fragile nature of the shock mount, which may be stronger than it looks, but I do not want to find out how easily it will break for obvious reasons.
Performance is very good and certainly considerably better than relying on internal mics. This mic does not have the harshness of some of the similar looking mics, it has a warmer sound. The mic cradle isolating support is well designed allowing for a bit of flexibility on front back positioning.
Overall this is an excellent value mic.
In addition, the support from seller is quick and helpful.
The Neewer gives a thinner sound with an emphasis on esses, and has a sort of metallic boom and yet the price makes it a very good option.
If you put some effort in equalising the recordings the end result will sound better. If you want a better sound out of the box, be prepared to spend a lot more money.
There are plenty of comparison videos available if you need to hear the difference with a Rode.
