I almost went with the shure vp83, because it looks to have better (metal) build quality for the same price and a couple of other cool features, but rode's super impressive 10 year warranty kept me with them, that's awesome.
With the rode videomic pro, you can get some pretty great audio, essential especially for the times you can't rely on other externally recorded audio options.
This thing sheds, and often lives up to its name when the fur gets disheveled. It also brings attention to you, having a wind muff over your shotgun mic definitely gives off a more professional image. It's on the more expensive side, but I recommend it.
Since I film on a Canon 5D Mark III primarily (7D is the backup camera), this Videomic Pro seemed like the perfect addition to my arsenal. It is built very solid, a nice short (but not too short) cable to connect to your camera, great quality (even in noisy situations. Head over to YouTube and search for "Chowderfest 2013 Recap" to hear how clear the host is, even with a noisy background with a lot of people and music), and it came with the Deadcat Wind Muff which is supposed to significantly cut down on wind noise. Make sure you pickup some 9V batteries (which say they last 70 hours of operation, but I've only used the mic for a total of 12 hours so far and haven't experienced any battery/quality loss). Here's the ones I purchased: Duracell Procell 9 Volt Batteries, Pack of 12
I'm not sure which isn't working the way it should, but it's either the mic's built-in wind screen, or the Deadcat Wind Muff, but I recently had a shoot in a moderately windy environment (5-15mph wind/gusts) and I have to say that the audio is bad...to the point where I'm dreading having the client listen to the audio.
I really had high hopes for this as the wind screens are meant to help cut down on wind, while not hindering the audio of what is supposed to be heard...quite frankly, I'd take some minor audio muffles if it means I can still hear the people needed to be heard. The wind noise for me is the ultimate killer in the star rating...either cut more wind down, or don't advertise it as a "foam windscreen that minimizes handling and wind noise to keep your recordings crystal clear" since I have everything except "crystal clear" audio.
I hope that Rode fixes this windy mess...
The only bad thing was that the wind was blowing the "fur" down and you can just barely see it at the top of the video. If you were making a more professional video that fur in the video could be a problem. Overall i recommend it.
