RODE VideoMic GO
Lightweight On-Camera Microphone
Compact and light weight by design, the VideoMic GO delivers clear, crisp, directional audio with incredible ease of use. Its tight pickup area focuses directly in front of the microphone and reduces other surrounding sounds, ensuring that your subject is isolated from distracting background noise.
The integrated Rycote Lyre shock mount isolates your microphone from bumps and vibrations that could otherwise interfere with your sound. Constructed from a single piece of hard-wearing thermoplastic, the Lyre provides superior acoustic suspension to traditional elastic solutions, and will never wear out, sag or snap.
The VideoMic GO has no complicated switches or settings and is powered by your camera's external microphone input, requiring no batteries to operate, ensuring you never miss a great shot. The VideoMic GO is designed and made in Australia.
From its humble beginning in the 1990s, RØDE Microphones has gone from strength to strength on the global stage and has become the go-to microphone for a variety of industries. RØDE employs the latest technology and precision machinery to continue to keep its products at world-class standards and at a great price.

Top Customer Reviews
It's a directional shotgun mic that is easy to use and set up. And it's passive, which means no batteries. While this may be a drawback for the more pro-user, the lack of battery or power may be better for the regular everyday user. With quality construction, it's built pretty tough - Mostly aluminum, with a bit of plastic on the back.
The Mic plugs in with a 3.5mm and is compatible with most smart devices that have the female end. There is even a passthrough connection in the back so you can listen after you record something. Heck, you can even use the Rode VideoMic Me for phone calls or FaceTime, if you want.
The kit is pretty decent and includes a dead cat and plastic clamping piece. All in all, a great device to capture better audio for Instagram, Snapchat or Facebook live, not to mention just recording memories on you device. I totally recommend this if you're in the market to increase the audio in your videos on a budget.
I've tried SO much inexpensive audio equipment over the last couple years trying to find something decent for my small budget. Problem solved! The sound is a mile better than the popular Vidpro XM-55 or SGC-598 so if your considering those do yourself a favor and get this instead. It's also far simpler than using a TASCAM DR-60DmkII or post syncing with my TASCAM DR-40.
Just plug it in and get great audio.
It's camera powered - No forgetting to turn on the mic or running out of battery. That's s huge plus right there.
Its small, stays out of way, has a great wind screen (a good furry is typically almost the price of this whole microphone).
It's pretty decent directionally, doesn't pick up a lot of sound from behind the camera. I've got allergies right now and my stuffy breathing is barely picked up at all.
I primarily use it with my Canon 70D but it also mounts to my DJI OSMO via the Osmo - Quick Release 360° Mic Mount with great results.
I'll still need a Tascam with Lavalier mics or the Rode NTG2 for some demanding jobs, but I suspect the Rode VideoMico will be used quite a bit on its own too. The quality is great and it just makes life simpler.
Also my dog is obsessed with it since it's furry and jiggles in its soft-mount which makes for some fun footage ; )
He thinks it's a critter - so I cant leave it lying around!
The package that it came in is very nice. I've kept it as storage for when I'm not using the mic. Included is the mic, the wind cover, and the plastic stabilizer for the mic, as well as the instructions.
The best part about this is you really only need to plug it in and that's it! Once plugged in, the iPhone picks up its sound through the mic and you're good to go.
I did several A/B tests on the same subjects with and without the mic and the wind cover and I will say, you can DEFINITELY tell a huge difference when using the mic. Most of my work is done indoors, but the wind cover still helps with smoothing out peoples voices.
Nice packaging that doubles as storage
Very easy to use
Wind cover is a bit bulky, but doesn't interfere with the shot
