Rode VideoMic Pro
Compact Directional On-Camera Microphone with Rycote Lyre Shockmount
The RØDE VideoMic Pro is a true shotgun microphone designed for use with camcorders, DSLR cameras and portable audio recorders as a source of primary and reference audio. The VideoMic pro is battery powered, and provides over 70 hours recording from a single 9V battery. The RØDE VideoMic is designed and made in Australia, and covered by RØDE Microphones' industry leading 10 year warranty.
At the heart of the VideoMic Pro is an all-new 1/2-inch condenser capsule that provides broadcast-quality audio via a 3.5 millimeter minijack connector (outputting the mono signal to both left and right channels) with an incredibly low self-noise of just 14db. A super-cardioid polar pattern ensures that surrounding audio is minimised, and your recording is focused on the subject in front of the camera.
The integrated Rycote Lyre based shock mounting system separates the VideoMic Pro capsule and electronics from its mount, providing isolation from external physical factors that may cause unwanted rumble and vibrations in the microphone. 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.

Easily accessible on the rear face of the microphone are the power, filter and level controls. In addition to the microphone's native 40Hz-20kHz response a selectable high-pass filter at 80Hz is available, which will prevent low end noise such as air conditioners and traffic from being recorded.
Below these controls are the level settings, which attenuate or boost the recorded level as required. The -10dB level attenuation (or PAD) is ideal for recording loud sound sources, such as live music, motorsport, or interviews where the subject is very close to the camera. The +20dB level boost is designed for use with DSLR cameras, allowing the user to reduce the camera's preamp level (or mic-input level), effectively reducing the amount of noise generated by the camera's comparatively low quality audio circuitry.
The microphone uses a standard sized shoe mount for on camera use, and features a 3/8-inch thread in the base of the mount for easy boom pole mounting.

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
