Directional On-Camera Microphone
The RØDE VideoMic is a professional grade 1/2 inch condenser shotgun microphone designed for use with consumer video cameras and personal audio recorders.
The integrated Rycote Lyre based shock mounting system isolates the VideoMic capsule and electronics from its all-metal shoe 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.
Its standard sized shoe mount also includes a 3/8 inch thread in the base for easy mounting on a boom pole or stand. By employing a super-cardioid polar pattern, the VideoMic becomes highly directional, focusing on the subject in front of the camera, and minimizing any surrounding sounds.
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. A -10dB and -20dB level attenuation (or PAD), selectable from inside the battery compartment, allows recording of loud sound sources, such as live music or motorsport.
The RØDE VideoMic directional on-camera microphone is designed in Australia and covered by RØDE Microphones' industry leading 10 year warranty.

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.
There are two versions of the Rode Videomic (new and old). This one on the Lyre Mount is the older version.
The major difference between the two version of the mic is the controls and size. They are both good videosmics based on user reviews. At the $150 entry-level range, he difference I would argue is negligible for someone who is new and is seeking experience with film and video-editing.
The major selling point here is the Lyre Mount. The major complaint for both versions of the microphones is the Rode mounting equipment, which has a tendency of coming apart based on reviewers. The Lyre Mount system effectively eliminates the issue of having to worry about the mounting equipment in the middle of a shoot. For the same price range, this is a HUGE selling point.
For those who shoot on Canon L Lenses or Nikon bodies, the red color of the Lyre Mount will also match nicely, esp. incorporated with the Manfrotto monopod, which is also accented by red.
And the lowering the gain on the camera trick doesn't work, because as stated before it's not any louder than the camera itself.
Returned it and am thinking of just going with the Pro.
