There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Do note: This Amazon listing is messed up and confusing. Rode has several different (TOTALLY different) microphones on this one page. So you're looking at reviews on OTHER mics. Keep in mind this (my own) video review is only for the Rode Videomic Pro Plus. Not any of their lav mics or any of that nonsense. I hope Rode splits their listings because this is incredibly confusing.
Overall, highly recommended. Totally worth the cost compared to going with the basic Rode Videomic.
Hope this helps!
READ the instruction flyer (as best you can, it's tiny and multi-language) so you understand all the great features.. it is worth the time.

See video for more detail and examples of it's quality.
I tested it once or twice on the camera when I got it new (January) and it was fine. I took it to a shoot the other day and found it wouldn't turn on, so I was a bit annoyed as it's not been on and with it's claimed battery life shouldn't have died. But it may have lost charge when not in use. I charged it all night, lights were on and blinking etc. Next day... Dead. And this time it was needed for a shoot.
Got in touch with Amazon who passed me on to Rode, guy on the phone was like a rabbit in the headlights calling back to a manager, then to get a warranty return, I had to go to the website and fill this digital form in (despite them going through all the process with Amazon, who know the order number and all the details etc...) then I had to send proof of warranty (which they already would have had from amazon), then once I do that they say not to return it until I'm sent an RMA whatever the f that is....
Anyway later I get another email telling me to send it to them, with a lengthy list of things i mustnt get wrong when sending it, AND to provide proof of warranty. And before I send it back, I need to go to the website and register for the 10 year warranty on this particular product too..
It's totally stupid, if you are remotely pro in video making don't go there with Rode, if this is their customer service you'll be without kit (that should work in the first place anyway) for weeks, waiting on emails and faffing about. If i had an option to get a refund I would and I'm sure as hell not going near Rode stuff again after this experience.
I absolutely love that it automatically switches on when the camera starts recording - saved my video so many times.
It has a rechargeable battery that seems to last for ever, and in an emergency you can swap it out for a pair of AA batteries.
The function I wanted is the gain boost, which is something this device offered that other shotgun microphones did not - it gives +20dB and - 10dB gain options on the primary channel (it also can record a safety channel which is handy). This is a great feature because DSLR amplifiers are crap, and by turning this down in the DSLR settings, the microphone compensates with the gain boost - essentially, this gets rid of that annoying hiss you get when you record video and audio with a digital camera.
It works extremely well, switches itself on automatically when it receives auxiliary signal from the master device (be that audio recorder, camera etc) and it has a rechargeable, removable Lithium Polymer battery, which itself lasts between 80 and 100 hours.
The VMP+ is that improvement, and what a significant improvement it is.
There’s hundreds of reviews online so I don’t need to mention the operation or sound quality except to add that in this era of YouTube it’s the audio that can make or break your footage. If you’re serious about video then don’t skimp on the microphone.
