Rode Videomic Shotgun Microphone with Rycote Lyre Mount is a half inch professional grade microphone designed for use on any personal digital camera. The new Rycote Lyre Mount upgrades this microphone to all new levels. Though consumer video cameras have great video quality, the audio quality is often time lacking. This is the perfect microphone upgrade for serious videographers without the budget of a movie star. An integrated shock mounting system isolates the electronics and VideoMic capsule from the metal shoe, preventing any rumbles or vibrations from affecting the sound quality. No additional adaptors are necessary since the metal shoe has a 0.375 inch standard thread for boom sticks. The super cardoid polar pattern focusing on the subject in front of the camera. The microphone has a 80 Hz high pass filter to remove low end noise like traffic and air conditioning. A -10 and -20dB level attenuation is selectable from the battery department. The Auray WSW Series Custom Windbusters provide dual layered wind protection and are designed to substantially reduce unwanted broadband wind noise and vocal pops with minimal high frequency loss.

I highly recommend getting this Mic over the VideoMic Go, because of the battery in the mic. Although this might sound like a pain having to charge/replace batteries for the microphone, it helps you in post because of the PreAmps inside it, that don't rely on a camera's poor preamps. Don't go cheap on your audio, audiences will notice bad audio much faster than poor video quality! This Mic has such good audio that I was able to overlay the pastors voice on top of the video as if his voice was recorded in a studio.
I highly recommend this VideoMic to anyone looking for great Audio on a budget.
this is from the Rode web site:
"If you purchase any RØDE microphone from an unauthorized dealer or via Fulfilled By Amazon or any other method you will not receive any US warranty or technical support."
The Windjammer kit is ok, the sound can be a bit muffled but I have used it on very windy sets and it really does make a difference so dealing with a little muffled sound is better than dealing with wind in your mic.
If you are just starting out and need a good shotgun mic for you system I highlight recommend the videomic.
The microphone is very sensitive. I was testing it out at my kitchen table and during playback on my computer i heard a faint humming noise. After listening to it a few times i realized it picked up the sound of my refrigerator that was running during the time of recording. I haven't tested it at the 80hz setting.
The only thing you have to be careful with is that the windjammer is a little bulky and i did notice a few strands hanging in front of my lens. I look forward to getting a lot of use out of this mic. It is weird that it uses 9v batteries. Not yet sure of how long the 9v will last but the door is pretty easy access although its a bit of a bear to try and get back perfectly closed.
