The VideoMic with Rycote Lyre Suspension System from Rode is a shotgun microphone that can easily be mounted on a DSLR camera. It features a Rycote suspension system that attaches to the camera's shoe. The VideoMic is lightweight, and when mounting on a camera it does not appear in the frame. The VideoMic can also mount to Rode's boompoles for elevated audio capture. Its super-cardioid polar pattern attenuates sounds from the sides. The result is a signal that sounds closer to the camera, even when shooting in noisy environments or at moderate distances. The included Rycote Lyre is a non-elasticated suspension structure composed of a hard-wearing thermoplastic. It is more effective at acoustically decoupling microphones from unwanted vibrations, handling and cable-borne noise than elasticated suspensions. The lyre remains effective at a wide range of temperatures and is virtually indestructible. It will never wear out, sag, snap or require any rethreading to maintain its effectiveness. An attached, coiled cable terminates to a 1/8" (3.5mm) mini output connection. The VideoMic features a condenser element that utilizes a standard 9 Volt battery (sold separately). The microphone will run for approximately 100 hours on a single battery. In the box: - Rode Videomic Shotgun microphone with Rycote Lyre Suspension - Windmuff for audio wind protection (up to 25 mph) - Black tripod extending music stand with boom arm (3'1" to 7'2") - Music stand to 3/8" adapter - 1/8" stereo 25' extension cable

I have had some issues while getting used to this mic. In the beginning, I would get a high pitched sound which I thought was the mic or possibly a bad connection to my Sony Handycam. Other times it would go away. I have no formal training in sound equipment so excuse my inexperience. Through a lot of searing online, and trial and error, I found the following things helped. Moving the mic so it wasn't directly in front of the soft light kit. Keeping the cord on carpet rather than the hardwood floor. Avoiding letting the cable touch other cables or too much metal (tripods, etc.).
In other words, I highly recommend this mic kit, but you need to know where/how to place the mic and cable for the best outcome.
(The weakest part of this kit would be the stand. It works fine, but it is a little flimsy.)
The biggest issue is the db setting is INSIDE the battery compartment and it is incredibly small. It's a big pain to mess with if I want to see what it sounds like.
The deadcat seems pretty lackluster, but it doesn't affect me much since I mainly shoot inside.
