Rode VideoMicro Compact On-Camera Microphone
The VideoMicro is a compact microphone designed to improve the audio quality of your videos. It incorporates a high-quality cardioid condenser microphone capsule for great quality audio recordings when used with a wide range of cameras. A directional microphone, the VideoMicro reduces distracting peripheral sounds and focusses on the audio in front of the camera. Its pickup is more forgiving than RØDE’s other on-camera microphones providing a more natural sound when recording indoors. Perfect for capturing incredible audio to accompany inspiring vision. The microphone body is made from aluminium, giving it a high level of RF rejection, and is finished in RØDE’s high-grade ceramic anti-glare black coating. Included with the VideoMicro is a camera shoe mount featuring a Rycote Lyre shock mount. Featuring a suspension structure composed of a hard-wearing thermoplastic, it is far more effective at minimising unwanted vibrations, handling and cable-borne noise than traditional elastic suspensions. Virtually indestructible, the Rycote Lyre will never sag, snap, wear out or require rethreading to maintain its effectiveness. Also included is the WS9 synthetic furry wind shield with foam inner cell, designed for use in outdoor scenarios where wind and environmental noise can inhibit recordings. Optionally available is the RØDE SC7, a TRS to TRRS cable that allows the VideoMicro to be used with smartphones, to capture crystal clear, directional sound for video and video applications such as Periscope.

This provides equal or superior sound to the Videomic Pro, and saved me well over a hundred pounds in the process. It also includes a deadcat and the new shock mount which I would have had to pay more for on the Videomic Pro. The small size of the microphone is great for the travelling film maker. The lack of the battery required really makes this a great microphone as you don't have to worry about the battery draining.
The warranty is for only 2 years, compared to the Videomic Pro's 10 years. However, I don't think the target buyer for this product will use it or abuse it as much as one might with the other model so this may not be an issue. This microphone sounds great with the deadcat, but without sounds like a... dead cat. The capsule is so sensitive that it is unusable without the shield.
If you're looking at this microphone you've most likely looked at the Videomic Go. All I can say is that looking at reviews and reading articles, the Videomic Go sounds awful in comparison - not to mention this model is cheaper.
Works very well on my Canon 600d, and I can't recommend it enough!
Regretfully after posting a good review of this product I have to report a failure. Having had it for around six months, with occasional use, the loop frame holding the mike, snapped on one side at the peak of the arc. One YouTube reviewer mentions the apparent fragility of this frame but assumed, as I did, it was up to the job. I've tried to get hold of a replacement but with no luck and repairing it with epoxy resin did not work. Perhaps a wire embedded in the plastic would have prevented the breakage
I have deducted two stars.
