Clear, directional audio on the GO! Compact and light weight by design, the VideoMic GO delivers clear, crisp, directional audio with incredible ease of use. Its tight pickup area focuses directly in front of the microphone and reduces other surrounding sounds, ensuring that your subject is isolated from distracting background noise. The integrated Rycote Lyre shock mount isolates your microphone from bumps and vibrations that could otherwise interfere with your sound. 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. The VideoMic GO has no complicated switches or settings and is powered by your camera's external microphone input, requiring no batteries to operate, ensuring you never miss a great shot. The VideoMic GO is designed and made in Australia.

-Doesn't need batteries or power cable
-Brilliant audio quality
-Can produce hissing sound
So how does it sound? I tried it on a wedding recently and have to say I was quite surprised. It was a lot better than expected. Full clear vocals and no background hiss. It wasn't a difficult test as I was within 3 to 4 yards of the couple most of the time but sensitivity seemed good. The speeches were put out over a PA system but this was also recorded nice and clearly.
I'll definitely be using it permanently.
Cons: This goes for all brand name manufacturers and not just Rode but the price is ridiculously high for a condenser capsule stuck in a bit of plastic tube.
Pros: Lightweight, Good sensitivity, Clear vocals, No hiss.
I've just seen some of the other reviews which mention that hiss is produced. This is most likely from poor pre amps in the camera. For info mine is plugged into a JVC pro video camera so is likely to have a good pre amp and I have no problems with hiss. It may be worth you borrowing a plug in power mic to test your pre amp for hiss prior to purchase.
Packaging is robust, no assembly required other than plugging in the coiled lead, light weight, hotshoe mount also has a tripod screw mount underneath but requires a step up adapter. Sound quality: with a dead cat is clear and directional, which helps to avoid unwanted background noise and wind reduction is excellent as long as wind is not blowing directly into the front of the mic.
Flimsy Construction feels like a toy rather than a prosumer product. Requires phantom power, not a huge issue as I bought it for my Canon DSLR however it didn't work plugged into my laptop mic socket. I also use it with a zoom H2n which suppliers phantom power and connected to the Zoom it's excellent.
I have read reveiws stating that it is no better than some built in microphones which I can relate to but when working further away from the camera it surpasses my built in microphone by a mile. Especially when outdoors in windy conditions.
Picks up clear quality recording which sounds so professional when editing.
I have used the mic in various locations soon to be used at a few festivals and concerts. So far no complaints.
I was blown away with how crisp the sound was! Far better than the 3 little holes the gopro tells me are microphone holes. Boy, I can tell you this much, you can hear the cat fart in the other room with this microphone, assuming you point it at the cat through the wall that is.
All in all, I recommend this as a great way to not sound like a gargling ogre in a blender when shooting videos. My videos are still garbage, but at least they sound good.
As there is no gain control you have to use the inbuilt camera gain and this just leads to an unbearable hiss.
I know this is a combination of both camera and mic but it's just unusable if you want professional quality audio conveniently.
