I tried the Rode VideoMic Pro Plus with my Nikon 850 Camera. I found that the quality of sound with the Mic is not that better than when I used to shoot video using the Camera internal Mic. I tried all the option. It is true that it can reduce the background sounds but unfortunately giving less improvement with Rode than the case when using the Camera mic
I'd like to know if the mic is any good, problem is it doesnt work.... 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.
If you want to shoot video with your camera, and audio is remotely important, then get one of these. Sound quality is a huge step up from in-camera mics, and with an extension cable you can use it as a boom mic if you need.
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.
No doubt this microphone is one of the best in the market so far. Great flexibility and easy plug/play in your camera. It's also a good back up microphone if you record audio externally. The auto-on/off and the new recording functions make a strong case to buy it. -> 4.5 Stars
I received it the first time and the foam was a bit damaged. The customer service sent me another one and the result was similar. The customer service went the extra mile and tried to make it right all the time. They even sent me return tags as I didn't have any printer handy during the lockdown. Nothing to complain about them. They took all the rights steps and attitude. Thanks for this. -> 5 Stars
It's just unfortunately a weak packaging from the manufacturer for such an expensive product. This means that the foam can be slightly damaged and in theory after few days should regain the shape but it's not always the case as you can see on the photo/video. Again, the seller was great, it's just Rode that they need to invest in better packaging for future releases. -> 2.5 Stars
Extremely impressed with this Microphone. I use it for frequently for an episodic series on YouTube (channel is War Mysteries if you want to hear the quality) and in conjunction with my Canon DSLR, produces beautiful clear directional sound.
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.
Bought to upgrade the sound on my Sony AX-53 camcorder. I’ve been using a Rode Videomicro which was great but I always felt that there was room for improvement. 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.
After using the Rode Video Micro for my YouTube and client videos, I thought it was time to upgrade my audio. I needed a high-quality audio source that would help me produce better content with my Canon M50.
One of the most common issues I’ve found with previous microphones is forgetting to turn them off and then batteries run out. This is why I love the automatic power feature which turns the microphone on and off when the camera is turned on and off.
With the power for the mic you have several options with either the rechargeable battery, AA’s, or constant Micro USB power. This is really useful as it means there will be very few opportunities where the mic is out of power.
I also really like the variety of features that the mic has. This includes the high pass filter, gain modes, and safety channel. The best of these for me is the +20dB mode as my camera doesn’t have the best preamps. This gives me the opportunity to have really good quality sound.
Overall, this is a really good, professional microphone with some great features. I’m yet to find something that I’m not a fan of with this microphone and look forward to using it for several years. This is certainly a microphone that I would recommend to others.
