Reviews around size (4.75 of 5)

  • The size is smallest I've seen, except if you were to have a lavaliere mic, but the compact size and sound quality makes this a great budget purchase
  • Using it on a Panasonic G7, great sound, compact size and no batteries to worry about.
  • A longer microphone would have been in the shot, so the size of this mic works great for small cameras
  • Perfect size for my a6300 and definitely an improvement over on-board mic.
  • Dislike : size for vlogging, i knew it would be bigger than its smaller brother but it is only once on the camera and using it arms extended or traveling that you realize size might be why you would stop using it at some point..

  • but if you're looking for something affordable and significantly better than the audio your camera probably has, this is a great buy
  • Really a great buy with the shock mount and dead cat (which really does kill wind noise).
  • At $60 price point it’s a great buy to enhance your video quality
  • I wanted to let people know that this is a great buy for the

Reviews around job (4.44 of 5)

  • This microphone does a great job at reducing that wind noise
  • This piece of garbage made me lose a job
  • So if my mic that I got did actually work it does a poor job at making audio sound any better if not at all
  • Overall a good product, and although a bit overpriced does the job well
  • It does a great job of recording the sound while taking out all external wind and such

Reviews around product (3.87 of 5)

Reviews around thing (3.76 of 5)

  • Love this thing I can set up shop anywhere and get the best quality recording
  • While not as good as having a mic attached to the person speaking, this Rode microphone has been the next best thing.)
  • My one complaint is the tiny thing only comes with a *huge* deadcat wind muff, and there do not seem to be options for a small, foam wind muff like I would prefer
  • The good thing about this microphone is that you don't need to have any kind of power source to use it
  • i have nothing but good things to say, well, only 1 thing: when the mic is attached to my cellphone, and the wireless or data (either one) is turned on, the microphone will actually pick up the sound of data being transmitted and received.i actually "returned" because i thought it was picking up some kind of weird noise.

Reviews around cat (1.48 of 5)

  • The "dead cat" was very useful and minimized a lot of wind noise during our shoot in downtown DC on a windy day
  • The wind noise canceling dead cat (more like a dead gerbil) works like a pro.
  • I didn't pick up too much background noise and the dead cat fits and works perfectly
  • The wind noise canceling dead cat (more like a dead gerbil) works like a pro.
  • Would recommend one of those dead cat looking wind covers.

Reviews around hiss (1.37 of 5)

  • This MIC is a really good MIC in recording high quality, crisp sound, but sometimes when there is no dialogue, and there is an action that doesn't have much sound, like a door opening and closing, there can be quite a loud hiss in the background
  • They sound like a motor they purr sound loud, but the hissing from this mic is so loud you can even hear the purr
  • Although the sound from the Comica vm10ii mic was good, the hiss was so loud, I had to lower the cameras preamps to extremely so levels so the audio became too low
  • When using the on board mic on my devices it got pretty good audio (if i yelled) but there was this annoying hissing sound (white noise)
  • I'm writing this one-star review after another frustrating video editing session where nothing I just shot is useable due to the LOUD hissing sound from the mic
