RODE Videomicro unboxing and real world review

For my latest YouTube video I unbox and roadtest the Rode Videomicro, one of Rode's great, and powerful, microphones for cameras, vlogging and generally recording sound.

Right out of the box I was impressed with the build quality - I was expecting this thing to be plastic but it actually feels like aluminium maybe, it's got a nice weight to it and feels really solid. The Videomicro comes with a windscreen (or deadcat) and their Rycote® Lyre® shock mount. It's basically a great value little bundle that's certain to improve your audio in indoor and outdoor situations.

Read the full spec here.

I took it out to Stanage Edge in the Peak District and mounted it to my Nikon D7100 to test the audio capabilities. You'll be amazed at the difference...!

You can watch my full review below and if you want to buy one you can get them from Amazon.
