Spectacular sound reproduction
I use this RODE 'Video-Mic" to receive specific sounds on my daughters Volleyball team during tournaments for downloading her videos onto her scholarship website.
It was presented to me by others, that I could improve the videos with sound,(of which I was leaving out... to me, it was incredibly, distracting) so this could allow College Scouts to hear my daughter give commands on the court (she, being a libero) It was critical to hear her voice. Me, being somewhat close to the action 10-15 ft. (usually), I was able to pick up her voice commands much easier with this shotgun mic arrangement, than with my standard mic, on-board the GOPRO. It works great isolating all the extraneous sounds (latterly) and receiving good quality sound from (in my case), My daughters voice in front of me. I actually modified the mic slightly with the use of a cardboard piece placed on the sides of the mic (somewhat like 'barn-doors" on studio lighting which toned down the side sounds to almost zero. all the video is shot indoors, so I never use the "dead-cat" but I have used it, on different occasions with perfect results, of no wind noise. Super simple to use, just plug it in to the GoPro mic adapter since it uses the cameras battery system and great sound lays on the sound track of the video. this mic. is extremely tough, through being well built, (all aluminum case), A very good value for my specific application,
