I've been using this bundle for few commercial productions now, and I've been delighted about the quality of Rode's VideoMic.
Last thing I used this bundle was a guerilla-style commercial production of local community. There was no point at using "professional" equipment due light budjet and fast pace of work, so we just used VideoMic to record basically everything straight into our DSLR. Of course theres quite a lot of noise because of the automatic gain of the DSLR to remove, but I am still quite satisfied.
New VideoMic shockmount is also better than the old version was. It reduces much more handling noise than the old one.
I bought this as I have been producing small short films for college. The sound quality on this is ten times better than any onboard micorophone on a camera. If you are really looking into getting a more professional sound in your spoken audio , whether it be for a film , youtube, vlog, or even just plain voice recordings , this is a great place to start. Be warned though this is a barebones device there are no bells and whistles here.
