I was looking at that one pretty hard. Cant find a bad review of it. My Camera is old and I may have to DIY how it mountsHands down the Rode Micro. Be sure it has a windscreen, looks like fur, for the wind noise and you'll be golden. That's what I use on all my professional cameras for jobs. Small, doesn't take any external batteries or have on/off switches and it sounds great.
I control the gain completely out of my camera. I’ve had issues with on mic gain control and how it works with the in camera gain. Seemed always best to leave the gain at 0 on the mic and set the gain inside the camera anyways. I definitely know how to use my camera/audio equipment and for the money, weight, size and quality the Micro is pretty damn hard to beat.Is there no gain available on the Micro? I ask because I have the VideoMic Pro and find the different gain settings to be pretty useful. As with all gear I think learning to use it will enhance your experience. In my experience the microphones aren't just plug and play...as in you can get better results with a little effort and learning.
