Rode VideoMic

Rode VideoMic and 5D MkII in action during a Gaza demo
Those who read the second part of my review of the Canon 5D MkII will know that my microphone of choice for this camera is the Rode VideoMic.
I gave a little interview to Rode about my experiences with their products and why I have chosen the VideoMic as my preferred audio equipment. You can read it here.


  1. Ironically enough I've been researching mics for my mark II all day. I came to the conclusion that the Rode video mic is probably the best choice and then I read your endorsement and it pushed me over the edge. I'm going to buy one tomorrow. By the way I love Muse, a wonderful first film. Here's a link to my first attempt.

    I made this at a workshop out in Mississippi, it was filmed using a mixture of footage from the 5D mark II and a Canon XHA-1s. It was a fun challenge blending the two types of footage together. Well, that's for now. Keep up the great work!

  2. Glad you found the post useful; the Rode VideoMic is absolutely the best mic for the 5D MkII - enjoy!!
    Thanks for the kind words about Muse. I really liked your film too. Very nicely done mate.

  3. I'm an avid reader of your blog, one of the best out around on the web - i read your first review of the 5d Mark 2 which you hinted on the rode video mic - that alone was enough for me to go and order on so this second review is very welcomed.



  4. Many thanks for your very kind words Adam; much appreciated.

  5. What Windscreen are you using on that picture?
