      Hey guys! I have a Sony HDR-FX7 camera and it doesn’t have any XLR inputs in it, it only has a mini plug. I’ve been looking at the Rode Videomic, and I’m receiving good feedback from it. How about you guys? Do you think that it’s a good mic for my camera? And it’s only $150 compared to other microphones out there.

      Tell me what you think! Thanks!

      BTW.. They also said that it was use for Paranormal Activity..

      It’s a GREAT mic for the price. It works, and is one of several mics I keep in my war chest.

      While I don’t own one yet, I have always heard good things about it.

      I also have one that i’ve been using on my FX1 for the past 3 years! it’s great the shock mount helps iliminate noise coming from the camera. as a rule I change the 9v battery every shoot

      Yes, it is a great mic for the price. Remember the secret to great audio is not the price of your mics: it is where you place them. Or where you can place them.

      Yep it’s a great mic. I bought mine on ebay for $120 and am really impressed with it and it’s a good price too. I’ve been using it for about a week now and can’t really think of anything bad to say about it.
