Hi latsbrah – the most important consideration when buying an external mic is microphone placement. If you do get the Rode, you should get it up on a boom and close to your talent. Here's why: http://wistia.com/learning/choosing-a-microphone
For a few dollars more than a $130 VIdeomic – you can get a $176 Videomic Boom Kit with a boom, a stand and 25 feet of cable.
Hope this is helpful and good luck!
