User Reviews

I've received the product couple days ago and the first impression was the best it could be. First class build quality, very friendly operation menu. I've already used it to record some interviews in noisy environments and the sound was crystal clear. Everything has been doing well.

While I prefer how the Rode Video Mic Pro sounds, its drawback is relying on often sub-par camera mic pre-amps. Not so, with the LensHopper VP83F. Plus, its not tied to your camera, so you can close mic your subject with a boom.

This is an awesome mic. It's rugged with all metal housing and is also lightweight. The plus side is having the micro SD card built in. That means you can both record in the mic and directly to your camera all at the same time.

I'm new to adding higher quality audio to my videos and it's remarkable the difference the LensHopper makes, especially outside with this Windjammer on it! Amazing!

I wish I would have purchased another mic like the rode. This one has very poor sound rejection from back and sides, and the audio quality is only decent. I do not advise this mic.

May well be that I don't have the right settings, but I haven't had much luck with this mic yet.

The sound quality is amazing and I'm very happy with this mic! The ability to record and save audio directly from the mic is very handy! I stuck it on a mono pod and used it as a wireless boom mic for fun too!
