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 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.
I have yet to compare it with similar mic's (meaning DSLR specific mic's as this is still the only one in it's class that has the ability to record) but the build, the functionality the display are all perfect...
This mic definitely improves sound pickup in the field. Im using it with the optional Fur Windjammer windscreen and it makes a tremendous difference in wind noise reduction.My only observation is that using24-bit/48kHz to record voice generates a much larger file than needed, but I guess Shure...
I got this microphone for a Sony AX-53 camcorder + Canon 5D MK3 and I'm very satisfied with it. I film mainly smaller concerts, interviews and documentaries. For interviews this microphone is a big help.
I use this mic and recorder for DSLR video, but more often I use it for simultaneous audio reporting and still shooting. The option to record straight to the mic makes this possible. This is a really hot mic that reaches out and grabs your subject.
I use it for outdoor live events and field interviews. It is not perfect, but after (2) clicks of sound adjustments it is just about perfect. The fact that the sound recorded on the internal memory card is so good is what is best. Keep the card slightly high and the camera slightly low.
I'm returning this after a lot of frustration. It is solid, yes that's true. But the battery compartment is fiddly. And worse, I feel like the sound quality is not good. It picks up absolutely everything and even when the meters say it is not peaking, the voice I recorded sounded awful.
