    Default Any experience with RØDE mics?

    At work we are in the process of buying camera + mic to shoot some product videos and fairs inside. Mainly machine use howtos for start. I'm also myself in process of upgrading to a DSLR, so I'm also planning to purchase one mic for myself.

    I see Rode lineup Go 60€ Videomic 90€ Pro 170€ and Pro Plus 290€. What would you guys recommend?

    The YT community is pretty well sold on RØDE mics. Two or Three of my favorite YT creators use them and seem to like them:

    The "Keiths" (Fenner and Rucker) seem to prefer the RØDE lapel Mics and FM Transmitters.

    Fenner is not impressed with Samson Airline:

    Our In-House Videographers are sold on RØDE as well.

    I'm the in-house videographer now besides my other duties of CIO, last minute documentation writer, translator and chauffeur for Russian chicks, Israelis and Brazilians. Which mic should I recommend boss to get, we've ordered Olympus OMD EM1 II.

    Abom79 (Adam Booth) uses a RØDE Pro Plus which is very good with extraneous background noise. If you watch these videos, they will do shots of machining operations with live voice overs and you can clearly hear him and the machine (many time the sounds the machine makes indicates how well it is cutting. Having a lathe and a mill myself, I can vouch for the audio quality from his videos to my shop equipment. I'm 49 now, and I still have pretty good range of hearing. Sony Or Olympus; you can't go wrong.

    I bought Videomic pro (not the plus) Rycote yesterday. I recorded some test video on noisy factory floor today and the speech is very good. You can hear bangs and clicks but it has very good control over noise.
