The Rode VideoMic GO is a Compact and light weight by design, the VideoMic GO delivers clear, crisp, directional audio with incredible ease of use.

Its tight pickup area focuses directly in front of the microphone and reduces other surrounding sounds, ensuring that the user can isolate their subject from distracting background noise.

At only 73gm (2.5oz) it is RØDE’s lightest on-camera microphone and sports an impressively compact form factor.

Designed to be as user-friendly as possible, the VideoMic GO has no switches or settings, and is powered by the camera or recording device’s external microphone input, requiring no batteries to operate.

The microphone features an integrated suspension based on Rycote’s Lyre system, which utilises a single piece of thermoplastic to isolate the microphone from knocks and bumps that could otherwise interfere with performance.

In addition to its superior performance the Lyre system is hard-wearing and will never wear out, sag or snap, unlike traditional elastic-based suspension.

“The VideoMic GO is the perfect microphone for consumers wanting to get started shooting high-definition video with their DSLR, ‘point-and-shoot’ or even GoPro cameras.” Commented Damien Wilson, RØDE’s Global Marketing & Sales Director. “We’ve all experienced how terrible the audio can be using a camera’s built-in microphone, and the VideoMic GO is the answer to getting audio that matches the quality of the images, without the additional EQ and level features that are available on our other VideoMic models.”

“This user-friendly ‘plug and play’ approach, combined with its lightweight, small form factor make it ideal for carrying in small camera bags, ready at any time to capture the moment.”

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mike on the go. Good option for small rigs - reasonable sound,no battery required - but needs power from camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and cheap option for DSLR MIC This product is great for people who don't like DSLR camera inbuilt audio which in my opinion sucks. This mic gives you way better audio quality.
Best thing is that it doesn't need batteries and there is no on and off switch which helps in case you record and forgot to turn the button on. The built is nice way better that VIDEOMIC PRO, and the quality is good for the price tag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from VideoMic Go good. Mounting system feels a bit more rugged than the Video Mic Pro I replaced with. Plus no need for separate battery a plus. It is sensitive to wind so a dead kitten recommended. I'm am using with a Panasonic GH4 and don't have buzz issues, which I was very happy to discover. Good value for $.
