The Rode Stereo VideoMicX Broadcast-grade Stereo On-camera Microphone is a really good, and professional sounding XY mike, which can be camera mounted (I use mine with the Sony FS5). It has the gain and filters, and as well as a 3.5mm stereo jack has two mini XLR jacks which can be fed with phantom power. Otherwise needs a 9v battery to power the unit. The supplied wind dead cat works really well, though you need to lift the treble to counter the attenuation of HF sounds. Inside, the open mics are excellent. The unit is well constructed and carries a 10 year guarantee on registering. A really great piece of kit.
