Singer/Songwriter/Videographer Chad Johnson seems like a fun and friendly guy. I’m glad he made this very enjoyable shootout that at the same time is very informative for us dslr videographers. In this test Chad compares the:
– Sennheiser MKE400
– Que Audio Micro Shotgun
– Rode VideoMic
– Rode VideoMic Pro
They’re all miniature shotgun mics with a 3.5mm connector that can make love with our hdslr cameras.
I’m very curious if the obviously better sounding Rode mics are actually better or if the other two are simply outputting a “RAW” signal that would have to be processed to make it sound nice afterwards. You knowledgable sound person tell us in the comments please.
