I wasn’t really surprised with the quality – clear sound, wide dynamic range, impressive stereo separation and low background noise – traditional RØDE hallmarks

I tried the smartLav with an iPhone 5, an iPad, and an HTC Desire (Android) phone, and achieved excellent results with all three. For a £40 mic, the RØDE smartLav turned in a very credible performance and can be recommended.

The Videomic Pro microphone performed very well in temperatures ranging from +40 deg and over 90% humidity to below freezing point. One battery lasted the entire one month shoot.

As RØDE Rec LE is free and RØDE Rec only costs £3.99, there’s little point in using anything else.

I shot all of the material hand-held, positively inviting handling noise. But there wasn’t any. Even when deliberately waving the camera around the Lyre suspension did its job. Compare this to using the camera mic, which picks up any contact with the camera body or lens.

Well-made onmidirectional microphones are supposed to sound pretty even, with no on- or offaxis frequency lobes. I spent some time moving around the capsule in search of beams, peaks and nulls but found no axial anomalies. The RØDE Reporter is a lightweight, but solid piece of gear.

Great mic and you guys are second to none for customer service!

The RØDE NTG3 is a beautiful sounding mic, very versatile, and appears to be well made to handle the abuse of being a location audio shotgun.
