RODE VideoMic Pro Plus | Is it for YOU?

The new RODE VideoMic Pro Plus has some really cool upgrades.
The mic is fitted to both a Canon 80D and also a Sony RX10 and in this video I look at the new features but consider closely some of the issues raised by recent reviewers. This shotgun mic is setup on a boom for a lot of the dialogue and setup on the camera as you would use in the field.
