Suggestions for External Mic on 60D
Mar 23, 2012

Hi All:

I will be using my 60D to video an outside event in a couple of weeks. I know I need an external mic. I have done some research and found suggestions for:

(1) Rode VideoMic Directional Video Condenser Microphone w/Mount at around $149 plus $30 for their Rode Deadcat Wind Muff

(2) Rode VideoMic Pro VMP Shotgun Microphone at around $229 plus $30 for Rode Deadcat Wind Muff
(3) Other comparable suggestions?

I do not do much video but this upcoming event is important and I can use the mic at other times also. I would like to keep cost as low as possible but do want a good mic.

Any help picking a mic would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Harold

P.S. Besides the mic and the wind muff, is there anything else I need to get to make sure I get good audio (eg, adapters for the 60D -- if necessary, etc)

P.P.S There will almost certainly be some wind and I will probably be 10-15 feet away from the audio source (human voice).
