Best Rode Mic for my applications?
Mar 4, 2013

I am a novice at what I do. I have started using my Nikon d600 for a variety of things. While the Nikon's internal mic is decent at what it does, I would like to get better sound quality. I have decided on a Rode (mostly because of this forum and the reviews on other sites). What Rode mic is best for the following applications:

- Live music (solo acoustic and full band in both indoor and outdoor loud settings)

- Family home videos

- Home demo vids of acoustic guitar and loud electric rig

- Action sports such as water skiing from the boat.

- Tripod/monopod and hand held applications, 99% mounted on camera.

I can afford the $300 asking price of the newest stereo vicdeomic pro, but do I really need it? Thanks for any help.
