Re: Looking for a video mic

You are viciously overthinking it.

your a beginner,  shooting simple family videos,  and you don’t want to sync in post.

stick a rode videomic of any description on top and your ahead of the game... use the pro with its 9volt power and your even better off. 
the in camera Pre amps can be noisy,  but don’t worry about it,  they are fine.

trust me on this,  we have like 4 of the 1 st  generation 9v videomics and even when we go straight into camera with them I find it difficult to see any real difference between those and our ntg2 mics.

the nice thing about those videomic pro’s is they make quite a tidy little boom mic,  ( we use them all the time on a boom either direct into camera or our tascams... so you can start on the roof straight into the camera,  then add a boom if you get keen,  and then add a zoom or tascam to record off camera if you want better quality and flexibility still.

so,  just get the videomic pro.  It’s more capable than you are!
