Rode VideoMic Pro

Rode Microphones already have a video mic (the VideoMic [$149.00]) that's been popular with a lot of DSLR users, and now they have released the VideoMic Pro [$229.00], which is smaller and lighter, with a redesigned shockmount. The +20dB mode improves gain for recording on some cameras.

Philip Bloom says:
It’s smaller than the VIdeo Mic, the perfect size for your DSLR, has better rubber bands for suspension and overall sounds A LOT better
