abunda_amazon_reviews I have a YouTube channel "TechSavvyBuyer" and having a high quality shotgun mic is a necessity. My go to mic has always been the Rode VideoMic Go, a $80 microphone that gets the job done well but needs a fair amount of post-processing to get the audio "just right". This microphone is a game changer! It is not only cheaper but it also has a few additional features that I think are totally worth it. Lets take a look at the pro's and cons. PROs: Excellent Build Quality Includes a travel case and wind muff filter (very nice touch and excellent quality - doesnt feel or look cheap at all) Price is perfect Adjustable db level via 2xAAA batteries Mic Sensitivity is perfect for vlogging and YouTubing Low Cut Filter is great! SOUND QUALITY IS FANTASTIC! Cons: 3.5mm cable is built-in. If this gets destroyed or frayed this mic is pretty much useless Batteries required for the mic to work, if you're out of batteries you're out of luck Need to turn the Mic "on" for it to work (i forgot to do this once and shot a whole video without audio - needless to say it was a PIA!) Conclusion: This mic is a solid and totally worth 4 stars. I docked one star because the 3.5mm cable cannot be changed for another and the fact that the mic doesnt work without batteries, compared to the Rode Video Mic Go which doesnt need batteries. The main thing that matters however is the sound quality, which is fantastic! I dont have to do as much post processing with this mic and it has made itself into a solid addition among my camera gear. If you need a decent mic and are on a budget, you will be happy with your purchase of this.;;Reviewed in the United States on March 5, 2019;;4.0 out of 5 stars;;Forget The RODE VIDEO MIC GO - GET THIS INSTEAD!;;TechSavvyBuyer;;/gp/customer-reviews/R39JOR8SZQLADR/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B07L8YNH6N;;;This microphone performed better than I expected. I should not be surprised because I have several Comica products and I like them all. It has a low cut filter function to reduce the background frequencies and a +10db function that increases the sensitivity. For those who don't understand it makes it louder lol. It has a manual on-off switch so you have to remember to turn the mic on or you won't get any audio. The mic is powered by two triple-A batteries that are not included. It does come with a dead cat wind muff. Overall the mic sounds good to me. I have two Rode mics, a Movo and a Comica lav system as well as other mics. The Comica CVM-V30 PRO is a good mic and is not designed to compete with the Rode so it is not to compare. With that said it is a quality mic for the price and is great if you don't have the budget to spend hundreds of dollars. If I had any complaints it would be that it takes batteries and triple-A at that but since I already had rechargeable ones on hand it is not a problem. I would also prefer that the wire jack be detachable like the rode mic mini or the Movo but those are not big deals for me.

Side by side with the Rode VideoMic and the baby brother VideoMicro I found the Comica to have a crisper sound than the Rodes as the Rodes are a bit bass heavy. The Comica does have the ability to boost the gain by 10dB with an external switch, which I found very helpful. Increasing the gain on the mic vs. in camera provided much cleaner audio. I ran a few tests outside at the beach on a typical windy day, and the low pass filter did a great job even without the dead cat (fuzzy windscreen) but adding the dead cat cut out the wind completely. The Comica dead cat is very fuzzy, and I did have to reposition it to keep it out of the shot when using the wider angles, but that's quickly done with its cold-shoe mount. I ran a few tests using an external audio recorder and found that the noise floor (hiss) between the Comica and the Rode was only about 2dB louder in the Comica. Both performed equally well in isolating the side sounds as well as picking up sounds in the distance when pointed directly to the source. The Comica's shock mount outperformed the Rode's mount significantly. Both did a great job isolating sounds when touching the camera, however, when walking around and moving the camera, you definitely heard the Rode moving in its mount, and I never heard anything from the Comica.

Two, I was not aimed directly at them. That being said, the sound quality is great I just wish there was more of my grandfather's voice and less of the kids on the swings. My situation was also not ideal because there was a building and mountain cliffs helping to echo the sound of the kids playing. Now let me get onto my review. I love the red spring, whatever you call it, that helps avoid movement noise. So much smarter than the little rubber bands that snap and never work that well in the first place! I love the wind Moss. That did get tried in very windy conditions and even though I picked up some kids playing I didn't get any wind noise! I love the universal shoe mount that you can also put on a tripod. the sound quality is great even though the cancellation didn't work as well as I hoped, but I now realize the circumstances weren't perfect. The only other downside is that it uses a three-prong TRS 3.5 mm audio jack, and the camera I use most often, the Sony a6000, doesn't have a microphone in. I would use it with my smartphone but I need a converter to trrs 4 prong. However, most DSLR cameras that have a microphone in Jack will fit this trrs 3-prong audio jack. Great product! I'm really impressed.
