The VM-3000 DSLR Stereo Microphone is a compact highly directional microphone intended for use with DSLR cameras. The VM-3000 greatly improves the audio on DSLR cameras while its compact (4.5 inch) length makes it easy to mount and remain out of view. Its highly directional pickup, wide frequency response and stereo audio imagery are sure to suite the gamut of video capturing applications. The VM-3000 features a detachable coiled cable with a 1/8 (3.5mm) terminated connection and includes a shockmount holder with shoe.

This review is from: Opteka VM-3000 Metal Stereo Video Shotgun Microphone with Shock Mount for Digital SLR Cameras & Camcorders
Pros: Excellent directional sound, stereo imaging, clarity, and bass response.
Cons: Rubberband mounts are fragile. Kit comes with spares - needed them within a week of use.
Other Thoughts: Trip to Europe - run and gun intense usage caused rubber mounts to break. Otherwise, construction is solid. Sound is worth living with the shortcomings. Could use a factory dead cat option.
