Opteka VM-2000 Metal Stereo Video Shotgun Microphone with Shock Mount for Digital SLR Cameras & CamcordersOpteka VM-2000 Metal Stereo Video Shotgun Microphone with Shock Mount for Digital SLR Cameras & Camcorders
The VM-2000 DSLR Stereo Microphone is a compact highly directional microphone intended for use with DSLR cameras. The VM-2000 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-2000 features a detachable coiled cable with a 1/8 (3.5mm) terminated connection and includes a shockmount holder with shoe.

What's in the box ~ VM-2000 Shotgun Microphone ~ Shock mount ~ Coiled 3.5mm cable ~ 1 Year warranty ~ User guide
Pros: It sort of works I guess? It is semidirectional, also. Body of microphone is metal and very sturdy, feels substantial.
Cons: It has two options on the rear of the camera where one gives so-so tinny sounding audio and the other gives great sounding audio with loud clicking sounds every couple sounds. Also, zero amplification/volume options. It's overall extremely underwhelming. I would say anyone is better off spending money elsewhere on this one.
