We do a lot of run and gun stuff and this mic works very well for that. We drop it on top of our 4/3 or video camera and go. It picks up a bit more background noise than our Rode videopro but it hones in nicely on the voice.

When it was received , it was tried on a Canon 7D mark ii and it seems to work very well. I have had no opportunity to use it due to rain and other compromises. I am sure it will perform better than expected and much better than the internal microphone.

I chose this over the rode videomic and am very pleased with it. The sound quality is great, easy to use and set up, feels more solid and durable than the rode mics and accessing the battery is much easier than the rode as well.

The VP83 fits nicely on my Panasonic HDC-HS700 camcorder, leaving both the ZOOM lever and photo button accessible. It uses one AA size battery and, with an Alkaline battery, has 130 hrs life. It has a low battery indicator. The battery is very easy to install or replace.

I use this on my Sony A7S. I've always been a fan of Shure and this one doesn't disappoint

So far Im impressed with this little mic. I need something small to fit on top of my A6300 I have a nice Rode mic but the thing looks absolutely ridiculous. The size is perfect for the camera and the sound is pretty good for its size. I have also tested the mic with the dead cat.

Just used this for an engagement shot on my secondary DSLR. For one of the two clients the sound was good. Not so much for the second who was a foot or so further away done as a second shot. In studio use and sound has been very good, but not as good as using a lav mic on the client.
