This mic was practically useless. It made almost no difference for the audio picked up when recording video off my Canon Rebel t7i. For the price it was a waste. I returned it for a powered mic which was amazing. Don't waste your money. Spend a few extra dollars and get a powered mic. I couldn't decide on the Rode VideoMic Pro or the ShureVP83. Ultimately went for the Shure VP83 and amazed at the audio pickup. If you need a mic in the first place, it probably means you need a powered mic. Read my review of the Shure VP83 microphone for a full explanation.
