    "The Rode VideoMic Pro is one of the best microphones for Canon 70D that I've come across. The mic's sound quality is excellent - it picks up a great amount of audio and without any of the hissing noises or other issues that accompany lesser models. I haven't really had any battery issues yet either, and I'm making to sure take good care of this in case I ever need to take advantage of the 10-year warranty."

    "Sennheiser MKE 400 was exectly what I needed for a documentary project I was working on. I decided to just make the investment since I needed a shotgun microphone anyway and I was not disappointed. The Sennheiser MKE 400 even has several feet of cord which is something I found other microphones lacked."

    "I found the microphone to be a little smaller than I expected too. But, it worked really well. There was also a nice bag and cover for the mic. It was pretty good."
