    "Pretty run of the mill lens which is average for its class. If you buy it from the seller I did, it'll come loaded with accessories and gadgets to let you customize your photography experience. It's a bit pricey, which is why I think they throw the extras in, but it's not a bad value."

    "Absolutely crystal clear photography with this. I can't believe the difference after taking similar photos they were much clearer and seemed to benefit from a more steady picture. I don't use a tripod and free shoot so this is incredibly useful for me."

    "I love to take aerial photos but sometimes climbing trees can be a bit dangerous. With this aerial photography drone I am better able to do this with the comfort of a remote control. I have taken a few photos so far and they all look very professional and I can not say the same for other drones on the market. This one is well worth the price I am telling you right now. I feel like it is good even if some people are on the internet saying it is not, I am here to tell you these are bots because this has saved me a few times from being in danger taking my own aerial shots."

    "There are a number of Rode SVM models including VideoMic, VideoMic Pro , Rycote etc. You have to decide if the mic on your camera is not strong enough. On these models there are three settings for increased sensitivity, decreased sensitivity or standard sensitivity signified by the decibel gain. You might need to be careful to avoid ambient noises except for extremely quiet settings."

    "So far so good. Having tried the Shure lightning motiv, several lapel mics and own a blue yeti as well, I can say for portability and quality, this shotgun mic is amazing, possibly the best out there. It's currently mounted on a beast grip phone mount to a bendy joby tripod. Using a Rode trf to trrf adapter, then 3.5mm to lightning adapter, I've got it plugged into my iPhone 7"

    "I have decided to take a year off before heading to college and needed a tripod to take with me on several trips outside the US. The Panoramic dial provided consistent sweeping 360 pictures of all the landscapes I visited. On a side note, I dropped my iPhone X but purchased an Android devices since it was a cheaper option overseas. This tripod allowed me to use both during my excursions."
