    At the heart of the VideoMic Pro is an all-new 1/2 inch condenser capsule that provides broadcast-quality audio via a 3.5mm minijack connector (outputting the mono signal to both left and right channels) with an incredibly low self-noise of just 14db. A super-cardioid polar pattern ensures that surrounding audio is minimised, and your recording is focused on the subject in front of the camera.
    The integrated Rycote® Lyre® based shock mounting system separates the VideoMic Pro capsule and electronics from its mount, providing isolation from external physical factors that may cause unwanted rumble and vibrations in the microphone. Constructed from a single piece of hard-wearing thermoplastic, the Lyre® provides superior acoustic suspension to traditional elastic solutions, and will never wear out, sag or snap.
    Easily accessible on the rear face of the microphone are the power, filter and level controls. In addition to the microphone's native 40Hz-20kHz response a selectable high-pass filter at 80Hz is available, which will prevent low end noise such as air conditioners and traffic from being recorded.
    Below these controls are the level settings, which attenuate or boost the recorded level as required. The -10dB level attenuation (or PAD) is ideal for recording loud sound sources, such as live music, motorsport, or interviews where the subject is very close to the camera. The +20dB level boost is designed for use with DSLR cameras, allowing the user to reduce the camera's preamp level (or mic-input level), effectively reducing the amount of noise generated by the camera's comparatively low quality audio circuitry.
    The microphone uses a standard sized shoe mount for on camera use, and features a 3/8 inch thread in the base of the mount for easy boom pole mounting.
    The VideoMic pro is battery powered, and provides over 70 hours recording from a single 9V battery.

I anticipate confirmation that I've bought an outstanding audio device. I will know more when I have had a chance to use it in different environments.
The ease of use, the short connection is perfect. Light weight, yet robust, is the perfect combination for use with a tripod mounted Canon 5D III

I have used the Rode Videomic Pro once so far so a bit early to to really assess but so far so good.
