I am just starting out with my 7D and know that from the Immersion Seminar from Bruce Dorn I just went to, that the internal audio on the 7d isn't great.

Has anyone got any experience with adding an external mic? I am currently looking at the RĂ˜DE VideoMic Pro. But this is one of those "ask a lot of questions, before you buy" type things.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I'm looking at the same exact mic, would love to hear some feedback on it.

The 'Pro' version of the Rode is pretty new so I doubt there'll be too many who've tried it. Here's the only thread I've seen about it.
