Hi looking for a mic that could plug straight into the mic jack of a T3i. I will be using this mic for indoor and outdoor interviews.

Thanks.

I just got one! Haven't put it through its paces yet but planning on it next week.

FYI, if you do get one, make sure you register it for 10 year warranty and also a free PluralEyes license key:

Go for a digital recorder such as Zoom H1 instead of mic.

The two devices are radically different and not compairible at all. One is a shotgun style mic and the other has a pair of unidirectional condenser microphones. So a Zoom H1 isn't a better substitute for shotgun mic. Especially if reach is what you need.

Great choice.

I ended up going with the Rode Stereo VideoMic but the whole line are great and reasonably inexpensive solutions for enhancing the internal mic for basic video.

One thing I've done is buy some extensions so I can put the mic on a stand near the action and back the camera way up if needed. I do this for things like school plays and such where I don't want to get the whole kit in front of the action but do want good sound...
