For a little bit less money, you can get the Sony ECM-ALST1 http://www.adorama.com/ISOECMALST1.html that someone on this forum (but I don't remember who...) already use.

What's interesting about the Rode is that is appears to almost defeat the auto gain (but not quite). Outdoors, the internal mics are much crisper and very clear in rendering treble sounds. The Rode is much warmer (but our living cat wanted to attack the 'dead cat' and nearly brought the camera down off a worktop after I'd been outdoors testing the furry overcoat).
The Rode has to be remounted with the shoe moved, involves turning it round completely in the mount. Otherwise, it hits your forehead. The normal mounting pushes it right back.
I'm also thinking of getting an external mic for a video camera so am interested in the options - I already have a
mic that I could add a new capsule to which would be a starting point.
By the way, the adorama link points to specifications that make no sense at all (pattern and S/N ratio).
