Amazon offers the Rode VideoMic GO Lightweight On-Camera Microphone with Integrated Rycote Shockmount for $68 shipped. Normally $100, this is a new all-time low that we’ve tracked. Most built-in mics on DSLRs aren’t very good, and this is a great way to capture quality audio without spending a fortune. Rated 3.8/5 stars from thousands.

Though this will up your audio game, kill the wind noise by putting a screen or “dead cat” on your mic. It’s just another $20 Prime shipped and will make sure your sound is on point.

Rode VideoMic GO Microphone features:

  • High-quality directional microphone
  • No battery required
  • Rode’s lightest mic at only 73g. All of our microphones in the VideoMic range have a standard thread built into the bottom of the cold shoe mount for connection to a boom pole, mic stand or tripod
  • Includes windshield and integrated cold-shoe mount with 3/8” thread
