A quick post about the new RØDE VideoMic Pro – was just announced over on Philip Bloom's blog – read about it now. We're trying not to duplicate news from other sources as you can read all of the news on the HDSLR news page – but we thought this was significant! And, this is awesome because the one thing that I didn't like about the old Rode Video Mic was that it stuck out the back of the camera. This is great news.
Update: only place I've found it online yet is B&H – tho they've just barely got a listing. They show price as $229.
Update 2: Found the DVeSTORE has a listing for the Pro mic – also showing $229 and “Expected release date is 31st Jan 2011”
