Have been browsing for a good shotgun microphone and found the brilliant Rode Video Mic Go was on special with Amazon AU. The 3 camels website reporting this to be the cheapest. Its cheaper than some of the used ones in market place, so time to snatch this bargain.
The VideoMic GO is compact and lightweight by design and delivers clear, crisp, directional audio with incredible ease of use. Its tight pickup area focuses directly in front of the microphone and reduces other surrounding sounds, ensuring that your subject is isolated from distracting background noise. The integrated Rycote Lyre shock mount isolates your microphone from bumps and vibrations that could otherwise interfere with your sound. Constructed from a single piece of hard-wearing thermoplastic, the Lyre provides superior acoustic suspension to traditional elastic solutions and will never wear out, sag or snap. It has no complicated switches or settings and is powered by your camera's external microphone input, requiring no batteries to operate, ensuring you never miss a great shot.
