Looking for the best mics for Canon RP? Here are our top recommended mics for your Canon RP.
In addition to its 26MP sensor, the Canon EOS RP is one of the lightest and most cheap full-frame mirrorless cameras available on the market. Despite the fact that the camera captures outstanding 1080p and 4K footage, Dual Pixel Autofocus is not accessible while recording in 4K resolution. If this is a feature that is vital to you, you should probably consider upgrading to the more costly EOS R.
Another feature that makes it popular among filmmakers is the articulating screen on the back of the camera. Along with the ability to record yourself (for YouTube or vlogs), it may also be utilized in other contexts, such as interviews or weddings, to capture moments.
If you intend to use this camera for more sophisticated purposes, the built-in microphone will not be enough, and we recommend that you purchase an additional microphone to supplement it. The following are the best microphones for Canon RP.

Rode VideoMic Pro+
3 used from $294.92
The VideoMic Pro+ is a wonderful choice if you are looking for a high-end microphone that sounds terrific and has a slew of useful additional capabilities. Rode is a well-established firm, and the Pro+ is one of their more recent microphones, which provides us with a number of capabilities that the older VideoMic Pro (more on that later) does not. However, the main difference between the new and old models is in new features such as a built-in battery that can be recharged, an auto-on and off feature (the mic turns off automatically when the camera is turned off), and a high-pass filter that helps reduce low-frequency audio, to name a few examples. Overall, if you have the means to afford it, this is a fantastic microphone to have.
Deity V-Mic D3 Super-Cardioid Directional Shotgun Microphone
The Rode V-Mic D3 Pro and the V-Mic D3 Pro are quite similar in appearance to one another. A rechargeable battery is also included, as well as a function that turns it on and off automatically. It also has a gain adjustment dial on the rear, which is a unique feature that may be extremely beneficial.
Describe the most significant difference between this microphone and Rode’s Pro+ microphone. For starters, this one is a little less expensive, and the audio that comes out of these mics is a little different. The VideoMic Pro+ has a strong bass response, whereas this microphone is more balanced.
It’s difficult to say which one is superior because this is a highly subjective decision. A second noteworthy feature of this microphone is that it can be used with a laptop or smartphone as well, thanks to the inclusion of a clever TRRS connection.
On-camera microphones like these are among the most established products on the market, and they’ve been one of the most popular options among videographers for a long time. It sounds fantastic, perhaps a little less so than the more costly Pro+, but that’s acceptable given the price difference.
It also misses several of the most recent features. There is no auto-power-on/off feature, nor is there a built-in battery in this model. A 9V battery powers it, however, to be quite honest, it lasts quite a long time under normal use. Overall, this microphone is still a good choice (particularly if you prefer the Rode brand), but the V-Mic D3 Pro provides better value for a slightly higher price point.
Rode VideoMicro Compact
If you want to upgrade the sound quality and noise reduction capabilities of your camera’s built-in microphone, the Rode VideoMicro ultracompact camera microphone would be the perfect choice for you. The microphone has a 3′′ diameter and weighs 1.5 pounds, making it extremely portable. As a result, you would have no difficulty transporting it.
In order to capture sound from directly in front of it, the Rode VideoMicro is constructed with a cardioid polar pattern, which attenuates sound that enters from behind. The RF waves are blocked by the lightweight aluminum body, and the ceramic coating lowers glare. As I said in my Rode VideoMicro review, it is small, robust, and does not require any additional power, making it an excellent choice for journalists and vloggers that use the Canon EOS RP camera.
