Voice pickup distance won't necessarily change with a better mic. The further you are from mic, the closer your audio level comes to the ambient noise (voice is 3dB down for every doubling of distance from mic).

I think the mic sounds good when you're close and you should stick with it. Try it out a few times. Looking forward to a trip report made with it.

As far as wind goes, keep the dead cat on even if it doesn't seem windy. If your video software allows, insert a roll-off around 60Hz (high pass). Most wind noise is quite a bit lower than anything you want in your video. If you can bring the rolloff point higher (100-140Hz) without affecting your program material, you might get rid of even more wind noise.

Your phone or video software may have 60Hz HPFs fixed already.

Thanks for the tips Neil. Yes I think as it is this will be a big improvement for me. I will do a few more tests with exact distance measurements, but probably if I find the need to be too far away from the camera on a regular basis I will find myself a wireless mic. Right now I do have a good lav mic that has a 20 foot cable on it.

I currently don't do any preprocessing on my videos so I don't even know what a "rolloff" is ;-) But I'll look into it.
