 I am mainly concerned with its use on DSLR's and bridge cameras like the Canon SX60 HS which is my bread and butter Nature video camera and was used on most of the videos on this YouTube channel.

I felt I needed an external microphone for three reasons - in this order - 1) especially with age and hard use all electronic super-zoom bridge cameras like the Canon SX60 will produce very annoying noises during zoom in and out operations that really sounds amateurish and needs to be edited out.  2) Wind noise - I just hate that loud wind roar that ruins many good videos and leads to putting music with the videos. and 3) to improve the overall sound quality of the videos.
