Video mics usually only record audio coming from the front, but the Deity V-Mic D4 Duo is "the world's first dual direction video microphone" – enabling you to record audio from both sides of the camera.

Unless you have the budget (and manpower) of a dedicated documentary crew, having high-quality audio of yourself asking questions during an interview can be tricky. The majority of even the best microphones for vlogging and filmmaking tend to be supercardioid or unidirectional. Which is great for hearing the subject being filmed, but not so great for hearing the interviewer's hard-hitting questions.
