I am trying to figure out how these two mics compare, I have very little experience in the audio area - would love if you all could give me some thoughts on these two mics

The newly announced nikon ME-1
Frequency: 70-16000 Hz
Signal to noise ratio: 60 dB
Sensitivity: -42 dB +/- 3 dB
Out impedance: 2.2 kΩ
Power will be supplied by the camera
Low cut filter with on/off switch
Wind screen will be included
Weight: 3.2 oz
Vibration reduction technology

And the Rode
Power: 9V battery powered
Acoustic Principle: Line gradient
Directional Pattern: Super Cardioid
Frequency range: 40Hz-20kHz, selectable HPF @ 80Hz/12dB/octave
Output impedance: 200 Ohms
Signal noise ratio: 74 dB SPL (A - weighted per IEC651)
Equivalent noise: 20 dB SPL (A - weighted per IEC651)
Maximum SPL: 134dB SPL (@ 1kHz, 1% THD into 1KOhm load)
Sensitivity: -38 dB re 1 Volt/Pascal (15 mV @ 94 dB SPL) +/- 2 dB @ 1kHz
Weight: 176gm
Dimensions: 65mmH x 250mmW x 102mmD

What model # is the Rode. I've used two different Rode mics and the results are very good. Nikon is a camera company, so I'm sure they have someone making the Mic for them. I can't comment on the quality without testing the Mic.
