- Rode VideoMic Pro Camcorder and DSLR Microphone
The RØDE VideoMic Pro is a quality shotgun microphone designed with a compact form factor (150mm in length) and Two step High Pass Filter (flat, 80Hz). Its integrated shock mounting and integrated foam windscreen simultaneously prevents unwanted vibration and low end noise. The videomic has been upgraded and now produces lower noise and higher sensitivity in addition to the broadcast-quality audio thru its 3.5mm stereo mini-jack output. The videomic also features Rycote® Lyre® shock mounting onboard and three position level control (-10dB, 0, +20dB). Under the mic is a camera shoe mount with 3/8” thread for easy boompole mounting.
Product Features in Detail
True shotgun microphone
The RØDE VideoMic Pro is a true shotgun microphone designed for use with camcorders, DSLR cameras and portable audio recorders as a source of primary and reference audio.
High resolution 1/2" condenser capsule
At the heart of the VideoMic Pro is a high resolution 1/2" condenser capsule that provides broadcast-quality audio via a 3.5mm minijack connector (outputting the mono signal to both left and right channels). A super-cardioid polar pattern ensures that surrounding audio is minimised, and your recording is focused on the subject in front of the camera.
Integrated Rycote® Lyre® based shock mounting system
The integrated Rycote® Lyre® based shock mounting system separates the VideoMic Pro capsule and electronics from its mount, providing isolation from external physical factors that may cause unwanted rumble and vibrations in the microphone. Constructed from a single piece of hard-wearing thermoplastic, the Lyre® provides superior acoustic suspension to traditional elastic solutions, and will never wear out, sag or snap.
Power, filter and level controls
Easily accessible on the rear face of the microphone are the power, filter and level controls. In addition to the microphone's native 40Hz-20kHz response a selectable high-pass filter at 80Hz is available, which will prevent low end noise such as air conditioners and traffic from being recorded.
-10dB level attenuation (or PAD)
Below these controls are the level settings, which attenuate or boost the recorded level as required. The -10dB level attenuation (or PAD) is ideal for recording loud sound sources, such as live music, motorsport, or interviews where the subject is very close to the camera. The +20dB level boost is designed for use with DSLR cameras, allowing the user to reduce the camera's preamp level (or mic-input level), effectively reducing the amount of noise generated by the camera's comparatively low quality audio circuitry.
Standard sized shoe mount
The microphone uses a standard sized shoe mount for on camera use, and features a 3/8" thread in the base of the mount for easy boom pole mounting.
The VideoMic pro is battery powered, and provides over 70 hours recording from a single 9V battery.
