The Rode Stereo VideoMic Pro builds on the success of the Rode VideoMic Pro & Stereo VideoMic with improved stereo reproduction, sound quality and ergonomic design. The Stereo VideoMic's capsule feature a matched pair of 1/2" cardioid condenser capsules, mounted in a coincident X/Y position for accurate stereo imagery and detail. The microphone's small, ergonomic footprint features an integrated shock mounting system for superior isolation from vibration and mechanical noise. The multi-strand output cable is terminated with a 1/8" (3.5mm) output connector and delivers significantly lower noise transference than traditional audio cable.

The included shoe mount features an integrated shockmount system for even further protection against handling noise. The Stereo VideoMic features a high pass filter switch at 75Hz for minimizing low frequency noise, and a -10dB Pad for maximizing headroom for capturing loud signals without distortion. The +20dB level boost switch is specifically designed to provide a higher quality signal with DSLR cameras. When activated, camera preamp level is reduced, resulting in a lower noise floor and much clearer recording.

      I make beauty/vlog videos on YouTube. I was hesitant about getting this mic over a shotgun mic - but I ultimately decided on this one, because I found a great deal on it in the Used Department. Overall, it works beautifully! I made a video with sound samples of all of the settings on this mic! .........

      I received the mic yesterday. While the sound quality of the mic is really terrific, its build quality is really low. I the slider button broke the very first day when I only used a gentle nudge to move it. Really shocked that a $ dollar mic is such low quality. Really bummed that such a terrific sounding mic couldn't come with better construction.

                      Used this as an audio source for a c100 mounted on a dji ronin. Needed nat sounds. Overall, good performance. I had ordered one and had to return it due to a short in the on/off switch. The second unit arrived and has worked flawlessly.

                          I am happy with this microphone choice! I had done several hours of reading and comparing the other rode microphones and other brands as well vs. this one. What basically sold me on it:

                          It is Stereo Microphone vs. Mono channel meaning your going to hear a more full and true sound of the whole environment vs. the sound of someone standing in front of the microphone.

                          It is smaller and more compact than the other lesser cost Rode models.

                          B&H had the best overall price when considering all factors.

                            I have used this on several different camera models with very good results. The wind cover works well in light breezes but not the heavier winds. I used it for sporting events and the ability to reduce the decibels was great.
                            There is an off switch.
                            However, it was knocked off my camera while sailing in the BVI and it did not like the salt water.
                            I will get another or upgrade. I am still looking.

                            es muy bueno en cuanto a la calidad de audio lo único malo es el cable, es muy delgado y corto, la versión más barata unidireccional tiene un cable mucho mejor que este, deberían mejorar ese aspecto y estaría perfecto

                              The on camera mic is ok until you touch or move the camera, then you get the noise and hope you do not need it if the wind is blowing. I got this and the dead cat. I have not used the dead cat as of now. I have not needed to use it. With this setup and my camera audio setup in manual mode. I have been able to control the level of noise and the quality of the sound on my videos. The only thing I do not like is no off, that I have found yet. I have been removing the batterie when not in use. The +20 gain works great with my 5200.

                                  SO much better than my beloved VideoMic...

                                  Audio is clear and absolutely usable out of camera.

                                  The +/- 20 db is extra helpful and the smaller size gets in the way of me filming less.

                                  Seems to also last longer, interestingly enough!

                                          Used with the dead kitty this mic really does well in the wind. There's almost no wind noise until it exceeded 15-20 mph!

                                          Stereo sounds much better than my shotgun style Video Mic Pro recording general event ambience. I leave it on 90% of the time and just switch out to my shotgun when I need to record some voices.

                                          Albeit more than I wanted to spend, with the dead kitten performed wonderfully on the Outer Banks. Works really good when you remember to turn it on. Got the waves, bird sounds without a lot of clutter. Available controls work great. Good video with crappy sound is bad video. Used on D800.

                                              This mic will definitely improve the quality of in-camera audio. Its form and ease of operation are also good. I haven't used it enough yet to determine battery life, but the unit's power consumption is reportedly quite low. My only suggestion for improvement would be a more robust cable. The one currently used seems rather flimsy.

I was hesitant about getting this mic over a shotgun mic - but I ultimately decided on this one, because I found a great deal on it in the Used Department. Overall, it works beautifully! I made a video with sound samples of all of the settings on this mic! .........

                                                        Microphone added a better quality of sound to the videos made on my Canon 70D. Used this microphone to make a set of Christmas videos and everyone commented on not only the quality of video, but the quality of the sound on the video. It is simple to use and it does a great job. No issues with battery compartment or installation of battery.
