  • Ideal for Video & DSLR Cameras
  • Integrated Shoemount/Shockmount
  • Level Switch: -10dB / 0dB / +20dB

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.

      Comments about Rode Stereo VideoMic Pro:

      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

        Comments about Rode Stereo VideoMic Pro:

        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 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! .........

                                  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.

                                  It works great with my Canon 70D and really reduces background noise (when you use the +20dB setting and set the 70D levels manually), but the switches to turn on & off the device, as well as the buttons to set the gain levels are very cheap and don't really line up with the hash marks for each respective setting. I expected more from Rode in this regard, but audio-quality is solid and great for picking up the 3D acoustics of your environment.

                                  Very lightweight and performance is as I expected after watching the B&H DSLR microphones video review. I highly recommend watching it before making a purchase decision.

                                    The investment in this microphone reflects an effort to record ocean/beach sounds. That is being accomplished, based on sounds and views of the wave forms so far. The unit is compact and offers some physical controls that are very useful.

                                    I needed a mic that could record events and performances and what a great mic Rode has made here. It's easy to use, light, and small. Be sure to buy a battery because it doesn't come with one. Other than that, I highly recommend this. Price was pretty reasonable too.

                                      Comments about Rode Stereo VideoMic Pro:

                                      I purchased this stero microphone in May 2013, for use in producing content for my production studio. I am a rail fan, I turned my rail fanning into a profession, and this microphone was a huge step in that direction. The microphone captures fantastic audio, the built in light wind shield does just that, it eliminates light wind noise, and paired with the Rode Dead Kitten Furry Wind Shield it eliminates all wind noise. The product is also quite durable, the rubber suspension pieces have held up quite well, I have not needed to replace the originals, and to be fair during a faster paced rail fanning trip I can be a bit rough with the equipment. And the microphone comes with extra rubber suspension pieces, so no worries if you do manage to break one.

                                      I am also an editor, and I must say that not having to edit out the wind noise has been great, I never want to go without my Rode Stereo VideoMic Pro again when filming, it saves so much time, and the end product is just so much better. I recommend this product to anyone who want high quality stereo audio, and or no wind noise.

                                        Great addition for video on my Nikon D7100. Internal mic was only good indoors. Slightest breeze caused unnatural scratchy noise. My Rode Stereo Videomic Pro records the sound of wind through the fall leaves and not across the mic itself.
