This B&H Kit combines the Rode VideoMic Pro with Rycote Lyre Suspension Mount and a windjammer to create an all-in-one solution for capturing audio for video in high winds. The VideoMic Pro is a supercardioid condenser shotgun microphone that terminates in a 1/8" stereo mini-jack (dual mono), includes an integrated shockmount, and an integrated foam windscreen. It can be used to capture audio for camcorders, DSLR, and portable recorders as a source of primary and reference audio. The Rycote Lyre-based shockmount is built from a single piece of hard-wearing thermoplastic. It 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. This suspension will never wear out, sag or snap.

The Mini Windjammer is designed for the Rode VideoMic Pro with Lyre and features a lined slip-on fur cover, designed for use with the Rode VideoMic. It has a windshield rating of medium that provides up to 30 dB reduction from the effects of high-wind gust noise and vocal plosives. The Mini Windjammer can be used over a foam windscreen or on its own. A touch-fastener strap secures the windjammer in place.

  • Rode VideoMic Pro with Rycote Lyre Shockmount

    The VideoMic Pro with Rycote Lyre Shockmount from Rode is a supercardioid condenser shotgun microphone that terminates in a 1/8" stereo mini-jack (dual mono), includes an integrated shockmount, and an integrated foam windscreen. It can be used to capture audio for camcorders, DSLR, and portable recorders as a source of primary and reference audio.

    The VideoMic Pro has been upgraded from earlier models with a 1/2" condenser capsule that provides broadcast-quality audio. Its 1/8" stereo mini-jack connector (outputting the mono signal to both left and right channels) delivers low self-noise of just 14 dB. A supercardioid polar pattern ensures that surrounding audio is minimized, and your recording is focused on the subject in front of the camera.

    In addition, the Rycote Lyre-based shockmount is built from a single piece of hard-wearing thermoplastic. It 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. This suspension will never wear out, sag or snap.

    Easily accessible on the rear face of the microphone are the power, the filter, the level controls and a selectable high-pass filter at 80 Hz. The filter will prevent low-end noise such as air conditioners and traffic from being recorded. Furthermore, the -10 dB (or pad) is suitable when recording loud sound sources such as live music, motorsports, or interviews, where the subject is very close to the camera. There is a +20 dB level boost designed for use with DSLR cameras, so the user can reduce the camera's preamp level, effectively reducing the amount of noise generated by the camera's audio circuitry.

    The Rode VideoMic Pro 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.

    9V battery powered with over 70 hours use (alkaline)
    Camera shoe mount with 3/8" thread for easy boom-pole mounting
    Compact form factor is only 6.7" length
    Limited 10-year warranty with online registration

VideoMic Pro Kit with Rycote Lyre Suspension Mount and Mini Windjammer is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Suprised at sound Did a comparison of the VideoMIc Pro, MKH-50, MKE-400, MKH-416. Was surprised how good the VideoMic Pro sounded, it sounded very close to the MKH-50, (like a deep creamy sound) and sounded much better than the MKE-400 (a thin tinny sounding). Has a indicator light when powered on, just the other day camera guy was duped by the MKE-400 because he thought it was turned on. Build quality-it has a toy feel, plastic and cheap where as the MKE-400 metal feels expensive and high end. The mini windjammer sheds like a real cat. The only downside is its size, its big mic compared to the MKE-400 for on camera mics. Overall pleasantly surprised at the quality of the sound.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Encouraged 4.5 stars would be appropriate for this mic. There is a noticeable gain from using this mic over the camer's onboard condenser mic (t5i). The only poor design I feel is the battery cover. Its a weak plastic cover plate and I feel like I might break one of the little hinges as I wrestle with it each time. As a precaution it is just better to remove the entire windscreen and mini wind jammer everytime you want to change the battery. Other than this its a good mic

Rated 2 out of 5 by from After two years I'm normally very forgiving on product design, but after two year of using this product the one thing that I can't get over is the impossible battery cover. Location and function is completely poor. I would not buy this product again. The microphone itself is fine, but it should take 10 minutes each time to change the 9V battery. I actually stopped in the middle of my frustration to go online, find the store where I bought this and give it a post review. Manuifacturers should get the message throughn declining sales that some things they make are just not customer friendly. Fortunately I have not had to change the battery in the middle of a session, how embarrassing would that be. I will stay away from the brand next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic for Run and Gun DSLR Audio So if you're like me and don't have time or patience to sync external audio to your video, look no further. This microphone's +20 dB helps eliminate the noisy built-in pre-amp so you can get clean audio straight into the camera. And the new Rycote Lyre shock mount is way better than the previous shock mount that consisted of elastic bands. Is works like a charm. Also, if you're deciding on whether to get the Windjammer, just buy it with the microphone, because not only will you save some money, but you'll be glad to have it. You need it outdoors when filming in windy situations. Bottom line, if you need a good audio solution and don't have the time for external audio, this is the solution for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!!! Had the older version for 2+ years. Couldn't live without it. This one is even better if that is possible. The mount feels so thought, and I think the sound quality is even a little better. The wind jammer in this kit is much better than the off brand wind jammer I had with my other one. I would highly recommend Rode and this kit!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Mic. Funky battery door I was using an original Rode video mic, but was getting zoom motor noise in my audio, and the rubber band suspension was a large part of the lack of isolation, especially in the cold where I do most of my paying work. I bought this one as a replacement, and the suspension is worlds better, and the isolation is at least 20-30 dB better than the original. I love the different padding and gain that's switchable on the fly. My only gripe is with the battery door - it doesn't give you a solid indication that it's closed and latched. The dead cat wind screen is pretty good but doesn't eliminate all the wind noise.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice mike for my nikon d5100 Bought mine along with the dead cat. Between the low cut filter and dead cat I still get wind noise in 45 mph gusts but way less than the d5100 built ins. Working the battery door is a little difficult. Output level adjustment is very nice to tweek in concert with the camera for least amp noise in the raw recording. Directional response pattern could be tighter for my purposes but all in all a good balance. High frequency like a strap clip knock on camera body still transmits through lyre mount, don't know if old style band mount is less susceptible, my fix is soft cloth cover on DSLR neck strap clips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Microphone....Great Store!! Just got this microphone in today and put it through a quick test on the camera and it was great. My expectations were for it to record well at 3 feet but it has done a great job at 5 and 6 feet away. I purchased a Rode VideoMic and it had an issue where it wasn't working properly. This was my first purchase with B&H so I wasn't sure how they were going to be with a return. When I called up they said it was not a problem at all and they sent me a label to send the bad microphone back, which went out today. I was impressed with the way they handled the issue so I ordered a Rode VideoMic Pro after speaking with the representative from B&H, he said it was the best microphone under 400. After testing it I would say it is safe to say he is correct! As a first time buyer at B&H I am glad I purchased through them, I will be making future purchases with them because of the way they handled my issue with the bad microphone and because the representative I spoke to was knowledgeable. In short: If you need a great microphone and want to do business with a good place then buy this mic. from B&H.
