RODE VideoMicro Ultracompact Camera-Mount Shotgun Microphone
Key Features
  • Mobile Journalist, Vlogger, Run & Gun
  • For Cameras and Portable Recorders
  • Runs on Plug-In Power
  • Simple Operation with No Controls
Switch from using the built-in mic on your camera or portable recorder to the Rode VideoMicro ultracompact camera-mount shotgun microphone for improved sound quality and wind noise reduction without adding heft to your rig. Since it runs on plug-in power and has no controls or switches, the VideoMicro is a simple and reliable microphone ideal for mobile journalists, vloggers, and run-and-gun shooters.

This ultracompact and ultralightweight shotgun microphone features a detachable shockmount that mounts directly to your DSLR, mirrorless, or video camera and reduces noise from vibrations and camera handling. The supplied furry windshield minimizes wind noise, making it well suited for outdoor shoots. The detachable coiled 3.5mm TRS cable ensures easy hookup to your camera, and the dual-mono output means that no channel selection is necessary on your recording device.

Does it have dual function for making Filmora ...

Does it have dual function for making Filmora videos on a laptop as well as with a camera?
Asked by: Jan
I have only used the Ride VideoMicro as a shotgun camera On my Canon EOS M6. I use the Rode NT-USB for Zoom and other applications with my MacBook Pro because laptop software usually require a USB microphone input. Rode NT-USB has excellent sound quality and I highly recommend it.

How do you mount this to a smartphone? Do I need a special clamp? (I have a Samsung Galaxy S5)
Asked by: Anonymous
You need something to accept a shoe mount. You could go expensive with a Beast Grip, or DIY with a simple smart phone tripod adapter and attach a cold shoe to it.

The mic is powered by camera plug-in power (min. 3V) so no battery is required. Will It work with Olympus Sema 1 adapter?
Asked by: Karl
The staff answer makes no sense at all. James answer is accurate, the Sema 1 adapter supports plugin power from 1.5v to 10v

will this rode video micro work with the Sony hdrcx900 camcorder?
Asked by: Anonymous
Not sure since I don't have a Sony camera. I did test it on my Canon 60D with the included cable and purchased the SC7 RODE cable to use it with my iPhone, it works great with both, camera and iPhone!!I believe my Canon 60D powers up the mic via the cable.
