Providing the flexibility to accommodate camera-mount or boompole microphone operation for mobile journalists, vloggers, and run-and-gun videographers who need a unobtrusive mic setup that won't weigh them down, this B&H Kit features the Rode VideoMicro ultracompact shotgun microphone, the Rode Micro Boompole Pro ultralightweight modular boompole, and a 20' TRS cable. The kit includes a WS9 furry windshield for outdoor use and a Lyre shockmount to reduce vibration noise.

Rode VideoMicro Ultracompact Camera-Mount Shotgun Microphone

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.

Durable and Small

At just 3" long and 1.5 ounces light, the VideoMicro is an unobtrusive companion for your camera. Its ceramic coating mitigates glare and its durable aluminum body aids in RF rejection.

Shotgun Mic with Directional Sound Pickup

Whereas most built-in camera microphones pick up sound from all directions, this microphone utilizes a cardioid polar pattern to focus on sound in front of it while attenuating sound entering from the rear. Its active electronics and directional condenser element deliver more detailed audio than the mics typically found in cameras and portable recorders.

Easy Hookup to Camera

A detachable coiled 3.5mm cable is supplied for fast hookup to your camera. The cable is wired in a dual-mono configuration, ensuring that the mic signal is sent identically to both input channels of your camera or portable recorder.

Runs on Plug-In Power

No batteries are required to operate the VideoMicro. Just connect the microphone to your camera or recorder, enable plug-in power on the device, and forget about swapping or charging batteries.

Detachable Shockmount Inhibits Vibrations

Understanding that the rubber bands used in many shockmounts can snap and stretch, Rode chose to utilize a rugged Rycote Lyre suspension-style shockmount. This simplifies setup of the mic and inhibits the transfer of vibrations from the camera. Plus, the bottom of the shockmount features a camera shoe mount with a 3/8" thread, ensuring easy attachment to your camera or a boompole such as Rode's Micro Boompole (available separately).

Furry Windshield Minimizes Wind Noise

The VideoMicro includes a furry windshield to minimize unwanted wind noise from breezes, fans, heaters, and air conditioners.

Connectivity Options

Expand the microphone's device compatibility with Rode accessories such as the SC4, SC7, and VXLR+ (all available separately). With either the SC4 or SC7, you can connect the VideoMicro directly to a smartphone or tablet equipped with a 3.5mm TRRS jack. The VXLR+ adapter is the ideal solution when you want to record the VideoMicro to a camcorder or mixer that has XLR inputs.

Rode Micro Boompole Pro Ultra-Lightweight Modular Boompole (7.2')

The Micro Boompole Pro from RODE is an ultra-lightweight modular boompole that extends to 7' and allows location sound engineers to capture audio in confined or difficult spaces. The pole has been optimized for use with the VideoMicro microphone (sold separately) and using a standard 3/8"-16 thread, these sections can also be used to extend the Boompole Pro to reach over 12' in length.

This is not designed for web conferencing use straight out of the box. You will need either of these usb adapters to allow for a separate mic in and headphone out B&H # SAAUMMSA or B&H # SAAUMMSC.
