Rode VideoMicro overview

  • 1Description

The VideoMicro Microphone, Micro Boompole Pro, and Cable Kit from B&H includes everything you will need to capture audio and can be used for applications such as portable video cameras, DSLRs, audio recorders, and more.

The B&H kit's VideoMicro microphone has a compact design to improve the audio quality of your video and incorporates a cardioid condenser capsule that reduces distracting peripheral sound and focuses on the audio in front of the camera. It includes a Rycote suspension and a furry windshield.

  • Rode VideoMicro Compact On-Camera Microphone

    The VideoMicro from RODE is a compact on-camera microphone that features a cardioid condenser mic capsule for capturing audio recordings. The lightweight microphone can be used when paired with a video camera for applications such as weddings, interviews, and more.

    The VideoMicro reduces distracting peripheral sound and focuses on the audio in front of the camera. The microphone body is made from aluminum, giving it a high level of RF rejection, and is finished in a ceramic anti-glare black coating. The mic is powered by camera plug-in power (min. 3V) so no battery is required.

    In addition, the VideoMicro includes a Lyre shoe-mount that minimizes unwanted vibrations, handling, and cable-borne noises, and a WS9 synthetic furry windshield with a foam inner cell, designed for use in outdoor situations where wind and environmental noise can inhibit recordings. A 1/8" TRS patch cable is also included.

Rode VideoMicro reviews

VideoMicro Microphone, Micro Boompole Pro, and Cable Kit is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big Sound, Small Package! I've worked really hard to get my filmmaking rig as small and portable as possible, so when this mic came out I knew I had to give it a shot. This thing is tiny, tiny, tiny! But the sound quality it delivers is HUGE. I bought the entire kit and found the boompole is virtually weightless, that's mind-blowing incredible. Since a lot of my filming is solo, I can hold this boompole all day with one hand and not get fatigued in the least. Otherwise, the mic mounts easily to the camera when I'm filming closer to the subject. This is a simple, elegant solution. If you're using it on the iPhone or iPod, though, make sure you pick up the SC7 cable (or SC4 for the boompole) so it can deliver the best possible results. And, if you wan to monitor with your headphones while using the iPhone or iPod, make sure you get the splitter SC6 too. Otherwise, it plugs directly into your camera with no additional cables. I absolutely love this mic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact with a great sound I am new to video making with my Nikon D4 but I knew that I needed a better sound input system. After shopping around I settled on the Video Micro by Rhode - and I am glad I did. The first thing I noticed after taking it out of the box was its compact size. But don't let size confuse you with sound quality - it was excellent. I have big plans for this microphones use during the upcoming holidays but as of right now I am very pleased with the quality of the microphone's construction as well as the sound quality it records.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding - perfect for beginners! Excellent product, well-built and packaged. Easy to use and to make adjustments as needed. I use this primarily in a daycare setting for video and for some interview-type projects - just right for the sounds. I am not a pro videographer or sound expert; the quality of sound is, to me, outstanding. This microphone offers the flexibility I need when a lavalier mic is not possible. I use this microphone with a Canon T3i; when I edit in PremierePro I do not hear any noise or interference. The windscreen works very well; it seems easy and sound seems a bit nicer than without, particularly indoors in large rooms with less than desirable acoustics (tile floors). I read many reviews and watched many comparison video reviews, all were helpful. However, for the simplicity this product suited me. In video comparisons, it was my opinion that this smaller microphone was superior to the next step Rode microphone and the pro version. I would definitely recommend this product. The B&H website had an excellent demo video which was also very helpful in the accurate representation of the performance. Ordering, shipping & overall B&H experience was (as always) just perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would definitely buy this product again and again! I'm a professional digital cinematographer/DP/director/producer. Over the years, I've had the privilege of working on Emmy and Telly Award Winning television productions, independent films, music videos and corporate/industrial projects. Crews I've worked with and I have stuck with certain brands because they've never failed to provide professional results. So, I'm very particular about the quality and performance of new gear... I bought this at the last minute to compliment a Sony FDR-X3000 action camera. Of course I read other customer reviews for reference. However, you never truly know that an untested device will meet your particular needs until you actually use it. Well, I have been pleasantly surprised to say the least! Yes, there are certainly more expensive microphones that will add even better quality audio. Nonetheless, for the price and the fly on the wall behind the scenes type of documentary I purchased it for.... WOW. It clearly picks up voices outdoors from a car length or more away. The included squirrel's tail wind noise suppressor does wonders! This is my first Rode product and I am completely enamored with it. Far exceeds my expectations!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great bundle for the price The VideoMicro is super exciting, it's tiny, it's light, and it has a boom pole accessory and windscreen for outdoors - this is perfect for young filmmakers, students, and easy-as-pie productions where you don't want a massive sound crew around. The carbon fiber pole is really light and easy to use and move around, the cable gives you plenty of length, and the windscreen is top notch. Make sure your camera can power the mic, that's the only variable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mobile microphone kit! The Rode VideoMicro microphone is a great addition to any mobile video kit. The directional mic does really well with picking up your subject and filtering out ambient noise. The boom pole that comes with this kit is lightweight yet sturdy and is a great addition to the mobile kit. The cable that comes with the kit allows you to use the mic with the boompole. The cable works for cameras, but not for mobile phones.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from XA30 - doesn't work with this Only reason for one star is that it didn't work on My XA30 Canon. Tried every setting i could find but nothing and then changed to lavalier mic - works great. Good quality and build but just doesn't work - kit was good but if the mic doesn't work then its not needed. good customer service to get it back
Date published: 2017-02-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for DSLR video recording This little mic works very well as a boom on the micro boom pole included in the kit. I hung it on the pole and over the heads of the two people doing a video show - good sound. This is a must of you are video taping with your DSLR and want better sound than can be provided from the in-camera mic.
