Rode VideoMic Pro overview

  • 1Description

The Rode VideoMic Pro with Micro Boompole and Windbuster Windshield Kit from B&H includes everything you will need to capture audio and can be used with portable video cameras, DSLRs, audio recorders, and more.

The B&H kit includes a Rode VideoMic Pro shotgun microphone with an integrated Rycote Lyre shockmount, a Rode Micro Boompole that has three sections and extends to 6-3/4', an Auray WSW-VMP-R Artificial Fur WindBuster, and a 10' 1/8" to 1/8" stereo cable for connecting the microphone to your camera.

Delivering broadcast quality in a compact form, this B&H kit is fitting for outdoor as well as indoor applications, and is a suitable solution for your primary and reference audio purposes.

  • 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.

  • Rode Stereo Mini Male to Stereo Mini Female Cable - 10'

    This Rode Mini Phone VideoMic Cable is a 10' long extension cable that can be used to position the VideoMic up to 10' away from the video camera. For the most of its length this cable is straight, but also features a short coiled section on the side of the mic connection.

  • Auray WSW-VMP-R Windbuster for Rode VideoMic Pro with Rycote Lyre Shockmount

    The Auray WSW Series Custom Windbusters provide dual-layered wind protection, substantially reducing unwanted broadband wind noise and vocal pops with minimal high frequency loss. The WSW-VMP-R Windbuster has been custom-made for the VideoMic Pro with the Rycote Lyre Shockmount and the VideoMic Pro Plus and is designed to be used over its existing foam windscreen. The simulated fur outer layer works in tandem with the acoustic cloth inner lining to protect the microphone element from air bursts without muffling the sound. The velvet back cover with locking drawstring offers protection to the microphone, as well as easy access to the controls.

    When used on the VideoMic Pro, the Windbuster is effective in minimizing wind noise and plosive sounds. It is most effective in light to moderate breeze conditions (4-17 mph), and users can generally expect a 30 dB to 40 dB reduction in wind noise with modest dampening of high frequencies. For most applications, the modest high frequency dampening is a worthwhile exchange for the substantial wind noise reduction. In addition to dual-layered wind protection, the WSW-VMP-R helps prevent moisture and dirt from damaging your microphone.

Rode VideoMic Pro reviews

VideoMic Pro On-Camera Shotgun Mic and Accessories Kit is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from I do not know, came Diffective I ordered this mic to help with more directional sound and it did not work out of the box. I own 2 stereo mics from Rode and are awesome, so this should have been a perfect choice. We have put those microphones through the gauntlet of punishment and Rode stands behind there products. I can say Rode is taking care of the issue and I know I will get a working one, but I needed this mic extremely bad and rushed the shipping for it to be defective. It would not pic up any sounds. I know if it was not for the defectiveness it would be 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mic for my DSLR Love this mic. I can use it without an additional pre amp and still get great sound due to adjustments on the mic itself. Love the on- camera and boom capabilities.
Date published: 2016-03-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Setup Very good performance and greatly improves the sound capture of videos with my Canon 5D Mk III and my Sony RX 10. Mic is great, nice to have a bag to store everything. I strongly advise placing a bit of silicon spray on the boom pole and work it in to smooth out the opening and closing operation, as it will be a bit tight at first. After that, you will have a very good system-I am happy with this purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hopefully an outlier, not a trend. My new Rode VideoMic Pro lasted 10 minutes and then died. B&H handled the return and replaced the item immediately. I love B&H. I don't know yet if I love Rode. Hopefully the new one will work just as well for me as the other reviewers have reported.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A perfect deal for beginners and pros. This kit will make your sound much cleaner and your work more professional.
Date published: 2017-01-29
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sound, easy to use with a two inconveniences It was about time I purchased an external mic to plug into my DSLR. I did a lot of research and settled on the Rode VideoMic Pro. The sound is good and clear with hardly any background noise in normal conditions (no construction or heavy traffic). It's real easy to use, just plug it in and slide the the switch to on. The most difficult part was putting in the 9v. battery. It's really tough to open the compartment and then close it again. The only other issue I had was that it's kind of easy to accidentally move the mic sensitivity switch. While shooting in a low-light area I mistakenly moved the switch to the more sensitive setting when I turned it on and the sound for the next hour of recording was then totally distorted and unusable. I don't even know what the purpose of that setting would be because it sounds so terrible.
Date published: 2018-06-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I used the mic at a park where there was a wedding and construction. It picked up the people talking perfectly, without picking up the extra background noise. My only complaint would be the lack of detail in the instructions. I wish it would tell you the best settings for certain situations when using the camera.
Date published: 2016-10-18
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I think I'll love it The only reason I gave this 4 stars is just because I haven't had a chance to use it. I have tested it and it seems great. I love that it is really light. At this point, I'm not sure I will use the boompole and/or windshield but I'm glad it came with it so I don't have to buy those products separately.
