Providing the flexibility to accommodate camera-mount or boompole microphone operation for mobile journalists, vloggers, and run-and-gun videographers who need a versatile indoor/outdoor shotgun mic setup that works with any camcorder or HDSLR camera, this B&H Kit features the Rode VideoMic Pro battery-powered shotgun microphone with a 3-stage gain control and bass roll-off, the Rode Micro Boompole telescoping boompole, an Auray custom furry windshield, and a 10' 3.5mm TRS extension cable.
Offering lower noise, higher sensitivity, and more adjustable settings than the VideoMic, the Rode VideoMic Pro camera-mount shotgun microphone is ideal for mobile journalists, vloggers, budget filmmakers, and run-and-gun shooters looking for a cost-effective way to step up to the next level in quality.
A single 9V battery provides up to 70 hours of run time and an LED turns red to indicate low-battery status. Adjustable gain and a selectable bass roll-off make it easy to optimize the level and tone of your recording for a range of scenarios.
This compact and lightweight shotgun microphone features an integrated shockmount that mounts directly to your camera or boompole and reduces noise from various vibrations. The windscreen design reduces wind noise, making it well suited for outdoor shoots. The attached 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.
The Micro Boompole from Rode is a convenient and portable three-piece boompole. Lightweight and precision balanced, the anodized aluminum pole features intuitive twist locks for smooth extension.
The Rode VC1 is a high-quality microphone extension cable that offers 10' of additional length between your mic's 3.5mm TRS connector and the 3.5mm audio input of your DSLR/mirrorless camera or recorder.
The VC1 is compatible with microphones from Rode, as well as other manufacturers. It can also be used as a headphone extension cable.
The cable is equipped with a female 3.5mm TRS jack on one end and a male 3.5mm TRS plug on the other. It is well suited for applications that require positioning the subject further away from your camera, or mounting the microphone on a boompole or stand.
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 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 to 17 mph), and users can generally expect a 30 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 Windbuster helps prevent moisture and dirt from damaging your microphone.
