Rode STEREO VIDEOMIC PRO-R overview

  • 1Description

The Stereo VideoMic Pro Rycote from Rode builds on the success of the Stereo VideoMic Pro with a few improved upgrades such as a Rycote Lyre shockmount, higher-sensitivity X/Y capsules, denser foam windscreen, better RF shielding, and a thicker Kevlar braided cable. The microphone retains all of the switch locations and other features as the previous model, for use as an on-camera DSLR and camcorder microphone for video applications.

The integrated Rycote Lyre shockmount system protects against handling noise. The Stereo VideoMic features a high-pass filter switch at 75 Hz for minimizing low-frequency noise, and a -10 dB pad for maximizing headroom on behalf of capturing loud signals without distortion. The +20 dB level-boost switch is specifically designed to provide a higher-quality signal with DSLR cameras. When activated, the camera preamp level is reduced, resulting in a lower noise floor and a much clearer recording.

    Rode STEREO VIDEOMIC PRO-R reviews

    Stereo VideoMic Pro Rycote is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for BMPCC I use this to improve nat sound on the BMPCC. It's a VERY noticeable improvement, with the Rycote suspension introducing no handling noise when I shoot handheld.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Picks-up every camera movement sound I am sure this mic is good in some situations. But not if you are moving the camera around. On my Canon 70D, it picks-up every bopping sound the camera movement produces, making the Rycote mount obsolete and by extension, the mic too.� As far as sound is concerned, the mic picks bass sounds rather well giving a well rounded output sound although a little muddled for my taste. I also noticed quite a bit of hiss. I am going back to a regular mount mic.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great on camera mic for opera I use it with for video recording with my DSLRs (Nikon). My main scope is live classical music (opera) and even with full orchestra and soloists it can manage the whole sound spectrum, especially the high notes. The filters help reducing noise. Pros: build quality, sound (filter settings), handling. Cons: power supply with 9 V battery. Should be rather standard AAs or a rechargeable battery with charger. An option for camera based power supply would also be a good option.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Man... I was excited about getting this mic.� But the sound was more high pitch than I expected and my unit would cut off one of the channels, sometimes the left one and sometimes the right and sometimes it worked perfect.� It was probably a faulty mic...� I sent it back and got the Rode Videomic Pro +

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Left channel not working When tested the mic after a month I found that the left channel was not working. I have given it to the local RODE service in Dubai. So far they have not replaced the item. When contacted I was informed that the service centre is still waiting for the communication from RODE.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Left channel not working I bought this on June last week. Tested after one month and found that the left channel is not working. I contacted Rode and they asked me to contact local service centre in Dubai. I have given to the service centre in Dubai yesterday and so far no news for them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Audio This mic is well worth the investment to capture much better audio from a DSLR or mirrorless camera. I use it for both types of camera bodies and I've been very satisfied with it as an on-board mic when capturing b-roll on the go.
