Rode VideoMic Go overview

  • 1Description

The Rode VideoMic Go with Micro Boompole & Windbuster Kit from B&H includes a Rode VideoMic Go on-camera microphone, a 3-section Micro-Boompole, a 10' 1/8" male to 1/8" female extension cable, an Auray WSW-VMG Windbuster, a VideoMic Go foam windscreen, and a 1/8" dual-mono output cable. It can be used to capture high-quality audio recordings to your small camcorder or HDSLR camera.

The Rode VideoMic Go has a supercardioid polar pattern and is lightweight at only 2.6 ounces, making it ideal for handheld shooting. It features an integrated Rycote Lyre shockmount for isolation from bumps and vibration, and offers battery-free operation using plug-in power from your camera's 1/8" microphone input. Please note that the microphone will not work with cameras that don't supply plug-in power to their 1/8" audio input jack.

Additionally, the aluminum, precision-balanced Micro Boompole is a convenient and portable 3-section boompole. It has an ergonomic grip handle and an intuitive lock/release system for a smoother extension. Use it to extend the range of the microphone and for keeping the mic out of the shot.

The Auray Custom Windbuster is designed for the VideoMic Go and provides dual-layered wind protection, and reduces unwanted broadband wind noise and vocal pops. It is designed to be used over the microphone's 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.

Finally, the Rode VideoMic Go with Micro Boompole & Windbuster Kit from B&H includes everything you need by way of cables and accessories to get up and running straight out-of-the box.

  • Rode VideoMic GO Lightweight On-Camera Microphone

    The VideoMic GO Lightweight On-Camera Microphone from Rode is a lightweight microphone which adds high-quality audio recording to your small camcorder and HDSLR camera. At only 2.6 ounces, the microphone keeps your camera setup lightweight, making it ideal for handheld shooting. It features an integrated Rycote Lyre shock mount for isolation from bumps and vibration, and offers battery-free operation, using instead the plug-in power from your camera's 3.5mm microphone input. Please note that the microphone will not work with cameras that don't supply plug-in power to their 3.5mm audio input jack.

    The VideoMic GO is a directional microphone. It utilizes a supercardioid polar pattern to attenuate sounds from the sides, resulting in a signal that sounds closer to the camera, even when shooting in noisy environments or at moderate distances. The integrated shoe mount provides a 3/8" thread for additional mounting options. A foam windshield and 7.9" dual mono 3.5mm coiled output cable is included.

    Lightweight Design
    At only 2.6 ounces, the VideoMic GO is ideal for run-and-gun HDSLR recording without the additional weight of larger on-camera microphone options.
    Integrated Rycote Lyre Shock Mount
    Constructed from a single piece of hard-wearing thermoplastic, the Lyre provides superior acoustic suspension to traditional elastic solutions, and won't wear out, sag, snap, or require any rethreading to maintain its effectiveness.
    No Battery Needed
    The VideoMic Go does not require batteries for operation, but instead uses the plug-in power supplied via your camera's 3.5mm microphone input. Simply plug in, and you're ready to record.
    Additional Features
    • Reinforced ABS construction
    • Foam windshield
    • Integrated shoe mount with 3/8" thread
    • 3.5mm TRS mini-jack audio output connection

  • 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-VMG Custom Windbuster for Rode VideoMic GO

    The Auray WSW Series Custom Windbusters provide dual-layered wind protection and are designed to substantially reduce unwanted broadband wind noise and vocal pops with minimal high frequency loss.

    This WSW-VMG Custom Windbuster has been tailor-made to fit the VideoMic GO 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.

    When used on the VideoMic GO, this 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 30dB to 40dB 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-VMG helps prevent moisture and dirt from damaging your microphone.

    The WSW-VMG Custom Windbuster for Rode VideoMic GO shotgun microphone offers an extremely effective dual-layered solution for wind protection.

Rode VideoMic Go reviews

VideoMic Go with Micro Boompole & Windbuster Kit is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Undecided I bought this for an on camera/boom mic setup for filming short films and documentaries. Overall I like the form and the kit. However I'm detecting a very slight flutter on recording. Essentially recording audio reveals an audio flutter that cuts into the sound. It's difficult to determine what the cause is at this time. Searching has suggested electrical interference, but I tried the same recording w/o all the camera gear and still show a significant flutter in line level from this mic. still debating what to do about this and need to do more testing to resolve.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy and recommend this product For straightforward recording, this mic is perfect. I used it for business purposes to tape a meeting in a medium size conference room. The sound quality was clear and very good.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a useful kit for me A boom/stand combo is much more useful for studio work and a 1-man op in my case. The Auray dead cat is near worthless as is doesn't fit this mic properly; it flunked my wind tests due to gaps at the back of the mic. The Rode boompole won't lock for me at intermediate positions, hence it has sat on the shelf since I got it. Even if I trusted this pole and it's twist-locks, I'll need to buy a 'fork' holder to restrain it. I adapted a reflector-stand into a boom and it works great as it's sturdy and I use the reflector clips to restrain cables.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Compatible Cameras I may have missed it, but I did not see anything on B&H indicating mic/camera compatibility, found this out the hard way. Here are the specs from the Rode site. Its not exhaustive but its a start. Nikon D7000 Canon T3/1100D Canon C100, C300, C500 Canon VIXIA HFR500 Canon VIXIA HFG20, HFG30 Canon XA-10 Canon Vixia G10 Canon Legria HF G25

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great sound and easy to use, but clicking noise on camera Super easy to use and when I hold it off camera, the sound quality really ups my game. I do get a clicking sound when it is mounted on camera and I saw that there were other users with this issue, too. I need to mess around with it more, but hopefully I can figure out what to do so I can use it hands-free on my camera (Nikon D500)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Film student tested!! As a current video and film student I will use it for my both school and personal projects. I used this same mic while filming a documentary in the US Virgin Islands for a summer class and it worked great. This mic is very easy to use and sits perfectly on top of a DSLR camera. The combo price at B and H is a great deal.
