Rode VideoMic Pro Overview

This B&H Kit includes the Rode VideoMic Pro camera-mount shotgun microphone with an integrated windscreen and Rycote Lyre shockmount, a dual-shoe bracket with a rubberized grip, and a short TRS cable attached to the mic, providing a microphone setup with more adjustable audio settings and improved performance compared to the standard VideoMic. Plus, it works with any camcorder or HDSLR camera, no plug-in power required.

The dual-shoe bracket attaches to the bottom of your camera and provides two cold shoes—one on top and one on the side for attaching lights and other accessories. A thumbscrew enables mounting the bracket along with a camera onto a tripod, fluid head, ball head, or other gear.

Rode VideoMic Pro Camera-Mount Shotgun Microphone

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.

Shotgun Mic with Directional Sound Pickup

Whereas most built-in camera microphones pick up sound from all directions, this microphone utilizes a supercardioid polar pattern to focus on sound in front of it while attenuating sound from the sides and rear. Its low-noise electronics and sensitive condenser element deliver more detailed audio than the mics typically found in cameras and portable recorders.

Easy Hookup to Camera

A straight 3.5mm cable is permanently attached to the mic for fast hookup to your camera. The cable's 3.5mm TRS plug is wired in a dual-mono configuration, ensuring that the mic signal is sent identically to both input channels of your camera or portable recorder.

Long Battery Life

Pop a 9V battery in the VideoMic Pro for up to 70 hours of operating time. The dedicated power LED changes from green to red when the battery should be replaced. The VideoMic Pro can still function for approximately 10 hours once the power indicator turns red, but performance will be compromised. Use the power switch to conserve battery life during periods of inactivity.

Bass Roll-Off

The high-pass filter can be set to flat or 80 Hz to roll off low-frequency noise from common sources such as air conditioners and traffic.

3-Stage Gain Control

To enable optimal recording levels, the VideoMic Pro boasts a 3-stage gain control. Like the low roll-off and high-frequency boost, the gain control is digitally switched for precision and convenience. The +20 dB setting is ideal when recording to cameras, as it boosts the signal without requiring extreme gain on the camera's inferior preamp. Select the flat setting when routing the mic into a dedicated high-quality preamp, or switch to the -10 dB option when loud sound sources threaten to distort your recording.

Integrated Shockmount Inhibits Vibrations

Understanding that the rubber bands used in many shockmounts can snap and stretch, Rode chose to integrate a rugged Rycote Lyre suspension-style shockmount. This simplifies setup of the mic and inhibits the transfer of vibrations from the camera. Plus, the bottom of the shockmount features a camera shoe mount with a 3/8" thread, ensuring easy attachment to your camera or a boompole such as Rode's Micro Boompole (available separately).

Windscreen Minimizes Wind Noise

The VideoMic Pro has a foam windscreen to reduce unwanted wind noise from breezes, fans, heaters, and air conditioners. For maximum reduction of wind noise in outdoor environments, consider a furry windshield such as the Rode DeadCat VMPR (available separately).

Connectivity Options

Expand the microphone's device compatibility with Rode accessories such as the SC4 and VXLR (both available separately). The SC4 is a short cable that lets you connect the VideoMic Pro directly to a smartphone or tablet equipped with a 3.5mm TRRS jack. The VXLR adapter is the ideal solution when you want to record the VideoMic Pro to a camcorder or mixer that has XLR inputs.

Vello Dual-Shoe Bracket with Grip

The Vello Dual-Shoe Bracket with Grip features two sturdy shoe mounts offset on the side for securely mounting accessories such as lights and microphones. Your camera attaches in the center, and a rubberized grip on the side allows you to hold the entire setup with two hands for steadier shots. The lightweight bracket provides a compact, all-in-one type mounting solution for your DSLR, mirrorless camera, or camcorder.

Additionally, a 1/4"-20 threaded hole on the bottom allows you to mount the bracket along with your camera and accessories directly on tripods and other camera supports. Your camera secures to the bracket without any tools using the included mounting thumbscrew.

Two Shoe Mounts

The Vello Dual-Shoe Bracket offers two cold shoes for off-camera accessory attachment. Secure the bracket to your camera's tripod mount and connect a light above your camera and a microphone to the side. This makes it easy to expand and enhance your recording capabilities with an easy-to-attach bracket.

Stable Grip

The Dual-Shoe Bracket provides a rubberized grip for steadying your shots with an extra hand. Having two points of contact means less shaking and sharper images—plus, shooting with two hands helps when filming action.

I have a RODE VideoMic (not Pro) that I mount on ...

I have a RODE VideoMic (not Pro) that I mount on my camera's hot shoe. I find when I look through the viewfinder that the rear of the microphone assembly is pushing against my forehead. It's not comfortable, it defeats the damping effect of the mount, and I can't get my eye fully up to the viewfinder. Is the clearance the same on the Pro? Any suggestions on how to mount the mic further forward to avoid this problem?
Asked by: Joshua
Hmm. I would say adjust to use the screen instead of the view finder for videos at least, probably not the solution you were looking for but seems to be that it was designed with using the screen instead of the eye piece for video.

What is the ideal distance from the video subject for recording audio for this microphone when attached on a Sony A6300?
Asked by: Pawel
For most all shotgun mics, the ideal maximum distance to be away from the subject is 3'. Anything beyond that, and you'll notice a reduction in quality of pickup, and more ambient noise. If you need to be farther from a subject, then we'd recommend putting the mic on a boompole and placing it over the head of the talent. Here's a suggestion B&H # ROBP.

Is this mic compatible with the Canon C100 Mark II?
Asked by: jeff
You "can" use this mic with this much superior camera as both have a 1/8" jack connection, but IMO this camera is better paired with a higher end mic connected via the main XLR audio inputs.

Does anyone have a guess as to the width of the sound angle it can detect? For example, if you have a wide angle lens on your DSLR recording a group of 4-6 people, will the microphone pick up all of their voices, or does the camera need to be moved left and right to record each person's comments.
Asked by: Todd
Rode VideoMic Pro has a Super-cardioid polar pattern, then you can record that group of people, certainly as more centered the people is, there will be more volume.
