The Rode VideoMic Pro Plus On-Camera Shotgun Microphone and Windbuster Kit from B&H includes the Rode on-camera shotgun microphone, a micro-USB cable, a 3.5mm TRS cable, and an Auray WSW-VMP-R Windbuster for the VideoMic Pro microphone. It can be used to capture audio for camcorders, DSLRs, and portable recorders as a source of primary and reference audio.
The Rode VideoMic Pro Plus is a supercardioid condenser shotgun microphone with an integrated Rycote Lyre shockmount, a built-in rechargeable battery, an improved response over its predecessor (20 Hz to 20 kHz), and improved RF-immunity as well. It features 3.5mm stereo mini-jack termination, outputs a dual-mono signal, and provides a TRS cable to make the connection for your camera.
Also, the Auray WSW-VMP-R Windbuster provides dual-layered wind protection and reduces unwanted broadband wind noise and vocal pops. It is custom-made for the VideoMic Pro 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 burst without muffling the sound. It is effective in light to moderate breeze conditions (4-17 mph), and you can generally expect a 30 to 40 dB reduction in wind noise.
Rode VideoMic Pro+ Camera-Mount Shotgun Microphone
Equipped with expanded power options, extended tonal control, and a redesigned windscreen in a smaller footprint than the VideoMic Pro, the Rode VideoMic Pro+ is optimal for mobile journalists, vloggers, budget filmmakers, and run-and-gun shooters in need of a flexible camera-mount shotgun mic that's also at home on a boompole.
With versatile battery/USB power options, upgraded RF immunity, adjustable gain, and multiple clarity-enhancing features, the VideoMic Pro+ can meet the demands of videographers working in a range of indoor and outdoor environments.
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 reworked windscreen design minimizes wind noise, making it well suited for outdoor shoots. The 3.5mm TRS output and detachable cable ensure proper hookup to your camera, and the selectable safety channel prevents accidental distortion by providing a duplicate audio signal at a lower level.

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.
