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 adjustment and two tone-enhancing settings, the Rode Micro Boompole telescoping boompole, an Auray custom furry windshield, and a 10' 3.5mm TRS extension cable.

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.

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 detachable straight 3.5mm cable is included for easy hookup to your camera. The microphone's 3.5mm TRS jack 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.

Versatile Power Options

Included with the VideoMic Pro+ is the LB-1, a rechargeable and removable lithium-ion battery that provides up to 100 hours of operating time per charge. If you don't have time to recharge the LB-1, just remove it and pop in two AA batteries (available separately) instead. The built-in battery door stays attached to the mic and simplifies battery changes. You can even power the mic via a USB connection to an external battery pack or charger.

Manual or Automatic Power On/Off

In addition to a power button, this microphone features a defeatable auto on/off function that mitigates unnecessary battery usage. When connected to the mic input of a compatible camera, the VideoMic Pro+ automatically turns on or off in response to the presence or absence of plug-in power. So, the mic shuts off when it detects a loss in power, either from powering off or disconnecting the camera.

Bass Roll-Off and Treble Boost

The high-pass filter can be set to 75 Hz or 150 Hz to roll off low-frequency noise from common sources such as air conditioners and traffic. Knowing that intelligibility is crucial, Rode outfitted the VideoMic Pro+ with a selectable high-frequency boost, which enhances detail and clarity in the treble range.

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.

Selectable Safety Channel

When source levels get unexpectedly louder, you risk overloading the recording. By pressing the power and dB buttons simultaneously, you can set the mic's right channel to output 10 dB lower than the left channel. This lets you record a safety channel and the main signal to your camera at the same time.

Informative LED Indicators

The main status LED uses red, blue, and green colors to indicate the current power source, charging status, and remaining operating time. Additional LEDs are allocated for indication of the safety channel, high-pass filter, high-frequency boost, and gain settings. An onboard light sensor allows it to adjust the LED brightness level in response to ambient light.

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 an updated and optimized foam windscreen to minimize 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.

Rode VC1 3.5mm TRS Microphone Extension Cable for Cameras (10')

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.

Auray 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 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.

Rode VideoMic Pro Reviews

Great for its intended use

By Marcelo
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-01-17

Sound quality on this is 10/10. It's lightweight, and compact enough to fit in your camera bag. The -10 and +20 dB gain options are clutch as well for noisy environments or a distant subject. The only downsides, as I see them, are (1) the lack of internal battery, (2) the necessity of the on/off switch, and (3) the very short 3.5 mm cord.

For the money this may be the best camera mic around. The sound quality and ease of use are exceptional

Worth the Premium

By Igor
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-12-15

The automatic on/off as recording starts is alone worth the premium. For the past few days I have been recording internal remodeling job and had to move camera around workers quickly, changing angles, tripods, clamps and lenses. The timing was dictated by the situation, not by me. Having a mic that works as an extension of the camera is great - they sleep and wake up together. As for the sound, it's what you'd expect. More than good for that level of boom mic.

Pro level!

Sound quality on this is 10/10. It's lightweight, and compact enough to fit in your camera bag. The -10 and +20 dB gain options are clutch as well for noisy environments or a distant subject. The only downsides, as I see them, are (1) the lack of internal battery, (2) the necessity of the on/off switch, and (3) the very short 3.5 mm cord. (1) Needing to charge and carry spare 9V batteries is a pain, especially as this is the only device in my kit that uses them. An internal battery with USB-C charging port (OR drawing from the camera's internal battery via hot shoe) would have been ideal for my purposes. (2) The on/off switch is a great battery-saver, but it can also result in a recording with no audio if you forget to put it on & don't have the audio meters displayed visibly while your subject is talking. Risky. (3) The cord makes sense for being plugged directly into the camera, which I think is its primary intended use. However, I'd have liked if Rde had included a 5'-10' extension cord to use this on a boom arm. You can buy the TRS extension cable, which I will now do, but it would have been more convenient if the mic had been delivered with 2 lengths of cable (direct camera attachment + boom attachment) that could be swapped into the device with a detachable input port. All of this is to say: if you're a vlogger, YouTuber, or amateur studio film maker that desires high quality, lightweight audio plugged directly onto your camera, then this is a solid bet. To be honest, most of my complaints would have been resolved by actually DOWNgrading to one of the more entry level models with no switches or battery (e.g., the VideoMicro or VideoMic GO), but nevertheless I don't regret this purchase at all :)

Mic fine, packaging insane

By Gary
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2021-12-30

Packaging insanely difficult. Both my wife and I tried to open the nearly indestructible plastic container the mic was enclosed in. Couldn't get the two halves apart. Tried the usual calm approach to separate at the seam without success. Then tried scissors without luck, finally resorted to knives. The plastic is so hard and tough it was even very difficult to get a sharp knife in. After much stabbing and cutting attempts the two halves finally separated. It was a difficult AND hazardous experience. The mic works fine but it will always be the unpackaging experience that I will remember. Come on, guys. It shouldn't be the hard!

How do you attach the mic to the boom pole? Boom pole is a screw thread and mic uses a hot shoe.
Asked by: Lindsay M.
Just turn the mic upside down so you are looking at the bottom of the shoe. You will see a hole in under side of the shoe. The threaded stud at the end of the boom pole will screw right into the shoe. They are all 3/8 threads.
