Designed to provide a noteworthy improvement in sound quality over microphones built into cameras, smartphones, and portable recorders, the Deity Microphones V-Mic D3 Pro is a camera-mount shotgun microphone offering directional audio capture, adjustable gain and filtering, and broad device compatibility for for mobile journalists, vloggers, YouTubers, and run-and-gun videographers.

With a built-in microprocessor that automatically configures its TRRS connector to work with most 3.5mm mic input jacks, the V-Mic D3 Pro is compatible with a variety of DSLRs, camcorders, mobile devices, and portable audio recorders. Attachment to your camera, boompole, or tripod is simple and efficient using the supplied Rycote adjustable shockmount and 3.5mm TRRS coiled cable.

A stepless knob on the mic's bottom provides up to 20 dB of gain for easy optimization of levels. Activate the onboard low-cut filter at 75 Hz or 150 Hz to reduce rumble and bass buildup. The microphone is powered primarily by the internal 51-hour rechargeable battery; plug-in power (bias voltage) from your camera or mixer is only required to turn on/off the mic. The lightweight aluminum body is finished in a low-reflection paint, ensuring that it won't weigh down your camera or induce distracting glare.

You Should Know

Some TRS-equipped cameras from Blackmagic, Fuji, and Olympus require a 3.5mm TRS cable (available separately) for operational compatibility. Plug-in power (bias voltage) is required to turn on the V-Mic D3 Pro.

Auto-Configuring 3.5mm Connector

The V-Mic D3 Pro incorporates a microprocessor that automatically adapts its 3.5mm TRRS connector to work with most 3.5mm microphone jacks. Out of the box, the V-Mic D3 Pro is compatible with many DSLRs, camcorders, smartphones and tablets (late-model iOS devices require Apple's Lightning to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter), portable audio recorders, bodypack transmitters, and laptops. Visit the Deity Microphones website to see a comprehensive list of compatible devices.

Stepless Gain Knob

The V-Mic D3 Pro features a stepless analog gain dial. Integrated bump guards help prevent the dial from being accidentally rotated. The gain (up to 20 dB) is added on a linear scale, so you can dial in the exact amount of boost you need for the shot.

Selectable Low-Cut Filtering

Attenuate low-frequency rumble with the V-Mic D3 Pro's low-cut filter, selectable at 75 Hz or 150 Hz. Rather than using a sunken switch that requires a pointed object to flip, the V-Mic D3 Pro opts for a single top-mounted button.

Low Off-Axis Coloration

The V-Mic D3 Pro's pickup pattern remains similar across essential frequencies, yielding low off-axis coloration. Novice and experienced videographers can capture consistent audio quality when dealing with sources that vary their positions.

Low-Noise Electronics

Thanks to the 14mm condenser capsule and low-noise, low-distortion electronics, the V-Mic D3 Pro provides clean audio with a high signal-to-noise ratio, which means less time spent in post-production processing your tracks with noise-reduction software.

Long Battery Life

The V-Mic D3 Pro uses a built-in 320mAh lithium battery, which powers the mic for up to 51 hours. Plug-in power is only used to wake the mic from its standby mode. The internal battery recharges via USB in approximately two hours.

Automatic power saving conserves battery life by entering standby mode when your camera or device is turned off. The power switch and power LED indicate aid in power management; the LED will be red when power is low.

Convenient Accessories

The Rycote Lyre shockmount supports attachment to a camera shoe mount, boompole, or tripod, and it minimizes the transfer of vibrations by decoupling the mic from your camera or stand. The included foam windscreen reduces noise from HVAC systems and light wind. For enhanced protection against wind noise in outdoor shoots, use a windjammer such as the Rycote 12cm Classic-Softie windshield (available separately).

Has anyone tried using a 3.5mm to Mini-XLR cable with a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema 4K?
Asked by: Anonymous
You can connect to the TA3 mini-XLR of the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema 4K camera with a cable , such as the Kondor Blue Mini-XLR Male to 3.5mm Mono Audio Cable for Rode Wireless Go (14&quot;), BH #KOMXLRRODE, but you would still utilize the internal battery of the Diety mic for power.

I understand the variable gain feature on this microphone, but is there an advantage to running it through an external preamp like the DXA micro pro?
Asked by: James
The main reason to buy the Beachtek DXA-MICRO PRO is to be able to add a xlr microphone into a dslr camera, or to use two microphones into one camera. The sound quality on your microphone will be the same since it's still being recorded into the camera.
