Deity Microphones V-MIC D3 Overview

  • 1Description

The Deity Microphones V-Mic D3 Pro is a supercardioid on-camera shotgun microphone offering directional audio capture, adjustable gain and filtering, and broad device compatibility for videographers, YouTubers, and sound recordists. 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. Setup with your camera is simple and efficient using the supplied Rycote Lyre adjustable shoe shockmount and 3.5mm TRRS coiled cable.

The pre-polarized condenser capsule utilizes a supercardioid polar pattern, which yields low off-axis coloration, high SPL handling, and a high signal-to-noise ratio. Boasting a 50 Hz to 20 kHz frequency range with low noise and distortion, the V-Mic D3 Pro adheres to the demanding standards of high-resolution recording. A stepless dial 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 by the internal 51-hour rechargeable battery; automatic power saving conserves battery life by shutting down the V-Mic D3 Pro after 15 minutes of standby time. The lightweight aluminum body is finished in a low-reflection paint, ensuring that it won't weigh down your camera or induce distracting glare. The V-Mic D3 Pro includes a foam windscreen to minimize noise from wind or HVAC systems.

You Should Know
Some TRS-equipped cameras from Blackmagic, Fuji, and Olympus require a 3.5mm TRS cable (available separately) for operational compatibility.
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.
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, 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. Unnecessary battery usage is avoided by an automatic power-off function that turns off the V-Mic D3 Pro after 15 minutes in standby mode. The internal battery recharges via USB in approximately two hours.
Convenient Accessories
The included foam windscreen reduces wind noise and handling noise. The Rycote Lyre adjustable shoe shockmount minimizes the transfer of vibrations by decoupling the mic from your camera. Connect the V-Mic D3 Pro to your device via the supplied 3.5mm TRRS coiled cable. Store and transport the entire bundle in the included semi-rigid nylon carrying pouch.

    Deity Microphones V-MIC D3 Reviews

    V-Mic D3 Pro Supercardioid On-Camera Shotgun Microphone with Rycote Lyre Suspension is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to onboard mic, and much more! I’ve been using the D3 Pro for a few months now and I am thoroughly impressed! This mic meets more than the basic needs of an on camera shotgun. It’s standard barrel design makes it much more versatile than other mics in its class, meaning it does more than just live on my camera. The smart TRRS cable has this mic moving seamlessly from DSLR to PC to GoPro to iPhone, even just plugging straight into a handy recorder when needed. The stepless gain knob is a life saver in run and gun work with a DSLR, as I no longer have to stop recording to adjust volume, or use a noisy hard switch. Oh, and the variable Rycote mount let’s me put the mic just where I need it for specialty rigs. Charging is fast and the battery lasts well beyond my daily needs. I can also easily take this mic and throw it on a boom pole if needed using the D.XLR. The D3 Pro is crisp, perfectly directional, and just downright works. If you bought a camera recently and are looking for a microphone to stick on it, this is the one to get. I will be buying another one of these to keep in my kit, and also picking up it’s little brother the D3, because well... why not?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mic for so many different uses The Deity D3 V-Mic Pro is a great on camera mic, but it also works well as a backup shotgun mic. For low budget clients it’s a great solution to use for a high budget look using a shotgun and boom pole but leaving your more expensive gear at home. I’ve had a chance to use this with GH5, X-T3 and Pocket 4K with impressive results!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh yeah This mic is perfect. Never had a problem with Rode but this is simply a superior product. I used it for an interview in a fairly large, noisy and echoy room. The quality is unmatched.

    Help. I bought this Mic, and I cannot get it to work with anything. It won't work with the Black magic 4k, or my Canon 5D Mark iv, or my Zoom H6N. I have tried so many cable configurations and their adapters. But nothing works. What am I doing wrong?
    Asked by: Danny
    None of those devices supply plugin power, meaning the mic cannot detect that it is connected meaning it will not turn on. There is no way you can force the mic to power on. On the Deity website they refer to an external TRS-adaptor but not which one.

    On the Deity website it is stated that a TRS-adaptor is needed for the mic to be connected to a BMDPC 4K. Now what is the exact cable needed? Maybe someone could provide a link?
    Asked by: Jos
    Per Deity, a TRS to TRS cable such as Item Code KOCMXRC30B is the correct one to use.

    hi, i have problem connecting it to Pocket4k. It works only when its connected to power with usb c, otherwise the led stays orange blinking. doesnt not work with rode trrs to trs cable as well...anybody has solution?
    Asked by: filip
    It comes with an auto sensing TRRS cable, so the Rode Adapter should not be necessary. The USB Cable is for charging the internal battery, it will not pass audio.
