Rode VideoMicro Ultracompact Camera-Mount Shotgun Microphone

Switch from using the built-in mic on your camera or portable recorder to the Rode VideoMicro ultracompact camera-mount shotgun microphone for improved sound quality and wind noise reduction without adding heft to your rig. Since it runs on plug-in power and has no controls or switches, the VideoMicro is a simple and reliable microphone ideal for mobile journalists, vloggers, and run-and-gun shooters.

This ultracompact and ultralightweight shotgun microphone features a detachable shockmount that mounts directly to your DSLR, mirrorless, or video camera and reduces noise from vibrations and camera handling. The supplied furry windshield minimizes wind noise, making it well suited for outdoor shoots. The detachable coiled 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.

Durable and Small
At just 3" long and 1.5 ounces light, the VideoMicro is an unobtrusive companion for your camera. Its ceramic coating mitigates glare and its durable aluminum body aids in RF rejection.
Shotgun Mic with Directional Sound Pickup
Whereas most built-in camera microphones pick up sound from all directions, this microphone utilizes a cardioid polar pattern to focus on sound in front of it while attenuating sound entering from the rear. Its active electronics and directional condenser element deliver more detailed audio than the mics typically found in cameras and portable recorders.
Easy Hookup to Camera
A detachable coiled 3.5mm cable is supplied for fast hookup to your camera. The cable 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.
Runs on Plug-In Power
No batteries are required to operate the VideoMicro. Just connect the microphone to your camera or recorder, enable plug-in power on the device, and forget about swapping or charging batteries.
Detachable Shockmount Inhibits Vibrations
Understanding that the rubber bands used in many shockmounts can snap and stretch, Rode chose to utilize 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).
Furry Windshield Minimizes Wind Noise
The VideoMicro includes a furry windshield to minimize unwanted wind noise from breezes, fans, heaters, and air conditioners.
Connectivity Options
Expand the microphone's device compatibility with Rode accessories such as the SC4, SC7, and VXLR+ (all available separately). With either the SC4 or SC7, you can connect the VideoMicro 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 VideoMicro to a camcorder or mixer that has XLR inputs.

CAMVATE C0992 1/4"-20 Mount to Cold Shoe or 1/4"-20 Screw Adapter

The 1/4"-20 Mount to Cold Shoe or 1/4"-20 Screw Adapter from CAMVATE is an accessory composed of two independent parts. The first piece is a cold shoe with a hole in the middle, allowing you to attach it to a 1/4"-20 mount with an included screw. The second piece is a shoe-mounted male screw with a 1/4"-20 thread on its upper half and two screw-on round bases.

When combined, the pieces effectively transform a 1/4"-20 threaded mount into a dual support option. By using the first piece by itself, you can deploy a flash, microphone, or any shoe-mounted accessory. Once the second piece is attached, you can use products that have a 1/4"-20 socket including a large variety of cameras, with the two bases available to adjust the height of the exposed screw and allow for a tight fit. Additionally, the second piece can be used by itself to adapt a camera hot shoe for supporting some 1/4"-20 mount accessories.

Z CAM E2 MFT Mount Reviews

It works great.

I'm going into my third week with it. It has its quirks, but all-in-all, I'm happy with it. It is versatile, it is modular, and it is a great camera.

nice video camera/recorder but has problems

I have been experimenting with just my one unit received from B&H Photo a few weeks back. The picture is nice and edits in well with that of the Panasonic GH5s. Unfortuantely, autofocus cannot be depended upon in the continuous focus mode. Push-to-focus seems to work well to offer a single automatic focus though. Audio mode is OK with in-camera, 3.5mm, and xlr input possibilities. I noticed some background noise in the auto-level mode. Noise seems to trigger 'on' when record button is pressed. Maybe just a bad unit. Am sending it back for replacement. I will plan to update this review in about two weeks' time.

Great form factor and versatility, excellent battery life, robust recording options, unbeatable price. Slap on a Metabones speedbooster and this thing can get close to a full-frame look. If you use a fairly recent iPhone or iPad, it works flawlessly as a monitor with a usb-c to lightning cable.

Allot to like. Low cost 4k, records to usbc, built in wifi hot spot for remote control, variety of recording modes and formats, and an active support forum frequented by the owner of the company. Documented my build here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.2599705156954449&type=3

A camera with a lot of problems

By Luigi

Usually I don't like to write something bad, but in this case I'm quiet frustrated with all the issues I have and the poor customer service, which basically tell me that's ok having problems. Here the facts: 1). The Angelbird CF card most of the time cannot be read. Btw it's very difficult to take it out, I'm using a spoon to avoid breaking a nail. I don't know yet if the problem is just with the card. 2). The mini XLR connection which gives phantom power, is producing a very loud noise for most microphones which makes impossible to use that audio at all. The solution is to buy a mike with battery (not much choice on the market). They should do a test and specifically mention a list of mikes which works (if any... I have my doubts). Btw I had a Kondor Blue cable which didn't work (I saw here in B&H also somebody else with the same problem). I had to order an Alvin cable by Amazon. 3). The wireless connection is poor also at a couple of meters distance, maybe due to interference with the wireless Rode Go mike I'm using which through the 3.5mm jack connection is crystal clear. 4). Colour science: in ProRes 422 there is not much too play with and I can't test ZRaw or ProRes Raw with my old Mac Pro. Honestly with the Kinefinity MAVO also in ProRes 422 you get really a cinematic look easily. I bought the Z-Cam for the autofocus for solo working on a light gimbal. 5). Autofocus: you need a good contrast, otherwise forget it. 6). I shoot 2.8f, 180 shutter, 600 ASA in a very no contrast room and the image noise was terrible: impossible to use this footage. You can avoid this problem by recording in low noise which is not available in WDR. OK, it's also true that if you don't have contrast, you don't need WDR.

A user-friendly experience

This is NOT a fanboy review. This camera gets all the attention it needs on its Facebook page. What I will say is that, for the price, this is an incredibly competent production tool. Is it perfect? No. The menus are overly complicated, and the ergonomic placement of some of the buttons are counterintuitive. But all of these are solvable issues. The form factor and low light sensitivity are what drew me to this camera. The post workflow is another matter..and something a new buyer needs to consider. The images the camera makes have a remarkable degree of latitude in post. Ultimately, probably the single greatest feature of this camera isn’t even the camera—it’s the responsiveness of the company to user input. They really listen to their customers, and try to incorporate as many suggestions from real-world users as possible. All you big box camera companies? Pay attention to what Z Cam is doing. They certainly have my attention.

Anyone that can tell something about the low light capability of the e2?

The Z CAM E2 Professional 4K Cinematic Camera uses a 4/3" WDR CMOS Sensor, so while it is not as large as Super35mm or Full-Frame sensors, it will yield good low-light results for its price range.

What is the largest Cfast 2 card capacity that the E2 will accept? 512Gb? 1Tb?
Asked by: Steve
I use an EgoDisk 512GB - no issues. I'm sure it'd be ok with 1TB, but those are not only crazy expensive, they're rather rare - compatibility is very much about card speed, so you wanna stick with card brands that can really handle the bit rate. Be sure and jump on Zcam's FB page - incredibly helpful group there.
