Whether you shoot with a camera or track to a portable audio recorder, the Movo Photo VXR40-II shotgun microphone has the flexibility to handle camera- or boompole-mounted workflows for indoor and outdoor scenes. Its low price point and multiple polar patterns empower you with a budget-friendly mic for capturing speech and sound effects for vlogs, video production, and mobile journalism.

Powered by a single AA battery, the VXR40-II requires no phantom power or plug-in power for operation. Its attached 5' cable is terminated with a 3.5mm TRS plug for simple hookup to a camera, and the included 1/4" adapter is ideal for connection to a mixer or a portable audio recorder.

The VXR40-II's "Normal" mode features a cardioid polar pattern to reject sound behind the mic while being responsive to sound at the front and sides, making it well suited for close-miking indoor sources. The "Tele" mode switches to a supercardioid polar pattern, which offers a more focused, narrow pickup characteristic for recording outdoor sources at greater distances.

Selectable Directivity

The VXR40-II gives you selectable directivity at the flip of a switch to accommodate a range of shooting scenarios. The "Normal" mode uses a cardioid polar pattern to offer generous pickup of sound at the front and sides of the capsule while rejecting sound behind the mic. Activate "Tele" mode to switch to supercardioid, which yields a narrower pickup pattern with more rejection at the sides and increased response behind the mic. Favor cardioid when the mic is close to the subject and utilize supercardioid at greater distances from the talent.

No Phantom Power Needed

You don't need to use phantom power or plug-in power to run the VXR40-II; just pop a single AA battery in the mic to use it anywhere you go. Rather than having to wait on charging time, you can swap out a drained battery in a few moments and continue shooting.

Versatile Mounting

The VXR40-II comes with a shoe-mount mic clip for attachment to a camera or camcorder and a second mic clip that allows the mic to be placed atop a boompole. The attached 5' cable features a 3.5mm TRS plug for simple connection to your camera. A 1/4" TS adapter is included for compatible hookup to the input of a mixer or portable recorder.

Furry Windscreen

To reduce the impact of wind noise in your recordings during outdoor shoots, the VXR40-II includes a furry windscreen, also known as a windjammer. Slip it on before recording in outdoor environments and achieve cleaner audio quality.
