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.

Nikon Z 50 Mirrorless Camera Kit

By Larry
Rated 5 out of 5

Nice small, lightweight camera to compliment my D800e and D850. Great for carrying around when I don't feel like lugging the big boy's around.

A mirrorless camera, Something new!

By Pamela
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-10-06

I've had the z50 for about 10 days now, have shot almost1000 pics. After using my D7100 for 8 years, there is definitely a difference between the two cameras. Out of the box, the mirrorless is more lightweight, which I appreciate, and the 'keepers' that I've had appear to be more sharp, even at a distance. I have much to learn to add to my comfort using the z50, but I think it will be a good camera to have. My usage is casual wildlife photography while walking or at home.

Great camera

Although I've. Been a Canon and then Sony shooter for years, this particular Nikon captured my attention. First, the ergonomic and small form got me interested. Then upon further investigation, I found that the layout of the buttons and dials for quick and easy access to functions look very user friendly. Although I waited for quite a while for this to be in stock (supply chain and all that stuff we've had to get used to!), I feel like it was worth the wait. Additionally the kit lenses come with higher than normal reviews.

Great camera. After using full size for many years, most recently the Nikon 850, I find the mirrorless easy to use and get great results. So far I love it.

Just out of the box

By Sherry
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-12-30

Opening the box, everything was wrapped and in order. No problems there. This is my first Nikon in years. So haven't really had time to get into it. But my first picture was great. Seems easy to use right out of box. I was impressed with the shipping, extremely quick. Actually same day I purchased they sent. So that was a big plus. Also ordered extra card which was all there in box.

One Year In - Buyer's Remorse

By Dan
Rated 2 out of 5
Date: 2022-12-08

One year in and I have to say that I'm mostly disappointed. I've been a Nikon user for 15 years. Three problems overshadow the two positives for this camera (great size for travel camera, quality images). Problem 1) Autofocus is unreliable at times (electronics glitch?), Problem 2) This is a no go for cold climates - unreliable below 40 Degrees Fahrenheit, unusable below 20 (my DSLRs operate below 0 F), and Problem 3) LCD screen gave out after one year. Delicate cameras have no place in my camera bag - Nikon DSLRs never let me down like this - mirrorless technology needs to toughen up a bit.
