You need to stand out from the crowd of vlogs, livestreams, YouTube videos, and social media posts—and you can easily do that with the Rode Vlogger Kit Universal, a complete package designed specifically for hassle-free, high-quality audio and video recording to any smartphone with a 3.5mm port.

This bundle features the Rode VideoMicro ultracompact camera-mount shotgun microphone as well as an on-camera light with a diffuser and eight colored filters. Also included are a tripod, a phone holder, and the required accessories to make it all work, such as a suspension mount, a furry windscreen, and all the cables you need. The mic itself is ideal for content creators who can't be slowed down by an intricate setup. Equipped with the Vlogger Kit Universal, you can turn your smartphone into a portable, convenient production system that will markedly improve the caliber of your sound and picture.

Setting up the Kit

What You Get

The Vlogger Kit Universal comes with everything you need (and more) to easily start recording quality video and audio with your smartphone, so you can shoot your next vlog, Instagram story, Facebook Live session, YouTube special, or behind-the-scenes footage looking and sounding better than ever.

  • VideoMicro ultracompact camera-mount shotgun microphone
  • Rycote Lyre shock-absorbing suspension mount
  • WS9 furry windshield to drastically reduce wind noise
  • SC7 microphone-to-smartphone connection cable
  • SmartGrip phone holder and compact tripod stand
  • MicroLED on-camera light with clip-on diffuser and eight colored filters
  • DCS-1 dual cold shoe mount holds microphone and MicroLED light
  • USB Type-C cable for recharging the MicroLED on-camera light

How It Works

Unbox the Vlogger Kit Universal with confidence, knowing that all you have to supply is your smartphone and an idea for your next shoot. In a handful of simple steps, you'll be set up and ready to roll.

  • Affix the dual cold shoe mount to the phone holder, then mount the phone holder atop the tripod stand
  • Attach the MicroLED light and the microphone (in its suspension mount) to the dual cold shoe mount
  • Secure your smartphone in the phone holder and use the coiled cable to connect the mic to your phone (TRS plug into the mic, TRRS plug into the phone)
  • Turn on the MicroLED light, open your app of choice, and begin filming

Microphone Features

Durable and Small

At just 3" long and 1.5 ounces light, the VideoMicro is an unobtrusive companion for your smartphone. Its ceramic coating mitigates glare and its durable aluminum body aids in RF rejection.

Shotgun Mic with Directional Sound Pickup

Whereas most built-in smartphone 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 mobile devices.

Easy Hookup to Smartphone

The SC7 detachable coiled 3.5mm TRS to TRRS cable is supplied for fast hookup to any smartphone with a 3.5mm headphone port. The cable is wired to ensure that the mic signal is correctly routed to the input of your phone.

Runs on Plug-In Power

Since the VideoMicro runs on plug-in power, no batteries are required to operate it. Just connect the microphone to your smartphone 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 your mobile phone. Plus, the bottom of the shockmount features a camera shoe mount, ensuring easy attachment to the supplied DCS-1 dual cold shoe mount.

Furry Windshield Minimizes Wind Noise

The VideoMicro includes a furry windshield to minimize unwanted wind noise from breezes, fans, heaters, and air conditioners.

SmartGrip Features

Smartphone Mounting

The SmartGrip is a high-quality solution for mounting a smartphone on a tripod. It features rugged metal construction with rubberized grips and is suitable for mounting phones from 2.6 to 3.4" in width.

Extra Mounting Points

The SmartGrip features a cold shoe mount for easy attachment of Rode VideoMics and other accessories. Three 1/4" thread attachment points allow for easy mounting on tripods and grips in a range of orientations.

Tripod 2 Features

Supports a Variety of Devices

The Tripod 2 is a sturdy three-position tripod for mounting cameras, microphones, and other accessories.

Closed or Open Positions

In the closed position, the Tripod 2 is perfect for handheld use. The tripod legs can also be opened out to a mid or wide setting for optimal positioning and stability.

1/4" Thread

The Tripod 2 has a 1/4" thread for attaching cameras and camera accessories.

MicroLED Features

Compact and Rechargeable

The MicroLED is a compact rechargeable on-camera light. It is ideal for vlogging, newsgathering, mobile filmmaking, and documentary production.

Adjustable Brightness

The MicroLED features four adjustable brightness settings, and a clip-on diffuser with eight colored filters.

Over Four Hours of Run Time

Power is supplied via the USB Type-C charging port, which both charges the internal battery and can also operate the light. Run time is over four hours at low brightness.
