Deity Microphones V-Mic D4 Mini Ultracompact Camera-Mount Shotgun Microphone
Key Features
  • Hybrid Shooter, Vlogger, Run & Gun
  • For Cameras and Mobile Devices
  • Runs on Plug-In Power
  • Input Jack Allows Secondary Audio Source
Boasting highly directional response and the ability to add a secondary audio source for 2-track camera recording, the Deity Microphones V-Mic D4 Mini is a lightweight and ultracompact camera-mount shotgun microphone that not only effectively rejects off-camera sound, but also works with a range of devices such as DSLRs, smartphones, and portable audio recorders. The winning combination of size, quality, and versatility makes the V-Mic D4 Mini an attractive mic solution for budget-minded vloggers, videographers, and hybrid shooters.

The V-Mic D4 Mini comes with 3.5mm TRS and TRRS audio cables to ensure compatible connectivity with cameras and mobile devices, and its side-mounted output jack won't get in the way when using the eyepiece for photos. By plugging another audio source, such as a wireless mic receiver, into the 3.5mm TRS input jack, you can simultaneously record two separate tracks to your camera—one of the V-Mic D4 Mini's mic signal and the other being the secondary source connected to the 3.5mm input. Since it runs on plug-in power (no batteries needed) and includes a furry windshield rated for 20 mph winds, the V-Mic D4 Mini is ready for the fast pace of audio-for-video productions, outside or indoors.

Cost-Effective Quality

The V-Mic D4 Mini is a high-quality, affordable miniature microphone with a supercardioid polar pattern that allows users to capture directional audio and reject sounds coming from off-camera.

Medium-Diaphragm Condenser Capsule

While other microphones in the micro-shotgun division feature capsules as small as 6mm, the V-Mic D4 Mini features Deity's 4th generation 14mm medium-diaphragm electret condenser capsule, the same one found in the rest of Deity's D4 series of video microphones.

Secondary Audio Source

The V-Mic D4 Mini features a 3.5mm TRS input jack that allows you to easily insert a secondary audio source, like a wireless microphone, without a splitter cable. The input jack automatically routes the second audio source to the right audio channel on your camera. The input jack also features plug-in-power passed through from the camera. This enables the use of a passive lavalier like the Deity V.Lav. This lets the operator capture the scene's natural audio with the V-Mic D4 Mini in addition to a wireless microphone on someone talking to the camera, making it great for videographers, wedding shooters, and online content creators.
Note:
The input jack does not work when you are using the V-Mic D4 Mini with a mono recorder or a cell phone.

Side-Mounted Output Jack

The side-mounted 3.5mm TRS output jack is perfect for hybrid DSLR shooters who still want to use their eyepiece for taking photos.

Audio Cables for Cameras and Smartphones

Included with the V-Mic D4 Mini are two 3.5mm audio cables—one TRS cable for use with cameras and a TRRS cable for smartphones/tablets outfitted with headphone jacks.

No Batteries Required

Since the D4 Mini runs on plug-in power (1 to 5V) from cameras, phones, and audio recorders, it needs no batteries.

Offset Shockmount

The D4 Mini utilizes a new offset shockmount that makes it the ideal microphone for use with wide-angle vlogging cameras or action cameras.

20 mph Wind Protection

The faux fur windshield provides wind protection up to 20 mph so the microphone is ready for rough elements.

I've done some initial tests and this little mic seems to work well. I like that the cable comes out from the side of the mic as I can look through the EVF without the cable in the way.

This Deity mic works great. It's small, compact and shielded so you won't get any noise interference if you use the input with a Wireless Go. I use it on my A7III atop my Ronin RSC 2 when I need to capture audio. I run the Rode Wireless Go II receiver into the input so I can get clean audio off the lav from my talent when doing a walk and talk. With the D4 I can also capture ambient sound to mix with the talent's track. I like that the D4 separates the audio so I have the D4 on one track and the Rode on the other, makes for a clean simple workflow that doesn't require a separate sound guy.

Caleb Pike was right, WAY BETTER than the RODE Micro!

After a week I must say, this microphone is what I've been waiting for. I never liked the muddy bass of the RODE Video Micro but there wasn't anything else that was better, until now. The RODE also picked up camera handling noise way too much, which might be from it being more sensitive to low frequencies. The shockmount on the D4 Mini seems to do a much much better job at rejecting handling rumbles. Maybe because it uses a different kind of shockmount? The unique lavalier loop thru port is awesome. I plug in my camera reciever into that and i now have choices in post for which audio track sounds better.

You Get What You Pay For

Overall this is a decent mic for the price. I find you have to be pretty close to it to get good presence and a robust sound. As I am using this with a GoPro Hero 9 and Media Mod this is perfect for that set-up. My other on camera mic is the Shure Lens Hopper (VP83) which has much better overall sound quality but that is to be expected as it is 3-4 x the price of the D4. I'm using both for selfie style Vlogging.

what foam windscreen is recommended for this? If i don't want to use the furry wind cover
Asked by: Ray Kendrick
There are no foam windscreens available separately that are specifically sized for the Deity Microphones V-Mic D4. You could try using the Auray WHF-2040 Foam Windscreen For 3/4" Diameter Microphones (B&H # AUWHF2040) which is close in diameter, but it's not an exact fit for the V-Mic D4. A rubber O-ring or rubber band or a bit of padding or even tape can be used to create a tighter fit for the windscreen if you find that it is too loose.

It does not sound the same, they are tweaking the audio differently. There is less high frequency response on this D4 than on the Duo. This could be a good thing depending on your application.

Yes the V-Mic D4 and V-Mic D4 Duo will take up the same amount of verticle space. The Duo is a slighly larger mic though.
