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.

How do you know what to connect where? The 3 ring side or the 2 ring side into the mic or camera?
Asked by: Doodle
There are two cables included with the Deity Microphones V-Mic D4 Mini Ultracompact Camera-Mount Shotgun Microphone. One is 3.5mm TRS to 3.5mm TRS and the other is 3.5mm TRS to 3.5mm TRRS. The TRS connector has two rings and the TRRS connector has three rings. The TRS connectors should be used to connect to the mic output and also to connect to a camera's mic input or to the input on a recorder. The TRRS connector is for use with a mobile device and can be used with adapters to enable compatibility for connection to iOS or Android devices like iPhones, iPads, and other smartphones and tablets.

What is the pinout of this unit with and without the input jack attached? Is the capsule attached to both L, R? Does the input replace the capsule = R? Does it take L, R, or Both on input for the R channel output?
Asked by: Nicholas
When using the Deity Microphones V-Mic D4 Mini Ultracompact Camera-Mount Shotgun Microphone on its own, the signal captured by the microphone capsule is sent to both the left and right channels of the 3.5mm output connection. When using the V-Mic D4 Mini with a secondary input source, the microphone signal is allocated to the left channel of the output connection while the secondary source uses the right channel.

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.

Is this mic compatible with Insta 360 One RS action cameras? I don't know if those cameras can supply plug-in power needed? thx
Asked by: E
No. Unfortunately, the Deity Microphones V-Mic D4 Mini Shotgun Microphone is not compatible for use with the Insta360 ONE RS Camera because the camera cannot supply plug-in power for the microphone. You can use another mini shotgun mic that has a battery for power, such as the Comica Audio CVM-V20 Camera-Mount Shotgun Microphone (B&H # COCVMV20).
