Will this work for planespotting / aviation videography with my iPhone and block most of the wind noise? (The runway is right in front of me)
Asked by: Edgardo
The RODE VideoMicro II Ultracompact Camera-Mount Shotgun Microphone can be used with an iPhone and it does include a furry windshield to help minimize wind noise. The mic is rated with a maximum sound pressure level of 110 dB for the loudest sounds that it can reproduce clearly, so although the sound of the airplanes may be louder than what the mic can handle, but it may still do a decent job of documenting the planes with the video captured by your iPhone.

I can’t get this to pickup audio with zoom h5. Anyway to do so?
Asked by: Bobby
The RODE VideoMicro II Ultracompact Camera-Mount Shotgun Microphone can be connected to the 3.5mm TRS mic input on the X/Y mic module that is included with the Zoom H5 Portable Handy Recorder using the 3.5mm TRS to 3.5mm TRS cable that comes with the mic and it will receive plug-in power through this mic input. As another option, the VideoMicro II can be connected to an XLR input on the H5 when using the same 3.5mm TRS to 3.5mm TRS cable together with the RODE VXLR+ 3.5mm TRS Female to XLR Male Adapter with Phantom Power Converter (B&H # ROVXLRP). When connecting the VideoMicro to an XLR input with the VXLR+ adapter, you will need to turn on phantom power (48V) for the corresponding input in order to supply voltage to power the mic. The VXLR+ adapter converts phantom power to the appropriate amount of plug-in power that the mic requires.

There isn't a power adapter to get this to work on a standard or older camcorder that doesn't supply plug-in power, correct?
Asked by: Chris
As a siimple solution for connecting the RODE VideoMicro II Ultracompact Camera-Mount Shotgun Microphone to your camera, you could use a camera-mount mixer like the Comica Audio CVM-AX3 Dual-Channel Audio Mixer for DSLRs (B&H # COCVMAX3) which has 3.5mm mic inputs that can supply plug-in power and operates via a single 9V battery and uses a 3.5mm output cable for connection to the camera's 3.5mm audio input. This mixer has two separate channels, so you can use it to connect two mics to your camera at the same time. In addition to the 3.5mm TRS mic inputs, it also has two XLR-1/4" inputs for mics and line level devices, and it can supply phantom power to XLR mics. Any two mic inputs can be used simultaneously.
