The Stereo VideoMic On-Camera Microphone from Rode is a high-quality microphone designed for use with camcorders, DSLR cameras, and portable audio recorders. It features two high-resolution 1/2" condenser capsules mounted in a fixed X/Y stereo array, providing a natural stereo recording, while offering a high level of rear rejection.

The Stereo VideoMic can be used to capture environmental and ambient sounds, as well as live music. A built-in shockmounting system isolates the Stereo VideoMic's capsule and electronics from its mount, providing isolation from external physical factors that can cause unwanted rumble and vibrations in the microphone.

Other features include a standard sized shoe mount for mounting on cameras, a 3/8" thread in the base for mounting to a boom pole or stand, a high-pass filter at 80 Hz to prevent low-end noise, and a -10 dB pad that allows for the recording of loud sound sources. The Rode Stereo VideoMic is powered with a standard 9 Volt battery.

Stereo X/Y Recording
The Rode Stereo VideoMic features true X/Y stereo pick up for accurate ambience reproduction. Excellent off-axis rejection minimizes residual noise.
-10 dB Pad
The Stereo VideoMic features a -10 dB Pad switch for enhanced headroom and minimal distortion.
Camera and Boom Pole Mountable
The versatile shoe mount allows the microphone to be mounted to camcorders, stands, or boom poles.
Integrated Shockmount
The Stereo VideoMic features a permanently attached shockmount with a camera mounting shoe underneath. The shockmount features replaceable rubber O-rings that protect against noise caused by abrupt movement and shock.
High-Pass Filter Switch
A high-pass filter switch eliminates room ambiance and noise below 80 Hz. This results in improved intelligibility while recording around machinery, air conditioners, and traffic.
Internal Power
The condenser element is powered with a standard 9-V battery.

question

does it work with sony a6300? i need a mic for interviewing people standing in front of the camera while the mic is on the camera, is this the right mic for me?
Asked by: Jonathan H.
It should work as long as you have a place to plug it into your camera. You will also need to have a shoe on your camera to slide the base of the mic into and then you screw it down into place. My video camera did not have the shoe so I purchased an adapter that I could put on my tripod with the camera and it worked out quite well!This is a great mic!

Is there an aftermarket or replacement shock ...

Is there an aftermarket or replacement shock mount that works with this microphone?
Asked by: Robert
There is not an aftermarket shock mount for this mic. I would recommend contacting the manufacturer, Rode, directly at www.rodemic.com to request the part.
