Rode VideoMic overview

  • 1Description

The Rode VideoMic Camera Mounted Shotgun Mic & Dead Cat Wind Muff Kit from B&H is a cost effective shotgun microphone that can easily be mounted on a video camera because it features an integrated shock mount that attaches to the camera's shoe. The B&H Kit also includes the Rode Dead Cat Wind Muff, which is a zip-on furry cover with deep artificial fur that fits snugly over the NTG1 and NTG2 microphones. When used in combination with the VideoMic, the Dead Cat Wind Muff greatly reduces wind noise when recording in windy conditions.

  • Rode VideoMic with Rycote Lyre Suspension System

    The VideoMic with Rycote Lyre Suspension System from Rode is a shotgun microphone that can easily be mounted on a DSLR camera. It features a Rycote suspension system that attaches to the camera's shoe. The VideoMic is lightweight, and when mounted on a camera it does not appear in the frame. The VideoMic can also mount to Rode's boompoles for elevated audio capture. Its supercardioid polar pattern attenuates sounds from the sides. The result is a signal that sounds closer to the camera, even when shooting in noisy environments or at moderate distances.

    The included Rycote Lyre is a non-elasticated suspension structure composed of a hard-wearing thermoplastic. It is more effective at acoustically decoupling microphones from unwanted vibrations, handling and cable-borne noise than elasticated suspensions. The lyre remains effective at a wide range of temperatures and is virtually indestructible. It will never wear out, sag, snap or require any rethreading to maintain its effectiveness.

    An attached, coiled cable terminates to a 1/8" (3.5mm) mini output connection. The VideoMic features a condenser element that utilizes a standard 9V battery (sold separately). The microphone will run for approximately 100 hours on a single battery.

    Barrel-Canceling Pickup
    The Rode Video Mic functions as a true line+gradient microphone with a supercardioid pattern in the front and a barrel that cancels side audio. The result is maximum pickup of the source in highly ambient and noisy environments.
    Selectable 10 or 20 dB Pad
    When capturing audio in loud environments, the VideoMic offers built-in attenuation. The selectable 10 or 20 dB pad lessens the microphone's sensitivity, allowing it to handle higher SPL levels without sacrificing clarity.
    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, wind or close proximities.
    Internal Power
    The condenser element is powered with a standard 9V battery for up to 100 hours (approximately).

Rode VideoMic reviews

VideoMic Camera Mounted Shotgun Mic & Dead Cat Wind Muff Kit is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like it *** I am not a professional videographer *** Since I decided back in January to start adding video to my repertoire, I figured I should get an external mic to use on my 7D Mark II for wildlife and nature videos. The built-in mic is okay in a pinch, but it simply doesn't deliver the quality of an external mic, or the option of using a boom or stand if desired. I've used it only a couple of times, but it worked really well those two times. The build quality seems good for the price, it's lightweight so as not to add too much extra weight to the camera and lens, and it makes you look like you really know what you're doing. ;-) Overall, I'm happy with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Mic, Not So Good Dead Cat I like the mic and it gets 5 starts, but the dead cat I'm not happy with. I bought the Rode dead cat because I thought it wouldn't shed fake hair like my other generic version. Not so. It sheds everywhere. Plus the hair is longer and after shooting for a day, I realized all my shots had pieces of hair hanging in them. I should have trimmed it back, but needless to say, it's just too long for a dslr setup. Bottom line, not worth the money for the dead cat. The mic is perfect really for the price, but I'd get the cheaper dead cat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice microphone. This microphone works great with my Canon Vixia HF G20 video camera. The foam windscreen works, but the dead cat works even better (note that the dead cat slips over the foam windscreen, then both go on the barrel of the mic). The microphone is much lighter than I expected, and it's very sensitive - if you're not careful when you touch the tripod, you'll hear a thump later in the recording. I've found that the high-pass filter helps a lot with wind roar, yet it doesn't cut out other low frequency sounds. The suspension, although not as bouncy as I had expected, still works as promised. The fibers on the dead cat are thick and appear to be attached well. I actually had to trim them back a bit at the very end of the windscreen because they were hanging down in front of the lens and showing up in my videos. This is a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better than the older models This product is much better than the older models of Rode VideoMics as I have purchased one of these and am purchasing a second one because of the amazing pickup of these mics. It sounds so much clearer, less-noisy, and overall, much more usable in the end product as compared to my old standard Rode VideoMic (Model produced 3 years ago).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VideoMic Camera Mounted Shotgun Mic I use this with my Canon 5D MK3 and performs as expected.
