Rode VideoMic Overview

This B&H Kit includes the Rode VideoMic battery-powered shotgun microphone with a selectable pad and bass roll-off, a shoe-/boompole-compatible Rycote Lyre shockmount attached to the mic, and a Rode Dead Cat furry windshield, providing a simple mic setup for quality indoor or outdoor audio recording using any camcorder or HDSLR camera, no plug-in power required. The Dead Cat slips over the VideoMic to deliver effective wind noise reduction and tonal transparency without impeding the microphone's shockmount or cable run.

Rode VideoMic Camera-Mount Shotgun Microphone

Compared to the smaller VideoMic GO, the Rode VideoMic camera-mount shotgun microphone offers battery powering, extended low-end response, and customizable audio settings. Its switchable pad and bass roll-off optimize it for mobile journalists, vloggers, and run-and-gun shooters in loud or rumble-heavy environments.

This shotgun microphone features an integrated shockmount that mounts directly to your DSLR, mirrorless, or video camera and reduces noise from vibrations and camera handling. The windscreen design reduces wind noise, making it well suited for outdoor shoots. The attached 3.5mm TRS cable ensures easy hookup to your camera, and the dual-mono output means that no channel selection is necessary on your recording device.

Shotgun Mic with Directional Sound Pickup

Whereas most built-in camera microphones pick up sound from all directions, this microphone utilizes a supercardioid polar pattern to focus on sound in front of it while attenuating sound from the sides and rear. Its active electronics and directional condenser element deliver more detailed audio than the mics typically found in cameras and portable recorders.

Easy Hookup to Camera

A coiled 3.5mm cable is permanently attached to the mic for fast hookup to your camera. The cable's 3.5mm TRS plug is wired in a dual-mono configuration, ensuring that the mic signal is sent identically to both input channels of your camera or portable recorder.

Long Battery Life

Pop a 9V battery in the VideoMic for up to 100 hours of operating time. The dedicated power LED changes from green to red when the battery should be replaced. The VideoMic can still function for approximately one hour once the power indicator turns red, but performance will be compromised. Use the power switch to conserve battery life during periods of inactivity.

Bass Roll-Off

The high-pass filter can be set to flat or 80 Hz to roll off low-frequency noise from common sources such as air conditioners and traffic.

Selectable Pad

To protect against distortion, the VideoMic offers a pad that reduces the signal level. Switch to the -10 dB option when loud sound sources threaten to distort your recording, use the -20 dB position to prevent extreme input levels from clipping causing clipping, or select the flat setting when routing the mic into a dedicated high-quality preamp.

Integrated Shockmount Inhibits Vibrations

Understanding that the rubber bands used in many shockmounts can snap and stretch, Rode chose to integrate a rugged Rycote Lyre suspension-style shockmount. This simplifies setup of the mic and inhibits the transfer of vibrations from the camera. Plus, the bottom of the shockmount features a camera shoe mount with a 3/8" thread, ensuring easy attachment to your camera or a boompole such as Rode's Micro Boompole (available separately).

Windscreen Minimizes Wind Noise

The VideoMic has a foam windscreen to reduce unwanted wind noise from breezes, fans, heaters, and air conditioners. For maximum reduction of wind noise in outdoor environments, consider a furry windshield such as the Rode DeadCat (available separately).

Connectivity Options

Expand the microphone's device compatibility with Rode accessories such as the SC4 and VXLR (both available separately). The SC4 is a short cable that lets you connect the VideoMic directly to a smartphone or tablet equipped with a 3.5mm TRRS jack. The VXLR adapter is the ideal solution when you want to record the VideoMic to a camcorder or mixer that has XLR inputs.

Rode Dead Cat Wind Muff for VideoMic, NTG1 and NTG2 Microphones

The Rode Dead Cat Wind Muff is a zip-on furry cover with deep artificial fur that fits snugly over the Rode VideoMic or the NTG1 and NTG2 microphones. The Wind Muff greatly reduces wind noise when recording in windy conditions.

Versatility

The Rode Dead Cat Wind Muff is compatible with the Rode VideoMic, NTG1 or NTG2.

Design

In combination with the miniscreen, the Rode Deads Cat Wind Muff's furry, zip-on cover design drastically decreases wind noise during inclement weather.

Is it compatible with the Sony A6000?
Asked by: Bruce
I have the Sony A7RIII and it works great with that. I’m not sure about the A6000 but as long as it has a hot shoe to connect to, I’d think it should work fine. This mic works great too. I’ve used it on a variety of shoots and love the quality!

question

I have a Canon rebel EOS T1I and I really want to purchase this kit but my camera doesn't have a external mic jack, is there anything I can I get so that I would be able to still use everything or would the kit only work when it is hooked up to a camera?
Asked by: Eric W.
This kit could be used in conjunction with a portable audio recorder. The audio from the recorder could then be synced using software when editing the video on the computer.

will this work with Lumix FZ300?
Asked by: Kitty
This should be no problem. Newer versions of the Lumix have the proper 3.5mm input jack so using the boom pole should work fine. Also, the standard shoe mount will accept direct mounting on the camera.
