The Rode VideoMic and Custom Windbuster Kit from B&H provides a shotgun microphone that can easily be mounted on a DSLR camera and adds an extra layer of wind noise protection. The VideoMic is lightweight, and when mounting on a camera it does not appear in the frame. Its Rycote suspension system attaches to the camera's shoe. The VideoMic's super-cardioid 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 9 Volt battery (sold separately). The microphone will run for approximately 100 hours on a single battery.

The Auray Custom Windbuster is made of an artificial fur material for maximum protection against wind noise. The Custom Windbuster slips over windscreens for added protection and measures approximately 7 to 7.5" (17.8 - 19cm) in length.

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.

    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).

  • Auray WSW-007MKII Custom Windbuster for Shotgun Microphones- 7" (18cm)

    The Auray WSW Series Custom Windbusters provide dual layered wind protection and are designed to substantially reduce unwanted broadband wind noise and vocal pops with minimal high frequency loss.

    This WSW-007MKII Custom Windbuster fits shotgun mics up to 7"(18cm) in length and is designed to be slipped over existing foam windscreens up to 5cm in thickness. The simulated fur outer layer works in tandem with the acoustic cloth inner lining to protect the microphone element from air bursts without muffling the sound.

    When used on a shotgun mic, this windbuster is effective in minimizing wind noise and plosive sounds. It is most effective in light breeze to moderate breeze conditions (4-17 mph) and users can generally expect a 30dB to 40dB reduction in wind noise with modest dampening of high frequencies. For most applications, the modest high frequency dampening is a worthwhile exchange for the substantial wind noise reduction. In addition to dual layered wind protection, the WSW-007MKII helps prevent moisture and dirt from damaging your microphone.

    The WSW-007MKII Custom Windbuster for Shotgun Microphones offers an extremely effective dual layered solution for wind protection.
