Rode VideoMic Overview

  • 1Description

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.

    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.

Rode VideoMic Reviews

VideoMic and Custom Windbuster Kit is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 238.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this mic I've had this microphone for about 6 months after purchasing it from B&H and I love it. I'm a new student studying Digital Cinematography online with Full Sail University and have been using this mic to record audio for my videos. The only issue I have is with the wind buster. After filming on a windy day I found that wind buster had completely blocked all sound and I ended up with wasted footage. The microphone itself is great for beginners like myself and the boom pole does its job. I definitely recommend this for people on a budget. If you need assistance with the mic there are plenty of videos online that will help you.

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 3 out of 5 by from Great sound for the price For a quick interview and a small budget this mic is a great backup boom for the price. Of course there are better mic's out there. This one feels cheap (plastic) but what can you expect for $$. It's extremely sensitive to direction and distance so it's best for close interviews. Impressed with the sound quality. Not impressed with the 8th inch connector. I'd rather the cable be independent from the unit. I've been having some issues with connection to my Canon 5D Mark ii. I'm not sure if it's the connection or the unit itself but I'll get levels but two minutes later all I hear is static on my clips. If the chord was independent I could test other ones to at least find out myself if it's a bad chord or if I need to send the mic in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very pleased Just getting into DSLR videography and boy am I glad I got this. The suspension is excellent there is no sound of my hands fumbliing around on the camera. Much better than 6D mic for indoors and out. I did not see much difference with higain switch, even outdoors with plane flying overhead - maybe that wasn't the correct test situation. Inside battery compartment is even a PAD switch to reduce sensitivity when around very loud sources. Plugged into my handheld digital recorder it showed itself even better than on the camera. I have plans now to record sound files separately and mix with video later, should be especially good for nature.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Microphone, Vast Improvement This microphone works great and has significantly improved the sound quality of my videos. Because of its directional nature, it has also cut down on extraneous sounds. Price is right, hooks up nicely to My Canon DSLR. I shoot instructional videos in which I am cameraman and on-screen talent. I wish the power on light was also on the front because I have shot clips and forgotten to turn the mic on. I guess I can't blame the product for my forgetfulness. Also the plug is a little large, and when I turn the Canon screen around so I can see myself while filming, the cord/plug gets in the way. Kind of a minor annoyance, but still...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound for small/medium projects I knew Rode made some good mic but was a little unsure about this kit. I went ahead and purchased it and by far blew my thoughts away. sound was perfect and I didn't even use the extra wind screen. No background noise at all was heard and we were in a open area with people running, biking, and walking around. The boom pole was lightweight and was easily handled above or below the subjects. I added some Velcro tights to hold the cable in place but it had enough length to plug into my DSLR. If you do any small or medium type of DSLR projects I would definitely recommend this kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected When reviewing different mics in this price range, we liked this one, but had some concerns about the indoor interview quality. But so far that's been perfect! The controls are easy to work with, it sets up easily and the sound quality has been great. We recently recorded a conference and we've had to do very little post editing compared to others in this category. The only complaint is the cable length when connecting to our camcorder. But that's more about where the input is located on our camcorder than about the mic itself. In my opinion, it's the best option for the price. And I'm so glad we purchased from an authorized dealer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shotgun mic Great overall affordable shotgun mic. So far I've been using it on a stand near the person talking for video--great audio and in using the high pass filter it really cleans up the noise. I have a preAmp but haven't needed it as the high pass filter does it's job. I attached mic to hot shoe adapter I had for light stand. I'm using this mic with a Lumix GH4 camera for 4K video. Nice to have the added boom pole and wind sock as part of the package.

question

Does this microphone work well with a Tascsm DR-22WL audio recorder?
Asked by: Zack B.
Hi Zack. I don't have that audio recorder but it works very well with my Cannon Vixia video camera. Very sensative, picks up everything and the fuzzy wind buster does its job. I video in an outdoor pavilion with all kinds of ambient noise. This really helps focus on who I want to record. Hope that is helpful.

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?

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.

question

Is the suspension system still any good when mounted with the Vello - CB-510 on the side of a camcorder?
Asked by: Amelie M.
I use this on a Canon DSLR, and unfortunately, it transmits all the autofocus noise into the mic when mounted on the flash shoe. If I'm not using a tripod, and moving while filming, I have to carry the mic in hand, off camera. I've tried several modifications and nothing has worked. I can only have the mic on camera when in manual focus, such as static situations like recording a speaker at a podium.

question

Will this work with the Canon XA 35 pro video camera? My other Rode boom mic does not.
Asked by: Pat
The Rode VideoMic is designed to work with consumer and pro-sumer cameras that feature a 3.5mm input. The XA-35 has a 3 pin XLR connection. In order to use this mic, make sure to get an appropriate interfacing adapter like the Rode VXLR; B&H# ROVXLR. To forgo the use of an adapter, consider a Rode NTG-1 condenser shotgun microphone- designed for capturing audio professionally in ENG and EFP applications.
