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 an Auray custom 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 Auray windshield slips over the VideoMic to deliver effective wind noise reduction and minimal high-frequency loss 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.

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.

Will this mount to and work with my Sony FDR-AX100?
Asked by: Lincoln
Yes, the Rode VideoMic is compatible for use with the Sony FDR-AX100. You may want to use a bracket such as the Vello Dual-Shoe Bracket with Grip (B&H #VECB550) to attach the mic to the camera. The Vello bracket uses the camera's tripod mount socket and also allows you to mount the camera on a tripod or other stand with the mic attached.

While interference type noise can be caused by a variety of situations, some reasons could be too long of an extension cable, low battery output, cable proximity to smartphones or wi-fi routers, and cable proximity to ac power cords.

I am getting a static like sound at times and wonder what the source may be?
Asked by: John
static sound may also happen due to your AGC or Automatic Gain Control. When there is no volume for the mic / camera to pick up (like pauses in speaking), the AGC of the camera will kick in and boost the signal to check for audio. that causes static. I always shoot with AGC off.

I am starting to do interview type video and want to improve my sound. Will I be able to use this mic on my 5DIV's and also on a boom placed over the subject or would I be better off buying a lapel mic?
Asked by: Tony
A boom mic, such as this model, is usually considered the best option for audio quality of your productions, especially if you do boom the mic in close to the subject. The Rode VideoMic & Micro Boompole Kit with Custom Windbuster, BH #ROVMRK4 would provide you with the cable extension required, as well as an outdoor windscreen at a reasonable bundle price.
