Providing the flexibility to accommodate camera-mount or boompole microphone operation for mobile journalists, vloggers, and run-and-gun videographers who need a versatile indoor/outdoor shotgun mic setup that works with any camcorder or HDSLR camera, this B&H Kit features the Rode VideoMic battery-powered shotgun microphone with a selectable pad and bass roll-off, the Rode Micro Boompole telescoping boompole, an Auray custom furry windshield, and a 10' 3.5mm TRS extension cable.
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.
The Micro Boompole from Rode is a convenient and portable three-piece boompole. Lightweight and precision balanced, the anodized aluminum pole features intuitive twist locks for smooth extension.
The Rode VC1 is a high-quality microphone extension cable that offers 10' of additional length between your mic's 3.5mm TRS connector and the 3.5mm audio input of your DSLR/mirrorless camera or recorder.
The VC1 is compatible with microphones from Rode, as well as other manufacturers. It can also be used as a headphone extension cable.
The cable is equipped with a female 3.5mm TRS jack on one end and a male 3.5mm TRS plug on the other. It is well suited for applications that require positioning the subject further away from your camera, or mounting the microphone on a boompole or stand.
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.
