Designed for run-and-gun shooters, vloggers, and mobile journalists who need effective reduction of wind noise during outdoor shoots, this B&H Kit includes the compact Shure VP83F LensHopper shotgun microphone with batteries and an integrated 24-bit / 48 kHz audio recorder and a furry windshield developed by Shure and Rycote to attenuate wind noise by up to 25 dB.
Gain, volume, and bass roll-off controls give you the flexibility to optimize your signal quality right at the mic. In addition, the microphone's built-in Rycote Lyre shockmount system provides isolation from vibration and mechanical noises while enabling mounting compatibility with camera shoes and tripods.
The Shure VP83F LensHopper merges all the functionality of the VP83 camera-mount shotgun mic with a self-contained recorder and a dedicated headphone jack. Designed for mobile journalists, vloggers, and run-and-gun shooters, it features a backlit LCD screen with easy access to the mic gain, bass roll-off, metering, and more.
With its integrated WAV audio recorder and separate audio output, the VP83F allows convenient redundant recording to a microSDHC card (available separately) and your camera while supporting real-time headphone monitoring.
Featuring rugged metal construction while remaining compact and lightweight, the VP83F is designed to be a reliable partner for your portable video rig. Its integrated shockmount attaches directly to your camera or tripod and impedes camera handling noise and vibrations transferred through a tripod. To reduce noise from light winds, the VP83F is equipped with a foam windscreen. A detachable coiled 3.5mm TRS cable is supplied for easy connection from the mic to your camera.
The Shure Fur Windjammer for VP83 and VP83F LensHopper Microphones is designed to fit snugly over the foam windscreen of a VP83 or VP83F LensHopper shotgun mic. It is made of synthetic fur and provides up to 25 dB of additional wind noise reduction. The Fur Windjammer was developed by Shure with Rycote.
