Shotgun Mic for High-Quality DV Cameras

By now, we all know that when the multi-award winning RODE company puts its mind to creating a mic, it's going to be solid, rugged, great sounding, and a lot less expensive than microphones that are sonically equivalent. The VideoMic represents RODE's genius for innovation in the field of designing microphones specifically for video applications.

The RODE VideoMic is a professional grade shotgun microphone. Based on the latest 'Film industry' technology, the VideoMic is designed specifically for use with high-quality Digital Video Cameras.

The VideoMic exhibits low noise and an unusually wide bandwidth for its size. It is ultra lightweight, yet rugged due to ABS construction. The VideoMic is powered by a standard 9 Volt battery and offers a Low Battery LED status indicator and a switchable highpass filter to reduce unwanted low frequency rumble.

The VideoMic attaches to any Camcorder that has the standard hot-shoe fitting and utilizes a stereo mini jack for audio output.

RODE VideoMic Features:
  • Super Cardioid.
  • Frequency Range: 40Hz-20kHz selectable HPF @ 80Hz/12dB octave.
  • Maximum SPL: 134dB
  • Studio recording quality.
  • Rugged fiber-reinforced ABS construction.
  • Condenser microphone.
  • 9 Volt battery operation.
  • Custom designed integral windscreen.
  • Low noise circuitry.
  • Low handling noise.
  • Integral hot shoe mount and zip pouch.
  • Designed and manufactured in Australia.
  • Full 2-year guarantee.

Rode VideoMIc

Amazing Mic!

This mic takes in such clear rich signal and for a bargin price! We film outdoors, indoors, in studio, it performs extremely well in every setting. It has great recognition of the "voice" over "white noise" ex: traffic, air-conditioning units, etc... I recommend this mic highly!

Great Camera Mic

The only reason I give this mic a 4.5 and not a 5 is because the connection wire to camera was not very long at all and needed to buy an extension since I was actually setting the mic up closer than the camera was. Otherwise, performed great!

If your audio is important to your video, this mic should be important to you!

I can't tell you how many semi-pro videos I've seen shot where the location audio is terrible. Many amateur filmmakers will go to great lengths to get amazing shots, as they should, and then the whole illusion is shattered by audio recorded in the little front mounted mics on the camera, usually the weaklest link in a consumer camcorder that falls somewhere under "Special effects." When I got the Rode VideoMic, it was extremely simple to integrate with its 1/8" plug. It's spring loaded, which I'm not sure what that's for, but I guess it means it won't make a sound when you're moving it around. The sound is very accurate, very "dead," if you will, and handles spoken word very well, both indoor and outdoor. While it won't take the place of your vocal mic in post, it will save you on location for its accuracy and quality.
