Your Price: $229.00


Røde Part Number: VideoMic Pro


The RØDE VideoMic Pro is a true shotgun microphone designed for use with camcorders, DSLR cameras and portable audio recorders as a source of primary and reference audio. At the heart of the VideoMic Pro is a high resolution 1/2" condenser capsule that provides broadcast-quality audio via a 3.5mm minijack connector (outputting the mono signal to both left and right channels). A super-cardioid polar pattern ensures that surrounding audio is minimised, and your recording is focused on the subject in front of the camera.

VideoMic Pro Features:

  • Broadcast recording quality condenser microphone
  • Compact form factor (150mm in length)
  • Ultra lightweight 85g
  • 9V battery powered - over 70 hours use
  • Integrated shock mounting
  • Integrated foam windscreen
  • 3.5mm stereo mini-jack output
  • On camera power, level and filter controls
  • Camera shoe mount with 3/8” thread for easy boompole mounting
  • 10 year extended warranty when you register online at www.rode.com/warranty
  • An innovative suspension system separates the VideoMic Pro capsule and electronics from its mount, providing isolation from external physical factors that may cause unwanted rumble and vibrations in the microphone. A lightweight and flexible yet robust multi-strand cable provides significantly lower noise transference than traditional audio cable while ensuring a high definition signal.

    Easily accessible on the rear face of the microphone are the power, filter and level controls. In addition to the microphone's native 40Hz-20kHz response a selectable high-pass filter at 80Hz is available, which will prevent low end noise such as air conditioners and traffic from being recorded.

    Below these controls are the level settings, which attenuate or boost the recorded level as required. The -10dB level attenuation (or PAD) is ideal for recording loud sound sources, such as live music, motorsport, or interviews where the subject is very close to the camera. The +20dB level boost is designed for use with DSLR cameras, allowing the user to reduce the camera's preamp level (or mic-input level), effectively reducing the amount of noise generated by the camera's comparatively low quality audio circuitry.

    The microphone uses a standard sized shoe mount for on camera use, and features a 3/8" thread in the base of the mount for easy boom pole mounting.

    The VideoMic pro is battery powered, and provides over 70 hours recording from a single 9V battery.
