Rode VideoMic Pro Overview
The Rode VideoMic Pro with Lyre Shockmount is a lightweight solution for capturing audio in windy environments that is designed for use with camcorders, DSLR cameras, and portable audio recorders. It can be used for several applications such as interviews, weddings, and more.
The B&H kit includes the Rode VideoMic Pro true shotgun microphone, a Rycote Lyre shockmount, an integrated foam windscreen, a hardwired 1/8″ stereo mini-jack output (dual mono), and a camera shoe mount with 3/8″ thread for easy boom pole mounting. At the same time, a furry wind cover for the VideoMic Pro is included and is designed to minimize wind noise while remaining acoustically transparent.
Rode VideoMic Pro Camera-Mount Shotgun Microphone
Offering lower noise, higher sensitivity, and more adjustable settings than the VideoMic, the Rode VideoMic Pro camera-mount shotgun microphone is ideal for mobile journalists, vloggers, budget filmmakers, and run-and-gun shooters looking for a cost-effective way to step up to the next level in quality.
A single 9V battery provides up to 70 hours of run time and an LED turns red to indicate low-battery status. Adjustable gain and a selectable bass roll-off make it easy to optimize the level and tone of your recording for a range of scenarios.
This compact and lightweight shotgun microphone features an integrated shockmount that mounts directly to your camera or boompole and reduces noise from various vibrations. 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.
