Rode VideoMic Camera-Mount Shotgun Microphone with LED Power Switch, Attached TRA Output Cable (3.5 mm), Integrated Shoe, Pole Shockmount, 100-Hr Run time via 9V Battery, Selectable Pad, and Bass Roll-Off
Rode VideoMic Camera-Mount Shotgun Microphone is a great camera accessory for mobile journalists, Vlogger, and Run & Gun professionals. All the digital cameras come with an in-built microphone but when it comes to a detailed audio recording with great clarity, there is no match with a shotgun microphone. In that category, it is probably the best microphone for all sorts of working environments and device compatibility. Opposite to the camera microphone, it comes with directional sound pickup thanks to the Supercardioid polar pattern. The features focus on the front sound source while attenuating sounds coming from other sides. Added with active electronics and directional condenser element, you can easily use it even in crowded places. You just have to place the device in front of the source, and it will pick up noiseless audio.
Our Take on the Rode VideoMic Camera-Mount Shotgun Microphone:
Rode VideoMic Camera-Mount Shotgun Microphone gives you multiple connectivity options to the user. By purchasing additional Rode accessories like SC4 and VXLR cable, you can connect it with compatible smartphones or tablets. It has a foam windscreen that serves the dual purpose of reducing unnecessary noise and giving it more durability. Setting it with the camera is easy and you can hook up with cameras of all the major brands. It has a 3.5 mm cable that is permanently attached to the microphone. The cable is wired in a Dual-mono configuration that enables you to send a Mic signal to both input channels of the recorder or camera.
Rode VideoMic Camera-Mount Shotgun Microphone gives extended hours of performance with a 9V Battery. It has a LED indicator to showcase the battery life. The light changes from green to red once the power is left for approximately 1 hour. Even if the indicator is showing a red light, you can continue using it with compromised performance. In normal parlance, you get approximately 100 hours of battery life that is quite impressive.
Rode VideoMic Camera-Mount Shotgun Microphone is equipped with rugged Rycote Lyre suspension-style Shockmount. It makes the setup easy and also restrains camera vibration transfer. With this feature, you get excellent audio capturing in case of heavy camera vibration time like running. Additionally, there is a camera shoe mount with a 3/8" under the bottom of Shockmount. It gives great flexibility and easy to set up with your camera or boompole. You also get features like Bass Roll-Off and Selectable Pad with the product ensuring superior audio in different working environments.
