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 an all-new 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) with an incredibly low self-noise of just 14db. A super-cardioid polar pattern ensures that surrounding audio is minimised, and your recording is focused on the subject in front of the camera.

The integrated Rycote® Lyre® based shock mounting 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. Constructed from a single piece of hard-wearing thermoplastic, the Lyre® provides superior acoustic suspension to traditional elastic solutions, and will never wear out, sag or snap.

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.

Small and compact enough to mount on my GH4 when the camera is mounted on a PILOTFLY three axis stabiliser. Compared to my Rode stereo pro mic all I can say is the sound quality is not quite as good as the pro which when you consider the pro is roughly three times the price.

So far so good but for use to record bands live on a decent camera the sound can be a bit flat. That could be a learning exercise...

I use on a Panasonic X920 camcorder,which already has good audio.The GO is good for subjects within a metre,interviews,etc. For ambient sound,there's too much background. No use on camera auto mode. I'll change to a more expensive mic.

Tried this on a couple of vlogs and it does the job quite well haven't sorted some of the levels properly yet so I'm stil getting used to it.

I use this product when conducting interviews or clips for youtube projects and it does the job, improvement on internal mic and does get rid of some of the background noise

Wanted to position my Rode Mic off camera, this cable is perfect to do just that.

Best price hands down. Thank you, CameraWorld! As far as the RODE, all good so far!
