Amazing Camera-mount Video Mic Value
The RODE VideoMicro is a compact camera-mount microphone that improves the audio quality of the videos you shoot. The VideoMicro incorporates a high-quality condenser microphone capsule with a versatile cardioid pickup pattern that corresponds to what the camera sees, focusing on the audio in front of the camera while attenuating distracting off-axis sounds. Because its polar pattern is more forgiving than many other on-camera mics, it captures a more natural sound when recording indoors. The VideoMicro’s body is made from aluminum for durability and a high level of RF rejection, and it’s finished in RODE’s high-grade ceramic black anti-glare coating.
Comes with everything you need
The VideoMicro comes complete with a camera shoe mount that incorporates a Rycote Lyre shockmount. Featuring a hard-wearing thermoplastic suspension structure, the Lyre shockmount is much more effective at minimizing cable-borne and handling vibrations than traditional elastic suspensions. The Rycote Lyre is virtually indestructible and will never sag, snap, wear out, or require rethreading to remain effective. The VideoMicro also includes the WS9 synthetic furry windshield. With its foam inner cell, the WS9 is designed for outdoor use to diminish wind and environmental noise that can ruin your recordings. Sweetwater’s opinion: with its stellar performance, robust build quality, top-shelf included accessories, and gentle price tag, the RODE VideoMicro is a tremendous value — and a must-have for anyone who shoots video for weddings, interviews, family events, and more!
