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.
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.

The RØDE VideoMic is designed and made in Australia.
