The RØDE VideoMic is a professional grade 1/2" condenser shotgun microphone designed for use with consumer video cameras and personal audio recorders.The integrated Rycote Lyre based shock mounting system isolates the VideoMic capsule and electronics from its all-metal shoe 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.Its standard sized shoe mount also includes a 3/8" thread in the base for easy mounting on a boom pole or stand.By employing a super-cardioid polar pattern the VideoMic becomes highly directional, focusing on the subject in front of the camera, and minimising any surrounding sounds.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.A -10dB and -20dB level attenuation (or PAD), selectable from inside the battery compartment, allows recording of loud sound sources, such as live music or motorsport.The RØDE VideoMic directional on-camera microphone is designed in Australia and covered by RØDE Microphones' industry leading 10 year warranty.

  • Pretty good
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Pijitoe - 17 juin 2016

    I am reviewing this item because I think I have to to get 25 bonus points. I have only used it a couple of times. Good points are it captures more bass than the built in mic in my Sony RX10 Mkii. It also does not get as much of the zoom motor and other noise as the built in. It can cut out air conditioning noise that has been a problem for me in the past. The only negative is that my voice from behind it seems to have a strange timbre to it. I have not used it enough to say more about this.

  • Decent Microphone. Batteries needed
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Fluffy - 10 février 2018

    The microphone itself is good and picks up noise from pretty far away, however it is not very directional and anyone talking or even walking/typing/rustling papers around it will get picked up on this mic. Also, it doesn't say anywhere on this page "Batteries Not included." I was a little disappointed when I got back to the office to use it and saw that I had to run back out and buy a 9V battery. All in all, depending on what you are using it for, good microphone for the price.

  • Great mix at a good price
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Andr3w - 31 juillet 2020

    For what this is designed for, it’s a great product. When I’m run and gunning, I attach this to my Sony a7sii. When I get to a location for interviews, I attach it to the end of my Rode boom pole, and run an XLR to 3.5 cable to my Sony FS5. I have more expensive boom mics, but the ease of only needing 1 when shooting A and B cams with either 3.5 or XLR throughout the day is nice. I just purchased the Rode Go wireless mics with lavs too so I feel this will be an awesome pair.

  • Great for videographers who want to improve sound
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Brianna - 4 février 2017

    I recommend this videomic much more than the RODE videomicPRO because why so spend so much money on just a videomic? Honestly videomics in my opinion just make the sound quality more crisp and this does that exactly with a more affordable price. And it does not come with batteries so you need to buy certain batteries which will only cost you another $3. If you just want a good sound quality but don't want to spend too much on a videomic, I totally recommend this!

  • Good Results
    Verified BuyerReviewed by KathyO - 31 mars 2019

    I have begun using my own camera for videos and interviews, so sound is a big concern. My built-in mic is of course not strong enough and can't filter out noise, and the sound quality was really unprofessional. I needed something that remedied that and was also affordable. This Rode mic was such a noticeable improvement. It was so simple to mount and the sound wuality and clarity is great. It picked up sounds well from across the room and from different directions. I still have to figure out how to deal with noise outfoors better-- maybe buying another filter cover, but it worked fairly well when recording my subject on the front porch. It was just fine after doing some sound editing for that segment. I would definitely recommend this mic until you can get something with more capabilities. I am pleased with the purchase.
