Overview

The R˜DE 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.

Doesn't easily plug in to mixers

  • Professional Recording

Comments about Rode Microphones Video Mic Pro:

This mic is dual mono, not standard mono or stereo. So the audio is two completely independent signals.

This can make things a little tricky if you want to run the mic through a mixer before it goes into the camera (such as using it as a boom mic on a stand)

You will need to buy a special adapter for dual mono especially if you want to convert the cable to XRL. Not just any connector/converter/extender will do.

This mic is not as "plug-and-play" as I hoped it would be, so I can't recommend it for anything other than a camera mounted mic for mobile shooting.

  • Pricey / Poor Value
  • Unreliable

Best Uses

    Comments about Rode Microphones Video Mic Pro:

    I bought this to use in video production. The shock mount is poorly designed and useless, and picks up sound from the boom pole, camera, where ever it is mounted.
    I had to redesign it with foam sheet and gaffers tape to make it usable.
    I does have great sound. I called Rode about the problems....no response!
