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 Micro Boompole provides ultimate boom pole performance in a convenient and portable size.
Intuitive twist locks allow the Micro Boompole’s three sections to smoothly extend to 2063mm (6¾’), while the ergonomic grip provides comfort during use.
It is ideal for use to connect a RÃ˜DE VideoMic, Stereo VideoMic or VideoMic Pro when the microphone is mounted on a boompole, or away from the camera or recorder.
The VC1 can also be used as a high quality headphone extension cable.
