Good place to rent in LIC

The staff at DV Depot are very helpful and it was a pleasure doing business with them.

Worked like a dream very helpful group thank you!

DV Depot was incredibly helpful and patient. I'd rent through them again in a heartbeat.

Great kit!

By far one of the best rentals I've made. This was a last minute decision made by my gaffer. We had a shoot during the end of the holiday week. There was a concern of availability for gear. Luckily, this kit was available. On top of that, DV Depot provided a discount since I picked up before the holiday. The lights were precisely was we needed. Glad we went with the Kino over the LEDs.

Nick was an excellent rep. The man has been in the business for over 10 years and it showed. I was in rush to pick up and get back to work, but Nick's professionalism and customer service skills were exceptional. He slowed things down, tested the kit, and even helped me fit the kit into my car, which was no small feat!

I highly recommend DV Depot for your rentals. I'll definitely rent from here again!

Nick at DV Depot was so welcoming and informative. Super helpful. Great communication and service. Will definitely rent from them again.

DV Depot was very friendly and willing/accommodating. A fantastic light I recommend to rent to anyone looking for quality lighting.

Great lens and easy pick up thanks!

The tripod is a little rusty but the rental and communication were good overall.

Equipment Replacement Value: $229

This ultracompact and ultralightweight shotgun microphone features a detachable shockmount that mounts directly to your DSLR, mirrorless, or video camera and reduces noise from vibrations and camera handling. The supplied furry windshield minimizes wind noise, making it well suited for outdoor shoots. The detachable coiled 3.5mm TRS cable ensures easy hookup to your camera, and the dual-mono output means that no channel selection is necessary on your recording device.
Durable and Small
At just 3" long and 1.5 ounces light, the VideoMicro is an unobtrusive companion for your camera. Its ceramic coating mitigates glare and its durable aluminum body aids in RF rejection.
Shotgun Mic with Directional Sound Pickup
Whereas most built-in camera microphones pick up sound from all directions, this microphone utilizes a cardioid polar pattern to focus on sound in front of it while attenuating sound entering from the rear. Its active electronics and directional condenser element deliver more detailed audio than the mics typically found in cameras and portable recorders.
Easy Hookup to Camera
A detachable coiled 3.5mm cable is supplied for fast hookup to your camera. The cable is wired in a dual-mono configuration, ensuring that the mic signal is sent identically to both input channels of your camera or portable recorder.
Runs on Plug-In Power
No batteries are required to operate the VideoMicro. Just connect the microphone to your camera or recorder, enable plug-in power on the device, and forget about swapping or charging batteries.
Detachable Shockmount Inhibits Vibrations
Understanding that the rubber bands used in many shockmounts can snap and stretch, Rode chose to utilize a rugged Rycote Lyre suspension-style shockmount. This simplifies setup of the mic and inhibits the transfer of vibrations from the camera. Plus, the bottom of the shockmount features a camera shoe mount with a 3/8" thread, ensuring easy attachment to your camera or a boompole such as Rode's Micro Boompole (available separately).
Furry Windshield Minimizes Wind Noise
The VideoMicro includes a furry windshield to minimize unwanted wind noise from breezes, fans, heaters, and air conditioners.
Connectivity Options
Expand the microphone's device compatibility with Rode accessories such as the SC4, SC7, and VXLR+ (all available separately). With either the SC4 or SC7, you can connect the VideoMicro directly to a smartphone or tablet equipped with a 3.5mm TRRS jack. The VXLR+ adapter is the ideal solution when you want to record the VideoMicro to a camcorder or mixer that has XLR inputs.
