Description

This compact, directional, on-camera condenser microphone has proven very useful in the age of DSLR shooting. Easily attached to your camera with a shoe mount, or even a boom with its 3/8""" mount, this directional mic will hear what you point it at. Whether you're looking for a decent scratch track, or you need to fly low profile and only go with an on-board mic, this inexpensive option from Rode can do the job.

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.

The Rode VideoMic Pro with Rycote Lyre Shockmount is a supercardioid condenser shotgun microphone that terminates in a 1/8" stereo mini-jack (dual mono), includes an integrated shockmount, and an integrated foam windscreen. It can be used to capture audio for camcorders, DSLR, and portable recorders as a source of primary and reference audio.
The VideoMic Pro has been upgraded from earlier models with a 1/2" condenser capsule that provides broadcast-quality audio. Its 1/8" stereo mini-jack connector (outputting the mono signal to both left and right channels) delivers low self-noise of just 14 dB. A supercardioid polar pattern ensures that surrounding audio is minimized, and your recording is focused on the subject in front of the camera.
In addition, the Rycote Lyre-based shockmount is built from a single piece of hard-wearing thermoplastic. It 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. This suspension will never wear out, sag or snap.
Easily accessible on the rear face of the microphone are the power, the filter, the level controls and a selectable high-pass filter at 80 Hz. The filter will prevent low-end noise such as air conditioners and traffic from being recorded. Furthermore, the -10 dB (or pad) is suitable when recording loud sound sources such as live music, motorsports, or interviews, where the subject is very close to the camera. There is a +20 dB level boost designed for use with DSLR cameras, so the user can reduce the camera's preamp level, effectively reducing the amount of noise generated by the camera's audio circuitry.
The Rode VideoMic Pro 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.

-9V battery powered with over 70 hours use (alkaline)
-Camera shoe mount with 3/8" thread for easy boom-pole mounting
-Compact form factor is only 6.7" length
