Product Description

Style Name:Microphone

Product Description

Building on the success of the VideoMic Pro, which launched in early 2011 and quickly became the defacto standard for DSLR on-camera audio, and RODE’s original Stereo VideoMic, the new Stereo VideoMic Pro provides a high quality stereo option for videographers, and is ideal for recording music, and the atmospheric ambience essential in building a realistic audio scene. Based around a matched pair of high sensitivity ½”cardioid condenser capsules in a coincident XY pair, the Stereo VideoMic Pro provides a wide stereo image with natural depth. The Stereo VideoMic Pro builds on the feature set of the VideoMic Pro, with an ergonomic form factor perfectly suited to DSLR, consumer camcorders and large-sensor video cameras. The integrated shock mounting system provides superior isolation from vibration and mechanical noise that can otherwise degrade the recording quality. Additionally the lightweight yet robust multi-strand cable provides excellent acoustic decoupling from the camera and offers significantly lower noise transference than traditional audio cable. The user friendly designed rear of the microphone body features the power and equalisation controls, including a high pass filter at 75Hz which is designed to cut out the noise generated by air conditioning, traffic and other undesirable low frequency interference. A -10dB PAD allows the user to reduce the sensitivity of the microphone, making it suitable for recording loud sound sources such as live music or at sporting events. Like the VideoMic Pro, the Stereo VideoMic Pro features a +20dB level boost specifically designed to provide a higher quality signal with DSLR cameras. When activated, the typically low quality camera preamp level can be reduced, resulting in a lower noise floor and much clearer recording.

I have a log of microphones and have done music performance / recording professionally for years so I know quality when I find it.

I had been through and tested a number of other mics, but if you want the best ambient sound captured this is definitely the one to go for.

One of the main reasons I bought this was that it plugs into the Canon 1000D as a stereo mic and avoids the common problem with AGC (Automatic Gain Control) Let me explain;

The Canon DSLR Cameras come with a rubbish built-in mic for videos. It's there so that it has one out of the box, but the money has certainly gone into the camera and not the mic. The problem comes when most mics are a mono (single track) sound which leaves it up to the canon to decide what to do with the other side (i.e. stereo being L + R ) Now the canon will use the built-in mic as the other side for stereo, but in order to control the levels of sound recording, they use Gain control to adjust the levels according to the sound input from your external mic. This means you're going to get a lot of hissing and static, because the sound levels can change just too quickly to avoid it.

The Stereo videomic from Rode eliminates this problem completely, and makes this a no-brainer if you want to record great sound on a DSLR, and have the budget to buy it. Anything else is a rubbish solution by comparison without making your own inputs, forcing a mono mic to input sound to both channels - but then it won't be true stereo. (I've experimented with this myself, successfully. It is OK for voice only, but rubbish for ambient sounds) hope this helps

Poor quality audio adversely affects video. An external microphone is essential for higher quality video recording. Research the subject to understand whether a shotgun mic (ideal for e.g. isolating vocals in an interview situation) or a stereo microphone is what you need (for ambient noise recording, e.g. of a concert). You may need both a shotgun and a stereo mic.

I also own the previous version of this product which is much bigger. I bought the new stereo videomic pro because it is lighter and more compact, making it more suitable for use with a DSLR or compact camcorder. It offers much better audio quality than the on-board camera's microphone. It allows you to add a "dead cat" to block out wind noise (ideal if you film outdoors and actually want to hear what you are recording when you play it back, rather than hear distorted wind noise - which is nigh on impossible to sort out in post production - you may be able to lessen the problem, but you will not get perfect audio and it is very time consuming; much better to record the audio correctly in the first place!). The green light tells you when it is on and this turns red when the battery is low. Audio quality is excellent. It is well made and backed by the RODE warranty.

Was originally going to buy the videomic pro then noticed this stereo version. Have it fitted to my Panasonic X900 and have to say that the audio quality now matches the video quality and so I'm well pleased. I have the "deadkitten" and with that fitted the wind noise is deadened very well - the bass cut-off filter also helps reduce wind noise even further as required. Bass response is generally excellent and sound field is spacious and you really get the "atmosphere" from recordings (something I guess would be lacking with the mono version). Even with the deadkitten fitted there are no signs of it obstructing the lens and making an unwanted appearance in your video's. So if you have an HD camcorder which has stunning images then you should really get one of these so the sound matches up too. Expensive but worth it.

Paired with my Panasonic HC-W850 camcorder it works great.

The only really issue is that is windy conditions you can hear a ringing noise as it moves about. I have the dead kitten on so the wind noise itself isn't there, just the occasional ringing sound from the mounting.

Also it picks up the sound of your mobile phone easily so remember to turn it off before recording or you will ruin your video.

I like it overall.

Many of the currently (2013) available DSLR and small system cameras from mid range up now have microphone sockets. Until recently I made do with the onboard microphones, but especially in smaller classical venues I record in, I was finding the sound quality not quite up to par, and often too much affected by my pressing buttons or adjusting the lens.

This little mic features switchable high pass filter to cut out air con, mains hum, traffic and floor vibrations, attenuator and gain boost switch (often a real help dealing with low quality mic preamps on DSLRs) and the capsule unit is fully shock mounted to further reduce unwanted noises messing up your recording.

I was a little surprised to find it needed a 9V battery, but this will supply power for 100 hours of recording, and the power light turns from green to red when you have about 10 hours record time left, so you shouldn't get any nasty shocks running out suddenly!

The sound quality is much improved on the onboard mics - no longer can I hear my own breathing in recordings, either. If you care about the sound in your videos, this mic is a no brainer at £100.00 or so.
