The RODE 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.

Pro-Quality On-Camera Shotgun Mic
Get Broadcast-Quality Audio in your Video.
Great sound is the key to great video. With the VideoMic Pro, you'll be able to easily record professional sounding, focused, hiss-free audio right in-camera.
- Easy to use. Fits to your camera's hot shoe mount, connects via 3.5 mm jack input
- Mono shotgun design gives focused and directional sound perfect for capturing speech
- Revolutionary +20dB mode means hiss-free recordings straight to your DSLR, with no preamp required
- Provides a remarkable 70 hours battery life with one 9V alkaline battery
Make Your DSLR Sound Great
VideoMic Pro's +20dB mode is a World-first, and means you can turn down your DSLR's input sensitivity for clean, hiss-free professional audio right in-camera - no additional pre-amp required.
Easy to Use and Incredible Battery Life
Simply insert 9V battery, connect to your camera's 3.5 mm jack input, and switch it on. VideoMic Pro screws snugly into the camera's hot shoe mount and has extraordinary battery life - over 70 hours on one alkaline battery.
Directional Sound Means Pro Audio
The VideoMic Pro's mono shotgun design picks up what's in front of it and minimises unwanted sound coming from behind and to the side - perfect for capturing speech in noisier environments.
Rich Sound, Plus High-Pass Filter
VideoMic Pro captures the authentic sound of your subjects with an extremely broad and rich frequency response of 40 Hz-20 kHz. It also features a switchable high-pass filter at 80 Hz to cut 'mud' and rumble, whilst leaving speech unaffected.
Plays Well With Others
VideoMic Pro features standard camera hot shoe mount, but includes 3/8" thread for convenient boom-pole (or 3/8" tripod head) mounting. Add the VC1 extension cable and the user can get the VideoMic Pro off-camera, closer to the speaking subject for the best possible sound.

You don't get much in the box but then you don't need much - it's a microphone at the end of the day. But a very very good one.
It is a good mic but your subject needs to be close to it to get the full benefit and sound quality from it.
It is very good the closer you are to it, more depth and clarity over the built in mic on my dslr but the quality gets less and less the further away you are from it.
The battery cover is fiddly to get back on and is not the easiest to see which way to put the battery in.
There is a small sticker on the inside of the battery compartment showing which way to put the battery in but this could be easily missed if you did not know it was there, there is also a image on the back of the battery cover showing battery position as well. This mic is more suited for interviews and vlogging etc, it will pick up noise from behind and sides but this will not be as clear as what is in front of the mic as this is what it is for. If you were looking for a more ambient sound of the area you are in then the rode videomic stereo would be better for this purpose. If you purchase this mic you will also need to get your self a 9v battery as there is not one supplied with the mic, overall i am happy with this purchase.
Please note: the microphone does not come with the required 9V battery, so buy some of these alongside this if you want to use it straight out of the box!
An expensive addition, but you're paying for a high quality piece of kit - and that's what you're getting. Highly recommended.

Takes a 9 volt battery which is a little fiddly to replace.
