Product description

Style Name:Microphone

Product Description

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 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. Its standard sized shoe mount also includes a 3/8" thread in the base for easy mounting on a boom pole or stand. (note that cameras with proprietary sized mounts require an additional adaptor.) Its super cardioid polar pattern is 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 VideoMic directional on-camera microphone is covered by RØDE Microphones' industry leading 10 year warranty.

Firstly, The RØDE VideoMic Microphone is a BRILLIANT microphone. It provides clear, crisp, professional quality audio, at a very good price.

This microphone is capable of doing a lot more than on camera work. I have used this product with my PC, for contacting my friends, and communicating with people when playing games online. As well as this, this microphone is great at being used as a boom mic for a video.

This microphone tops any built-in microphones on cameras or phones, and it is a great way to improve quality of videos for things like YouTube, Twitch or general video projects in general.

Pros of this microphone:
- Brilliant, Crisp, Sharp Audio
- Great price for performance
- Works with many platforms:
- PC
- Mac
- Camera
- Audio Recorder
- Phone (with adapter)
- Uses standard 3.5mm jack connector
- Shock mount reduces knocks and bumps greatly
- Foam covering reduces noise from wind quite well
- built in cable stretches well
- built in high pass filter

Cons of this microphone:
- audio cable isn't replaceable
- requires 9v battery for power
- quite large - can sometimes be seen in the camera shot (when mounted on hotshot mount) when using wide angle lens

This product is amazing for the price, can't recommend it enough!

The main reason I purchased this microphone was that it is unidirectional, and hence ideal for recording music in a relatively noisy environment. I have found that this works very well as evidenced by the video filmed with a Panasonic SD90 outside a pub at a music festival, with quite a lot of noise going on at either side of the performer. Unfortunately I can't give you a link to the video, as external links are not allowed in Amazon reviews. However if you Google "Sue Stevens Laddie 2012" you should come across a YouTube video titled "Dear Laddie, Sue Stevens, Bromsgrove Folk Festival, July 2012". If you can find this video have a look and see what you think. If you are wondering why I didn't jsut upload the video to the "video review" here, I tried, but it just didn't work.

The directional microphone needs to be used with care. For example if you are interviewing someone who points out something of interest behind you, it's no good panning round as they continue to talk, as their voice will fade away!

The other reason for purchasing this microphone was to improve sound quality and to lessen the effect of wind. The sound quality of the built in microphone of the Panasonic camcorder was pretty good, and so it was difficult to recognize a significant improvement in general recording, but it did noticeably overcome problems of recording in a light breeze.

The microphone is attached to a mounting system that is designed to cut out camera and it is questionable as to how long the rubber loops will last. However another reviewer has made the point that these can easily be replaced by inexpensive O-Rings and so this is not a problem.

I've used it a few time indoors for filming Youtube and I like the sound quality of my voice compared to audio coming out of a camera. I have yet to use it outdoors, hence 4 out of 5 stars but it's a good mic for the price and if you are just starting out.

Not too bad but my advice is pay a bit more and get a better quality microphone - it is worth it in the end.

Yes a very good product, I've had this for some years now and had no problems with it. I would say though it is a very sensitive microphone and if you not careful you will get interference from the camera itself.
I would recommend to anyone after good and clear sound.
Thanks

I bought this mic after reading several reviews on the internet.
Basically I need to video the speeches at a wedding reception and I know the venue is large with quite a bit of reverberation due to the size and height of the ceiling. I know the built in mic which is fine for ordinary use would struggle to record the voices properly so I needed a directional mic.
I have done some tests at the venue with the Rode Videomic and there is a noticeable improvement over the built in mic.
This mic is a good compromise for recording voice overs on video without going to the greater expense of a clip on radio mic. Rode VideoMic camcorder microphone

Nice product, very rapid delivery.
I use this Rode mike on a Canon HV20 whenever the situation needs better sound control.
Often I can film without this external mike, and then enjoy the small size and mobility of the bare HV20. However, the internal mike cannot cope if the wind is blowing. Also the internal mike points skywards and picks up planes that my ears do not notice. Also the Canon's internal mike seems to distort base sounds.
In any of these cases I screw the Rode mike onto the HV20, and plug little earphones into my ears to monitor the sound. It makes the HV20 more cumbersome to handle but this inconvenience is nothing compared with the better control over sound recording.
