It features a Rode VideoMic with Rycote suspension system that attaches to the camera's shoe. The VideoMic is lightweight, and when mounting on a camera it does not appear in the frame. The VideoMic can also mount to Rode's boompoles for elevated audio capture. Its super-cardioid polar pattern attenuates sounds from the sides. The result is a signal that sounds closer to the camera, even when shooting in noisy environments or at moderate distances.

The included Rycote Lyre is a non-elasticated suspension structure composed of a hard-wearing thermoplastic. It is more effective at acoustically decoupling microphones from unwanted vibrations, handling and cable-borne noise than elasticated suspensions. The lyre remains effective at a wide range of temperatures and is virtually indestructible. It will never wear out, sag, snap or require any rethreading to maintain its effectiveness.

An attached, coiled cable terminates to a 3.5mm mini output connection. The VideoMic features a condenser element that utilizes a standard 9 Volt battery (sold separately). The microphone will run for approximately 100 hours on a single battery.

Key Features of the Rode VideoMic with Rycote Suspension

  • Directional Video Condenser Microphone.
  • Rycote Suspension System
  • Mounts to Standard Camera Shoe.
  • 3.5mm Mini Jack Plug
  • Studio-Quality Sound
  • 9V Battery Powered

Selectable 10 or 20dB Pad

When capturing audio in loud environments, the VideoMic offers built-in attenuation. The selectable 10 or 20dB pad lessens the microphone's sensitivity, allowing it to handle higher SPL levels without sacrificing clarity.

Barrel Canceling Pick Up

The Rode Video Mic functions as a true line plus gradient microphone with a super-cardioid pattern in the front and a barrel that cancels side audio. The result is maximum pick up of the source in highly ambient and noisy environments.

High Pass Filter Switch

A high-pass filter switch eliminates room ambience and noise below 80Hz. This results in improved intelligibility while recording around machinery, wind or close proximities.

Internal Power

The condenser element is powered with a standard 9-volt battery for up to 100 hours (approximately).
