Rode VideoMic Pro Microphone

The Rode VideoMic Pro provides quality shotgun sound with a small size. It’s designed to work with most smaller cameras that use 1/8″ (3.5mm) inputs, including most mirrorless and DSLR cameras.  The integrated shockmount reduces handling noise, and the adjustable gain takes the pressure off your camera’s microphone preamps.

The Rode VideoMic Pro uses a supercardioid pattern to avoid unwanted noises from the side, and a low rolloff switch for outdoor use. The microphone mounts in a standard hot or cold camera shoe or on a 3/8″ thread.  Runs all weekend on one 9v battery, included. We use a VideoMic Pro on everything we shoot on DSLR and mirrorless cameras, even when we’re running double-system sound.  This makes for a cleaner, faster sync in post, plus an excellent backup source in case there are problems with the external audio recorder.

For most cameras, we suggest turning your gain setting down as low as is reasonable, and turning up the level on the Rode VideoMic pro to max (+20 dB).
