  1. 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 we have an excellent backup source in case there are problems with the external audio recorder.

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

  2. Rode NTG-1 Shotgun Microphone

    rode-ntg-1

    This Rode NTG-1 shotgun microphone uses 24-48v phantom power.  Moderate rejection of off-axis sounds and great SNR make it a great all-purpose shotgun mic.  Less “hot” than typical shotgun mics from manufacturers like Sennheiser, this mic is a perfect match with cameras and recorders with sensitive preamps.

    Includes a low roll-off switch for rumble and wind reduction.  We send ours with a windscreen and a shockmount with 3/8″ mounting threads, for easy attachment to your boom pole or camera shoe.
