Offering lower noise, higher sensitivity, and more adjustable settings than the VideoMic, the Rode VideoMic Pro camera-mount shotgun microphone is ideal for mobile journalists, vloggers, budget filmmakers, and run-and-gun shooters looking for a cost-effective way to step up to the next level in quality.
The superior shockmount solution
The Rode VideoMic Pro integrated Rycote Lyre shockmount system isolates the microphone's capsule and electronics from its mount, giving you immunity to vibrations that may result in muddy-sounding audio. Whether you're hand-holding, or your camera is tripod- or steadicam-mounted, vibrations can find their way to your mic and ruin an otherwise good shot. The Rycote shockmount stops those vibrations completely. Constructed from a single piece of rugged thermoplastic, the Lyre provides better acoustic suspension than traditional elastic shock mounts - plus, it will never sag, break, or wear out!
A serious shotgun mic
Spec'd with a 1/2" condenser capsule that delivers broadcast-quality sound, the Rode VideoMic Pro R is a true shotgun mic optimized for audio capture with camcorders, DSLRs, and portable audio recorders. Sporting an impressively low self-noise of just 14dB, the VideoMic Pro R is fitted with an 1/8" TRS connector that outputs the mono signal to both left and right channels of your camera or recorder. The mic's super-cardioid polar pattern minimizes off-axis audio, focusing on the subject in front of your lens.
