PLAY AS YOU PAY
Want high-quality audio to go with your high-quality video? No problem -- just combine the compact, lightweight Rode VideoMic Pro with your DSLR camera or camcorder, and enjoy broadcast-quality audio along with your video recordings. Designed with the "one-man-band" videographer in mind, the VideoMic Pro shotgun condenser mic works as an extension of your camera, offering an integrated shock mount and foam windshield to reduce handling noise, a 1/8" mini-jack output for compatibility with DSLR and prosumer video cameras, a supercardioid polar pattern for focused recording, and ultra-light yet rugged construction for taking it on the go.

Video-Focused Features

Allowing you to record anything at a moment's notice, the VideoMic Pro sports a straightforward three-position level control (-10 dB, 0 dB, +20 dB). Without having to change settings or mess with your camera's controls, you can flip the switch and instantly respond to changes in your recording environment.

Its integrated shock mounting, lightweight premium cable, and switchable 80 Hz high-pass filter help prevent the VideoMic Pro from picking up camera handling noise, wind swooshes, or other extraneous sounds that could compromise your recording. It's clear that this microphone is designed to toss noise overboard.

Extremely Portable in Design

Rode's VideoMic Pro is 6 inches long, weighs just 3 ounces, and is powered by 9V batteries for over 70 hours of high-end recording. It has an integrated camera shoe mount with a 3/8-inch thread for easy mounting on a boom pole. To minimize handling noise and ensure isolation, the microphone has a flexible, lightweight cable. Rugged construction sees to it that the VideoMic Pro can withstand lots of normal wear and tear over the years.

Features:

- Shotgun-style hypercardioid condenser microphone
- Compact (6" length), lightweight (3 oz.) design
- 9V battery powered, with up to 70 hours battery life (alkaline)
- Integrated shock mounting and foam windshield to cut back on noise
- Switchable high-pass filter (flat or 80 Hz) further reduces wind noise
- 1/8" (3.5 mm) stereo mini-jack output (dual mono) for compatibility with any video camera
- 3-Position level control (-10 dB, 0 dB, +20 dB) for fast adjustments on the fly
- Camera shoe mount with 3/8" thread for easy boom pole mounting
- Flexible and lightweight cable to minimize handling noise and ensure isolation

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
