Incredible Audio Quality

The Rode VideoMicro compact microphone is designed to improve the audio quality of your videos. It incorporates a high-quality cardioid condenser microphone capsule for great quality audio recordings when used with a wide range of cameras. The Rode VideoMicro exhibits strong directional quality and hence reduces distracting peripheral sounds and focusses on the audio in front of the camera. Its pickup is more forgiving than other RODE on-camera microphones providing a more natural sound when recording indoors. Perfect for capturing incredible audio to accompany inspiring vision.

Exceptional NoiseNOISEThe appearance of random pixels scattered over a photo, similar to the grain effect seen in film photography, which degrades photo quality almost as if it is stained. It occurs when taking photos in low-light conditions, with very slow shutter speeds on high sensitivity (ISO) settings. It is caused by amplification done by the sensor when high ISO settings are used. You can counteract digital noise by lowering the sensitivity (ISO) setting of your camera - the lower the ISO setting, the lower the noise in the image. Typically cameras with larger sensors (like full-frame cameras) will inherently produce less noise due to larger pixels on the sensor. Reduction with Rycote Lyre

The microphone body is made from aluminium, giving it a high level of RF interfererance rejection, and is finished in RØDE’s high-grade ceramic anti-glare black coating. Included with the Rode VideoMicro is a camera shoe mount featuring a Rycote Lyre shock reduction system with a suspension structure composed of a hard-wearing thermoplastic, far more effective at minimising unwanted vibrations, handling noise and cable-borne noise than traditional elastic suspensions. Virtually indestructible, the Rycote Lyre will never sag, snap, wear out or require rethreading to maintain its effectiveness. Also included is the WS9 synthetic furry wind shield with foam inner cell, designed for use in outdoor scenarios where wind and environmental noise can adversely affect recordings.

Multiple Connectivity Options

Optionally available is the RØDE SC7, a TRS to TRRS cable that allows the Rode VideoMicro to be used with smartphones, to capture crystal clear, directional sound for video and video applications such as Periscope.
