Pristine, professional sound for your videos.

The R˜DE VideoMic is a professional-grade shotgun condenser microphone. Based on the latest film industry technology, the R˜DE VideoMic is designed specifically for use with high-quality digital video cameras. The microphone offers low noise and has an unusually wide bandwidth for its size. It is ultralightweight, yet rugged as a result of its ABS construction. Powered by a standard 9V battery with a low-battery LED-status indicator and switchable high-pass filter to reduce unwanted low-frequency rumble. The R˜DE VideoMic attaches to any camcorder that has a standard hot-shoe fitting and has a stereo mini jack for audio output.


The VideoMic is designed by R˜DE to operate with a 9V battery. The battery is conveniently located within the support arm of the microphone. A fully removable access cover and an insertion mechanism enables easy loading. The battery will provide more than 100 hours of continuous use because of the mic's low power consumption of only 5.0 mA.

Output impedance

This R˜DE video shotgun microphone will operate satisfactorily into a load impedance as low as 1 kOhms. If a load below this is used, the output signal level will be reduced.
Requires phantom power.

Comments about Rode Microphones VideoMic Shotgun Condenser Microphone:

This is a great mic. A lot of boom for your buck. this is better than almost any built in mic. We recorded a video where someone was on a balcony 3 stories above us. the sound seemed to even out very nicely with no editing at all. however it only has a 1/8" jack which if you connect an extension on it you get a little bit of buzz. So if you want to use this as an over head boom, you need to convert it to XLR that way you don't get as much buzz. Over all, you get more than what you pay for, if you know what you're doing.
