Rode Stereo VideoMic Stereo On-camera Microphone
Regular price 990.00

Description

The Stereo VideoMic On-Camera Microphone from Rode is a high-quality microphone designed for use with camcorders, DSLR cameras, and portable audio recorders. It features two high-resolution 1/2" condenser capsules mounted in a fixed X/Y stereo array, providing a natural stereo recording, while offering a high level of rear rejection.

The Stereo VideoMic can be used to capture environmental and ambient sounds, as well as live music. A built-in shockmounting system isolates the Stereo VideoMic's capsule and electronics from its mount, providing isolation from external physical factors that can cause unwanted rumble and vibrations in the microphone.

Other features include a standard sized shoe mount for mounting on cameras, a 3/8" thread in the base for mounting to a boom pole or stand, a high-pass filter at 80 Hz to prevent low-end noise, and a -10 dB pad that allows for the recording of loud sound sources. The Rode Stereo VideoMic is powered with a standard 9 Volt battery.

Details

Stereo X/Y Recording

The Rode Stereo VideoMic features true X/Y stereo pick up for accurate ambience reproduction. Excellent off-axis rejection minimizes residual noise.

-10 dB Pad

The Stereo VideoMic features a -10 dB Pad switch for enhanced headroom and minimal distortion.

Camera and Boom Pole Mountable

The versatile shoe mount allows the microphone to be mounted to camcorders, stands, or boom poles.

Integrated Shockmount

The Stereo VideoMic features a permanently attached shockmount with a camera mounting shoe underneath. The shockmount features replaceable rubber O-rings that protect against noise caused by abrupt movement and shock.

High-Pass Filter Switch

A high-pass filter switch eliminates room ambiance and noise below 80 Hz. This results in improved intelligibility while recording around machinery, air conditioners, and traffic.

Internal Power

The condenser element is powered with a standard 9-V battery.
