Rode VideoMicro on-Camera Microphone - $63 Delivered @ ACSTechnology via Amazon AU

450

Product Description
The VideoMicro is an ultra-compact microphone 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. A directional microphone, the VideoMicro reduces distracting peripheral sounds and focusses on the audio in front of the camera. Perfect for capturing incredible audio to accompany inspiring vision. The microphone body is made from aluminium, giving it a high level of RF rejection and is finished in Rode's high-grade ceramic anti-glare black coating. Included with the VideoMicro is a camera shoe mount featuring a Rycote Lyre shock mount. Featuring a suspension structure composed of a hard-wearing thermoplastic, it is far more effective at minimising unwanted vibrations, handling 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 windshield with foam inner cell, designed for use in outdoor scenarios where wind and environmental noise can inhibit recordings. Optionally available is the Rode SC7, a TRS to TRRS cable that allows the VideoMicro to be used with smartphones, to capture crystal clear, directional sound for video and video applications.

Set Contains:
1 x VideoMicro
1 x SC2 3.5mm TRS patch cable
1 x WS9 Deluxe Wind Shield

Often on sale, and lowest ever was $56.40 I believe.

    want use this on a pc, but it looks like TRRS to TRS cable cost 25 AUD, any cheaper option on cable?

    •  

      Looks like it's about $18 https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B00L6C8PNU

      If not, I got a blue yeti snowball ice for the pc and it works great.

      That being said, if you have a dedicated mic input, my understanding is that this should work without an adapter…

    •  

      Wondering, why you would want this for a PC?

      •  

        using a desktop, always have to switch to phone for teams meeting.

          If you are on a really tight budget okay.

          But a USB omni directional or different pickup would be vastly superior for PC use. Blue Yeti range as above, Rode NT USB mini, Elgato Wave etc.

      I just got a $7 splitter from Jaycar. Use the red side for mic

  •  

    Just confirming, I could use these on those external soundcards/dac with a mic input?

      so i tested mine with my phone (pixel 3xl) and not PC but it recorded just fine but I had to unplug em for playback. So if you have a dedicated input for mic - this should work fine.

      If you have a combined single 3.5mm slot, you will need an adapter

  •  

    Anyone know whether the high pass filter can be bypassed? Looking to buy this TO record engine noise

    •  

      I am curious so will ask anyway - why record engineer noise with expensive mic?

      •  

        Assist a mate with a model rail business. Recording realistic operating sounds for Australian rail.

    •  

      Doesnt have a switch, no.

      You would really need to go to the Videomic Pro range

    I don't too much about the mic but it's good to see Rode getting support as they're an Aussie company.

    •  

      Rode is huge in the YouTube/content creation scene.

  •  

    Is this a shotgun microphone? .. and good to record a meeting conversation from the side?

    •  

      Its a directional mic, so whatever its pointed at - thats where it will record (mostly, check the pickup pattern for exact).

      That being said, this has a very small barrel on it - so it would need to be pretty close to whoever is speaking.

      •  

        I own this microphone and I can confirm that it needs to be very close to the subject to sound good.

        •  

          thanks.

  •  

    Been using the mic for a while and it's great given its price.

  •  

    Can I plug this in to a Panasonic gh4? Or is the port wrong

    •  

      Yes

    •  

      Absolutely will work. GH4 has a standard mic input - so you are good to go!

        I just realised the camera in the image on Amazon is literally a Lumix haha.

        After all that will probably pass. Too many side projects as it is…

        Edit: I bought it anyway. Maybe I'll make it big with videos because of the microphone.

        •  

          It will be superior to the built in mic, thats for sure.

  •  

    I bought this a while back to upgrade my teleconference setup. Using it on a Sony A6300 and everyone comments on how good I look and sound (well, the quality of the image, not me per se :)

    Great investment as far as I'm concerned.

    •  

      That is a hell of an overkill camera for a 64x64 pixel video feed that no-one is looking at ;)

      •  

        Most of the time I join zoom meetings I don't even have my camera on, but every once in a while I'm the centre of attention so I need to look crispy :)

    Anyone else have bad background hiss? Both on phone or Canon DSLR? Have had to use software filters.
