RØDE VideoMic GO Shotgun Microphone $69 Delivered @ Amazon AU


Have been browsing for a good shotgun microphone and found the brilliant Rode Video Mic Go was on special with Amazon AU. The 3 camels website reporting this to be the cheapest. Its cheaper than some of the used ones in market place, so time to snatch this bargain.

Product Description
The VideoMic GO is compact and lightweight by design and delivers clear, crisp, directional audio with incredible ease of use. Its tight pickup area focuses directly in front of the microphone and reduces other surrounding sounds, ensuring that your subject is isolated from distracting background noise. The integrated Rycote Lyre shock mount isolates your microphone from bumps and vibrations that could otherwise interfere with your sound. Constructed from a single piece of hard-wearing thermoplastic, the Lyre provides superior acoustic suspension to traditional elastic solutions and will never wear out, sag or snap. It has no complicated switches or settings and is powered by your camera's external microphone input, requiring no batteries to operate, ensuring you never miss a great shot.

    Do check out the RODE Video Micro too, in the few YouTube comparisons I watched, it sounded better.

    • Here is some observation differentiating the two, taken from the site

      " So, why would you pick the VideoMic Go over the VideoMicro? The key difference is the super-cardioid polar pattern, which is more ideal for recording dialogue and other situations where you want to isolate your sound source from distracting background noise. Being longer and slightly heavier, the VideoMic GO may also be bulky on some smaller camera or smartphone rigs, so if you shoot on these formats, consider choosing the Micro. That being said, the tighter directionality of the VideoMic GO makes it more suitable for use with a boompole or for recording a voiceover at home, making it a very versatile mic in its price range."

  • Will this work on a GoPro + 3.5mm adapter?

  • Hey buddies, is this good for outside recording (i.e may be there is wind and noises), planning do some video recoding using my 7D MkII. Thanks

      Really depends on how much wind you're dealing with, how you will be handling the mic, what you expect in terms of priduction quality, what end result you are looking for. Depending on your needs, say a cinema short, you may at least need a dead cat and potentially a blimp with dead cat on top. OTOH, this would probably be fine for a youtube interview in an enclosed place with little wind.

      Yes, however, this doesn't ship with a deadcat windshield :(. You might consider buying a deadcat fur to avoid the wind noise.

      The video micro ships with a deadcat windshield.

      What will you be recording? How far away will the subjects be?

      • I am going to record a play for a charity it will be in the field where I want to capture the natural noises (i.e. birds singing, crickets etc.) but need to reduce the wind, probably 2-3 meter distance, the inbuilt mic is not good enough. Thanks.

          Will there be people talking as well?
          If you want to capture ambience maybe the VideoMicro (same price) would be better. It'll pick up a little bit more ambience and comes with a deadcat to reduce wind noise.

          • @eug: Yes, there will be 5-7 group of kids talks, and some of them have natural sighs and theirs voice much lower than others, I will consider the VideoMicro

              Depends how spread apart the group is, it would be better to go with VideoMicro for a wider group or VIdeoMic Go for a tighter/single person sound source.

                @lomie: For a single person, if they're going to be over a meter away I'd look at a wireless lav. The Rode Wireless Go is popular but might be pricey, this cheap Boya at $159 looks like it could do the job.

        The VideoMic GO sounds a bit low, compared to the Pro version.

        I think I'd prefer the High RØDE and let you take the Low RØDE…
