Rode VideoMic Pro-R


The RODE VideoMic Pro is a compact and lightweight directional on-camera microphone that delivers professional quality audio for your videos. With its all-new capsule and integrated shock mounting system, this microphone is designed to provide superior sound recording in any situation.

The heart of the VideoMic Pro is its 1/2″ condenser capsule, which boasts a low self-noise of just 14db. This allows for clear and crisp audio, even in noisy environments. The super-cardioid polar pattern ensures that the microphone captures sound from the subject in front of the camera, while minimizing surrounding noise.

The Rycote® Lyre® shock mounting system onboard the VideoMic Pro provides excellent isolation from external vibrations and rumble. Made from a single piece of durable thermoplastic, the Lyre® will never wear out, sag, or snap, ensuring long-lasting performance.

With the VideoMic Pro, you have easy access to power, filter, and level controls. The high-pass filter at 80Hz helps to eliminate low-end noise, while the level controls allow for attenuation or boost of the recorded audio. The -10dB level attenuation is perfect for loud sound sources, while the +20dB level boost is ideal for use with DSLR cameras.

This microphone is designed for versatility, with a standard sized shoe mount for on-camera use and a 3/8″ thread for easy boom pole mounting. It is also battery powered, providing over 70 hours of use from a single 9V battery.

Experience professional quality audio for your videos with the RODE VideoMic Pro. Its compact form factor, lightweight design, and advanced features make it the perfect choice for any videographer or content creator looking to elevate their audio game.

About The Rode VideoMic Pro-R
The RODE VideoMic Pro is a true shotgun microphone designed for use with camcorders, DSLR cameras and portable audio recorders as a source of primary and reference audio.

At the heart of the VideoMic Pro is an all-new 1/2″ condenser capsule that provides broadcast-quality audio via a 3.5mm minijack connector (outputting the mono signal to both left and right channels) with an incredibly low self-noise of just 14db. A super-cardioid polar pattern ensures that surrounding audio is minimised, and your recording is focused on the subject in front of the camera.

The integrated Rycote Lyre based shock mounting system separates the VideoMic Pro capsule and electronics from its mount, providing isolation from external physical factors that may cause unwanted rumble and vibrations in the microphone. 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.

Easily accessible on the rear face of the microphone are the power, filter and level controls. In addition to the microphone’s native 40Hz-20kHz response a selectable high-pass filter at 80Hz is available, which will prevent low end noise such as air conditioners and traffic from being recorded.

Below these controls are the level settings, which attenuate or boost the recorded level as required. The -10dB level attenuation (or PAD) is ideal for recording loud sound sources, such as live music, motorsport, or interviews where the subject is very close to the camera. The +20dB level boost is designed for use with DSLR cameras, allowing the user to reduce the camera’s preamp level (or mic-input level), effectively reducing the amount of noise generated by the camera’s comparatively low quality audio circuitry.

The microphone uses a standard sized shoe mount for on camera use, and features a 3/8″ thread in the base of the mount for easy boom pole mounting.

The VideoMic pro is battery powered, and provides over 70 hours recording from a single 9V battery.
