New and Improved RØDE VideoMic Pro

RØDE Microphones has announced an upgrade to its number one selling microphone worldwide, the VideoMic Pro.

Originally released in 2010, the VideoMic Pro quickly became an industry standard on-camera shotgun microphone for professionals and enthusiasts alike. With its small form factor, superior audio quality and industry first +20db level boost, it was the perfect companion for DSLR cameras as they became the go-to device for high definition video capture.

Determined to raise the bar again in 2015, RØDE’s all new VideoMic Pro will feature the acclaimed Rycote Lyre suspension system, along with an upgraded microphone capsule, improving both the physical characteristics and audio performance of the microphone.

Features :

  • All new capsule with lower noise and higher sensitivity
  • Broadcast recording quality condenser microphone
  • Compact form factor (150mm/6” length)
  • Ultra lightweight (85g/3oz)
  • 9V battery powered – over 70 hours use (alkaline)
  • Integrated shock mounting
  • Integrated foam windscreen
  • 3.5mm stereo mini-jack output (dual mono)
  • Two step High Pass Filter (flat, 80Hz)
  • Three position level control (-10dB, 0, +20dB)
  • Camera shoe mount with 3/8” thread for easy boompole mounting
  • 10 year warranty with online registration at

Special Offer from Rode

RØDE announced a deal where purchasers of a VideoMic Pro or Stereo VideoMic Pro will receive a free copy of Red Giant’s excellent PluralEyes 3 audio synchronization software ($199.00). All you have to do is purchase the mic from an authorized dealer (us!) and register it between now and the end of 2012. You will also receive a free ten year extended warranty from RØDE.

While large sensor camcorders with built-in XLR sockets are becoming increasingly popular there are still many DSLR shooters out there using less sophisticated audio setups who will benefit. The combination of a good quality mic and audio syncing software allows users to either shoot simple multi-camera setups or work with a dedicated external audio recorder in a dual system sound setup.

Dual system sound is still one of the best ways to improve your audio and by using PluralEyes syncing is fast and easy.
