Product Discontinued

Drawing upon the advanced technological developments within the Rode manufacturing facilities, RODE has created a new video microphone. This product, like the VideoMic (VM), now the world’s biggest selling on camera shotgun microphone, is also destined to become an Industry standard and not only offers the same sound quality & performance as it’s predecessor, but also meets the industry demand for stereo recording.

Now videographers may use true ‘studio’ stereo recording techniques in the field with ease. The X/Y configuration enables the SVM to capture the true ambience of the recording space, while still offering a high level of rear rejection and low noise.

Fitted with a shoe mount, the SVM has the same low noise circuit design as the VM. The SVM offers 9V battery operation, an LED battery status indicator, a high pass fi lter switch, and a -10dB pad switch which allows for the mic to be used on most cameras with perfect level control.

You can also use the SVM as a remote mic on a stand, or a RØDE boom pole (Optional Accessory), which truly makes this versatile product well suited for all video applications including Electronic News Gathering (ENG), Weddings, Sports Events & Interviews.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convenient quality The Rode SVM is a tremendous step up in quality over the standard on-board microphones of consumer video cameras. I use mine extensively for aviation videos. I did have to add extra foam under the "dead kitten" wind muf and the muf hairs can intrude when going wide angle. It does need to be groomed. It is an adjunct to my Sennheisser gun microphones, but so much more convenient. A definite asset to my arsenal of equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strap on this bad boy! I love this little Mic. Rode know their stuff and not only are the Microphones of top audio quality they look great too. I have had many Rode Mic's over the years and I would use nothing else these days. They are solid, hard wearing, hard working - Just like us Aussie Filmakers - Not only do they produce great gear but the are Aussie, it is a no brainer - check'em out!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great mic! I use the mic mostly for outdoor video on a handycam with wide variations in audio level and environment conditions including light winds. It handles all that I have tried so far and gives great sound quality. Great battery life too. When I have done weddings just set it up and not worry for a couple of hours.
Only problem I have is the bracket does not quite raise the mic high enough above the camera. When using the dead kitten a few stray fibres sometimes get in the lens. Making a spacer will solve this (or could use a mic boom or similar off camera method)
I am not a pro video shooter but like to have quality images and sound so appreciate how well this mic performs with a minimum of fuss. I do have some background in high quality acoustics for accurate noise measurement so can really appreciate the abilities of this mic to give great outcomes for its price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Above par for this price point. After receiving this mic, I was quite surprised at the build quality. It is a solid metal construction and does not feel flimsy at all. The switches seem durable. Ease of use is very simple, no need to read the manual. It is somewhat heavier than I expected but that is due to its durable metal body.

Audio quality is exceptional for something at this price point. I had purchased it as a reference audio mic for a fixed SLR video setup but have found myself using the audio in the cut on more than a few occasions. There is a slight gain hiss when used with an SLR but that is the camera. The mic has a built in gain which will help suppress the in camera AGC to some effect.

Overall, an excellent value purchase and no complaints whatsoever.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big Claims for a Small Mic - All Met! The frequency response, particularly at the low end is surprising and pleasing. Very low b/gnd noise inclusion. After more than 30 hours of production work, am yet to replace the battery. Used mostly in studio conditions for producing training DVD's, but outside use also delivers to a high standard. Very pleased with this unit, I recommend it!
