Not Included

Originally released in 2010, the VideoMic Pro By Rode 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, RODE’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.

Already implemented on the VideoMic and VideoMic GO, the Rycote Lyre suspension system is widely regarded as the best microphone shock mounting solution available. 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.

Completing the upgrade is an all-new microphone capsule, giving the 2015 VideoMic Pro even higher sensitivity and lower self-noise, ensuring crystal clear audio capture over a wider dynamic range.

“The VideoMic Pro was a revelation for DSLR users the world over, making broadcast quality audio accessible to everyone at an affordable price” comments Damien Wilson, RØDE’s Global Sales and Marketing Director. “Now we’re taking it to another level. With the Rycote Lyre upgrade, and an upgraded capsule, it’s now even better value for such an amazing broadcast quality product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from With Sony A7R II I use this aboard a Sony A7R Mk. II and it works very well. The only issue is having to share the hot shoe with the Rode when I might want to have my flash unit or LED light on there. Otherwise, excellent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Much more solid than the prevous version Got this to replace my old broken Video Mic Pro. Rode took a bit of time to update a design, that frankly was lacking in it's original version.
This new version is much better in build quality. I would say the sound is the same... As for use, I took it for a project filming across Vietnam and it did very well in a variety of situations. Just don't forget to get the dead cat(which is different from the old version) and even if you put it on, the mic is still quite prone to wind noise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of kit. I would definitely recommend this. I recently took the mic overseas and used it for shooting documentary video on location in remote area's. The sound quality is great, and the mic is extremely easy to use. Light as a feather and slips into the bag nicely.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best DSLR mic out there. This is the second Rodevideo mic pro I've bought. It's a great little unit, a piece of kit which is always in my camerabag. The little rubber bands fell off quite alot so I found using a dab of plastic superglue worked well to keep them on. I highly reccomend buying if you own a DSLR.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Necessity for low-cost DSLR video work This is an amazing microphone for the money. Using it for low cost DSLR film work it performs perfectly across a range of different video applications, from live events to interviews. Haven't yet found a single flaw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even a newbie can figure this one out Use it with Dead Cat for outside presentations and it worked a treat
