Rode VideoMicro Compact On Camera Microphone

  • WS9 Deluxe Windshield
  • Lyre Shoe-Mount

The VideoMicro is a compact microphone designed to improve the audio quality of your videos.

It incorporates a high-quality cardioid condenser microphone capsule for great quality audio recordings when used with a wide range of cameras.

A directional microphone, the VideoMicro reduces distracting peripheral sounds and focusses on the audio in front of the camera.

Its pickup is more forgiving than RØDE’s other on-camera microphones providing a more natural sound when recording indoors.

Perfect for capturing incredible audio to accompany inspiring vision.

The microphone body is made from aluminum, giving it a high level of RF rejection, and is finished in RØDE’s high-grade ceramic anti-glare black coating.

Included with the VideoMicro is a camera shoe mount featuring a Rycote Lyre shock mount.

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.

Also included is the WS9 synthetic furry wind shield with foam inner cell, designed for use in outdoor scenarios where wind and environmental noise can inhibit recordings.

Optionally available is the RØDE SC7, a TRS to TRRS cable that allows the VideoMicro to be used with smartphones, to capture crystal clear, directional sound for video and video applications such as Periscope.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the little mike, so clear even in the wind. I purchased this from the VideoGuys to use on my Sony A7r-II and was not sure if it would work properly.
It does !
It gives excellent quality sound, even in the wind, and great volume, controlled within the camera.

It is a great addition if you are doing video work on the camera and not too intrusive on the camera.
Thanks guys.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Mono Sound In A Small Package I needed a small mono external mic for a gig on an Sony ARII to grab basic sound, needed to be better than internal mic. Did the job perfectly as camera was able to power the mic fine. Then tried it on other setups - many cameras refused to power the mic - they would need a mic with an internal battery. Also tried with the OSMO hand held, and here, it worked half the time. Sometimes it would record fine, but other times got massive amounts of system noise - which other external mics did not create - so the VideoMicro and OSMO combination is not reliable. Note also the windshield is pretty basic and wont stop wind noise as well as some other more expensive Rode systems.
