View Full Description
The Rode VideoMic Pro is based around a matched pair of high sensitivity 1/2" cardioid condenser capsules in a coincident XT pair providing a wide stereo image with natural depth. This mic is ergonomically designed to fit on a DSLR, consumer camcorders or large sensor video camera. The integrated shock mounting system provides superior isolation from unwanted vibrations that can degrade the sound. The lightweight and robust multi-strand cable provides excellent acoustic decoupling from a camera and offers lower noise transference than the traditional audio cable.
The rear of the Stereo VideoMic Pro features user-friendly power and equalization controls including a high pass filter at 75Hz designed to cut out noise generated by air conditioning, traffic and other low frequency interference. A -10dB PAD allows the user to reduce the sensitivity of the mic when recording louder sounds such as live music or sports events.
The Stereo VideoMic Pro also features a +20dB level boost to provide a higher quality signal with DSLR cameras. When activated the often low quality camera preamp level can be reduced, resulting in a lower noise floor and clearer recording.
"Rode have once again given us an excellent new DSLR mic this time in the cuter than a button Rode Stereo Mic Pro. Super sound, crazily compact design. This is a massive improvement on the original Stereo VideoMic. Philip Bloom
"...the new Rode Stereo Video Mic is a little bit different. For starters, when you remove the foam windshield, the engineering underneath is simply breathtaking in its design and simplicity. It also solves a major problem for those who have embraced the world of dSLR video recording as the sound - if available - on dSLRs leaves rather a lot to be desired in the main." Auscam Online
