Shotgun Condenser Microphone

The VideoMic Pro is a lightweight compact shotgun mic designed for DSLR and camcorder use.

The VideoMic Pro improves on the original VideoMic:

  • reduced size
  • reduced weight
  • improved capsule and cable isolation
  • -10dB Pad
  • +20dB boost option

Sound On Sound 2011

The high-end lift shown in the response curve allows dialogue to cut through the mix in a variety of environments, though some may find the tone very mid-rich with certain speakers. To my ears, the mic doesn’t exhibit the same level of open fidelity as the Rode NTG2 and NTG3, but it’s much more convenient than the former and much less expensive than the latter.

Off-axis rejection is good in many situations…

Despite being a shotgun, [it] isn’t as directional as something like a Rode NTG3, for example, so long-range dialogue work is a little out of its comfort zone! From six feet away with moderate background noise, as an example, the mic will work perfectly well.

The VideoMic Pro features JFET impedance converter, switchable 80Hz HPF, -10dB Pad, +20dB Boost.

The attached 3.5mm TRS plug carries a dual mono signal.

The 3/8'' thread in the base allows for boom pole or mic stand use.
