All integral parameters feature dedicated hardware controls, so you never have to go searching through menus to quickly change a setting. A dedicated camera output lets you send a mic-level signal to your camera's audio input to create a reference track for easier synching in post, while the dedicated headphone output allows you to monitor your audio.
Key Features
  • Designed for use with video and DSLR cameras and can be screwed to the bottom of a DSLR camera with jacks and controls that stay out of the way 
  • Simplified interface with controls on hardware switches and knobs instead of menus, for quick adjustment during a take

  • Microphone level camera output allows you to record the same audio to the camera for easy synchronization in your editor 
  • Records to SD/SDHC/SDXC media 
  • Individual headphone and camera outputs allows you to monitor recording with headphones while sending another output to the camera

Rode Video Mic

$35 per day *

Key Features
Barrel Canceling Pick Up
  • The Rode Video Mic functions as a true line plus gradient microphone with a super-cardioid pattern in the front and a barrel that cancels side-audio. The result is maximum pick up of the source in highly ambient and noisy environments. 
Selectable 10 or 20dB Pad
  • When capturing audio in loud environments, the VideoMic offers built-in attenuation. The selectable 10 or 20dB pad lessens the microphone's sensitivity, allowing it to handle higher SPL levels without sacrificing clarity. 
High Pass Filter Switch
  • A high-pass filter switch eliminates room ambiance and noise below 80Hz. This results in improved intelligibility while recording around machinery, wind or close proximities. 
Internal Power
  • The condenser element is powered with a standard 9-volt battery for up to 100 hours (approximately).
