  3. RØDE - VIDEOMIC PRO Compact Shotgun Microphone - Angle_Zoom
    Top comment

    "Great Shotgun Microphone for Vlogging...The audio quality of this microphone is great, and it is Made in Australia. Please note that this is NOT A STEREO MICROPHONE, it is a DUAL MONO MICROPHONE, which is a common arrangement in shotgun microphones....this is a great microphone for vlogging and indoor use but it has three big flaws 4 if you are a fan of wireless: 1) picks up a lot of background noise a/c, fridge hums, trains, even small fans 2) if using a deadcat changing the battery is a nuisance. 3) does not auto turn on and most cams will not pick up the new live signal prior to starting the recording so if you forget to turn on the microphone you will have to stop your recording and turn the mic on and restart. 4) its not a wireless system so its versatility for interview style footage is not great without additional work, cables boom stand etc."

    Product Description

    The RØDE VideoMic Pro is a true shotgun microphone designed for use with camcorders, DSLR cameras and portable audio recorders as a source of primary and reference audio. At the heart of the VideoMic Pro is an all-new 1/2” condenser capsule that provides broadcast-quality audio via a 3.5mm minijack connector (outputting the mono signal to both left and right channels) with an incredibly low self-noise of just 14db. A supercardioid polar pattern ensures that surrounding audio is minimised, and your recording is focused on the subject in front of the camera.
