The RODE 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 a high resolution 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). A super-cardioid polar pattern ensures that surrounding audio is minimised, and your recording is focused on the subject in front of the camera. An innovative suspension system separates the VideoMic Pro capsule and electronics from its mount, providing isolation from external physical factors that may cause unwanted rumble and vibrations in the microphone. Easily accessible on the rear face of the microphone are the power, filter and level controls. In addition to the microphone's native 40Hz-20kHz response a selectable high-pass filter at 80Hz is available, which will prevent low end noise such as air conditioners and traffic from being recorded. Below these controls are the level settings, which attenuate or boost the recorded level as required. The -10dB level attenuation (or PAD) is ideal for recording loud sound sources, such as live music, motorsport, or interviews where the subject is very close to the camera. The +20dB level boost is designed for use with DSLR cameras such as the Canon 5DMkII, Canon 7D, Canon 1D, Canon 550D/T2i, Canon 60D, Nikon D7000, Nikon D5100, Panasonic GH1 and Panasonic GH2. This boost in the microphone output allows the user to reduce the camera's preamp level (or mic-input level), effectively reducing the amount of noise generated by the camera's comparatively low quality audio circuitry. The VideoMic Pro provides over 70 hours recording from a single 9V battery, and is covered by RODE Microphones' industry leading 10 year warranty.
One small caveat: This is a professional mic with a 10 year warranty, but it's not for people who don't take care of their equipment. The mini-jack cable is thin and could easily catch on something and break or be ripped from the mic if you aren't careful. The "rubber band" shock mounting system--while clever and effective--is easily pulled from its mountings and could be easily lost. (One extra set of replacement bands comes with the unit.) In other words, be prepared to handle with care, and you'll no doubt get years of use from this excellent pro microphone.
Turn on the microphone. Plug it into the camera. Set the top switch on the microphone to the high pass filer setting. Set the bottom swtich to +20 dB. Turn the camera on. Go into the audio settings and switch them to manual. Set it to the lowest setting possible, then increase it four notches.
Seriously, out of the box, you're going to get a notable hiss (like in all Canon DSLR footage) and you're going to think this only adds slightly to your footage audio. If you use these settings, they are the best, and recommended from Rode (though not in the manual).
I actually made a video reviewing the mic and all the settings therein. In the video you can hear exactly what kind of output you get from each setting. You be the judged. As Amazon video reviews are 100MB or less, and mine is larger, and as they don't allow YouTube links, all I can say is to search YouTube for Alfeetoe and find my Videomic Pro review.
Hope this helps and streamlines the setup process a bit.
To those who say it's only a little better than the internal mic, I guarantee you're doing it wrong. If you just put this on top of your camera and think it's going to make a huge difference. That's an unfortunate misunderstanding that is (probably) not helped by Rode's marketing images that show it on top of a DSLR or whatever.
The BIGGEST improvement to audio quality is always going to come from getting the mic closer to the source of sound. Therefore, getting this thing OFF your camera is the biggest advantage. That being said, it is designed more so than most shotguns, to be mounted on your camera.
However, if your talent or target is far away, it's going to sound as bad or worse than your factory mic.
If your talent is less than 5 ft from the camera, it is going to be an improvement, and probably at 8 ft it is now going to be more of a fuller but similar sound to your factory mic.
Now, if you can, boom this sucker over your talent and get it within 2ft or so of their mouth and it's going to sound amazing.
I have the more expensive lavalier from Rode and I honestly prefer this mic to it whenever I can use it. Though, they both sound great!
Get this at the right price and put it into an external recorder or perhaps into your DSLR and you should be very happy. Just PLEASE make sure you understand what you're buying and how to use it properly. Get that mic CLOSE to the talent.
