The VideoMic Pro+ by Rode Microphones is an advanced version of the popular Rode VideoMic range and offers the user high quality sound recording. Still with the best-in-class Rycote Lyre suspension system on board, the VideoMic Pro+ improves on the existing VideoMic Pro capsule/line tube and windshield, plus boasts a host of new features.
For a start the VideoMic Pro+ now has an Automatic Power Function (subject to plug-in power availability) which is perfect for the run-and-gun shooter, automatically turning the microphone off when unplugged from the camera.
It also incorporates Digital Switching which will ensure the user has ultimate capture of the audio signal at the source, reducing post production and editing times. The Digital Switching includes:
- 3-Stage High Pass Filter to reduce low frequencies such as rumble from traffic or air conditioning
- 3-Stage Gain Control, with +20dB function – designed to improve audio quality on DSLR or mirrorless cameras
- High Frequency Boost will boost high frequencies enhancing detail and clarity in the recording
- Safety Channel to help ensure the signal does not clip when unexpected spikes occur
Rode have also redesigned the battery compartment and it now has a built-in battery door which makes replacing the battery a breeze and far less cumbersome than previous VideoMic models. The VideoMic Pro+ can be powered by the all-new, and included, RØDE LB-1 Lithium-Ion Rechargeable Battery or via 2 x AA Batteries or continuously via Micro USB.
The VideoMic Pro+ is a new benchmark in on-camera microphones and offers customers the opportunity to capture stunning sound to complement their recordings.
The VideoMic Pro+ ships with a 3.5mm TRS Cable, LB-1 Lithioum-Ion Rechargeable Battery and includes RØDE's 10-year warranty
