Features

The VideoMicro is a compact microphone designed to improve the audio quality of your videos.

It incorporates a high-quality cardioid condenser microphone capsule for great quality audio recordings when used with a wide range of cameras. A directional microphone, the VideoMicro reduces distracting peripheral sounds and focusses on the audio in front of the camera. Its pickup is more forgiving than R?DE's other on-camera microphones providing a more natural sound when recording indoors. Perfect for capturing incredible audio to accompany inspiring vision. The microphone body is made from aluminum, giving it a high level of RF rejection, and is finished in R?DE's high-grade ceramic anti-glare black coating. Included with the VideoMicro is a camera shoe mount featuring a Rycote Lyre shock mount. Featuring a suspension structure composed of a hard-wearing thermoplastic, it is far more effective at minimising unwanted vibrations, handling and cable-borne noise than traditional elastic suspensions. Virtually indestructible, the Rycote Lyre will never sag, snap, wear out or require rethreading to maintain its effectiveness. Also included is the WS9 synthetic furry wind shield with foam inner cell, designed for use in outdoor scenarios where wind and environmental noise can inhibit recordings. Optionally available is the R?DE SC7, a TRS to TRRS cable that allows the VideoMicro to be used with smartphones, to capture crystal clear, directional sound for video and video applications such as Periscope.

- Compact size and lightweight - only 80mm (3') long and 42gm (1.5oz)
- All-metal microphone body
- No battery required (powered by camera plug-in power - min 3V)
- Rycote® Lyre® shock mount included
- Deluxe furry windshield included

Great mic for price but does have the same issue others mentioned

14 November 2019
The mic works well and does a great job - especially for its size and price. The only thing I've noticed (which others have mentioned on reviews) is that the stand its attached to is not quite strong enough to hold the weight of the mic. Bit of a silly design flaw. It still works, though, it just droops probably more than it should. You just need to be aware of this when using it.

the shock mount is not strong enough to hold up mic at right ANGLE but overall it is a good mic for the price range

Great mic for the price. Brought it for on camera audio, and it's a big upgrade from the built in camera mic. It's well built and comes with a windshield and shock mount. Works off the cameras power so doesn't require batteries (I'm using a Panasonic G7 and that works well but it pays to check if your camera supports it).
