The Rode VideoMic is a professional grade condenser shotgun mic based on the latest film industry technology with low noise, unusually high bandwidth and ultralight fabrication. It is powered with (1) 9 Volt battery and includes both a high pass filter and low battery warning. The VideoMic is built with a shockmount which is a must have for quiet recording and isolation. The VideoMic’s slant back design keeps the mics profile to the rear and as low as possible. Connection is made with a standard mini stereo jack. Mono audio is recorded to both the left and right channels. A foam windscreen is included.
