The Rode Stereo Video Mic X is the ultimate solution for broadcast quality on-camera sound recording. Its versatile cardioid polar pattern is ideal for video blogs, weddings, nature, travel, music and more.
Independent Rycote Lyre Shock Mounts
The incredible recording capabilities of the VideoMic X are due to the use of two acoustically matched true condenser capsules which have been combined with independent, multi-axis Rycote Lyre shock mounts for each capsule, resulting in ultra-clear, natural audio pickup.
Suitable for Boom, Grip or On-Camera Mounting
Its multi axis shock-absorbing design minimises handling noise and vibration from all angles, allowing you to confidently use the VideoMic on a boom pole, pistol grip or mounted on the hot-shoe of your camera.
High Quality Aluminium Construction
A lightweight cast aluminium body is combined with machined billet aluminium components to ensure a superior build quality. Its intentional use of high quality components results in a precision fit that eliminates virtually all acoustic vibration.
Exceptional RF Protection
Additionally its extensive use of aluminium throughout its construction delivers exceptional RF protection, eliminating noise and interference caused by everyday devices such as WiFi routers, UHF signals from wireless triggers and more.
The rear of the mic features electronic switches with excellent tactile feel to ensure settings on the microphone are not changed accidently or the mic is not inadvertently powered on or off whilst shooting.
Customisable Audio Control
The available adjustment options on the rear of the mic include a -10dB to +20dB pad to reduce potential distortion in extremely loud or soft scenarios. Additionally a 75Hz or 150Hz filter can be utilised to minimise low-frequencies such as wind or emphasise speech in low-frequency shooting situations. Lastly a +6dB Shelf can be used to eliminate the negative effects of using a windsock or wind shield.
Two Windshields Included
Two wind protection options are included with the VideoMic X. A blimp style windshield is ideal for indoor use. Made from low-density foam, the shield eliminates noise generated from movement such as fast tilting or panning. When shooting outdoors, the furry windshield is recommended. the high density fur markedly reduces wind noise while a silicone membrane at the back of the furry provides protection from the rear.
3.5mm and Mini-XLR Output
Connectivity to you camera can be accomplished via a included SC2 3.5mm microphone patch cable. For professional cameras two mini-XLR terminals can be used to output a balanced, noise-free signal into your cameras XLR input. Additionally, the 3.5mm and XLR terminals can be used at the same time to cater for the use of multiple simultaneous recording devices.
9V or Phantom Powered
Powered by a standard 9V battery or Phantom Power from an XLR input the Rode Stereo Video Microphone X is an exceptional microphone targeted at professional film and documentary makers and optimised specifically for on-camera use.
