The Rode Video Mic Pro+ captures high quality audio and is designed to be easily mounted on-camera so you can record audio direct to a DSLR, camcorder or portable audio recorder. With the Pro+ Rode have introduced some fantastic new features to the popular mic series like automatic power control, a built-in battery door, and a safety audio channel designed to reduce the chance of your audio clipping from unexpected loud noises.
Designed for On-camera Use
The improved Rode shotgun mic is designed to be mounted on a wide variety of cameras that are equipped with a hot shoe mount with a simple shoe plate and screw that ensures secure attachment, as well as a 3/8 thread for connection to a boom pole, mic stand or tripod.
Rycote Lyre Suspension
Featuring a best-in-class Rycote Lyre shockmount keeps the microphone suspended to remove bump and vibration sounds that can be picked up at high gain settings, this guarantees the capture of clear high quality primary or reference audio.
The new Automatic Power Function turns the microphone on and off with your camera to conserve battery power and can even turn the microphone off when the 3.5mm jack is disconnected. This provides you with hassle-free fast setups so you can be confident that your mic is turned on when you need it.
Included Rechargeable Battery
The mic can be powered by a range of options either using the included LB-1 Lithium-Ion Battery or 2x AA batteries. The mic even has a micro USB port to recharge the battery or power the mic for longer shoots. With a built-in battery door, you can be confident swapping batteries on-the-go.
Digital Switching with Frequency and Gain Control
A new digital switching system provides better control over the sound of your audio. The mic has two stage high pass filters of 75Hz and 150z that allow you to tweak the low end, as well as a high-end boost. In addition, the mic has a three stage gain control with a +20dB that allows you to turn down noisy pre-amps traditionally found in cameras as well as a 0dB and -10dB pad for recording in louder environments.
Audio Safety Mode
An innovative new recording mode can make use of the left and right audio channels by attenuating the right channel by -10dB to protect against unexpected loud spikes. This gives you significantly greater audio flexibility in the editing stage of your project.
3.5mm Audio Port
The socket at the back of the microphone allows you to attach the included 3.5mm TRS cable so you can connect the microphone to an external audio recorder or camera audio port. As it is a socket it also allows you to use a different cable to connect to a mobile device or a longer length cable.
Sealed Windshield Shape
The sealed windshield design of the Rode VMP+ means it is protected in light wind and can capture clear audio, it is also compatible with a fur shield for operation in outdoor environments making the microphone one of the most versatile easy-to-use audio options in the market.
