17Dec My Myk compact condenser microphone

Rode’s Videomic has been one of the leading affordable camera mounted microphone options for quite some time. Even so, there is still a lot of room for improvement. Many people don’t like the large size of the Videomic or the shock mount system and I personally find it hard to close 9 volt battery door on the VideoMic […]

25Nov Used Gear Watch: Rode VideoMic

I’ve used the Rode VideoMic through 3 different cameras and it’s served me well, but I’ve been meaning to upgrade my copy of Plural Eyes and the Rode VideoMic pro combo deal is just to good to pass up, so now it’s time to let it go. As usual I’ll give you guys first pick […]

12Mar Connecting your Rode VideoMic to an XLR input

After posting that Micover v.s. Deadcat windscreen tests, I received a number of e-mails asking to explain how I connected the two microphones up at the same time. So I thought I’d cover the 3.5mm Female to XLR Male adapter that makes it possible. Yes that is the Beachtek DXA-SLR it’s plugged into. I’m still working on […]

08Mar Micover Windscreen for the Rode VideoMic Pro

As soon as I heard the results of the Rode Deadcat windscreen test, I returned it and ordered the Micover windscreen designed for the VideoMic pro. As you can see the windscreen is made of the exact same material as the one used on the Rode VideoMic in the video. It looks a lot nicer, […]

17Feb Rode VideoMic Pro Video Review

Although the audio tests don’t show any real difference in audio quality, the higher price of the VideoMic pro gives you a much smaller and lighter package. The new design has a better suspension system and the +20db switch gives you a much stronger audio single for cameras with poor or noise amplifiers. If you […]

14Feb Rode VideoMic Pro – First impression

The Rode VideoMic has been a very popular compact camera mounted shotgun mic for quit a while, mine has lasted me more then 6 years with nothing more then a rubber band change out. When the Rode VideoMic Pro was released back in late 2010 I spent some time going over the specs and it looks like […]

23Aug Zoom H1 shock mount in the wild on a boom.

Ryan posted this video comparing the Zoom H1 against the Rode VideoMic. It’s always interesting to see how the H1’s built in mics compare to dedicated microphones. But what really puts a smile on my face is that he’s using the NOOB Shock mount throughout the test. It always makes me happy to see my […]
