Building on the success of the VideoMic Pro, the defacto standard for DSLR on-camera audio
, and RODE's original Stereo
VideoMic, the new Stereo VideoMic
Pro provides a high quality stereo
option for videographers, and is ideal for recording music, and the atmospheric ambience essential in building a realistic audio
Based around a matched pair of high sensitivity
1/2" cardioid condenser
capsules in a coincident XY
pair, the Stereo VideoMic
Pro provides a wide stereo
image with natural depth.
The Stereo VideoMic
Pro builds on the feature set of the VideoMic Pro, with an ergonomic form factor perfectly suited to DSLR, consumer camcorders and large-sensor video
cameras. The integrated shock mounting system provides superior isolation from vibration and mechanical noise
that can otherwise degrade the recording quality. Additionally the lightweight yet robust multi-strand cable provides excellent acoustic decoupling from the camera and offers significantly lower noise
transference than traditional audio
The user friendly designed rear of the microphone
body features the power
and equalisation controls, including a high pass filter
at 75Hz which is designed to cut out the noise
generated by air conditioning, traffic and other undesirable low frequency
A -10dB PAD
allows the user to reduce the sensitivity
of the microphone
, making it suitable for recording loud sound
sources such as live music or at sporting events.
Like the VideoMic Pro, the Stereo VideoMic
Pro features a +20dB level
boost specifically designed to provide a higher quality signal with DSLR cameras. When activated, the typically low quality camera preamp level
can be reduced, resulting in a lower noise
floor and much clearer recording.
The RODE Stereo VideoMic
Pro is designed and made in Australia, and covered by RODE Microphones' industry leading 10 year warranty.
