RODE Microphones introduces the VideoMic HD, touted to be a high-fidelity, precision RF bias shotgun microphone with integrated digital recording, designed for use with DSLR and large-sensor video cameras.
The company said the VideoMic HD’s audio DNA is directly inherited from RODE’s flagship NTG3 professional shotgun microphone. Incorporating the same capsule and sharing much of the electronic design of the NTG3, the VideoMic HD is a true condenser super-cardioid shotgun microphone with RF bias technology. This makes it virtually immune to RF interference and condensation that can cause other condenser microphones to fail, RODE Microphones added.
The microphone body is constructed from rugged, lightweight die-cast aluminum and features a quick release cam lever for simple and secure mounting in any universally sized camera shoe mount.
