The Directional Condenser Video Microphone is a professional grade shotgun microphone. Based on the latest "Film industry" technology, the Rode Video Mic. is designed specifically for use with high quality Digital Video Cameras.

The microphone exhibits low noise and an unusually wide bandwidth for its size. It is ultra lightweight, yet rugged due to it’s ABS construction. The Video Mic. is powered by a standard 9 V battery and offers a Low Battery LED status indicator and a switchable high pass filter to reduce unwanted low frequency rumble.

The Video Mic. attaches to any Camcorder that has the standard hot-shoe fitting and utilizes a stereo mini jack for audio output.

The Video Mic. is designed to operate from a 9 V battery (NOT supplied). The battery is conveniently located within the support arm of the microphone. A fully removable access cover and a 1-way insertion mechanism ensure ease of loading. The battery will provide more than 100 hrs. of continuous use due to alow consumption of only 5.0 mA. The microphone will operate satisfactorily into a load impedance as low as 1 k ohm. If a load below this is used, the output signal level will be reduced.
