The VideoMic with Rycote Lyre Suspension System from Rode is a shotgun microphone that may easily be mounted on a DSLR camera. It features a Rycote suspension system that attaches to the camera’s shoe. The VideoMic is lightweight, and when mounting on a camera it does not appear in the frame. The VideoMic can also mount to Rode’s boompoles for elevated audio capture. Its super-cardioid polar pattern attenuates sounds from the sides. The result is a signal that sounds closer to the camera, even when shooting in noisy environments or at moderate distances. The included Rycote Lyre is a non-elasticated suspension structure composed of a hard-wearing thermoplastic. It’s more effective at acoustically decoupling microphones from unwanted vibrations, handling and cable-borne noise than elasticated suspensions. The lyre remains effective at a variety of temperatures and is virtually indestructible. It’ll never wear out, sag, snap or require any rethreading to handle its effectiveness. An attached, coiled cable terminates to a 1/8″ (3.5mm) mini output connection. The VideoMic features a condenser element that utilizes a normal 9 Volt battery (sold one after the other). The microphone will run for approximately 100 hours on a single battery.
