The VideoMic GO Microphone from Rode is a lightweight microphone which adds high-quality audio recording to your small camcorder and DSLR camera. At only 73 g, the microphone keeps your camera setup lightweight, making it ideal for handheld shooting. It features an integrated Rycote Lyre shock mount for isolation from bumps and vibration, and offers battery-free operation, using instead the plug-in power from your camera's 3.5mm microphone input.
Ready to go whenever you are, the Røde VideoMic Go is compact and lightweight (just 73g), and doesn’t even need a battery to operate. Thanks to its super cardioid polar pattern, it does a better job of screening out peripheral noise than the VideoMicro, although its frequency range can’t compare with the VideoPro.
To help eliminate unwanted background sounds as much as possible, Røde has come up with its own integrated Rycote Lyre suspension system. This keeps the microphone in its own chassis, suspended above your camera mount. The result is to shield it from any sounds or vibrations you might cause while using the camera. Oh, and there’s a furry deadcat windshield for those occasions when you’re filming outdoors.
This one makes the perfect YouTube mic. Because it draws its power from your device, you just need to make sure your camera is compatible (the VideoMic Go won’t work with the Nikon D7000, for example). You also need to make sure your camera has enough juice to power both itself and the mic for as long as you intend to film.
The VideoMic GO is a directional microphone. It utilizes a supercardioid polar pattern to attenuate sounds from the sides, resulting in a signal that sounds closer to the camera, even when shooting in noisy environments or at moderate distances. The integrated shoe mount provides a 3/8" thread for additional mounting options.
The VideoMic Go does not require batteries for operation, but instead uses the plug-in power supplied via your camera's 3.5mm microphone input. Simply plug in, and you're ready to record.
