The RODE VideoMic GO is a lightweight, compact, directional microphone designed for DSLR, that costs about half the price of the popular VideoMic Pro. It comes with an elastic and flexible special shock-resistant attachment. Rycote Lyre eliminates the risk of cracking sounds and vibration effects. In addition to the basic mounting option, it also has a 3/8" thread.
The very narrow-angle of scanning (with a super-cardioid directional pattern) is routed directly to the microphone,
which limits the intrusion of unwanted ambient noise to the recording, providing you with a selectively clean sound of the recorded object (for example, one specific instrument in an orchestra).
The studio microphone parameters provide a very clean and crisp sound. The cylindrical microphone is manufactured from a single piece of thermoplastic material and is designed for camera attachment without the need for any setup or batteries. It's powered directly from a 3.5mm jack on any compatible camera.
Sound pressure level SPL:
Equivalent Noise: 34db
Signal Noise: 60db
Maximum: 120dB (1 kHz, 1% THD into 1k load)
-35dB, max SPL: 120dB
You need to check your camera's manual to ensure compatibility with a 2.5V plug-in power supply via the USB microphone (which some cameras, such as the Nikon D7000 series, may not have). To use the viewfinder, you must set the mounting correctly.
