The Rode Stereo VideoMic Pro Rycote with Deadkitten Fur Windshield Kit from B&H features an upgraded version of the popular Stereo VideoMic Pro microphone but now includes a Rycote Lyre shockmount, higher-sensitivity X/Y capsules, a denser foam windscreen, better RF shielding, a thick Kevlar braided cable, and a Rode Deadkitten artificial fur windshield. It can be used for DSLR and camcorders and is suitable for recording music and atmospheric ambience, which is essential in building a realistic audio scene.
The microphone retains all of the switch locations and other features as the previous model and features a high-pass filter switch at 75 Hz for minimizing low-frequency noise, and a -10 dB pad for maximizing headroom on behalf of capturing loud signals without distortion. It allows you to capture broadcast recording quality with the on-camera microphone. In addition, the kits Rode Deadkitten artificial fur windshield is designed to minimizes wind noise, while also remaining acoustically transparent.
The Stereo VideoMic Pro Rycote from Rode builds on the success of the Stereo VideoMic Pro with a few improved upgrades such as a Rycote Lyre shockmount, higher-sensitivity X/Y capsules, denser foam windscreen, better RF shielding, and a thicker Kevlar braided cable. The microphone retains all of the switch locations and other features as the previous model, for use as an on-camera DSLR and camcorder microphone for video applications.
The integrated Rycote Lyre shockmount system protects against handling noise. The Stereo VideoMic features a high-pass filter switch at 75 Hz for minimizing low-frequency noise, and a -10 dB pad for maximizing headroom on behalf of capturing loud signals without distortion. The +20 dB level-boost switch is specifically designed to provide a higher-quality signal with DSLR cameras. When activated, the camera preamp level is reduced, resulting in a lower noise floor and a much clearer recording.
