- Barrel Canceling Pick Up: The Rode Video Mic functions as a true line plus gradient microphone with a super-cardioid pattern in the front and a barrel that cancels side-audio. The result is maximum pick up of the source in highly ambient and noisy environments
- Selectable 10 or 20dB Pad: When capturing audio in loud environments, the VideoMic offers built-in attenuation. The selectable 10 or 20dB pad lessens the microphone’s sensitivity, allowing it to handle higher SPL levels without sacrificing clarity
- High Pass Filter Switch: A high-pass filter switch eliminates room ambiance and noise below 80Hz. This results in improved intelligibility while recording around machinery, wind or close proximities
- Internal Power: The condenser element is powered with a standard 9-volt battery for up to 100 hours
