Building on the success of the VideoMic Pro, which launched in early 2011 and quickly became the defacto standard for DSLR on-camera audio, and RØDE’s original Stereo VideoMic, the new Stereo VideoMic Pro provides a high quality stereo option for videographers, and is ideal for recording music, and the atmospheric ambience essential in building a realistic audio scene.
Based around a matched pair of high sensitivity 1⁄2” cardioid condenser capsules in a coincident XY pair, the Stereo VideoMic Pro provides a wide stereo image with natural depth.
The Stereo VideoMic Pro builds on the feature set of the VideoMic Pro, with an ergonomic form factor perfectly suited to DSLR, consumer camcorders and large-sensor video cameras. The integrated shock mounting system provides superior isolation from vibration and mechanical noise that can otherwise degrade the recording quality. Additionally the lightweight yet robust multi-strand cable provides excellent acoustic decoupling from the camera and offers significantly lower noise transference than traditional audio cable.
Philip Bloom says:
“RØDE have once again given us an excellent new DSLR mic this time in the cuter than a button Rode Stereo Mic Pro. Super sound, crazily compact design. This is a massive improvement on the original Stereo VideoMic. Another winner from the boys in Australia!”
The following article and video were made by Preston Kanak, regarding the Shape Composite Stabiliser:
‘Shape Wlb Camera Supports, a company out of Quebec, Canada sent me the Composite Stabilizer Rig, after having used it on the Kessler shoot in Plymouth, Indiana. I absolutely fell in love with the rig because of build quality and versatility.
Today, the rig arrived and I decided to do a fun little video. I have seen a lot of similar videos and wanted to do something a little different for this piece.’
