The Rode VideoMic & Micro Boompole Kit with Windbuster includes everything you'll need to capture audio from overhead.
The VideoMic is a shotgun microphone with an integrated Rycote Lyre Suspension System that can easily be mounted on a boompole or DSLR camera. Its super-cardioid polar pattern attenuates sounds from the sides. The result is a signal that sounds closer to the camera, even when shooting in noisy environments or at moderate distances.
The included Rycote Lyre is a non-elasticated suspension structure composed of a hard-wearing thermoplastic. It is more effective at acoustically decoupling microphones from unwanted vibrations, handling and cable-borne noise than elasticated suspensions. The lyre remains effective at a wide range of temperatures and is virtually indestructible. It will never wear out, sag, snap or require any rethreading to maintain its effectiveness.
The Micro Boompole is a convenient and portable, 3-piece boom pole. Lightweight and precision balanced, the anodized aluminum pole features intuitive twist locks for smooth extension. With the included 10' Rode VideoMic Cable connected to the VideoMic's 1/8" male output and coiled down the boompole, you'll be able to easily connect to your favorite field recorder.
The Auray Fuzzy Windbuster is made of an artificial rabbit fur material for maximum protection against wind noise. The Fuzzy Windbuster slips over windscreens for added protection.
