About Rode Microphones Stereo Vid

Now videographers can use true 'studio' stereo recording techniques in the field with ease. The X/Y configuration enables the Stereo Video Mic to capture the true ambience of the recording space, while still offering a high level of rear rejection and low noise.

Fitted with a shoe mount, the StereoVideoMic has the same low noise circuit design as the best selling VideoMic. The StereoVideoMic offers 9V battery operation, an LED battery status indicator, high pass filter switch, and a -10dB pad switch which allows for the mic to be used on most cameras with perfect level control.

You can also use the StereoVideoMic as a remote mic on a stand, or a RØDE boom pole (optional), which truly makes this versatile product well suited for all video applications including Electronic News Gathering (ENG), Weddings, Sports Events & Interviews.

Best choice for the $


from Rockford, IL  -  Professional Musician

Excellent stereo seperation, clarity and noise cancelation. Allows multiple choices for volume level and bass rolloff. Very good use of the one 9v batery power it requires (100+ hours of use.) So why not 5 stars? 1) Things can always be better. 2) The camera mount is slightly oversized and is next to impossible to fit on my D7000 without bending the metal brackets. However, they cleverly made the mount with a tripod mount as well, so I choose that option. This is a tough mic and a great deal. You can hear a sample here :

Rode Stereo VideoMic


from Mansfield, OH

The mic quite working after only two months. Rode was very good about replacing it. They had no units in the states so they shipped one directly from Australia. I was pleased with their service. I like the quality of sound it records. The replacement has worked consistently for five months.

much improved sound


from Portland, OR  -  Tech Savvy

So far I've only done very limited testing with this on my 5D Mark 2. It does improve the sound over the internal microphone by a huge degree. Shouldn't be too long before I test it out in a small venue concert setting. One minor downer I noticed is that the "dead kitten" wind screen seems to come off the mic rather easily. I don't see any mechanism to help secure it. Maybe I will try a rubber band around it or something similar.
