We just ordered a great microphone, the Røde VideoMicro, to be able to make some quality sound to our future vlogs. Now I want to share my experience with you, and try to help you decide if the Røde VideoMicro this is the right microphone for you.
We ordered it online from cameratols.nl Friday evening, right before bedtime, and when Kenneth woke up the next morning he had an email saying that the Røde VideoMicro was on its way and should be delivered between 9 and 11 the same morning. He rolled out of bed, made coffee, took a sip and DING DONG, there it was.
The Røde VideoMicro is perfect for making vlogs, and it is a good match to the Nikon D5600 size wise, as the camera is not so big itself.
Interessant Features of the Røde VideoMicro:
- No battery required and no on/off button!
- Can be used with DSLR cameras and smartphones (SC7 adapter cable).
- Only 8 cm long.
- Weighs 42 grams.
- Aluminum body with black ceramic coating that is non reflective and.
- Includes Rycote Lyre shock mount and windshield (WS9).
- 2 years warranty.
- Looks good!
- Only €51,- with free delivery!
VideoMicro is compact and also a very powerful microphone that meets the requirements of both amateurs and professionals, it has a large frequency range of 40 Hz – 20 000 Hz.
Another good accessory I can recommend for making vlogs is the Røde Tripod mini stand, that cost around €27,-
Our first vlog has now been created! It is about this product, so feel free to visit our YouTube channel and hear the amazing difference of the sound before and after I attached the Røde VideoMicro to the camera. See the review now
