RODE Videomic, video review

Creating videos for this blog is tons of fun. However, it does require some specialized equipment. It doesn’t have to be super expensive, just designed for the job at hand. The RODE Videomic is the perfect example. It is a directional microphone, which means that it records sound from a specific area. Here’s my video review of the RODE Videomic, which contains an on-location shot from Aruba, providing a good demonstration of the piece in action.

Given the wind and water noise at the shoreline, I was impressed with the RODE Videomic’s capability. My voice was clearly heard and the people behind the camera could not be heard at all, which is what this microphone is designed to do, record the sound from straight ahead. For the price point, RODE has done a great job. Thanks!
