Rode has announced the VideoMic Pro, a follow-up to its popular VideoMic that became an almost instant standard for HDSLR video use. The new VideoMic Pro was designed to address lower noise, lighter weight and a better shock mounting system.
The 9V battery source delivers up to 70 hours of power. A 3.5mm mini-jack allows you to plug the VideoMic Pro directly into your HDSLR or camcorder. Also, when you register your VideoMic Pro online, you get a free DeadCat VMP furry windshield.
The Rode VideoMic Pro is available for around $230. Check availability at B&H Photo.
