Review: R0DE Videomic

The Videomic line of microphones have always been geared towards videographers and journalists looking to stay mobile and improve their sound quality. R0DE has partnered with Rycote combining their Lyre suspension system with R0DE's VideoMic. In addition to providing a solid mount with resistance to shock and movement noise. They also benefit from Lyre's lower profile build as well. The Videomic uses a super-cardioid polar pattern reducing sounds from the sides. This results in a signal that sounds closer to the camera, even when shooting in noisy environments or at moderate distances.
