Meet the VideoMic GO, our new lightweight on-camera microphone for clear, directional audio on the GO!

Do you want to record your songs for Youtube but don't have any audio equipment? We recorded Matt Purcell with the VideoMic GO on a Canon 600D to show that you don't need the latest & greatest equipment to get great audio for your music videos.

Compact and light weight by design, the VideoMic GO delivers clear, crisp, directional audio with incredible ease of use. Its tight pickup area focuses directly in front of the microphone and reduces other surrounding sounds, ensuring that your subject is isolated from distracting background noise.

The integrated Rycote® Lyre® shock mount isolates your microphone from bumps and vibrations that could otherwise interfere with your sound.

Constructed from a single piece of hard-wearing thermoplastic, the Lyre® provides superior acoustic suspension to traditional elastic solutions, and will never wear out, sag or snap.

The VideoMic GO has no complicated switches or settings and is powered by your camera's external microphone input, requiring no batteries to operate, ensuring you never miss a great shot.
