The RØDELink Newsshooter Kit provides everything you need to start shooting video wirelessly with XLR microphones, including a camera-mounted receiver and an XLR transmitter. The receiver (RX-CAM) features an OLED display with information on level, battery status (receiver and transmitter), mute and channel selection.

RØDELink Newsshooter Kit Reviews
RØDELink Newsshooter Kit Reviews

The new Rode Newsshooter is a fantastic system. It is literally an all in one wireless device that let's me connect a huge variety of mics. I have successfully used it with lavalier mics, handheld vocal mics, studio mics, and shotgun mics. Voice over sessions was clearly captured and sound effects sounded exciting. During a recent session I was able to place my NTG3 shotgun mic as far as 50 meters away, which is beyond the length of a long 100 foot XLR cable. Moreover, for inside and outside, I did not run into transmission problems during the entire time I used this wireless kit. It's not everyday I get very excited over a product but the Newsshooter is easy to operate and such a joy to use.

This is an excellent product from #RØDE. Arguably, better than their wireless lavalier system!

FAQs
  • Is the USB port an audio input or output?+
    • No, the USB input is designed for power and future firmware updates. It is compatible with any standard 5-volt USB power supply.

  • The metering on my RX-CAM is really low?+
    • The RX-CAM uses dBFS (Full Scale) metering which, generally allows for a lot of head room and most healthy mic level signals will appear at one or two bars.

  • Can I have 2 microphones plugged in?+
    • The TX-XLR can switch between its XLR and TRS inputs. It cannot use both at the same time.

  • Does the TX-XLR supply plug power?+
    • Yes, plug in power is provided only through the TRS input.

  • Does it supply full 48v Phantom Power?+
    • Yes, the TX-XLR provides full 48-volt specification phantom power. Depending on the batteries you’ve chosen, activating phantom power will reduce the time of usable hours.

  • What batteries do you recommend for best performance?+
    • Lithium AA’s or NP-F batteries are the best options for use with your TX-XLR.

      Lithium batteries have been tested to provide 5-9 hours with phantom power activated depending on the batteries quality. While Alkaline batteries are compatible with the TX-XLR, when phantom power is activated testing has shown a battery life of only approximately 2.5 hours.

      NP-F style batteries have been tested to provide 11-16 hours of operation depending on phantom power status and headphone usage.
