    FAQs
    • Will my RØDE VideoMic fit into the hot shoe mount of my camera?+
      • The RØDE cold shoe adaptor is a standard size adaptor, also known as a universal shoe mount. This standard shoe is suitable for the majority of camera attachments.

         

        If your camera has a different, or custom adaptor, please contact your camera manufacturer for information on converters to fit the universal shoe connection.

    • Why do I get a low level noise sound when recording on my camera?+
      • This is usually caused by the function of "Automatic Gain Control" or "AGC" on the camera.

         

        Basically, when the camera cannot sense an audio input signal it automatically increases the gain of the input. It is increased so much that the noise floor in the camera microphone amplifier becomes audible .

         

        The AGC can be disabled on some cameras and it is worth checking with you camera manufacturer for information on this, which can sometimes require a firmware update to the camera.

         

        RØDE have created the VideoMic Pro to help combat this issue, the VideoMic Pro contains a 20dB pre amplifier, boosting the mic signal so that the camera will see a good signal level and not engage its AGC.

        We recommend setting your audio levels manually to achieve an optimum signal to noise ratio and disabling the AGC of the camera.

    • Will the VideoMic range microphones connect to a tripod?+
      • Yes, all of our microphones in the VideoMic range have a standard 3/8 thread built into the bottom of the cold shoe mount for connection to a boompole, mic stand or tripod.
