RODE VideoMicro II Overview

Lightweight, On-Camera Microphone for Creators

Ideal for run-and-gun video creators and live streamers, the Rode VideoMicro II is an ultracompact and lightweight camera-mount shotgun microphone for recording high-quality audio with a DSLR/mirrorless camera or iOS/Android mobile device. This true shotgun microphone improves on its predecessor by adding a supercardioid pickup pattern and annular line tube technology (first introduced with the NTG5 professional shotgun microphone) to deliver highly transparent and directional sound for your videos on TikTok and YouTube, or for live streaming and online meetings.

With plug & go operation, no complicated controls, and no battery required, the VideoMicro II is easy-to-use right out of the box. The innovative HELIX isolation mount system and included foam and furry windshields ensure all your recordings are crystal-clear, free from knocks, bumps, and wind noises—whether shooting at home or outdoors on the go.
