A quick jaunt into the back country allows us to hear the superb sound of the RODE Videomic Pro. We were shocked to hear the level of detail at 4,6, even 8 feet away. Listen to the crunching of the snow and the clothing rustle. Very clean. Of course getting the mic close to the subject is going to give you even better sound - we chose this example to demonstrate what kind of sound you would get in an ENG or documentary type scenario.
We're shooting with the Canon 5D Mark II. The 24-70mm 2.8 lens is being utilized with a Genus ND fader. The audio is manually set three ticks from the bottom and the VideoMic Pro is set at the +20dB setting.
The RODE VideoMic Pro is now officially shipping dvestore.com/products/RODE-Videomic-Pro.html
