Introducing the Rode VideoMic Me
Rode’s newest addition to the VideoMic family – the VideoMic Me – is a directional microphone optimized for smartphones. The VideoMic Me is designed to fit a wide range of different devices including both iOS (iPad included) and Android devices (as long as the headset input on the device is on the opposite side to the actual camera so that you do not see the microphone while filming).
Rode VideoMic Me
Directional Microphone for Smartphones
The VideoMic Me is a compact and lightweight, high-quality directional microphone that connects directly to an iPhone/smartphone’s TRRS microphone/headphone socket. Its flexible mounting bracket accommodates a wide range of smartphones and allows the microphone to be fitted for primary camera or front camera (‘selfie’) use. A 3.5mm headphone jack on the rear allows for play-through of audio while recording (app dependent) as well as easy playback of your videos without having to remove the microphone. The VideoMic Me includes a deluxe furry windshield for shooting outdoors or in adverse weather.
