About the Rode VideoMic-R Microphone

The RODE VideoMic is a professional grade shotgun microphone. Based on the latest Film industry technology, the VideoMic is designed specifically for use with high quality Digital Video Cameras.

Operation power: The VideoMic is designed to operate from a 9 V battery (ANSI:1604A or IEC:6LR61). The battery is conveniently located within the support arm of the microphone.
