Saramonic VMIC5 Camera-Mount Shotgun Microphone

The Saramonic VMIC5 Camera-Mount Shotgun Microphone is designed for vloggers, filmmakers, journalists, and other content creators who want a mic with the power, features, and premium sound of a pro-level shotgun at an affordable price.

Premium Full-Frequency Sound and Control

The Vmic5 has a full-sized 5 x 0.9-inch interference tube, capable of producing wider frequency response, detailed sound, and off-axis rejection of a pro XLR shotgun in a small and light mini-shotgun package. Its super-cardioid polar pattern provides superior off-axis rejection of audio from the sides and rear. For simple and flexible sonic control, it has a 2-stage (0dB/+10dB) gain control and a 150Hz high-pass filter to eliminate low-frequency noise. All of this makes the Vmic5 the ideal partner for your DSLR, Mirrorless, or Video Camera when you need a mic that sounds and performs like a real shotgun which can easily fit in your camera bag.

Headphone Monitoring, Intelligent Connectivity and Power for Days

The Vmic5 has a 3.5mm headphone output for monitoring your sound, which is essential if your camera doesn't have one. It has a 3.5mm microphone output on the side and a short, coiled cable for connecting to cameras, mixers, and recorders. Because the cable is detachable, users can replace it with any 3.5mm TRS output cable or adapter. The Vmic5 also has an inbuilt 2000mAh lithium-ion battery that can last up to 150 hours and can be charged through a USB-C (DC 5V/1A) charging socket.

Ready for Action, Anywhere You Need It

The Vmic5 is ready to film anywhere, at any time, whether you're filming indoors or outdoors. A foam windscreen is included, as well as a fuzzy windshield. Allowing you to film wherever the action is without the need for additional wind protection. The Vmic5 is robust enough to survive the demanding world of video production, thanks to its sturdy ABS construction. When in motion, an advanced integrated shock mount isolates it from unwanted vibration noise, and a camera shoe mount with metal 1/4-inch-20 thread is included. It can be attached to cameras, boom poles, stands, camera cages, and tripods with ease.
