Expand your online impact by shooting your vlogs, livestreams, YouTube videos, and social media posts with the Rode Vlogger Kit Universal, a complete package designed specifically for hassle-free, high-quality audio and video recording to any smartphone with a 3.5mm port.
This bundle features the Rode VideoMicro ultracompact camera-mount shotgun microphone, an on-camera light with a diffuser and eight colored filters, a tripod, a phone holder, and the required accessories to make it all work. Equipped with the Vlogger Kit Universal, your smartphone can transform into a portable and convenient production system that provides markedly improved caliber of sound and picture.
Since the VideoMicro runs on plug-in power and has no controls or switches, it serves as a simple and reliable microphone that’s ideal for filmmakers who can’t be slowed down by intricate configuration. Plus, it comes with a detachable shock-absorbing suspension mount, which effectively reduces vibration and handling noise. Shooting outdoors? Slip the supplied furry windshield over the mic to tame wind noise and achieve cleaner audio recordings.
