White Plains, NY—The Saramonic Vmic5 Pro is an advanced supercardioid on-camera condenser shotgun microphone. The company says it delivers “premium, full-frequency, broadcast-quality sound for a remarkable price.” In addition, Saramonic debuted the Vmic 5 on-camera shotgun mic.
Saramonic Vmic5 Pro
The full-featured Vmic5 Pro offers flexible sonic controls, yet it is still lightweight and compact. Moreover, the on-camera shotgun mic is a solution for advanced content creators, filmmakers, journalists as well as vloggers.
It boasts a supercardioid polar pattern that provides focused directionality. It also provides off-axis rejection of audio from the sides and rear with a full-sized inference tube. As a result, the Vmic5 Pro can reproduce the wider frequency response of a professional XLR shotgun. However, it has a 3.5mm output and a much smaller, lightweight form factor.
The supercardioid mic has a 120-hour Li-ion battery; ultralight ABS construction; and a shock mount with a camera shoe and 1/4″-20 mounting. Furthermore, its 5×0.9-inch interference tube with a 14mm capsule delivers full-frequency, broadcast-quality sound with focused directionality.
In addition, flexible sonic controls include a three-stage gain control; +20dB/0dB/-10dB selectable high-pass filters; as well as a 75Hz/150Hz and +5dB high-frequency boost.
Other features comprise automatic power on/off; a 3.5mm headphone output for real–time monitoring; and a side-mounted 3.5mm output with a removable coiled 3.5mm TRS output cable.
The mic comes bundled with a foam windscreen with rubber gasket seal for filming indoors as well as a furry windshield for filming outdoors and in higher wind. Also in the box are a USB-A to USB-C charging cable, a manual and a warranty card. Saramonic’s Vmic5 Pro has a suggested retail price of $249.
