RODE VideoMicro Test

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 24, 2017 by getbent57

Have made a few post all ready about the RODE VideoMicro.  Well got around to testing it out.  I don’t own an HD camera with a mic port (yet?).  So I hooked it up to my Canon FS 10.  Have owned this video camera since 2008.  Never used a microphone on it.  All so haven’t used the camera in years.  So had to look up how to set it up.

The first thing I did was film some gameplay while the camera was pointed at the TV.  Then plugged in the microphone.  The RODE VideoMicro doesn’t need a battery.  You just have to plug it into the 3.5 mm jack.  Played around with some setting to see if the camera would recognize.  Wasn’t sure if it worked.  So played the same game as before.  Put the files on the computer to if it worked.  Well didn’t have any luck.  The video with the mic plugged in didn’t have any sound at all.  So looked back at the manual for the camera.  From what I read.  I think it will only work with microphone that has it’s own power.  Will try one more time to be sure.

Few post back talked about the RODE VideoMicro and that I ordered one.  Well it showed up at my door yesterday.  It is smaller than I thought it would be.  This is fine because it will make it easier to use.  You can see some pictures below.  Plan to run some tests.  With out and with it on my camera.  Just to see (well hear) the differences.
