The Scorpion Jr. and the RODE VideoMicro are two of the most essential components for any videographer. The RODE VideoMicro is designed to improve the audio quality of your videos, while The Scorpion Jr. provides a stable and solid platform to comfortably hold and maneuver the camera. The RODE VideoMicro is a high-quality cardioid condenser microphone for great quality audio recordings when used with a wide range of cameras. A directional microphone, the VideoMicro reduces distracting peripheral sounds and focuses on the audio in front of the camera. Its pickup is more forgiving than RODE’s other on-camera microphones providing a more natural sound when recording indoors. Powered by your camera's microphone input, the VideoMic GO is completely plug-and-play - no batteries required.
