Description

For mobile video creators in need of a cost-effective and unobtrusive upgrade from their device's built-in mic, the Saramonic Vmic Mini shotgun microphone offers a quality solution that won't impede the flow of work. This lightweight and ultracompact shotgun microphone mounts directly to DSLR, mirrorless, and video cameras, or to smartphones and tablets with an adapter (available separately), and yields considerably improved sound compared to the built-in mics on these devices.

Plug-and-play operation makes it extremely easy to use right out of the box. With no batteries to install or charge, and no buttons or switches to operate, you can immediately start recording your YouTube videos, Facebook Live streams, and interviews, at home or on the go. The Vmic Mini includes two 3.5mm cables—a TRS cable for use with cameras and a TRS to TRRS cable to allow proper hookup to a smartphone or tablet equipped with a headphone jack.

Shotgun Mic for Focused Sound

Though most microphones found in cameras and mobile devices capture sound from all directions, the Vmic Mini features a cardioid pickup pattern that focuses the audio capture in front of the camera while rejecting distracting sounds in the background. The mic has been tuned with a slight bump at 8 kHz, which adds presence and clarity to speech.

Ultracompact Size Fits Anywhere

With a light, precision-cut aluminum-alloy body and no bulky battery to worry about, the Vmic Mini fits comfortably on your camera without weighing it down. Unlike larger shotgun mics, its compact size is ideal for use with small-format cameras as well as smaller mobile devices, staying out of the way so you can get right in the middle of the action.

Built-In Shockmount Reduces Vibrations and Rumble

A smart feature of the Vmic Mini's design is the robust, integrated shockmount. It helps to isolate the mic from handling noise and vibrations when you're on the move, greatly reducing muddying low-end rumble.

Bullet-Shaped Windscreen Blocks Wind Noise

The included bullet-shaped windscreen gives the Vmic Mini a slick and functional look, while blocking wind noise and protecting it from the elements.

Versatile Mounting Options

The Vmic Mini's integrated, locking shoe mount features a 1/4"-20 thread at the bottom and is ready to attach to your camera, gimbal, tripod, boompole, or stand. With its miniature size, the mic is extremely well-suited for phone mounting using a phone tripod adapter clamp equipped with a cold shoe (available separately).

Runs on Plug-In Power

Since the Vmic Mini operates on plug-in power from your camera, smartphone, or tablet, it requires no batteries. This reduces weight and makes the mic easier to use.

Cables for Cameras and Mobile Devices

The Vmic Mini includes two 3.5mm cables to ensure easy connectivity with your camera or mobile device.
  • Short, coiled right-angle 3.5mm TRS to right-angle 3.5mm TRS cable with gold-plated connectors for connection to the mic input of DSLR and mirrorless cameras
  • Short, coiled right-angle 3.5mm TRS to straight 3.5mm TRRS cable with gold-plated connectors for connection to the headphone jack of mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets
