The +20dB step-less gain knob finally gives DSLR users a psychical gain knob instead of having to dive through menus. It’s like having a audio mixer built into a microphone. The Auto-adjusting Smart 3.5mm TRRS output adapts to almost any type of 3.5mm TS, TRS, or TRRS microphone input you plug into it. This makes the V-Mic D3 Pro able to be plugged into DSLRs, point-and-shoot cameras, camcorders, action cameras, smart phones, and tablets. And with the D.XLR the Deity V-Mic D3 Pro can be plugged into larger cameras or audio recorders that feature XLR audio inputs.
The included adjustable Rycote shock mount features an adjustable sliding cold-shoe. This allows you to move the mount forward and backward in case you need to accommodate the camera operator, other accessories, or need to help balance it on a gimbal. The cold-shoe mount also features a 3/8” threaded mount and a 3/8” to 1/4” bushing adapter so you can use it with a whole host of accessories already on the market. The microphones single tubular design means you can treat it like you would any other microphone.
The Location Kit also includes the Rycote Pistol Grip Shock Mount and the Deity D-XLR. With the Rycote Pistol Grip and D-XLR you can turn your V-Mic D3 Pro from being an on-camera mic into a microphone ready for a boom pole. No other DSLR microphone has ever been able to use a real boom pole shock mount until now.
