Shure LensHopper Camera Mounted Condenser Microphone - Black | VP83

VP83

An instant upgrade to professional sound with your DSLR camera or HD camcorder; the VP83 is a shotgun microphone that will take your video production to the next level. Two sliders allow for quick adjustment to microphone gain and a low-cut filter to tailor your sound, wherever you find yourself creating. We’ve spent years perfecting our sound, so let us take care of your audio on your next ‘run and gun’ videography shoot with this shoe-mounted microphone for full high-definition recordings.

The VP83 allows you to easily capture detailed, high definition audio when video recording with a DSLR camera. It can also be used with portable audio recorders. The integrated coiled 3.5 mm cable connects directly to the recording device’s audio input.

What sound characteristics does it add to video recordings?

The VP83 achieves natural audio reproduction with its wide frequency range, high sensitivity, low self noise, and full low end response. Its shotgun format enables it to provide a supercardioid / lobar polar pattern. This is the most tightly directional pickup pattern possible, and it effectively blocks out background noise. A three position audio gain switch (-10 dB, 0 dB, +20 dB) lets you compensate for the loudness of different sources.

How does the VP83 handle varied and challenging acoustic environments?

You never know what you’ll face when recording outside of the studio, so the VP83 is designed to be resilient to the common challenges of on location filming:

A switchable low cut filter reduces pickup of distracting low frequency background noise
An integrated Rycote Lyre shock mounting system, developed exclusively for the VP83, provides superior isolation from vibration and mechanical noise
The supplied foam windscreen protects against wind noise when shooting outdoors without impacting sound quality
The Rycote Windjammer synthetic fur windscreen can be used with the VP83
Superior RF immunity protects against unwanted audio artefacts from nearby cellular and RF devices
