Overview

The Deity V-Mic D3 Video Microphone is a supercardioid on-camera shotgun microphone offering directional audio capture and broad device compatibility for videographers, YouTubers, and sound recordists. With a built-in microprocessor that automatically configures its TRRS connector to work with most 3.5mm mic input jacks, the V-Mic D3 is compatible with a variety of DSLRs, camcorders, mobile devices, and portable audio recorders. Setup with your camera is simple and efficient using the supplied Rycote adjustable hot-shoe shockmount and 3.5mm TRRS coiled cable.

The pre-polarised condenser capsule utilises a supercardioid polar pattern, which yields low off-axis colouration and high SPL handling. Boasting a 50 Hz to 20 kHz frequency range with low noise and distortion, the V-Mic D3 adheres to the demanding standards of high-resolution recording. The microphone may be powered via a single AAA alkaline, NiMH, or lithium battery; automatic power saving conserves battery life by entering standby mode when your camera or device is turned off.

The lightweight aluminium body is finished in a low-reflection paint, ensuring that it won't weigh down your camera or induce distracting glare. The V-Mic D3 includes a foam windscreen to minimise noise from wind or HVAC systems.

Key Features:

Auto-Configuring 3.5mm Connector

The V-Mic D3 incorporates a microprocessor that automatically adapts its 3.5mm TRRS connector to work with most 3.5mm microphone jacks. Out of the box, the V-Mic D3 is compatible with many DSLRs, camcorders, smartphones and tablets (late-model iOS devices require Apple's Lightning to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter), portable audio recorders, bodypack transmitters, and laptops.

Low Off-Axis Colouration

The V-Mic D3's pickup pattern remains similar across essential frequencies, yielding low off-axis colouration. Novice and experienced videographers can capture consistent audio quality when dealing with sources that vary their positions.

Low-Noise Electronics

Thanks to the 14mm condenser capsule and low-noise, low-distortion electronics, the V-Mic D3 provides clean audio, which means less time spent in post-production processing your tracks with noise-reduction software.

Long Battery Life

The V-Mic D3 uses a single AAA battery (alkaline, NiMH rechargeable, or lithium) for power, and features a one-button on/off switch. When turned on, the microphone is ready in standby mode; it automatically goes into run mode when your camera or device turns on. This also allows you to save battery on your microphone when you turn your camera off. A lithium AAA battery provides up to 208 hours of operating time, and over 6300 hours of standby time.

Convenient Accessories

The included foam windscreen reduces wind noise and handling noise. The Rycote hot-shoe shockmount minimises the transfer of vibrations by decoupling the mic from your camera. Connect the V-Mic D3 to your device via the supplied 3.5mm TRRS coiled cable.

    Chosen with care after reading reviews from many sources. While I own slightly better performing microphones, with, as I recall, prices to match, this mic. covers a high percentage of what I do. It could do with a wind-cutter of the 'hairy 'sausage' variety. I have just married it to my latest purchase, (of which you will be aware), a Tascam DR 60D, audio recorder. They look to me to be an excellent combination. Of particular note is the ease of setting up this mic. for non-techophobes; it could not be simpler. A small threaded brass collar which took me about 20 minutes to machine, coupled to a Smallrig cold shoe (1241) to mount the setup to the top of the Tascam box-of-tricks rounds off the kit. The experience rather dampened, however, by Courier Post sending the package to Dunedin, via Palmerton North which delayed delivery beyond their own limit in the tracking notification. Not quite in the same league, however with Australian Post, who sent a watercolour painting we had bought while on holiday in North Queensland a few years ago, to Dunedin, via Broxbourne in England. It arrived on the verge of the insurers paying out.
