Rode VideoMic Pro – Pre Orders


Just FYI about the shortage with the Rode VideoMic Pro Compact Shotgun Microphone. Ever since it's release, it's held up to the hype in both form and function. Definitely a winner even though the price is a bit on the high side for most. If you're waiting around for websites to say 'in stock', you might again be missing the boat (Hate to say I told ya so). I believe they should become available in the next few weeks, but most likely in limited quantities. You might just be able to get it in time for NAB.

If you think this is going to fit into your work flow, you might want to fall in line by placing a pre-order. If you're too far down on the pre-order line you can always cancel, and as one of the hottest microphones available for run-n-gun shooters, I don't think you'll have a problem selling it off if you end up with two. Heck, if they run out of stock (again), you might even be able to make a few bucks on auction (like those pesky iPad 2's). Call me crazy, but i'm already working with one and have signed up for another. I'll have my non-Pro Rode VideoMic one on auction as soon as this new one arrives.

On that note, check out the recent Press Release about Rode's new iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad application. I just downloaded it on my iPad and am watching a video that talks about microphones with DSLRs too! Awesome stuff, and it's all FREE to add to your Apple Portables.

    Ordered mine from hoping there would be less orders with them. Hopefully it doesn't mean they have less of a supply.

    Ordered mine 2 weeks ago from B&H. Got tired of waiting so I e-mailed about 10 on-line retailers. Turns out Henry's had some in stock although their website said it's out of stock. Within a few days, it arrived! (the price was same as B&H).
    Moral of the story is this: don't just wait around.

  4. ordered mine a week ago from B&H. happy to hear it's shipping early April. excited to try it out w/my 60D and the cheap juiced link to finally monitor some decent audio!

  5. I ordered mine about 2 weeks ago from B&H. I called Rode personally and they said that they were getting shipments in the first week of april, and i was assured that B&H is their biggest supplier. I just hope i'm high enough on the wait list to get in on this order!
