The Saramonic Vmic Pro Mark II is a battery-powered advanced on-camera shotgun microphone that delivers detailed, full-frequency, broadcast-quality sound to DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, video cameras, recorders and more. Ideal for advanced content creators, filmmakers, journalists and vloggers looking to take their audio to a higher level. It features a super cardioid polar pattern that provides ultra-focused directionality and excellent off-axis rejection of audio from sides and rear. It also features ultra-low noise electronics, versatile features that make it easy to optimise your sound and a full-sized 6.3” (160mm) x 0.9” (23mm) interference tube. Making the Vmic Pro Mark II capable of reproducing the wider frequency response of a professional XLR shotgun microphone, but with 3.5mm output and at a fraction of the price.

High-Quality Sound and Enhanced Control
The Vmic Pro Mark II features an array of selectable audio controls that allow users to tailor the mic’s sound and performance to always get optimum sound. It features a 3-stage gain control with a +20dB boost switch for achieving ultra-clean gain on cameras with noisy preamps, 0dB for high-quality preamps, and -10dB pad for cleanly capturing loud sounds without distortion. A 150Hz high-pass filter eliminates low-frequency noise and rumble caused by HVAC systems, wind or footsteps that can ruin a recording. A +6dB high-frequency boost enhances vocal intelligibility and compensates for lost frequencies when using a furry windscreen, like the VMIC-WSPRO (sold separately). All of the controls are easy to use and easy to see, even in low light conditions.
Rugged and Adaptable
Built with durable metal construction, the Vmic Pro Mark II will handily survive the demanding world of video production. An impressively robust and virtually indestructible integrated shock mount isolates it from unwanted vibration noise and includes a camera-shoe mount with metal 1/4”-20 thread. Allowing you to easily mount it to cameras, boom poles, stands, camera cages and tripods with ease.
Headphone Monitoring and Expanded Connectivity
A built-in headphone output on the Vmic Pro Mark II enables you to hear your sound, even when your camera lacks a headphone jack. And the 3.5mm camera output includes a short, coiled output cable to connect to cameras, mixers and recorders. But because the cable is removable, it allows users to use any 3.5mm TRS output cable in its place. Attach a longer cable for use on a boom pole, use a 3.5mm to Lightning (Saramonic SR-C2000) to connect to iPhones and iPads, 3.5mm to USB-C (Saramonic SR-C2001) to connect to Android smartphones, tablets and computers, or a 3.5mm to TRRS (SR-PMC2) for smartphones, tablets and modern computers with a headphone port.
