The Godox VDS-M1 Shotgun Microphone shotgun microphone offers mobile videographers, location sound recordists, and indie filmmakers the flexibility needed to capture clear, quality speech and ambience in a variety of situations, whether shooting indoors or outside.
Its sensitive condenser capsule can be switched between cardioid and supercardioid polar patterns to control the directional characteristics for enhanced rear- or side-facing rejection.
The VDS-M1’s alloy-constructed housing provides the benefits of light weight and resistance to RF interference. Connect its XLR 3-pin output to an external mic preamp and run it on phantom power, or use the supplied XLR to 3.5mm cable and 1/4″ adapter to plug the mic into a camera or mixer while powering it via a single AA battery. A foam windscreen is included to help reduce wind noise.
