On this video Bohuš Blahut from Fotodiox takes a look at a new Aputure V-Mic D2 – a small shotgun microphone with the versatility to be both an on-camera mic, as well as a mountable microphone on a stand or boom pole.
There are many shotgun microphones you can choose from if you are looking to improve the sound of your videos. The Aputure V-Mic D2 is a relativly low cost option and it is interesting to see how well it performs.
Here are some of the features of the new Aputure V-Mic D2:
- Mic base includes a build in pre-amp.
- Adjustable sensitivity with visual levels.
- Super-Cardioid recording pattern mic.
- Adjustable AF PEAK Capable of synchronizing with any device.
- Built in high-quality battery.
Below you can see a more extensive review including some sound test by TubeShooterMag which also tested the mic against some of RODE’s popular Shotgun mics.
The Aputure V-Mic D2 Shotgun Microphone currently sells for around $130 (on Amazon).
