Saramonic Vmic5 PRO Camera-Mount Shotgun Microphone


Designed to help vloggers, content creators, mobile journalists, and run-and-gun videographers achieve clear, high-quality audio capture for their video shoots, the compact and lightweight Saramonic Vmic5 Pro camera-mount shotgun microphone offers even more level and tone controls than the Vmic5, along with focused supercardioid directionality, convenient headphone monitoring, and auto power. Its integrated shockmount allows easy mounting on a camera shoe or tripod while inhibiting vibrations and handling noise, and a detachable TRS cable is supplied for orderly wiring between the mic and your camera or portable recorder.

By operating on an internal rechargeable battery or USB bus power, the Vmic5 Pro is able to work with cameras that don't supply plug-in power or phantom power. The rear of the mic features onboard controls for the three-stage gain adjustment, intelligibility-enhancing treble boost, and high-pass filter—helpful functions that let you optimize the signal quality at the mic instead of during postproduction. The mic comes two types of windscreens for recording indoors or outside in high-wind environments.

Vmic5 vs Vmic5 Pro

The Pro version of the Vmic5 adds enhanced functionality and settings for experienced videographers while retaining the same compact size of the Vmic5.

  • 3-stage gain control (versus two stages on the Vmic5)

  • 2-stage bass control (versus one position on the Vmic5)

  • +5 dB treble boost

  • Automatic power on/off in response to plug-in power

  • Directional Response

    The Vmic5 Pro features a directional supercardioid polar pattern that focuses on sound in front of it while greatly attenuating sound from the sides, making it a considerable step up from the audio capture quality of internal camera mics.


    3-Stage Gain Control

    It features a gain switch with three positions—the +20 dB boost is for achieving clean gain on cameras with noisy preamps, the 0 dB setting is for use with high-quality preamps, and the -10 dB option is best when especially loud sources that could distort the recording.


    Bass Control and High Boost

    A high-pass filter, selectable at 75 or 150 Hz, eliminates low-frequency noise and rumble caused by HVAC systems, wind, or footsteps that can ruin a recording. Engage the +5 dB treble boost to heighten the intelligibility of dialogue.


    Camera Mount

    The integrated shockmount isolates the Vmic5 Pro from unwanted vibration noise and includes a built-in shoe mount, so it can be attached to cameras with ease. The bottom of the shoe mount features a 1/4"-20 threaded hole to enable mounting on a tripod.


    Battery or Bus Power

    The Vmic5 Pro runs on an internal USB-rechargeable battery for up to 120 hours, so your camera or recording device doesn't need to supply plug-in power or phantom power. Alternatively, the mic may be powered by a USB-connected device such as a power bank.


    Main and Headphone Outputs

    Use the included TRS output cable to connect the main 3.5mm output jack to your camera, mixer, or recorder. A built-in headphone output on the Vmic5 Pro enables you to hear your sound, even when your camera lacks a headphone jack.


    Expanded Connectivity

    Since the included cable is removable, it allows use of other 3.5mm TRS output cables (available separately) in its place. Attach a longer cable for use on a boompole, use a 3.5mm to Lightning cable (Saramonic SR-C2000) to connect to iPhones and iPads, 3.5mm to USB Type-C cable (Saramonic SR-C2001) to connect to Android smartphones, tablets, and computers, or a 3.5mm to TRRS cable (Saramonic SR-PMC2) for smartphones, tablets, and modern computers with a headphone port.


    Indoor and Outdoor Wind Protection

    The inclusion of a foam windscreen and a furry windshield allows you to record anywhere with less noise from wind.
