How It Works

Unbox the Vlogger Kit USB-C Edition with confidence, knowing that all you have to supply is your mobile device and an idea for your next shoot. In a few simple steps, you'll be set up and ready to roll.

 

  • Mount the phone holder atop the tripod stand and secure your smartphone in the phone holder 
  • Attach the MicroLED light to the phone holder and plug the microphone into the USB Type-C port of your smartphone
  • Turn on the MicroLED light, open your app of choice, and begin filming

To monitor audio from the mic or from playback of your recording, just connect headphones to the 3.5mm port on the microphone.

Microphone Features

Durable and Small

At under 2.9" long and 1 ounce light, the VideoMic Me-C is an unobtrusive companion for your smartphone and its durable aluminum body aids in RF rejection.

Condenser Mic with Directional Sound Pickup

Whereas most built-in smartphone microphones pick up sound from all directions, this microphone utilizes a cardioid polar pattern to focus on sound in front of it while attenuating sound entering from the rear. Its directional condenser element delivers more detailed audio than the mics typically found in mobile devices.

Easy Connection to Smartphone

Since the VideoMic Me-C is outfitted with a USB Type-C connector, it can plug directly into the USB Type-C port of your smartphone, no cable or adapter required. A rubber clip is included to ensure stable and secure attachment to your mobile device.

Powered by Your Mobile Device

The VideoMic Me-C runs on power from your mobile device, so no batteries are required to operate it. Just connect the microphone to your smartphone and forget about swapping or charging batteries.

Headphone Port

With the VideoMic Me-C, there's no guessing whether your audio sounds good. Its 3.5mm output lets you plug in headphones for convenient real-time monitoring while the mic remains connected to your mobile device. It also allows you to listen to playback of your recorded content.

24-Bit Digital Resolution

The integrated analog-to-digital converter operates at up to 24-bit / 48 kHz for industry-standard signal quality and compatibility with most audio and video recording apps.

Furry Windshield Minimizes Wind Noise

The VideoMic Me-C includes a furry windshield to minimize unwanted wind noise from breezes, fans, heaters, and air conditioners.

SmartGrip Features

Smartphone Mounting

The SmartGrip is a high-quality solution for mounting a smartphone on a tripod. It features rugged metal construction with rubberized grips and is suitable for mounting phones from 2.6 to 3.4" in width.

Extra Mounting Points

The SmartGrip features a cold shoe mount for easy attachment of Rode VideoMics and other accessories. Three 1/4" thread attachment points allow for easy mounting on tripods and grips in a range of orientations.

Tripod 2 Features

Supports a Variety of Devices

The Tripod 2 is a sturdy three-position tripod for mounting cameras, microphones, and other accessories.

Closed or Open Positions

In the closed position, the Tripod 2 is perfect for handheld use. The tripod legs can also be opened out to a mid or wide setting for optimal positioning and stability.

1/4" Thread

The Tripod 2 has a 1/4" thread for attaching cameras and camera accessories.

MicroLED Features

Compact and Rechargeable

The MicroLED is a compact rechargeable on-camera light. It is ideal for vlogging, newsgathering, mobile filmmaking, and documentary production.

Adjustable Brightness

The MicroLED features four adjustable brightness settings, and a clip-on diffuser with eight colored filters.

Over Four Hours of Run Time

Power is supplied via the USB Type-C charging port, which both charges the internal battery and can also operate the light. Run time is over four hours at low brightness.
