Out of all the exhibitors at Cine Gear, Deity Microphones' V-Mic D3 Pro was picked for the 2018 Personal View's Best Product Award.
The World's First Smart Microphone
Inside the V-Mic D3 Pro lives a microprocessor that digitally shakes hands with the audio input it's been plugged into. The D3 Pro will work with a phone, tablet, DSLR, body pack transmitters; just about anything with a 3.5mm microphone jack. We have tested it on a dozen DSLR models, two dozen phones, a handful of Android based tablets and the microphone inputs on laptops. When plugged into devices that have a stereo microphone input, the V-Mic D3 Pro outputs dual mono tracks. It can also be adapted to some microphone inputs that use the mini XLR jack.
The World's Only Microphone with a Stepless Gain Knob
The V-Mic D3 Pro features a +20dB step-less analog gain adjustment dial. On each side of the dial the V-Mic D3 Pro features a bump guard that helps prevent the dial from being accidentally rotated. The +20dB of gain is added on a linear scale so you can dial in the exact amount of gain you need for the shot.
Inside the V-Mic D3 Pro lives a 320mAh Lithium Ion battery. Run time for the V-Mic D3 Pro is 51 hours and will automatic turn off if left in standby mode for 15 minutes. The battery is charged in a little less than 2 hrs.
On-Board Low Cut Filters
The V-Mic D3 Pro features two levels of low cut: 75hz and 150hz. And instead of a switch that is sunken into the frame that's hard to toggle, the D3 Pro does it all with a single button on top of the unit. With two levels of low cut the V-Mic D3 Pro is ready for even the windiest day.
Rycote Shock Mount
We partnered with Rycote to design this unique, one of a kind on-camera shock mount. Our design allows you to mount the D3 Pro how ever you want: forward, middle, back. This means you can center it over your camera for perfect balance when using a gimbal. Underneath the hot shoe you will find a threaded female mounting point so you can mount it with a friction arm and use the V-Mic D3 Pro as a plant mic.
Our partnership with Rycote also has allowed us to create a Location kit bundle that will allow you to mount the V-Mic D3 Pro professionally to a boom pole. Unlike other brands whose on camera mics can't really live outside of their own designed shock mount, the V-Mic D3 Pro can fit into most universal shock mounts on the market. The filmmaker's bundle kit adds a Rycote InVision Mount featuring the Duo-Lyre on a pistol grip and a D-XLR (phantom power to 3-volts 3.5mm adapter).
