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. Internal Battery 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.
