The V-Mic D4 Mini lets you capture great audio without the need for bulky audio gear. Just plug it into your camera’s microphone input and you are ready to go.
AUX 3.5mm Input
The V-Mic D4 Mini also has a very special feature that exemplifies our company motto of “Do More. Carry Less.” It’s 3.5mm AUX input sends audio to the right channel of your camera – perfect for adding a lav mic or micro wireless receiver. No longer do you need to buy special splitter cables. No more cable mess.
No Batteries Needed
The V-Mic D4 Mini runs completely off of the 3V Plug-In Power provided by your camera’s microphone jack. Plus, the 3V Plug-In Power is passed along through the 3.5mm input jack on the V-Mic D4 Mini, allowing you to use passive TRS lavalier microphones.
Prevent bounce and keep your cables in place using the cable management slots on the cold shoe. Large slots are for 3.5mm camera cables while the smaller slots are for lavalier wires.
What Makes V-Mic D4 Mini Different?
- Extra Audio Tracks: The microphone features a unique input jack that allows you to insert a
secondary audio source on the left channel of your camera. This lets the operator capture the scene’s natural audio but also a wireless microphone of someone talking to camera. Great for videographers, wedding shooters or online content creators.
- Wind Reduction: The faux fur windshield provides wind protection up to 20mph making this microphone ready for rough elements.
- Medium Diaphragm: While other microphones in the micro-shotgun division feature capsules as small as 6mm, our V-Mic D4 Mini features our 4th generation 14mm medium diaphragm capsule – the same capsule found in the rest of our D4 series of video microphones.
