Designed to provide a noteworthy improvement in sound quality over microphones built into cameras, smartphones, and portable recorders, the Deity Microphones V-Mic D3 is a camera-mount shotgun microphone offering directional audio capture and broad device compatibility for mobile journalists, vloggers, YouTubers, and run-and-gun videographers.

With a built-in microprocessor that automatically configures its TRRS connector to work with most 3.5mm mic input jacks, the V-Mic D3 is compatible with a variety of DSLRs, camcorders, mobile devices, and portable audio recorders. Attachment to your camera, boompole, or tripod is simple and efficient using the supplied Rycote adjustable shockmount and 3.5mm TRRS coiled cable.

The V-Mic D3 is powered primarily by a single AAA alkaline, NiMH, or lithium battery; plug-in power (bias voltage) from your camera or mixer is only required to turn on/off the mic. Automatic power saving conserves battery life by entering standby mode when your camera or device is turned off. The lightweight aluminum body is finished in a low-reflection paint, ensuring that it won't weigh down your camera or induce distracting glare.

Auto-Configuring 3.5mm Connector

The V-Mic D3 incorporates a microprocessor that automatically adapts its 3.5mm TRRS connector to work with most 3.5mm microphone jacks. Out of the box, the V-Mic D3 is compatible with many DSLRs, camcorders, smartphones and tablets (late-model iOS devices require Apple's Lightning to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter), portable audio recorders, bodypack transmitters, and laptops. Visit the Deity Microphones website to see a comprehensive list of compatible devices.

Low Off-Axis Coloration

The V-Mic D3's supercardioid pickup pattern remains similar across essential frequencies, yielding low off-axis coloration. Novice and experienced videographers can capture consistent audio quality when dealing with sources that vary their positions.

Low-Noise Electronics

Thanks to the 14mm condenser capsule and low-noise, low-distortion electronics, the V-Mic D3 provides clean audio with a high signal-to-noise ratio, which means less time spent in post-production processing your tracks with noise-reduction software.

Long Battery Life

The V-Mic D3 uses a single AAA battery (alkaline, NiMH rechargeable, or lithium) for power and features a one-button on/off switch. When turned on, the microphone is ready in standby mode; it automatically goes into run mode when your camera or device turns on. This also allows you to save battery on your microphone when you turn your camera off.

A single alkaline AAA battery yields up to 166 hours of run time, whereas a lithium AAA battery provides up to 208 hours of operating time. The power switch and power LED indicate aid in power management; the LED will be green when the V-Mic D3 is on or red when power is low.

Convenient Accessories

The Rycote shockmount supports attachment to a camera shoe mount, boompole, or tripod, and it minimizes the transfer of vibrations by decoupling the mic from your camera or stand. The included foam windscreen reduces noise from HVAC systems and light wind. For enhanced protection against wind noise in outdoor shoots, use a windjammer such as the Rycote 7cm Classic-Softie windshield (available separately).
