Deity Microphones V-Mic D3 Pro Camera-Mount Shotgun Microphone
Designed to provide a noteworthy improvement in sound quality over microphones built into cameras, smartphones, and portable recorders, the Deity Microphones V-Mic D3 Pro is a camera-mount shotgun microphone offering directional audio capture, adjustable gain and filtering, and broad device compatibility for 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 Pro 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.
A stepless knob on the mic’s bottom provides up to 20 dB of gain for easy optimization of levels. Activate the onboard low-cut filter at 75 Hz or 150 Hz to reduce rumble and bass buildup. The microphone is powered primarily by the internal 51-hour rechargeable battery; plug-in power (bias voltage) from your camera or mixer is only required to turn on/off the mic. The lightweight aluminum body is finished in a low-reflection paint, ensuring that it won’t weigh down your camera or induce distracting glare.

Long Battery Life
The V-Mic D3 Pro uses a built-in 320mAh lithium battery, which powers the mic for up to 51 hours. Plug-in power is only used to wake the mic from its standby mode. The internal battery recharges via USB in approximately two hours.
Automatic power saving conserves battery life by entering standby mode when your camera or device is turned off. The power switch and power LED indicate aid in power management; the LED will be red when power is low.
Deity Microphones D-XLR 3.5mm to XLR Adapter with Phantom to Plug-In Power Conversion
The Deity Microphones D-XLR is a sonically transparent 3.5mm to XLR adapter with phantom to plug-in power conversion designed to allow 3.5mm-equipped mics to be used with XLR-equipped mixers and recorders, making it a welcome tool for sound recordists and videographers. Connect your Deity V-Series microphone (or other mic terminated with a standard 3.5mm TRS plug) to the D-XLR’s gold-plated 3.5mm input, then route the XLR 3-pin output via a standard XLR cable (available separately) to your mixer, portable audio recorder, or external microphone preamplifier.
The D-XLR converts 12 to 48 VDC phantom power from your mic preamp to 3V plug-in power, which is required for operation of many 3.5mm-equipped microphones. The CNC-machined aluminum housing ensures rugged durability, and is sized to work with pistol grips and boompoles.
