Deity V-Mic D4 DUO Dual-Capsule Micro Camera-Mount Shotgun Microphone
V-Mic D4 DUO
Capture The Whole Scene
Tell The Whole Story
The V-Mic D4 DUO lets you capture the story you want to tell from every angle. With its unique dual-capsule design, the D4 DUO allows you, for the first time ever, to record the audio coming from behind the camera in full fidelity. No longer will your interview questions sound distant and muffled. No longer will you have to rotate your microphone when you want to narrate something you are showing your audience.
- Dual Cardioid Pickup Patterns
- Low noise circuitry
- AUX Input for lavaliers microphones or wireless receivers
- Rycote® LYRE shockmount
- 1/4″ and 3/8″ threaded mounting options
The D4 DUO weighs only 40 grams which makes it one of the lightest compact camera microphones on the market. Now you can add high quality audio to your camera setup without having to weigh it down.
AUX 3.5mm Input
The D4 DUO also has a very special feature that exemplifies our company motto of “Do More. Carry Less.” Its 3.5mm AUX input bypasses audio from the rear capsule and sends it to the right channel of your camera. No longer do you need to carry around bulky camera mixers or hard-to-find stereo splitter cables. All of that is built into the microphone.
Simply flip the switch to stereo and plug in your lavalier or wireless receiver. This is perfect for when you want to capture an interview with someone but also need to record the sounds of the environment on a separate track that you can use to balance the whole soundscape of the scene.
Designed for fast-moving, run-and-gun DSLR/mirrorless videographers, the Deity Microphones V-Mic D4 DUO is a compact and lightweight on-camera microphone that offers a smart feature set aimed at capturing better-sounding interviews from the field.
The V-Mic D4 DUO offers a dual-capsule design, with one cardioid capsule focused on the subject in front of the mic and a second aimed at the rear, allowing it to pick up audio from the camera operator/interviewer/journalist filming the scene. Instead of being forced to shout for the benefit of a microphone, it lets the interviewer speak in a normal tone of voice without sounding muffled and distant, providing improved sound for interviews and voice-overs.
The versatile V-Mic D4 DUO also features a 3.5mm Aux input designed to accommodate a lavalier mic or wireless transmitter (both available separately). If you have time to mic up your subject with a lav, simply plug it into the jack and flip the stereo switch that bypasses the rear mic on the D4. The lav is recorded on the camera’s right channel, while the front capsule of the D4 DUO is routed to the left. With the audio from each mic on separate tracks, you can dial in the exact blend you want of the close-miked sound from the lav and the ambience of the on-camera mic in post-production. No longer do you need to carry around bulky camera mixers or hard-to-find stereo splitter cables to achieve similar results.
Weighing only 1.4 oz, the V-Mic D4 DUO adds quality audio to your camera rig without weighing it down. Included are two faux-fur windscreens to reduce wind noise when shooting outdoor, a Rycote Lyre shockmount to reduce vibrations and handling noise, and a coiled 3.5mm output cable.
