Most people approach vlogging thinking that the secret to a good video is an expensive camera. Not so. What really sets the Casey Neistat's of the world apart from the YouTube mashes is sound.
Fortunately, Rode has put together some nifty products to get the best out of your audio - and its new GO range is the perfect place to start if you want something simple and functional.
Wireless GO is an ultra-compact wireless mic system designed for voice recording on-the-go. The transmitter acts as either as a clip-on wireless mic, thanks to the built-in condenser capsule, or as the world’s smallest belt pack for a lav mic via 3.5 mm TRS.
The transmitter and receiver weigh just 31g each, and they pair in just a few seconds, making set-up super quick and easy.
More importantly, you get up to 7-hours of battery on a fully charge.
While the Wireless GO does have a built-in mic, a lavalier will add range to your videos. Fortunately, Rode has that covered, too.
Lavalier GO is designed to perform brilliantly in a wide range of broadcast applications, from filmmaking to vlogging to journalism. Featuring a discreet 4.5mm omnidirectional microphone, the Lavalier GO delivers crystal clear audio in all environments and is incredibly forgiving when it comes to placement on talent, allowing for greater flexibility in fast-paced situations.
The Wireless GO is available now, and the Lavalier will be in stores soon.
