The Rode Stereo Video Mic Pro features a hot shoe mounting - perfect for placing atop a camera including digital SLRs which record video. A 3.5mm jack output can be plugged into your camera's audio input and you're away - great quality stereo sound which overcomes the limitations of your camera's built in microphone to deliver high fidelity audio in demanding situations.
Advanced control including a -10dB pad, low cut filter, integrated shockmount and a +20dB preamp that is likely to be higher quality & lower noise than the mic preamp in most cameras. These features of the Rode Stereo Videomic Pro provide great control over your sound and allow you to get the best quality signal for your video with less need for post processing.

Here's what Rode say about the Stereo Video Mic Pro
Building on the success of the VideoMic Pro, which launched in early 2011 and quickly became the defacto standard for DSLR on-camera audio, and RØDE's original Stereo VideoMic, the new Stereo VideoMic Pro provides a high quality stereo option for videographers, and is ideal for recording music, and the atmospheric ambience essential in building a realistic audio scene.
Based around a matched pair of high sensitivity 1/2" cardioid condenser capsules in a coincident XY pair, the Stereo VideoMic Pro provides a wide stereo image with natural depth.
The Stereo VideoMic Pro builds on the feature set of the VideoMic Pro, with an ergonomic form factor perfectly suited to DSLR, consumer camcorders and large-sensor video cameras. The integrated shock mounting system provides superior isolation from vibration and mechanical noise that can otherwise degrade the recording quality. Additionally the lightweight yet robust multi-strand cable provides excellent acoustic decoupling from the camera and offers significantly lower noise transference than traditional audio cable.
The user friendly designed rear of the microphone body features the power and equalisation controls, including a high pass filter at 75Hz which is designed to cut out the noise generated by air conditioning, traffic and other undesirable low frequency interference.
A -10dB PAD allows the user to reduce the sensitivity of the microphone, making it suitable for recording loud sound sources such as live music or at sporting events.
Like the VideoMic Pro, the Stereo VideoMic Pro features a +20dB level boost specifically designed to provide a higher quality signal with DSLR cameras. When activated, the typically low quality camera preamp level can be reduced, resulting in a lower noise floor and much clearer recording.
