For use with DSLR cameras and HD camcorders, it offers digital flash recording / playback (MicroSDHC) capabilities that enable WAV file capture at 24-bit / 48 kHz sampling rate.


This compact shotgun microphone features detailed, high-definition audio with full low-end response for professional results every time. The intuitive menu and one-button recording function make it fast and easy to use in almost any environment.


The VP83F includes:

  • 2 AA alkaline batteries for 10 hours of battery life in Record mode

  • Detachable 3.5 mm gold-plated audio connector output cable

  • Integrated digital flash recording (MicroSDHC, up to 32 GB) for WAV file capture at 24-bit / 48 kHz sampling rate

  • Dedicated headphone audio output for real-time headphone monitoring

  • High sensitivity and low self-noise with wide frequency range for natural audio reproduction

  • Highly directional supercardioid / lobar polar pattern that rejects unwanted off-axis audio while clearly capturing the intended sound source

  • Superior RF immunity that avoids unwanted audio artifacts from cellular and RF devices

  • Easily accessible MicroSD card slot that allows quick “pop-out” card access


Intuitive Menu and Controls

  • Easy-to-read, back-lit LCD screen that displays audio and battery metering, track information, headphone volume, mic gain, low-cut filter, and remaining recording time

  • Five-position joystick that provides advanced user controls for headphone monitoring, low-cut filter and mic gain adjustments, track management, and playback support

  • One-touch record button that facilitates fast audio capture and allows for pausing and stopping

  • Adjustable user gain (up to 60 dB in 1 dB increments) for fine-tuning audio


Durable and Lightweight
