The Deity V-Mic D4 is a high-quality, affordable microphone that captures directional audio and rejects sounds coming from off-camera.
The D4 uses Deity’s new offset shock mount that helps minimize handling noise.
The side-mounted USB-C output jack works great with a hybrid/DSLR camera or connects their mic to a PC for podcasting/streaming.
The V-Mic D4 also includes a new, upgraded foam pop filter with a reinforced rubber support backing plate. This gives the foam the strength it needs to support the included fur deadcat.
