The Rode RODELink Newsshooter Kit brings DIY journalists, vloggers, and reporters a cost-effective digital wireless microphone system with simple plug-and-record operation, clean and reliable sound, and multiple power options.
The Newsshooter Kit features a plug-on transmitter, along with a bodypack transmitter and a camera-mount receiver. The plug-on is designed to work primarily with handheld microphones for man-on-the-street interviews or with shotgun mics for wireless booming. Its XLR connector provides 48V phantom power, giving you the option of using it with condenser microphones (the mics are available separately). This versatile unit can also be used as a beltpack transmitter by simply plugging a lav into the additional 3.5mm mic input.
The RODELink operates anywhere in the world in the 2.4 GHz spectrum—well away from potential TV and radio interference. For ease of use, the transmitter and receiver are paired at the factory. Just power up and you’re good to go.
The system plugs into your DSLR or mirrorless camera, allowing you to capture audio for projects ranging from YouTube vlogs and wedding videos to corporate spots and red-carpet-style interviews. Up to eight systems can operate on set.
