The Saramonic SR-VM4 is an AA-powered on-camera shotgun microphone that delivers detailed, full-frequency, broadcast-quality sound for a remarkable price. Ideal for advanced content creators, filmmakers, journalists and vloggers filming with DSLR, mirrorless or video cameras looking to take their audio to a higher level. It features a supercardioid polar pattern that provides focused directionality and excellent off-axis rejection of audio from sides and rear with a full-sized 5.5 x 0.9” (140 x 23mm) interference tube. Making the SR-VM4 capable of reproducing the wider frequency response of a professional XLR shotgun microphone, but with 3.5mm output and at a small fraction of the price.
High-Quality Sound and Control
The SR-VM4 features a useful array of audio controls that allow users to tailor the mic’s sound and performance to easily get optimum sound. It features a 3-stage gain control with a +20dB boost switch for achieving ultra-clean gain on cameras with noisy preamps, 0dB for high-quality preamps, and -10dB pad for cleanly capturing loud sounds without distortion. A 75Hz high-pass filter eliminates low-frequency noise and rumble caused by HVAC systems, wind or footsteps that can ruin a recording. It also features up-to 720-hours of runtime with high-quality AA batteries and a power-on/low battery LED indicator.
Full-Sized and Rugged, yet Lightweight
Featuring a full-sized interference tube, the SR-VM4 is designed to deliver the wider frequency response, detailed sound and off-axis rejection of a professional XLR shotgun microphone, but at the price of an entry-level mini-shotgun microphone. An ideal choice for DSLR, Mirrorless and Video Cameras shooters who need the sound and performance of real shotgun microphone. Built with durable ABS construction, the SR-VM4 is rugged enough to survive the demanding world of video production, but at less than 5oz, it is extremely lightweight.

Whether you are filming indoors in at home or in a studio, or outdoors on the street or on a beach, the SR-VM4 is ready for film anywhere, anytime. Both a foam windscreen and a furry windshield are included. Allowing you to film with confidence wherever your run-and-gun adventures may take you without the need to purchase additional wind protection. An integrated shock mount isolates it from unwanted vibration noise when in motion and includes a camera-shoe mount with metal 1/4”-20 thread. Allowing you to easily mount it to cameras, boom poles, stands, camera cages and tripods with ease.
