When we received the microphones from Deity at our office the timing couldn’t be more perfect. I was just going to leave to Seoul South-Korea to shoot a short documentary series about E-sports. To be more specific the Heartstone Master Tour. This gave me the perfect opportunity to test out this microphone for 10 days straight in a real life scenario.
With me I choose to take the Deity V-Mic D3 Pro. I used this microphone for different kinds of recordings. Form B-roll to interviews to voice-overs.
While shooting I never had time enough so everything needed to be fast. Luckily this microphone had a dial on the back which was LIFE SAVING! Whenever I was doing my interviews I just needed to turn the dial and that was it. I didn’t need to waste any time in the menus.
Something you would easily take for granted but is very handy is the long battery life. It has an internal battery so you don’t need to bring extra batteries with you. Next to this it has a long battery life, I didn’t even charged the microphone once in the whole trip! Other benefits are that it’s small enough to put easily in your backpack and that it turns itself on automatically when you turn on the camera.
Big thanks to Deity for their support on this video. Check out the microphone below that we used to make this video:
