What is a Cardioid Condenser Shotgun Microphone?

This microphone has a bit of a long name - it’s a “cardioid condenser shotgun video microphone.” Let’s quickly break down what each of those terms means:

What is a Cardioid Microphone?

Every microphone has a specific polar pattern, which refers to how it picks up sound in three-dimensional space. An omnidirectional microphone picks up sound equally from all directions, while a unidirectional microphone picks up sound more directly from the source it is pointed at.

A cardioid polar pattern is a specific type of unidirectional pattern that is heart-shaped (hence the name cardioid). This means this microphone is great for when you want to record audio more directionally while blocking out surrounding ambient noise, especially noise from behind.

Cardioid Polar Pattern

Cardioid polar pattern, which gets its name from its resemblance to a heart.

What is a Condenser Microphone?

When it comes to microphone construction, there are two main types: dynamic and condenser. Without getting too technical, condenser microphones have a wider frequency and better transient responses, higher sensitivity, and lower noise. This all adds up to generally better sound quality when compared to dynamic microphones, specifically for picking up quieter and more delicate sounds. Dynamic microphones are generally better for picking up louder audio, like with live music performances. Condenser microphones usually require external power as well - but this just means that it will be powered by your camera or smartphone and won’t require batteries.

What is a Shotgun Microphone?

A shotgun microphone is a more colloquial name for a type of unidirectional microphone. It gets its name from the fact that the long body of the microphone looks just like the barrel of a shotgun, and just like a shotgun, it must be pointed directly at the subject for it to be effective.Read more about shotgun microphones.

Could be more super cardio profile.

Works great! So mobile! Now I can shoot without heavy gear. Could be more super cardio directional.

Great Customer Service

My VXR10 works well for the price point, had an issue with one of the cords & gets some interference when used with my android phone. But I contacted Customer Service & we got It worked out! Thanks!

Performs Well & Meets Expectations

I wanted to get a good quality microphone for filming with my iPhone. After doing some research I decided on the Movo VXR10, and I'm glad I did. It is good quality at a reasonable price, comes with a bunch of accessories, and it cuts out a lot of the low frequency noises that the iPhone microphone usually makes, resulting in a sharper clearer sound. It's also very easy to use - plug and play - give it a try.


I bought this mic a few months ago and it is the BEST perches of EVER! It works great, looks good, is strong and doesn’t feel like it will break at all and a very well priced mic for what you get!!

Have 2, buying more

I already had the Rode VideoMicro but found it a bit too weak on gain, so I bought 2 Movo VXR10 for a special 360 setup. So far, the Movos offer a little more gain, meaning less noise floor because I don't need to up the levels to get enough range. (I'm filming a large group and need to catch people speaking from many angles while staying out of the way.) Another Movo is being ordered for a 4-cam setup, and I'll be extending physical reach of the mics by using mounts made from coathanger wire. (It works great and also improves shock absorption). Photo shows a test 360 setup with shorter mounts. 4-cam setup will have mics on 4 separate cameras with mini "booms" made from aforementioned coathanger wire.

Movo VXR10 Pink Is Amazing!

I researched a lot of budget friendly shotgun microphones on YouTube and found this one to be the best reviewed. I decided to purchase my very own and test it out for myself. I can honestly say that it is definitely worth the hype! It has great sound quality, feels sturdy and works like a charm on my Canon SL2. Overall, I’m fully satisfied with my decision to buy this product and would recommend it to anyone.

Great on camera mike

Easy to set up, use, sound quality good and reasonably priced. A good value.

Quick international shipping

Solidly built product!

My Go To Mic!

The fact that this was the fifth one I've bought should say it all. I love these mics! I have one for each of my cameras and I get great sound with every one of them!

Amazing service!!!

I had an amazing experience with Movo photo. I received an item from them for an upcoming trip and unfortunately it broke as I was clipping in the mic to the holder. Within five minutes of messaging the support they were in touch with me and had resolved the problem. I will tell everyone I know about these folks. Can’t wait to use the mic on my camera in Israel over the next ten days!
