EEVblog #182 – Rode Videomic Shotgun Microphone Hack

Dave does a quick hack on his Rode Videomic so he can actually see the battery LED when he’s in front of the camera.
UPDATE: After further research it turns out the existing LED constitutes the majority of the product current consumption. So I’ll re-wire this new one in series with the existing LED and drop the current as well to increase the battery life.
