The Deity Microphones V-Mic D3 On-Camera Microphone is the workhorse onboard mic you've always wanted, with a lightweight, uni-body, aluminum metal housing that provides the necessary durability to endure the same conditions as your camera. The V-Mic D3 features superior off-axis sound performance, low self-noise, and low distortion (compared to other on-camera microphones on the market in this price range).

As soon as you plug the V-Mic D3 into a 3.5mm microphone jack of a device, its microprocessor shakes hands with the device. This eliminates the need for most adapter cables (late model iOS devices still require Apple's Lightning to 3.5mm Headphone Jack Adapter). Out-of-the-box, the V-Mic D3 is compatible with:

  • DSLRs
  • Camcorders
  • Smartphones
  • Handy Recorders
  • Laptop
  • Bodypack Transmitters
  • Tablets

NOTE: Visit Deity's compatibility page for further details on manufacturer-tested compatibility.


  • Low noise circuitry
  • Extremely Low Distortion THD (<0.1%)
  • High-grade SNR (max. 78dB @-32dB sensitivity)
  • Same 14mm Prepolarized Condensor Capsule as the V-Mic D3 Pro
  • 150 Hr Battery Life @ 900mAh NiMH AAA / 12 Hrs x 4 = 50 Shoot-Days
    • You can shoot for 50 weeks before needing to recharge your (4) AAA batteries (that is nearly a year’s worth of weddings on one charge)
    • NiMH batteries can be recharged ~500 times
