Pro video blog…Produced by Philip Johnston DoP/Editor


Using my Osmo recently with my older Rycote softie I noticed some wind noise which I was unaware of till I got back to base, I was using the new RODE NTG-4 short shotgun mic with the older softie.

I phoned Rycote and they were delighted to send me a sample of their new Super Softie for review…the results were…ahh now that would be telling.


Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.

  1. You would not be the first to be disappointed with Rycote’s original softies’ abilitiws to reduce wind noise. I complained to them several years ago about how they rarely stopped wind noise in normal environments. I hope this solves the problem.

  2. Looking forward to your review. I have constant problems with wind noise. These are expensive, so are they worth the price over a standard furry cat?
