RODE VideoMic NTG On-Camera Shotgun Microphone
The RODE VideoMic NTG is a broadcast-grade, feature-packed shotgun microphone optimised for on-camera use. It features the same revolutionary acoustic design as the NTG5 broadcast shotgun microphone, which delivers unmatched transparency & a natural, uncoloured sound. Add to this an incredibly flat frequency response, highly directional supercardioid polar pattern, & very low self-noise, & what you have is a compact on-camera microphone that contends with the world’s best shotgun mics.
As well as sounding outstanding, the VideoMic NTG is extremely flexible, with an array of tools & features to help you take on any recording situation. Digital switching gives you access to a high-pass filter, -20dB pad, high frequency boost, & safety channel, plus there is a unique infinitely variable gain control that allows you to precisely tailor the output as you need. Its auto-sensing 3.5mm output detects what device you are connected to (camera or mobile) & switches to accommodate – no more messing around with adaptor cables! There is also a handy new dB peak warning light, so you can always ensure your audio isn’t clipping.
The VideoMic NTG is so much more than just an on-camera mic. As well as pairing perfectly with DSLRs, compact cameras, & smartphones – either on-camera, as a boom mic, or on a pistol grip – it is also a fully-featured USB microphone that can be plugged into a computer, tablet, or smartphone. On top of this, the 3.5mm jack doubles as a headphone output for seamless monitoring of audio while using the USB output.
The VideoMic NTG is officially MFI-certified (Made for iPhone, iPad & iPod).
To connect your VideoMic NTG to Lightning-equipped iOS devices, you’ll need the RODE SC15 or RODE SC19 cable.
