Designed to provide the basic accessories for shock-mounting a shotgun microphone atop a camera for indoor or outdoor environments, this B&H Kit features the Rode NTG2 battery-/phantom-powered shotgun microphone, a Rycote adjustable shoe shockmount, a Rycote Super-Softie windshield, and a short XLR cable with one right-angled and one straight connector.
The kit addresses the needs of videographers who prefer a cost-effective shotgun microphone setup that stays out of the frame while maintaining smooth, natural audio reproduction, low handling noise, and minimal wind noise. With its XLR output and dual powering modes, the NTG2 mic is well suited for use with professional camcorders, portable audio recorders, and multitrack field recorders, even if they don't supply phantom power.
Capture quality sound indoors or outside for your next indie film, TV shoot, or documentary project with the Rode NTG2 shotgun microphone. With low handling noise, the ability to endure loud sound sources before distortion, and support for battery or phantom power, the NTG2 offers a versatile, cost-effective solution for recording clean dialogue and sound effects.
The NTG2's elevated sensitivity allows it to produce strong output levels without having to apply extreme gain at your mic preamp. Sonically, the NTG2 delivers consistently clear sound due in part to its gentle rise in high frequencies and its rumble-reducing selectable low-cut filter. The durable and lightweight high-grade aluminum housing is finished in hard-wearing epoxy paint to withstand the stress of location recording.
The InVision Video Hot Shoe Microphone Suspension from Rycote slides into the hot-shoe mount of most commercial camcorders to hold a microphones with a diameters between 0.7 to 0.9" (19 to 25mm), while protecting against camera motor noise and vibrations. It is designed to enable camcorder users and videographers to capture the best possible sound for their productions using an external camera-mounted microphone.
The InVision Video uses the patented Lyre Suspension webs with a molded grip design to prevent your mic from slipping or twisting. For ease in finding the right mounting position, the InVision Video rotates freely 360° on a slotted 4" (100mm) mounting bar. The cradle can slide freely on this slotted bar to keep your mic out of the shot.
The black Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR M to Angled XLR F Microphone Cable (1.5') is designed to be an extremely quiet and flexible cable that is ideal for the most demanding live sound and performance applications. The cable is engineered to be durable and to provide protection against EMI, RFI, and static noise.
Premium Performance 3000 Series cables are made from 24 AWG OFC copper wire that's wrapped with PE insulation and a conductive PVC inner shield. A cotton-yarn inner layer helps reduce electrostatic and microphonic noise. 95% dual-spiral shielding makes the cable resistant to EMI and RFI noise. The Neutrik XX silver connectors provide a high level of connectivity, and all the solder connections are shrink-wrapped for protection.
The Rycote Super Softie Windshield for Shotgun Mic (5.9" Long, 0.7 to 0.9" Diameter) features an aerodynamic shape and surface structure made from the company's 3D-Tex material, which allows for attenuation of wind noise with acoustic transparency. It is suitable for a variety of sound recording applications including video, ENG, and more.
The 5.9" Super Softie has no rigid internal structure, thus it causes virtually no polar pattern distortion. Its robust design has been engineered for use in challenging environments, and if it becomes rain-soaked, it can be squeezed out and shaken dry quickly. If it becomes coated with dust, it can be rinsed quickly without affecting its performance.
