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 NTG3 moisture-resistant 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 high-quality 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, phantom powering, and high sensitivity, the NTG3 mic is well suited for use with professional camcorders, portable audio recorders, and multitrack field recorders.
Rode NTG3 Moisture-Resistant Shotgun Microphone (Satin Nickel)
Capture broadcast-quality sound indoors or outside for your next indie film, TV shoot, or documentary project with the satin nickel Rode NTG3 moisture-resistant shotgun microphone. Professional-level features such as low-noise circuitry, upgraded immunity to radio-frequency interference, and minimal handling noise reduce the need to repair and restore audio in postproduction.
The NTG3's high sensitivity allows it to produce strong output levels without having to apply extreme gain at your mic preamp. Sonically, the NTG3 delivers consistently clear sound due in part to its gentle rise in high frequencies and its rumble-reducing attenuation of low bass frequencies. Its switch- and dial-free design lets you set up quickly and focus on the sound instead of fiddling with various mic settings. The solid brass housing is both durable and lightweight, and its anti-glare finish prevents reflections in the shot.
Designed to Withstand Adverse Environmental Conditions
The combination of the NTG3's 10" long body and supercardioid polar pattern yields focused on-axis directionality with maximum rejection behind the mic. Its low self-noise of 13 dBA and highly sensitive condenser element communicate detailed audio unburdened by the hiss that plagues many low-cost microphones.
Ideal for Boompole Mounting
Windscreen Minimizes Wind Noise
Rycote InVision Video Hot Shoe Microphone Suspension
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.
