Rode NTG4 overview

  • 1Description

The Rode NTG4 Shotgun Microphone with Digital Switches is designed for ENG, filmmaking, field recording, sound design, and broadcast applications. The microphone builds upon the success of the company's NTG1 and NTG2 microphones with an updated capsule to deliver broadcast quality sound and digital switching options for versatile field operation.

Designed to be mounted on a boom, a handheld pistol grip, or atop a compact camera for run and gun style filmmaking, the microphone features a super-cardioid directional pickup pattern, a frequency range of 20 to 20,000 Hz, a sensitivity of -32 dB re 1 V/Pa, a dynamic range of 119 dB, a signal to noise-ratio of 78 dB SPL, and a maximum SPL of 135 dB from 48V, 24V, or12V phantom power (4.5 mA current draw).

Along the body of the microphone is a power button with LED indicator as well as three digital switching buttons with LED indicators.

The first button provides a -10 dB pad on the input of the microphone to allow the recording of loud sounds without clipping.

The middle button turns on a 75 Hz high pass filter which is useful for reducing low frequency and infrasonic rumble from HVAC systems indoors or street traffic outdoors from over-powering the recording.

The third button is a high frequency boost. The value of the high frequency boost is in restoring some of the high frequency content that is often lost when a blimp or furry windshield is placed over the microphone. An added benefit is that the high frequency boost switch can help improve the intelligibility of recorded speech, especially useful for filmmaking and broadcast applications.

The microphone comes with an RM5 microphone clip, a foam windshield and a carrying pouch.

    Rode NTG4 reviews

    NTG4 Shotgun Microphone with Digital Switches is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good mic but not Rode's best If this was the first Rode shotgun I had purchased I would have given it 5 stars. It has good rejection characteristics and is very present with a bit of a high-mid boost. Up to the task for sure. I am fortunate to also own an NTG-3 however. This puts the NTG-4 a notch down on the ladder. The 4 has a distinct self noise that would not have been a problem except I used it on a shoot alongside my 3. The 3 is simply dead quiet, transparent and a bit louder. This comes with a price...as expected. I will probably send the 4 back and pick up another 3.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would recommend this mike to anyone on a budget. As a newbie to location sound, I was looking for best value for my limited budget. At < $400, the NTG4 was a great purchase for me. I just used it for a location shoot where we had a nearby 55mph highway, low flying private airplanes, approach vector for passenger jets and neighbors who have tractors and guns to use. Takes that I would have sworn were irreparably compromised turned out fabulous with the NTG4. I was being cautious with the gain settings, so self-noise wasn't a real issue, but so far I'm loving this mike. I've seen the reviews comparing the NTG4 to the NTG3 and I agree that for someone with the budget and a discerning ear, the NTG3 is probably the better option. For someone like me, who is just starting out, you can't go wrong with the NTG4.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing microphone for the price I noticed one of the other reviews compared the microphone and gave it a lower rating because it didn't match the NTG3. This isn't even a fair comparison as the NTG3 is in a much higher price and performance bracket. In it's price range the NTG4 is a workhorse mic. The NTG3 is the next step up. I chose the NTG4 and not the NTG4+ because lithium batteries eventually wear out and I prefer to invest for longer term use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard to beatin its price range This is really a terrific microphone. Solidly built, good side rejection and a snap to use, it is my go-to shotgun for a lot of the film work I do. The price is excellent for the quality sound it delivers. And Rode stands by its gear. This is my second Rode shotgun and I expect I'll be using this well past the decade warranty.
