Customize your tone and capture quality sound indoors or outside for your next indie film, TV shoot, or documentary project with the Rode NTG4 phantom-powered shotgun microphone. Specialized features such as low-noise circuitry, digitally switchable pad and frequency settings, and minimal handling noise reduce the need to repair and restore audio in post production.

The NTG4's elevated sensitivity allows it to produce strong output levels without having to apply extreme gain at your mic preamp. Sonically, the NTG4 delivers warm sound due in part to its gentle dip in high frequencies and its rumble-reducing selectable low-cut filter. A switchable treble boost is on hand for situations where additional clarity is needed.

Quality Sound Capture

The combination of the NTG4's 8.9" long body and supercardioid polar pattern yields focused front-facing directionality and enhanced attenuation of sound entering from the sides. Its low self-noise of 16 dBA and sensitive condenser element communicate detailed audio unburdened by the hiss that plagues many low-cost microphones. Plus, its balanced output allows longer cable runs than most camera-mount shotgun microphones.

Phantom Powered

Thanks to its 3-pin XLR output and compliance with 12, 24, or 48 VDC phantom power, the NTG4 is compatible with a variety of handheld audio recorders, field recorders, and mixer adapters as well as built-in preamps on many camcorders and cinema cameras.

Customizable Tone via Digital Switching

Digital switching not only allows for intuitive access to the NTG4's settings, but it also retains their states when the mic is switched off. Activate the 75 Hz low-cut filter to reduce low-frequency noise from common sources such as air conditioners and traffic. Use the +6 dB treble boost for enhanced clarity and intelligibility (best for environments with minimal high-frequency ambient noise). When loud sound sources threaten to distort your recording, switch on the -10 dB pad to attenuate the input level.

Ideal for Boompole Mounting

The lightweight, metal-bodied NTG4 includes a mic clip for easy placement on a mic stand or boompole. Alternatively, mount the NTG4 in the Rode SM4-R shockmount or Rode PG2-R pistol grip (both available separately) to impede the transfer of vibrations in boompole or handheld applications.

Windscreen Minimizes Wind Noise

The NTG4 has a foam windscreen to reduce unwanted wind noise from breezes, fans, heaters, and air conditioners. For maximum reduction of handling noise and wind noise in indoor or outdoor environments, consider the Rode Blimp furry windshield and shockmount suspension system (available separately).

I have a Panasonic AG-UX180 professional ...

I have a Panasonic AG-UX180 professional camcorder. It has XLR input. I use this camera to record RC Airplane flight. Even though shotgun mics are designed for close-up audio, will this shotgun also work for distance airplane sound? If not, please recommend something in a similar price range that would work better. THANKS!
Asked by: Michael
You would be better off with a longer shotgun mic for recording anything at a distance. The narrower audio spectrum highly increases the directional capability, therefore, decreasing unwanted peripheral sounds. In the low price range, you could consider the Audio Technica AT8015 US$299.00.

question

Which is the best option between the 3? NTG2, NTG4 or Sennheiser MKE 600
Asked by: Robert J.
Having owned the NTG2, NTG4+, and used the NTG3 quite a bit, I can tell you they are very different microphones. If you can afford the NTG3 it will give you the most sensitivity. Too much at times. The NTG2 is inexpensive and can hold a AA battery for phantom power, but has no off switch. This is why I purchased the NTG4+. The internal battery lasts a full day and can be turned off when not in use. I like Sennheiser, but have not owned a shotgun from them, so can not offer an honest opinion.

question

Can a AA battery be put inside the Rode NTG4?
Asked by: Elani
The NTG4 (no +) is only phantom powered. In theory the mic could be powered via a AA battery operated source like a Tascam or Zoom recorder for instance but the mic does NOT take batteries whatsoever. I own an NTG4+ and it is my favorite mic. It is super versatile and the rechargeable battery inside lasts forever.
