The XF400 UHD 4K60p Camcorder Kit with Tripod, Shotgun Mic, Windscreen & Case from B&H has been assembled to provide you with a 4K camera and accessories so you can start shooting right away. The XF400 is a UHD 4K camcorder with an integrated 15x optical zoom lens. It incorporates Dual-Pixel Autofocus, which can be found on Canon's high-end Cinema EOS lineup of cameras. It can capture in HD as well as UHD at up to 60 fps with four-channel audio recording, and the camera body integrates two 3-pin XLR connectors for external mics.
The Rode NTG2 condenser shotgun microphone features a supercardiod polar pickup pattern with off-axis signal rejection. The microphone accepts phantom as well as battery power. The included shockmount and windbuster help prevent mic noise from wind and sharp moves when the microphone is mounted on the camera, an XLR cable enables plugging in additional balanced microphones. The SD card allows you to record well over an hour of UHD 4K footage, and the included battery provides you with the power to keep shooting after the battery that comes with the camera is exhausted. The camera case holds your camera, while the included tripod enables smooth cinematic pans and tilts.

Rode NTG2 Shotgun Microphone
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.

Auray WSW-007MKII Custom Windbuster for Shotgun Microphones- 7" (18cm)
The Auray WSW Series Custom Windbusters provide dual layered wind protection and are designed to substantially reduce unwanted broadband wind noise and vocal pops with minimal high frequency loss.
This WSW-007MKII Custom Windbuster fits shotgun mics up to 7"(18cm) in length and is designed to be slipped over existing foam windscreens up to 5cm in thickness. The simulated fur outer layer works in tandem with the acoustic cloth inner lining to protect the microphone element from air bursts without muffling the sound.
When used on a shotgun mic, this windbuster is effective in minimizing wind noise and plosive sounds. It is most effective in light breeze to moderate breeze conditions (4-17 mph) and users can generally expect a 30dB to 40dB reduction in wind noise with modest dampening of high frequencies. For most applications, the modest high frequency dampening is a worthwhile exchange for the substantial wind noise reduction. In addition to dual layered wind protection, the WSW-007MKII helps prevent moisture and dirt from damaging your microphone.
The WSW-007MKII Custom Windbuster for Shotgun Microphones offers an extremely effective dual layered solution for wind protection.
