NTG2 Indoor Vlogger Kit with Broadcast Arm & XLR Cable Overview

Bundled together by B&H for your convenience, the Rode NTG2 Indoor Vlogger Kit provides tools useful for vlogging or podcasting indoors. In total, you get a Rode NTG2 Shotgun microphone and a two-section broadcast arm with an included XLR cable.

Set the microphone up in the broadcast arm, which clamps easily onto your desk. An XLR cable is threaded through the broadcast arm; use this XLR cable with the microphone and an audio interface or audio recorder (the interface or the audio recorder are available separately).

The microphone delivers pro-quality sound of the sort often used in broadcast radio or podcasting pieces. If you're podcasting, speak into the microphone at around a fist's distance from the capsule. For vlogging, set the mic just out of the frame of the shot, and you'll get a relatively clear, clean, and present tone, especially if you've applied a modicum of room treatment to your environment.

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.

Quality Sound Capture

The combination of the NTG2's 11" 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 18 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.

Battery or Phantom Powered

Thanks to its 3-pin XLR output and operability with 48V phantom power or a single AA battery, the NTG2 is compatible with a variety of handheld audio recorders, field recorders, and mixer adapters as well as built-in preamps on cameras and camcorders.

Ideal for Boompole Mounting

The NTG2 includes a mic clip for easy placement on a mic stand or boompole. Alternatively, mount the NTG2 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 NTG2 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).

Auray BAI-2X Two-Section Broadcast Arm with Internal Springs and Integrated XLR Cable

The Auray BAI-2X is a two-section broadcast arm with internal springs and an integrated XLR cable. This versatile and sturdy broadcast arm is great for studio as well as home use. It's ideal for broadcast, voiceover, and podcasts.

The BAI-2X broadcast arm is designed with internal springs that provide a clean and sleek look. The internal balance springs are precision engineered to support and hold in place microphones of up to 5 lb / 2.27kg. The design also minimizes handling noise when re-positioning the arm. The broadcast arm features a standard 5/8"-27 microphone stud mount that is compatible with most shockmounts and microphone clips. The angle of the microphone stud mount can be adjusted and secured with the locking knob, and the angle is maintained when re-positioning the arm. This eliminates the need to readjust it every time the arm is moved. With an extension of up to 40 inches, and the ability to rotate the arm 360°, the BAI-2X allows for precise microphone placement.

The BAI-2X also features a heavy-duty combo mount that consists of a sturdy C-clamp and a heavy-metal desktop mount. The C-clamp is capable of fastening onto desktops up to 2.3" thick. The C-clamp's slim design minimizes the clearance needed to mount it between a desk and wall. The desktop mount detaches from the C-clamp and provides the option of permanent installation to a desktop with the mounting screws (included). A 14" riser is included for adding height to the broadcast arm in order to extend over computer or studio monitors.

It can...but you will need a female XLR to 3.5mm cable, and then 3.5mm TRRS to lightning adapter. I’m sure that Gotham Sound might be able to make a custom cable for that.

Asked by: Steve
This uses an XLR output, so you could potentially use it, but you would need a device to give you an XLR in for iOS. I'm not certain of which device would do that, but you would want to be sure it gave you mic sensitivity controls or you will likely not be happy with results. Your best option for this in a iOS work flow is to use this with an external recorder/mixer and film with dual system sound. Using this with something like a small Tascam or Zoom handy recorder that gives you a 3.5mm (headphone style) output to camera with a lightning to 3.5mm input on the phone might be the best option to give you embedded audio on the iPhone track.

Can this be connected directly into my Sony 7RII?
Asked by: Beate
Should be able to. The mic is battery powered and comes with an XLR to 3.5mm cable. I always use it with an external recorder but you shouldn’t have any issues going direct. Keep in mind it’s a relatively directional microphone so if you’re moving the camera around the field of pickup will change.

question

Can you use the NTG2 as a handheld microphone (e.g. for interviews)?
Asked by: Pierre R.
You can though Id recommend against it as it is very sensitive and will likely pick up handling noise if hand-held. It is best used on a shockmount or other stable mounting platform. Id recommend looking for omnidirectional or lav mics for interviews! Hope this helps!
