Can the shock mount fit a smaller mic such as an Audio Technica 4053B?
Asked by: Louis
I don’t have 4053B so I am not sure about that, but it’s quite tight for the mount and there is a bit of elasticity.

This question is directed to B&H staff - you must have heard about the RF interference problem with this mic? There is a YT video about it. I want to purchase but am wondering if Rode has solved the problem or it's just a small number of mics? No one has stated if it's a part problem/xlr cable problem/shielding problem, etc. Anyone know the details?
Asked by: Tony
We have not heard of any customers experiencing problems with RF when using the NTG5. We reached out to Rode as well for more information and to find out whether they were aware of any issues with the NTG5 regarding RF or if they had seen the video you mentioned, which none of us were able to find. Rode has not had any reported problems with the NTG5 and if you have in fact purchased the NTG5 and are experiencing problems with RF, they do want to know about it and would like for you to contact them directly for assistance. Or the mic was purchased from B&H, please do let us know about it. It is certainly possible that a bad cable or a damaged input or circuitry on a camera, recorder or mixer can be the source of RF problems, but there should not be any issues that are created by the mic itself.

Could this be attached to a camera or camcorder?

Could this be attached to a camera or camcorder?
Asked by: David
I was curious about this myself. I already had a Rode Videomic NTG. This mic is slightly thinner than the Videomic NTG. But they have similar shock mounts. I was able to remove the shock mounts on the Videomic NTG and put the ones from the NTG 5 on it perfectly. but, I wouldn't be able to use my Videomic NTG. If I am only going to take one mic no problem. But I think I'll get the NTG 5 it's own mount.
