Can I use this mic for recording birds, rain and other nature sounds?
Asked by: Rama Chandra Se
This is a directional condenser microphone. It is sensitive to picking up many different things if you are close enough to the sound source by a few feet.

Will this work well for picking up actors' lines for a live theatre event?
Asked by: Jeffrey
I agree with the previous comment from Matt. Highly directional. Certainly better than an in-camera mic though.

what is the difference between this and the rde videomic pro
Asked by: Nachiketh
The Rode VideoMic Pro is designed as a compact camera mountable solution. Generally used with DSLR or smaller camcorders. Both offer great sound quality, however since directionality of the pickup is related to the length of the mic tube, the NTG-2 offers a more narrow pickup and more effective at rejecting surrounding ambience.

Will this work with an IPhone 12? If so, will I need accessories: which one(s)?
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.
