The package includes a windscreen, mic clip, and custom case.

Can I plug this into a 3.5mm mini input on my DSLR and camcorder with a Kopul LMT-100 adapter on the end?. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/885062-REG/kopul_lmt_100_lo_to_hi_impedance.html
Asked by: Aaron
This mic can not be directly plugged into the 3.5mm input of a camera since they require 48v to operate. If you did want to connect this to a camera, you would a mixer with an xlr input and phantom power such as this BH #SASRPAX1.

Why do you need a match pair?

Why do you need a match pair?
Asked by: tom
Hello Tom, A matched pair of microphones keeps them as accurate as possible for stereo recording techniques. If they are different, then the stereo image could potentially change. If you're recording in stereo, we highly recommend the matched pair.

question

Can I use the Rode NT5 (matched pair) for choir recording? Thank you.
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, that is what I am using them for. They sound great even from a distance of 20 feet. This is quite remarkable considering our choir does not face the microphones, but rather face each other. Our choir is located in the back of the church in a balcony. I mounted them on the side pillars and angled them towards the choir.
