Rode NTG1 overview

  • 1Description

The Rode NTG1 is a condenser shotgun microphone designed for professional audio capturing in the field or indoors. With a history of manufacturing quality studio microphones, Rode has implemented low noise output electronics and wide bandwidth, both of which attribute to the NTG1's broadcast sound quality.

The super-cardioid polar pattern and line plus gradient acoustic principle effectively minimize audio and noise at the off-axis (sides) of the microphone, while the front of the capsule accurately reproduces incoming audio signal. The result is greater intelligibility and signal-to-noise ratio while using the NTG1 in noisy environments. The NTG1 is powered with an external +48 Volt phantom power source, the output is a standard 3-pin XLR male connector. The microphone features a rugged, all metal, light weight enclosure that is ideal for camera mounting yet durable enough to withstand the rigors of heavy road use. The Rode NTG1 is packaged with a microphone stand mount, an XLR cable and windscreen.

    Supercardioid Polar Pattern
    The supercardioid polar pattern and line-gradient design principle allow for a narrow pick up pattern at the front of the capsule while minimizing noise at the off-axis (side) sections.
    Lightweight Durable Construction
    The NTG1 features a lightweight metal housing that is ideal for camera mounting.
    Low Handling Noise
    Low-noise output electronics provides a high signal-to-noise ratio. The NTG1 is designed to also reduce noise caused by handling, rigid mounting hardware, loose cabling, etc.

  • Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR M to Angled XLR F Microphone Cable - 1.5' (0.45 m), Black

    The black Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR M to Angled XLR F Microphone Cable (1.5') is designed to be an extremely quiet and flexible cable that is ideal for the most demanding live sound and performance applications. The cable is engineered to be durable and to provide protection against EMI, RFI, and static noise.

    Premium Performance 3000 Series cables are made from 24 AWG OFC copper wire that's wrapped with PE insulation and a conductive PVC inner shield. A cotton-yarn inner layer helps reduce electrostatic and microphonic noise. 95% dual-spiral shielding makes the cable resistant to EMI and RFI noise. The Neutrik XX silver connectors provide a high level of connectivity, and all the solder connections are shrink-wrapped for protection.

    95% dual-spiral shielding offers protection from EMI and RFI noise.
    Twin-conductive PVC inner shielding provides 100% coverage of the core conductor. It helps keep the cable's signal from radiating and affecting nearby cables, and also helps prevent external EMI from penetrating to the cable's core.
    24 AWG oxygen-free stranded copper inner core provides the best possible conductivity.
    Cotton yarn reduces electrostatic and microphonic noise.
    All solder points shrink-wrapped for protection.
    Neutrik XX silver connectors offer high conductivity.
    Caged type contact and improved ground contact.

Rode NTG1 reviews

NTG1 Condenser Shotgun Microphone Kit is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good mic, great price. The NTG1 is a really nice little mic. In the price range, I dare say even compared to Mic's twice this price, the NTG-1 is the best. Like other Rode products, it's hot. Especially with this kit, it makes a great on-camera mic for run & gun stuff, picking up good quality sound even from 6-10 feet away. On a boom, it's even better. The tone is great, the sensitivity is great... it's definitely worth it for someone who wants a good phantom-powered mic without spending a fortune. Expertise: Professional Problems Encountered: The mount that comes with this kit may need tightening with a screw-driver (under the shoe mount) but that's all. Items I Recommend: Gitzo G-557C Boom pole

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Very Happy I am not new to the world of sound and video. I purchased this mic as a backup mic. It has moved to first place, I am purchasing a second one maybe the NTG-2 (maybe not-do I need battery power) I am using it in a Panasonic Ag-Af100 The sound I am getting with this mic is beating out sound sent to me from professional sound boards, In both tight room settings and video taping bands in a small to medium stage area. It gives me dual channels, which I can dial up as I wish on the camera. I also am impressed with the warranty and service from bhphoto, a bad cable and it took less than 45 seconds for them to commit to sending me a new one. yes 45 seconds and we were done. Thanks BhPhoto I will be back

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Making TV Better In a 'Short' Way Recently, I acquired a Sony PXW-X70 and needed to find a quality mic in a compact design and without breaking the bank. This camera would be primarily used for recording outings/trips that would end up on some Hunting/Fishing TV shows so I knew that I need to invest in a quality mic. In my initial research of compact shotgun style mics, I found a few that would fit within the maximum length requirement. I was leaning toward a shorter and less expensive mic from another manufactorer but then a filming partner of mine reminded me that good video is 90% audio. With my experience of filming, that hit home so I broke some piggy banks and vacuumed my cars out to find loose change and I purchased the Rode. In the bigger scheme of things, this is by no means an expensive mic and it is well worth the few extra dollars. After getting it delivered and performing the 'Fro Knows Sniff Test,' I put it on the PXW-x70 and started doing some simple audio checks to find it's sweet spot. After spending about an hour of speaking and setting changing I found that the NTG1 needed the 20db boost from he camera pre-amps with the gain at 80% (this should vary between cameras). I was hoping that the signal strength of the mic would be a little stronger but even at this higher gain setting the noise floor is still really low (approx. 40-38db). I also did a few similar tests with the Tascam DR-60Dmk2 and the gain settings were similar as well but the noise floor was a little lower (approx. 42-40db). Which made me feel better about this purchase because I now knew that I could use this mic along with the Tascam for recording interviews (scoop or boom position). I did notice in these tests that the optimal max distance from the speaking subject was about 2-2.5ft. Once you moved the mic further away the echoes in an untreated room would become more and more noticeable. The off-axis audio is noticeable but with a satisfactory fall-off that wasn't too quick/steep. This would bring me to point out that you have to pick the mic for JOB THAT YOU WANT IT TO DO THE MAJORITY OF THE TIME. If you do not want to hear much, if any, off-axis or echo audio then this IS NOT the mic for you and you should be looking at HYPERcardioid. This mic is very directional but the fall-off is a steady and constant pattern which is what I need this mic to do. Being that this mic would be recording nature sounds and at times from a great distance, I wanted to have some of the surrounding audio present with the primary source. The size and weight of this mic fits perfectly with the PXW-x70 (and cameras of similar size, Canon XA20/25). The camera package stays small and compact without loosing quality. When I reviewed the test audio the clarity was very impressive. The sub-100hz frequencies were very clean and not boomy. This was true of the high end of the frequency range and there didn't appear to be any hot spots of frequencies that needed to be cut a few db from the start. Very balanced and true reproduction of the audio source. After all, this is a Rode mic. I have not tested the mic with the low shelf (high-pass filter) turned on so I can't commit on how that feature performs. The XLR connection spacer is a nice bonus. I am currently using mine to keep the mic connection as tight as possible to prevent any unwanted clicking noise to be recorded when on the move. The Kopul (Neutrik) cable appears to be doing its job very well being that the optimal recording levels have a low noise floor. I have not yet used the shock mount yet but it does have a snug fit around the mic. If you are looking for a great mic to put on your compact professional camera then the NTG1 would be a good option. I have been very pleased with mine. Matt P.
