Designed to provide the basic accessories for shock-mounting a shotgun microphone atop a camera, this B&H Kit features the Rode NTG2 battery-/phantom-powered shotgun microphone, a shoe/pole shockmount, and a short XLR to 3.5mm cable for easy hookup to a camera's mic input.

The kit addresses the needs of videographers who prefer a flexible and cost-effective shotgun microphone that provides smooth, natural audio reproduction, switchable low-cut filtering, and low handling noise. With its XLR output and dual powering modes (phantom power or a single AA battery), the NTG2 mic is well suited for use with mirrorless cameras and DSLRs as well as professional camcorders, portable audio recorders, multitrack field recorders, and compact mixer adapters.

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 DUSM-1 Universal Shockmount for Camera Shoes and Boompoles

The Auray DUSM-1 Universal Shockmount features a four-point suspension to accommodate shotgun and other cylindrical microphones measuring 0.74-0.98" (19-25mm) in diameter. The shockmount is easily angled with its rubberized adjustment knob. There is a built-in shoe for camera mounting, and a 3/8"-16 thread connection at the base mounts the shockmount to boompoles and universal handgrips.

Kopul LMT100 - Low to High Impedance Matching Transformer (1.5')

The Kopul LMT100 cable simply enables a microphone or mic-level device to be input into a high-impedance 3.5mm mini input found on DSLRs, camcorders, and other devices. It is 1.5' long and has a 3-pin XLR female connector on one end and a standard 3.5mm mini plug on the other. It is designed for use with mono microphones.

Matches low-impedance XLR output to high-impedance 1/8" (3.5mm) audio input
Ideal for plugging professional XLR microphones into DSLRs, camcorders, and other devices with a 1/8˝ microphone input
For use with battery-powered and dynamic microphones
Designed for a mono source, but will split the signal to both channels of a stereo device

Asked by: Anonymous
Yeah it works well. There will still be some background noise but it's minimal. Just make sure to disable auto gain on the camera, or install magic lantern.
