Rode NTG3 Moisture-Resistant Shotgun Microphone (Satin Nickel)

Capture broadcast-quality sound indoors or outside for your next indie film, TV shoot, or documentary project with the satin nickel Rode NTG3 moisture-resistant shotgun microphone. Professional-level features such as low-noise circuitry, upgraded immunity to radio-frequency interference, and minimal handling noise reduce the need to repair and restore audio in postproduction.

The NTG3's high sensitivity allows it to produce strong output levels without having to apply extreme gain at your mic preamp. Sonically, the NTG3 delivers consistently clear sound due in part to its gentle rise in high frequencies and its rumble-reducing attenuation of low bass frequencies. Its switch- and dial-free design lets you set up quickly and focus on the sound instead of fiddling with various mic settings. The solid brass housing is both durable and lightweight, and its anti-glare finish prevents reflections in the shot.

Designed to Withstand Adverse Environmental Conditions

When your work takes you outdoors, you're bound to encounter humidity and condensation, which can cause many mics to fail. The NTG3's RF bias technology makes it almost completely resistant to moisture, allowing you to reliably capture high-quality audio in normal and adverse environmental conditions. It also includes a weatherproof aluminum storage cylinder for maximum protection during travel.

Broadcast-Quality Sound

The NTG3 was engineered for broadcast-quality sound, enhanced immunity to RF (radio frequency) interference, and low handling noise. Plus, its balanced output allows longer cable runs than most camera-mount shotgun microphones.

The combination of the NTG3's 10" long body and supercardioid polar pattern yields focused on-axis directionality with maximum rejection behind the mic. Its low self-noise of 13 dBA and highly sensitive condenser element communicate detailed audio unburdened by the hiss that plagues many low-cost microphones.

Phantom Powered

Thanks to its 3-pin XLR output and compliance with 44 to 52 VDC phantom power, the NTG3 is compatible with a variety of handheld audio recorders, field recorders, and mixer adapters, as well as built-in preamps on many camcorders and cinema cameras.

Ideal for Boompole Mounting

The NTG3 includes a mic clip for easy placement on a mic stand or boompole. Alternatively, mount the NTG3 in the Rode SMR-4 shockmount (available separately) to impede the transfer of vibrations between your boompole and the mic.

Windscreen Minimizes Wind Noise

The NTG3 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).

Ty Ford Audio & Video Ty Ford's Audio Bootcamp Field Guide 4th Edition Paperback Book

Ty Ford's Audio Bootcamp Field Guide dispenses answers to thousands of online questions from videographers about how to capture better sound on video shoots, in the studio, and on location. Readers are initially surprised by how small the book is but find that there are no wasted words and that all of them make sense to the average human; no electronic formulas to memorize, no discussions about wavelengths, calculus, trigonometry, or physics required.

Boom, lav, and handheld mics are discussed. A section on mic patterns and their strengths and weaknesses help you choose which mic is best for a particular shot. The Mixer section explains why a mixer can make your audio sound better and how to connect everything to help you get better production sound rather than spending time in post trying to fix problem audio.

A Q&A chapter takes you through the thought processes required to make good decisions about how to get the best audio you can, regardless of the setup.

The Good Gear Guide is an up to date list of solid location audio gear. The Equipment Rental Guide is a list of qualified professional equipment rental houses in the US, in case you need to rent audio gear you don't have. Heavy-duty plastic covers insure the book will survive in a run bag. Spiral binding allows the book to remain open to the page you want without having to hold it.

The Anti-Panic Checklist on the back cover helps you through those anxious moments when you know something's wrong, but you're not sure where to look. In a companion online video tutorial, Ty Ford demonstrates the differences in ear-worn, lav, supercardioid, and shotgun mics. You hear what the mics sound like as they are being used with an ongoing narrative that explains what you're hearing and which mics work best in different situations.

Topics Covered

Microphones: Lavs, hypercardioids, shotguns
Application Notes: When to use each microphone and why
Mixers: Why a mixer? How to connect and calibrate
Good Gear List: Futureproof your audio with the best gear
Q&A, FAQ, and Index: Practical experience at your fingertips

Anti-Panic Audio Checklist

Auray Universal Microphone Pistol Grip

The Auray Universal Microphone Pistol Grip is a handheld grip that features an ergonomic cushioned handle. This grip is great in "run & gun" situations in which a boom pole would be cumbersome, and in video scenarios in which the cameraman is also responsible for audio recording. The grip can be held with one hand, as opposed to a boom pole which requires two. It also provides the option of being able to record audio from a different direction than the camera is pointing, an advantage over camera mounting the mic. Furthermore, having the mic mounted off the camera prevents it from picking up motor noise from the lens focusing.

In addition, the grip features standard 3/8" threads on both ends. This allows you to attach your shotgun mic (with shockmount) to one end of the grip and mount the other end to a boom pole. This gives you the flexibility of being able to quickly detach the pistol grip and the attached shotgun mic from the boom, an option that can come in handy for entering areas that are too small for a boom pole.

You would need a shockmount to hold the mic, that has a cold shoe on it. Here's an example: AUDUSM1. Please note, this mic requires phantom power to run. You will need an external mixer/ recorder with XLR inputs and phantom power to use the mic. Here's an example: B&H # TADR60DMKII.

Asked by: Ryan
The NTG3 requires 48 volt phantom power to operate. Since the Rode Wireless Go transmitter does not provide the required power, you will need to place a battery powered phantom power supply inbetween the mic and transmitter.

How does the NTG3 work as a handheld interview mic out on the field?
Asked by: Anonymous
The short answer here is, not typically. I say this because the NTG3 is a very directional, supercardioid microphone. What this means is, it is designed more for isolating at various distances and not so much for direct, close audio. If you do use this microphone in tight you can also hear variations in the volume and sound. Handling noise would also be an issue.

Hello Trey, unfortunately, you need 48v phantom power to operate the NTG3. It doesn't appear the G40 provides that. I recommend the Rode NTG2 or 4+ as they have power in the microphone.
