Rode NTG2 overview

  • 1Description

The NTG2 Complete Shotgun Microphone HDSLR Kit is a B&H Kit designed to eliminate the guesswork in configuring a shotgun microphone system for the new breed of video enabled DSLR and other interchangeable lens cameras. It delivers quality and reliability while remaining cost effective.

The NTG2 from Rode NTG2 is the featured shotgun microphone in this kit, supported by a universal shockmount, universal hand grip, cabled boom pole, windscreen, a right angled XLR cable and a impedance matching transformer cable for use with the video HDSLR. Rounding out the kit is a neoprene bag made to carry a boompole.

The kit is an all-in-one solution for event videos, budget film work, budget broadcasting, Electronic News Gathering (ENG) and field production applications that use an HDSLR camera. It can be used either on-camera, or as part of a secondary recording system.

  • Rode NTG2 Battery or Phantom Powered Condenser Shotgun Microphone

    The Rode NTG2 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 frequency bandwidth, both of which attribute to the NTG2's broadcast sound quality.

    The supercardioid polar pattern and line-plus-gradient acoustic design 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 when using the NTG2 in noisy environments.

    The NTG2 is powered with an internal 1.5V AA battery or an external +48V phantom power source. The output is a standard 3-pin XLR male connector.

    The microphone features a rugged, all metal, lightweight enclosure that is ideal for camera mounting, yet durable enough to withstand the rigors of heavy road use. The Rode NTG2 is packaged with a microphone stand mount and windscreen.

    Battery Or Phantom Powered
    The Rode NTG2 can be powered with an internal 1.5V AA battery or external +48V phantom power source.
    Supercardioid Polar Pattern
    The supercardioid polar pattern and line-gradient acoustic principle allow for a narrow pick up pattern at the front of the capsule while minimizing noise at the off-axis sections.
    Lightweight Durable Construction
    The NTG2 features a lightweight metal housing that is ideal for camera mounting.
    Low Handling Noise
    Low-noise output electronics provide high signal-to-noise ratio. The NTG2 is designed to also reduce noise caused by handling, rigid mounting hardware, loose cabling, etc.

  • 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.

Rode NTG2 reviews

NTG2 Complete Shotgun Microphone HDSLR Kit is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Some minor peccadilloes, but overall a good bargin The NTG2 is a great mic for the price, though it does lean a little bit on the low end for my liking. That being said, I have no real complaints about it. It just works well, which is all I could ask. The rest of the kit is pretty standard. The dead cat works well and I haven't noticed any detectable amount of quality loss when using it, the cables are all good. The mount is nice and does it's job. My only problem with this kit was the Auray boom pole. The one that arrived had a broken connector in the handle, causing the cord to coil up inside. My replacement came quickly, but I noticed that when the pole is completely extended there, the coiled cord rattled LOUDLY against the inside. I could see this being a big issue when I need full extension, though that hasn't had to happen yet. Over all, I am happy with the bundle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bundle Everything you need to get started. Great Kit, easy to use.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from FAILED AFTER LIMITED USE I OWNED THIS MIC FOR A FEW YEARS I MAY HAVE USE IT LIKE LESS THAN 30 TIMES DURING THOSE YEARS ONE DAY I SHOW UP AT A WEDDING AND BOOM NO SOUND , I CHECK THE CABLE LATER WHEN I GOT HOME , CABLE WAS FINE AND THE MIC WAS GONE FOR GOOD IT WORKED FINE WHEN IT WAS WORKING, VERY GOOD SOUND, BUT FOR NO REASON IT JUST FAILED WITH LESS THAN THAT USESAGE
Date published: 2017-11-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Audio at Great Price This is my first Rode mic (aside from the videomic) and I'm really happy with it so far. I'm using it in conjunction with the Tascam DR-40 for low-budget feature films. I have no complaints so far! Clear audio, low impedance. I'll be stepping up to NTG3 soon, but this is a great mic for the money.
