Rode NTG8 Overview

  • 1Description

The Rode NTG8 Precision Broadcast-Grade Long Shotgun Microphone picks up on the tradition of the NTG3 shotgun microphone with broadcast-quality performance, uniform directionality, and durable construction. The long NTG8 measures 22" (559mm) in length and features a true condenser, supercardioid, external RF biased element with a high resistance to humidity and adverse weather conditions.

Its extended length makes the NTG8 a viable choice for achieving high levels of intelligibility, detail, and low noise during wide camera shots, or while positioned further from the signal source. The NTG8's frequency response, sensitivity, and dynamic range make it ideal for use in audio for video, feature film, documentaries, live broadcasts, and much more. The microphone is phantom powered (externally), and includes a windscreen, shockmount, and aluminum storage cylinder.

    Rode NTG8 Reviews


    What's the difference between the NTG8 & the NTG3?
    Asked by: Ryan
    I have both microphones. My understanding is they have the same capsule. I use them outside with the Rycote Blimp system. The NTG8 picks up less wind sound( not distorted ) since it has a narrow pick up pattern as compared to the NTG3. There is more surface area with the NTG8 so the wind wants to move it physically. If you want to pick up a wider pickup pattern the NTG3 would do that. Both good microphones.
