Product description

The VideoMic NTG is a broadcast-grade, feature-packed shotgun microphone optimised for on-camera use. It features the same revolutionary acoustic design as the NTG5 broadcast shotgun microphone, which delivers unmatched transparency and a natural, uncoloured sound. Add to this an incredibly flat frequency response, highly directional supercardioid polar pattern, and very low self-noise, and what you have is a compact on-camera microphone that contends with the world’s best shotgun mics. As well as sounding outstanding, the VideoMic NTG is extremely flexible, with an array of tools and features to help you take on any recording situation. Digital switching gives you access to a high-pass filter, -20dB pad, high frequency boost, and safety channel, plus there is a unique infinitely variable gain control that allows you to precisely tailor the output as you need. Its auto-sensing 3. 5mm output detects what device you are connected to (camera or mobile) and switches to accommodate – no more messing around with adaptor cables! There is also a handy new dB peak warning light, so you can always ensure your audio isn’t clipping. The VideoMic NTG is so much more than just an on-camera mic. As well as pairing perfectly with DSLRs, compact cameras, and smartphones – either on-camera, as a boom mic, or on a pistol grip – it is also a fully-featured USB microphone that can be plugged into a computer, tablet, or smartphone. On top of this, the 3. 5mm jack doubles as a headphone output for seamless monitoring of audio while using the USB output.

3.0 out of 5 stars Anschlussbuchse schlecht verarbeitet
Reviewed in Germany on June 12, 2020
Das Mikrofon ist an sich von der Funktion und der Tonqualität super.
ABER: Es darf bloss nicht runterfallen und dann auch noch auf den Klinkenstecker! Nachdem jetzt die 240,- ein Totalschaden waren, hab ich das Ding mal auseinandergenommen. Die 3,5mm Klinkenbuchse ist gerade mal mit 6 Print-Lötstellen auf der Platine! Also mechanische Belastbarkeit = NULL. Es hat sich herausgestellt, dass die Buchse komplett abgerissen war und das gerade mal bei einm Sturz aus ca. 1m Höhe. Zugegebenermaßen unglückliche Stelle, aber sowas sollte es aushalten, zumal es sich auch noch um ein Mobilgerät handelt.
Ich würde mir wünschen, dass Buchsen fest mit dem Gehäuse verbunden sind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great VideoMic NTG
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on September 15, 2020
I have been using this Mic for about one month. I am impressed with the quality, I have used it indoors and outdoors, and the way it can handle the noise of the environment is excellent. I made a video where I thought the audio wasn't right because I was close to the train station and every few seconds a train passes; when I checked the footage I could hear the voice correctly and clear, the train too of course, but not as noisy as I thought. Other places where I have used the Mic is in my studio and at the church, and it is good too, not too much echo. The battery is durable, and it charges quick.

The only thing I had problems at the beginning was when the camera turns off the Mic goes off a few seconds later, once it doesn't detect power, that is great to save battery. However, when the camera goes off, and you turn it on straight away without waiting for the Mic to go off, the Mic won't turn on, make sure and be aware when you turn back on your camera the Mic is ON before press record.

For everything else I am really happy with this RODE VideoMic NTG; it is worth the investment for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Versatile Option
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on February 7, 2021
As you may have check beforehand in Youtube (or probably not), this maybe the only mic you will ever need.

In term of simplicity and versatility, I don't think you will find anything like it. Yes, Deity may have something quite similar in construction, perhaps almost on par in term of sound quality, but no...the RODE Videomic NTG have something thats not many other mini shotgun mic have...and thats the ability to connect directly via USB as a desktop microphone. Straight out of the box! No need to get audio interface, no need to find an XLR cable, no need to fuss about settings or whatever, just plug it in and it run just like that. In fact, you can connect this thing to any kind of devices you have (not your rice cooker or vacuum cleaner of course). You can connect it directly to your smartphone, you can connect it directly to your portable recorder. And the good news is, it still sounds fantastic. You need a mic with XLR output? I am pretty sure you can connect it via adapter.

There are a lot feature to mention about it but I think the most important feature is that it will automatically turned ON and ready for recording when you connect it to a device/camera.

The build is all metal, perhaps aluminum, but it doesn't make it prone to audio interference, and robust enough to handle tough job. Came with Rycote shock mount which is looking nice and perhaps the best shock mount in the market.

I think this is the best sounding and overall versatility Vlog mic, and it doesn't sound bad at all for interviews, podcast or voice over work, at a relatively affordable price (I bought mine at a good bargain of £154). Definitely, highly recommended.
