A Stellar Shotgun Mic Built to Handle Any Environment!The Rode NTG-3 shotgun condenser microphone gives you uncompromising performance in even the toughest of conditions, at a very friendly price! The NTG-3 is very moisture-resistant, and its low handling noise and self-noise properties make it great for film and broadcast applications in the field. This highly sensitive mic provides "you are there" sound quality and ultra-reliable performance while rejecting RF interference successfully. A water-resistant aluminum storage cylinder, wind shield, pouch, and mic clip are included with the Rode NTG-3.
Rode NTG-3 Condenser Shotgun Microphone at a Glance:
Built for any environment
Using a technology known as RF-bias the Rode NTG-3 is almost completely resistant to moisture, making it ideal for recording in any demanding environments where condensation is an issue. Be it in a tropical rainforest, arid desert or sub-zero snowstorm, the NTG-3 can be relied on to faithfully record audio where traditional condenser microphones would fail.
Light weight, low-noise
In addition to its robust properties the NTG-3 combines very low weight (163g), a durable anti-glare finish and incredibly low handling and self-noise (13dBA) to become RODE's premier A/V microphone.
When not in use the NTG-3 can be stored away in the included weather resistant aluminium storage cylinder, providing additional protection when travelling and storing the microphone.

GREAT VOICEOVER MIC!
by Mike Miller from Birmingham, ALWhile this microphone is marketed more towards the film and video industry, it makes an AMAZING voiceover mic. One might wonder why you'd want a shotgun mic for voiceover work as opposed to something ... read more [+]like the NT1a or a larger condenser microphone, but shotgun mics just have a way of "cutting through the mix" and placing your vocals right up front. It's often referred to as the "poor mans" Sennheiser MKH-416 which is considered the "Hollywood Mic" and is used on almost ALL of the movie trailers you here. That may be a fair comparison, but for my money I can't tell a $400 difference in the two mics. The mic sounds great without any EQ or compression (you will need phantom power on your pre-amp) but run this thing into an Aphex 230 Master Voice Channel (discontinued) and it's AMAZING! close [-]

Industry standard performance... half the price!
by Alex from Knoxville, TNWith the NTG-3, Rode has done something spectacular: made a formidable opponent to the Sennheiser 416 at about half the price! The folks down in Australia have proven their talent in mic design with ... read more [+]gems like the NT1-A, and this mic is no exception.

Music Background: Production and post audio for TV and film
I ran for years with a 416 (one of the industry standards for short shotguns) and, while it is still a great shotgun, it has been out of reach for many folks because of the price yet unmatched in performance by anything under $1000.
The NTG-3 hit the mark for performance. It's a very close match to the 416, and has both amazing sound and off-axis rejection. For indie film makers, sound engineers on a tight budget, or anyone else that wants a great short shotgun mic for on-came dialog (or anything else), the NTG-3 is definitely one to consider heavily.
Nice, warm, rich sound. Hot output. And the RF-bias design is invaluable. This mic will be your best friend in the field, and even in the VO booth.
The packaging is also note-worthy, as the mic comes with the standard zippered pouch, but also encased snugly in a padded aluminum tube for ultimate protection in storage/transport. close [-]
