Shotgun Mic For Film and Video from RODE

By now, we all know that when the multi-award winning RODE company puts its mind to creating a mic, it's going to be solid, rugged, great sounding, and a lot less expensive than microphones that are sonically equivalent. The NTG-1 represents RODE's genius for innovation in the field of designing microphones specifically for video applications.

The new RODE NTG-1 is a lightweight condenser shotgun microphone, which has been specifically designed for professional applications within the film, video, television, voice-over and ENG (Electronic News Gathering) industries. The NTG-1 provides an electronically balanced output stage and operates on 48V phantom power.

The NTG-1 offers wide bandwidth and a controlled polar response coupled with low-noise SMT electronics. The RODE NTG-1 is extremely lightweight making it ideal for mounting directly to video cameras or on boom poles. The NTG-1 comes complete with mount and windshield. The windscreen effectively supresses wind noise when recording outdoors in moderate conditions.

Optional accessories are available for more demanding applications.

  • Super Cardioid.
  • Frequency Range: 20Hz-20kHz selectable HPF @ 80Hz/12dB octave.
  • Maximum SPL: 139dB

Fantastic Mic !

I did my research before buying the Rode NTG-1 and I learned it would help eliminate excess noise. I live next to a busy street and I was looking for mic that wouldn't pick up the noise coming into my booth of which I'm in the process of upgrading. Anyway my other mic is great but to sensitive for my environment. The Rode NTG-1 has a Super Cardioid pattern which is very tight and to my surprise the noise level dramatically dropped in my recordings, however the quality of my recordings went up and my clients love it (which is what you want of course). If you are in a noisy area this is the mic you want. I HIGHLY Recommend the Rode NTG-1 and even if your not the quality of this mic is Awesome. For the money you can't go wrong plus you get a 10 year warranty for Free! I don't know of another company that offers that kind of warranty. Rode could charge a lot more for this mic and it would be worth it. In closing this is an EXCELLENT Mic.

Great mic for the price.

Very impressed with this shotgun condenser. I'm using it for voice capture on a new shred guitar instructional dvd I'm shooting right now. For the "tips" portions, I'm also using a Giant Squid Audio Lab Lav mic with equally awesome results. I have less than $300 wrapped up in both mic's, & the audio clarity is nothing short of professional. I'm very happy with this Rode mic & it has great off axis sound rejection. I highly recommend it for anyone recording pro audio for video.

Worth the money

I purchased 4 of these mics to use in a house of worship and I was not disappointed. The clarity of these units are great, doesn't have a muddy floor noise. I called Rode before the purchase as to which model I needed and this is the they recommended.

On-Camera Shotgun

An ideal mic for ENG work. Light weight and good pick-up. Low-noise. Sturdy construction. Could spend a lot more...but why? Does the job very well!
