Rugged Shotgun Condenser with Exceptional Directionality!

The Rode NTG-8 shotgun condenser microphone gives you uncompromising performance in even the toughest conditions. It's also incredibly directional, even at low frequencies - that means you're sure to capture the audio you need, without off-axis low-frequency sounds clouding your recording. The NTG-8 is very moisture-resistant, and its low handling noise and self-noise properties make it great for film and broadcast applications in the field. It's a highly sensitive mic with "you are there" sound quality and excellent RF interference rejection. A water-resistant aluminum storage cylinder, wind shield, pouch, and mic clip are included with the Rode NTG-8 shotgun condenser microphone.

Rode NTG-8 Condenser Shotgun Microphone at a Glance:
  • Built for any environment
  • Light weight, low-noise
  • Excellent directionality, even at low frequencies
Built for any environment

Using a technology known as RF-bias the Rode NTG-8 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-8 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-8 combines very low weight (less than 1 lbs.), a durable anti-glare finish and incredibly low handling and self-noise (13dBA) to become RODE's premier A/V microphone.

Excellent directionality, even at low frequencies

Unintended off-axis sounds can ruin an otherwise great recording, and low frequencies are the most likely to intrude (because they travel farther than high frequencies with the same energy). The Rode NTG-8 shotgun mic is exceptionally directional, even at low frequencies. That means when you're focusing on a sound source, you're less likely to pick up rumble from the highway, wind, ocean, or whatever.

Rode NTG-8 Shotgun Condenser Microphone Features:
  • Designed to withstand adverse environmental conditions
  • Very low self-noise
  • Very directional, even with low frequencies
  • Extremely low handling noise
  • High level of immunity to radio frequency interference
  • True condenser (external RF biased)
  • High sensitivity
  • Superior broadcast sound quality
  • Designed and manufactured in Australia
  • Water resistant aluminium storage cylinder, wind shield, zip pouch, and microphone clip included
  • Requires +48V phantom power
The Rode NTG-8 is built for stellar performance in all conditions!
