** Videopro Staff ** If you don’t want to be spending huge amounts on a microphone but still want to get a great quality unit, the Rode NTG-3 Shotgun Mic is definitely for you. At a lower price than similar models, the NTG-3 still manages to blow competitors out of the water, delivering huge precise clarity of sound. This compact directional mic delivers remarkable audio, both crystal clear and vibrant, ensuring that your sound will stand out in your next project. It has excellent sensitivity, more common to models costing over $1000 – able to handle levels from a mouse quiet -30dB to a peak-hour-traffic loud 130dB. Rode has also minimised the mic’s self noise, reducing the level to 13dB, making it 50% quieter than most shotgun models in the industry. Another impressive feature is the NTG-3’s ability to reject unwanted noise, especially the radio-frequency interference from mobile phones. This can be a huge benefit when working in documentaries, news and corporate settings. The NTG-3 is also incredibly lightweight, coming in at just over 160g, making it that much easier to carry with you in the field. Rode has invested in quality protection technologies for this mic. The NTG-3 has minimal risk of condensation with the included RF bias technology - reducing the chances of water droplets ruining your hardware or quality of sound in tougher conditions. Added protection is provided in the hardy case which comes with this model, giving you the maximum security for your mic in rough environments. Safe storage is also not an issue, with the weather resistant aluminium storage cylinder included with the NTG-3. So whether you’re using your mic in fog, mist, humidity or rain, the NTG-3 will always remain the quality item you first purchased. In terms of power, the NTG-3 is phantom-powered straight from your camcorder or field mixer via an XLR cable, saving the time and hassle involved in battery charging. The NTG-3 is definitely a sound investment, achieving way above its price point and delivering superb sound every time.
