The RØDE NTG2 is a lightweight condenser shotgun microphone, designed for professional applications within the film, video, television and production industries.
Its full frequency response, low noise and audio transparency make it an ideal film, video, and voice over microphone, while its low weight (161gm/5.7oz without battery) makes it an ideal boom microphone.
In addition to the native 20Hz-20kHz frequency response a selectable high-pass filter at 80Hz is available, which will prevent low end noise such as air conditioners and traffic from being recorded.
The NTG2 operates either from a AA (1.5V) battery or P48 phantom power which can be supplied by professional cameras, audio recorders and power supplies. The battery power option makes the NTG2 ideal for scenarios where the camera does not supply phantom power such as DSLR video.
The WSVM windshield is supplied to minimise light wind noise and plosives during recording. The optional 'DeadCat' furry is recommended for outdoor applications.
The RØDE NTG2 shotgun microphone is designed and made in Australia, and covered by RØDE Microphones' industry leading 10 year warranty.

Well, I can say that I don't regret the purchase. I have other rode mics which are all excellent value for money and quiet. This mic is *brilliantly* directional and sounds good up to a couple of feet away from the unit. It is also very very quiet when using the AA power, so I always use the on-board power (a switch would have been nice rode!) and I may get some kind of grip for it to reduce on board handling noise (all mics of this type suffer from that). The unit just feels very solid and well made. The xlr pops in with a really strong click and the screw tube for the battery is very good - although I wouldn't like to keep screwing and unscrewing that part of the assembly, it requires a gentle touch - and given that you wouldn't want to leave the battery in when not in use, it's the weakest part of the equation.
That aside, this is extremely good value for money, a nice punchy sound - quite warm, perhaps a bit of EQ after, but then again, all my mics need my personal preference EQ. I think it's the best mic on the market under £400.
The mic has a bit of pick up from behind which can make it bad for indoors as it picks up some reflection, it's still acceptable and many other mics have this lobe effect so not a huge deal but something to think about. This mic has a very smooth sound without too much treble which I have found to be the case with the Audio Technica in the same price range. The only other mic I have heard which beats this one is the Sennheiser MKE600 which is only about £40 more. The Sennheiser has a power switch whereas the Rode NTG2 does not meaning to power it off you have to take it out of the mount/blimp you are using twist off the casing and take out the battery which is a bit annoying but I live with it. The Sennheiser has a low cut switch which the NTG2 does not and better overall sound quality. One thing I found with it though was it seemed to pick up interference worse than the NTG2 but I didn't test this theory, just experienced less overall using the sennheiser.
The NTG2 is pretty much the only mic to buy around this price range that I really trust, go a bit more and get the Sennheiser if you can but the Rode is very nice and gives professional sounding results if you know what you are doing. The Audio Technica's seem to have too much sibilance and I would be worried about having to correct it all in the edit.

If your thinking about the video mic pro this would be a better option for professional filmmaking (in my opinion)

Its good for film... Obviously if you are looking for something to voice over with you'd go for a condenser mic, but if you are a film maker with a low budget, DON'T buy this... Read morePublished 13 months ago by Whisky
