The VideoMic NTG is a broadcast-grade, feature-packed shotgun microphone optimized for on-camera use. It features the same revolutionary acoustic design as the NTG5, which delivers unmatched transparency and a natural, uncolored sound. Add to this an incredibly flat frequency response, highly directional super cardioid polar pattern, and very low self-noise, and what you have is a compact on-camera microphone that contends with the world’s best shotgun mics.
The VideoMic NTG is extremely flexible, with an array of tools and features to help you take on any recording situation. Digital switching gives you access to a high-pass filter, -20dB pad, high-frequency boost, and safety channel, plus there is a unique infinitely variable gain control to precisely tailor the output as you need. It is auto-sensing 3.5mm output detects what device you are connected to and switches to accommodate. There is also a handy new dB peak warning light, so you can always ensure your audio isn’t clipping.
The VideoMic NTG is so much more than just an on-camera mic. As well as pairing perfectly with DSLRs, compact cameras, and smartphones – either on-camera, as a boom mic, or on a pistol grip – it is also a fully-featured USB microphone that can be plugged into a computer, tablet, or smartphone. The 3.5mm jack doubles as a headphone output for seamless monitoring of audio while using the USB output.
