Supercardioid Condenser Microphone
NTG-3 is a short shotgun microphone with a high sensitivity and supercardioid polar pattern.
The mic uses Rode’s RF Bias technology, making it resistant to temperature and humidity changes.
The NTG-3 has a wider, more forgiving polar pattern than other shotgun microphones, making it easier for booming.
The mic has a slightly wider pick-up pattern than the [Sennheiser] 416 with a gentler transition to off-axis rejection. This design choice makes two-shots and moving characters easier to cover, but also means that in noisy locations you may pick up some unexpected and unwanted sound.
The NTG-3 ships with a protective aluminum tube case, RM5 hard mount, foam windscreen, and a leather storage pouch.
The RØDE NTG-3 is also known as: NTG3.
