Designed for use on the latest cameras, the new VideoMic NTG shotgun microphone brings broadcast-quality sound to a compact, feature-packed shotgun microphone. Features include a revolutionary acoustic design and highly directional supercardioid polar pattern with a very flat frequency response plus a USB and headphone output. Users are able to precisely adjust the mic’s output, from mic level to line level to headphone level, while the 3.5mm output automatically switches between TRS and TRRS to accommodate both cameras (TRS) and mobile devices (TRRS). Digital switching controls include a high-pass filter, 20dB pad, high frequency boost and safety channel, while a dB peak warning light ensures distortion-free audio. The built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides 30+ hours of recording and can be charged via USB-C in just two hours.
The VideoMic NTG is made from aerospace-grade aluminium and weighs just 94 grams. It is shipping now at an MSRP of USD$249. Click here for more information.
