Rode NTG5 Overview
This Rode NTG5 Shotgun Microphone Kit from B&H allows you to boom the mic with a lightweight K-Tek KE-89CC aluminum boompole, great for capturing high-quality audio when shooting videos, films, or documentaries.
The kit includes a lightweight NTG5 shotgun mic with custom-designed shockmount and furry windshield for vibration and wind protection. The boompole expands from 2′ 5″ to 7′ 6″ and features an internal XLR cable.
Rode NTG5 Moisture-Resistant Short Shotgun Microphone
Shorter and lighter than the NTG3 and with a flatter bass response, the Rode NTG5 moisture-resistant shotgun microphone lets you capture natural, uncolored sound indoors or outside for your next indie film, TV shoot, or documentary project without weighing down your rig.
Professional-level features such as ultralow-noise circuitry, a smooth off-axis response, and a tightly controlled low end make it ideal for a range of location recording scenarios. Plus, it includes a furry windshield and a pistol grip shockmount that can be attached to a boompole for increased versatility.
The NTG5’s extremely high sensitivity allows it to produce robust output levels without having to apply extreme gain at your mic preamp. Sonically, the NTG5 delivers acoustic transparency due to its pioneering circular acoustic ports, gentle rise in high frequencies, and rumble-reducing attenuation of low bass frequencies. Its switch- and dial-free design lets you set up quickly and focus on the sound instead of fiddling with various mic settings. RF-bias technology and conformal coating ensure reliable performance even in severe conditions.
