The NTG4 builds on the platform created by RØDE's award-winning NTG1 shotgun microphone. A broadcast-quality directional condenser microphone designed to provide premium audio recording in a versatile range of applications including on-camera and boom mounted.
The new Rode NTG4 Shotgun Microphone with Digital Switches is the next evolution of the popular NTG 1 and 2 series of condenser microphones from RODE. Designed for ENG, corporate filming, field recording, sound design, and a wide range of broadcast applications, the new NTG4 builds upon the success of the company's NTG1 and NTG2 microphones with a redisgned capsule to deliver professional broadcast quality sound and digital switching options for versatile field operation.
So, if you are a DSLR filmmakers, or operate a wide range of large sensor or smaller chip cameras, the NTG4 can be mounted to the camera mic holder (if present) or on rig via appropirate mic suspension kits for robust and natural sounding audio. Also designed to be mounted on a boom, or a handheld pistol grip, the NTG 4 is best for run and gun style filmmaking. The super-cardioid directional pickup pattern, combined with a frequency range of 20 to 20,000 Hz, a sensitivity of -32 dB re 1 V/Pa, a dynamic range of 119 dB, a signal to noise-ratio of 78 dB SPL helps get richer sound quality. The design of the microphone helps reject most sound from the side and the back as well.
Along the body of the microphone is a power button with LED indicator as well as three digital switching buttons with LED indicators.
