RØDE Microphones has launched the NTG5, the latest addition to its range of shotgun microphones.
RØDE released its first shotgun mic, the NTG1, in 2005. This was soon followed by the NTG2 and the award-winning NTG3. The NTG5 is the next step in the range’s evolution – the culmination of RØDE’s 28 years of research and development of high-quality microphones for broadcast and film applications.
The NTG5 features an acoustic port design that provides high-quality progressive wave interference, lightweight construction (just 76g), and clear, broadcast-grade sound. The mic is short, only 203mm, which makes it easy to handle on set, especially when used on a boom pole.
It has a tailored frequency response and a low self-noise of 10dbA, making it ideal for location recording, professional filmmaking, and other critical recording situations.
Other significant features include a highly directional supercardioid polar pattern and a smooth off-axis response, and RF-bias technology and conformal coating for adverse weather conditions. It also comes with a complete location recording kit, including windshielf, pistol grip and other accessories.
The NTG5 will be revealed to the public for the first time at the Photo Plus Expo in New York City this week, Thursday to Saturday, at the B&H Booth, Hall 3B, Stall #451.
It is priced at USD $499 and is shipping now.
