RODE NTG-2
- Static shotgun for taking votes shooting

OVERALL OPINION

I have this microwave for three months, I use it mostly shooting and it does its taf but if it is not a thunderbolt of war!

Before this, I worked a lot with the Sennheiser ME66 and frankly, Rode did not blush, I find it even sounds a little less metal and less sensitive to noise pole.

For cons, the big negative is the operation with a battery instead of phantom power, it's pretty devastating, it seems that there is a wha-wha pedal into the mic!

Another point to watch is the finish: the screws on mine is the unfortunate tendency to steer themselves, not terrible when the microphone is at the end of a pole 3m!

Meanwhile, for the price (I got it for under 200 €) I have not found anything better, I recommend it to small budgets who want a shotgun mic right!

RODE NTG-2
Condenser microphone canon hypercardiode, prvu for taking his perch in the shooting.
It possde a compartment for a cell to self LR6 supplying phantom power supply to be connected in small camcorders that do not provide. It possde a low cut but I did not try prfre I play with a post-prod. For a gun is not super long and can crawl around without bumping into corners, it is a little less than thirty centimtres.
It is therefore very practical, prvu for the budget that have little way around also.
It is sold in a kit with pliers and a windscreen. No elastic suspension ...

OVERALL OPINION

I use it on a shoot with 3 DIFFERENT environments: forest, city and inside. We feel that this is not the best microclimate in the world, but it is trs trs good job and will be much closer to a decision of his career as an amateur-cam microphone jack. I think I'll give it one day. At the rponse do frquence the NTG2 is not a cad low, it is correct, prcis and not garish. It is really trs rjection directive but not deafening cts of either, far from l. Some of centimtre dtimbre card and a voice right away, but without much in the attnuer level either, it's enjoyable enough to keep a minimum of atmosphere into the outlet, which is not too intrusive. I did not test the importance of the rear lobe.
Trs a good choice for a more than adequate as an amateur, or a budget.
