Eats Batteries

27 January 2015
  • Excerpt: I've only had this thing a little while and I can't figure out why yet, but this thing absolutely eats batteries. The sound quality is great but we went through 16 batteries in 2 hours of videos using this with an H4N.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Lightweight, Versatile

Low volume with Zoom H4N via xlr Input

  • Excerpt: I buy this NTG-2 mic and use it with the Zoom H4N. For some reason, the output volume when using xlr input is quite a bit lower than the 3.5 mm input (i.e. low-impedance XLR output to high-impedance 1/8") Using Phantom power does help to increase the output volume.
  • Cons: Poor Sound Quality

Tape needed to avoid noise

1 July 2012
  • Excerpt: Decent shotgun mic for the price. However, you'll need to use tape (gaffer / electrical) to eliminate the noise at 3 place : - High pass filter switch needs to be covered - Battery compartment - XLR connexion
  • Pros: Cheap, Compact, Easy To Use, Versatile
  • Cons: Noise

Not really blown away

17 April 2012
  • Excerpt: This mic really didn't meet my expectations after reading all the great reviews. Although it is very well constructed and seems like it can take a beating, I feel like the mic really doesn't go too far beyond my onboard mic for my Sony HDR-FX1 in terms of sound quality.
  • Pros: Compact, Durable, Lightweight
  • Cons: Limited Functions

  • Excerpt: i bought this mic, with a recorder that only worked 30% of the time. Switched to a 3.5mm mic recorder. If I used xlr, i'd likely get this rode mic.

It works!

21 June 2011
  • Excerpt: Although it's not the best sounding mic I have ever heard, all other shotguns that I've worked with cost at least three times this one, so I don't think it's fair to compare them. In today's urban cities, noise is always a problem, but I was able to get great, focused sound outdoors, which is where...
