  • Summary: I use this microphone with a Beachtek DXA-4, mounted to a Sony FX1. Most common use is for interviews with people outdoors and on boats. The sound is better than the built in microphone on the FX1. You will need a dead cat to help with wind noise.
  • Pros: Better sound quaility, Solid Construction
  • Cons: none

I would recommend this product

  • Summary: I am using the NTG-2 mainly outdoors for travel related video where the ambient background noises are a distraction. The NTG-2 does a very good job at eliminating those background noises. One thing I did notice, however, is the main subject when using this mic is sometimes hard to pickup unless you're in close. For travel video this isn't a problem usually. This mic has met all of my expectations thus far and I would recommend it as a good low cost mic.
  • Pros: Good Windscreen, Lightweight, Simple Use
