Excerpt: I am a full time student of Visual Anthropology, and a good shotgun is a must. I tried my NTG-2 attached to Canon XA20 during club music session, night city scenes, interviews, and field archaeology project. The results are awesome in every single scenario.
Excerpt: Oh boy, this Rode NTG-2 Kit is every filmmaker's "dream", especially if you're just starting out. Don't get me wrong, the Sennheisers are the industry standard shotgun microphones, but the Rode come next to it, and even if you can't get the superior "NTG-3", you'll be pretty happy with this one, especially for booming outside environments and for interviews.
