Excerpt: I'll start off by saying I'm certainly no audiophile and can't tell you the subtle nuances between this shotgun mic and another but I can say it's been great for me. I shoot weddings and, though this is not my main source of audio, having it on my Canon XF100 is a great addition. During a recent shoot, it provided clear professional audio that'll be great for b-roll sound.
Excerpt: I bought this for a short film i was shooting and i needed to upgrade my audio. This was a prefect choice. I bought it in the Rode NTG2 DSLR Kit. Everything i needed to increase my audio. Works great and will last me a long time as long as i keep taking care of it.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight
Excerpt: I've got two NTG-2 mics now. We've mounted them on our XF-100 and XA-20. We've put them on the Rode boom pole. We've even used them for voiceover work, mounting them on a stand and having a speaker face them at an oblique angle in our portable sound booth. One AA battery provides the power you need. I've yet to use the low pass filter.
