Fantastic Shotgun Mic

"Hey you", B&H Photo
21 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I love this mic. Works great under any circumstance. I travel a lot and the terrains very in temperature. The hot and cold never gives me an issue with audio. Comes with a handle metal container for your mic, is very handle as a prop. You could use it as a science fiction grenade or something, just make sure not to get the rode logo in frame. I've used other expensive mics before but this one is slightly less expensive and competes with the best.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality, Lightweight, Long Lasting

Great Shotgun Mic

  • Excerpt: This mic is a workhorse. Extremely clear audio, very directional, and the build quality is excellent. I use this mic paired with Sounddevices MM-1 preamp, and a Tascam DR-40 recorder, and couldn't be happier.

Very Impressed

  • Excerpt: This is my second Rode mic, the first being a VideoMic Pro for DSLRs. I have to say that this mic compares very favorably to the Sennheiser 416. I also love the padded cylinder that they include for transport - a very nice touch. All in all, I'd rate it excellent in both sound quality and for value.

This is a solid mic.

  • Excerpt: Although, the only other shotgun mic that I have used is an Azden SGM-2. I will have to say that this mic blows the Azden out of the water. The self-noise is almost non-existent and the sensitivity is amazing. My recommendation is that if you are a fledgling indie film-maker like me, spend the extra money and get this mic. It will be well worth the extra money.
  • Pros: Low Self-noise, Sensitive, Supreme Build Quality, Weather resistant, Wide Polar Pattern
  • Cons: Wide Polar Pattern

Great mic for the $

  • Excerpt: We use this primarily on a boom pole, but the pattern is wide enough that it works well as an on-camera mic too--used on the c300 since it doesn't have a built-in mic.
  • Pros: Great Sound Quality

Worth the Cost

Ben Jobe, B&H Photo
6 November 2013
  • Excerpt: When I was starting out I didn't have the money for a nice shotgun mic like this one. Instead I got the cheaper NTG-2, which has its shortcomings but served me well at first. But after shooting a video on a rainy day once and hearing the little POPS and CRACKLES in the audio later I knew that it was time to upgrade. This mic performs in both wet and dry conditions, and it's WAY more sensitive than my old mic.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Easy To Use
