Putting professional gear within reach of all, Rode introduces the NTG3 supercardioid shotgun microphone. Designed to capture crystal-clear audio in any location, the NTG3 places dialogue at the front of the mix so that discerning listeners feel like they're right there with you as you hit Record. The NTG3's lightweight build and exceptionally low self-noise and low handling noise properties make it a superior choice for professional audio for video applications, including film, television, games, high-resolution broadcasting, voiceovers, field recording, and more. This under-half-a-pound shotgun mic is almost completely moisture-resistant, making it a reliable, weatherproof microphone for any recording environment, whether it's the beach or the top of a snowy mountain. Use the Rode NTG3 anywhere!

Top Choice for A/V

Wherever, whenever, and however you use the NTG3 supercardioid shotgun microphone, you will be rewarded with the clear, high-quality audio that professional A/V applications demand. Its precise supercardioid polar pattern rejects ambient sound to the sides and rear, even at a distance, and its full frequency response from 40 Hz to 20 kHz ensures that even the most subtle sounds are captured. Mount it on a camera or place it on a boom pole to capture crisp dialogue, foley, or "nat sound."

Low-Noise Design

Low handling noise and low self-noise of 13 dBA make the highly sensitive NTG3 mic a no-brainer for film and broadcast applications in the field. Rode designed this shotgun microphone especially for professional use on film, television, ENG and wherever high-resolution broadcast audio is required.

Truly Weatherproof

Thanks to RF bias technology, the NTG3 is almost completely resistant to moisture. Even when recording on location in Siberia for a 007 movie, in a tropical forest for a documentary, or in any demanding environment where condensation is an issue, the microphone will perform reliably.

Aluminium Storage Cylinder Included

For additional durability and longevity, the NTG3's aluminum storage cylinder is weatherproof as well. Tightly sealed at both ends, the rugged cylinder offers protection for the microphone while in storage and transport. The mic will stay in tip-top shape even while it's not in use.

Solid, Rugged and Still Extremely Lightweight

Rode's NTG3 shotgun condenser is made from solid brass and features an anti-glare finish. At just 5.75 ounces, the NTG3 is incredibly lightweight, offering some relief when you're holding a boom or an already-heavy camera for extended periods of time.

Features:

- Designed for A/V use: film, television, ENG, and more

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
