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 read more 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.
