The RØDE NTG-2 is a lightweight condenser shotgun microphone, designed for professional applications within the film, video, television and production industries.

Its full frequency response, low noise and audio transparency make it an ideal film, video, and voice over microphone, while its low weight (161g without battery) makes it an ideal boom microphone.

In addition to the NTG-2 native 20Hz-20kHz response a selectable high-pass filter at 80Hz is available, which will prevent low end noise such as air conditioners and traffic from being recorded.

The NTG-2 operates either from a AA (1.5V) battery or P48 phantom power which can be supplied by professional cameras, audio recorders and power supplies.

The WSVM windshield is supplied to minimise light wind noise and plosives during recording.
