The Rode NTG-8 Precision Broadcast-Grade Long Shotgun Microphone picks up on the tradition of the NTG-3 shotgun microphone with broadcast quality performance, uniform directionality and durable construction. The long NTG-8 measures 22" (559mm) in length and features a true condenser, supercardioid, external RF biased element with a high resistance to humidity and adverse weather conditions.
Its extended length makes it a viable choice for achieving high levels of intelligibility, detail and low noise during wide camera shots, or while positioned further from the signal source. The NTG-8's frequency response, sensitivity and dynamic range make it outstanding in audio for video, feature film, documentaries, live broadcasts and much more. The microphone is phantom powered (externally) and includes a windscreen, shockmount and aluminum storage cylinder.
