To better serve my clients I have added a 2nd high quality shotgun microphone to my kit the Rode NTG-3. This microphone was chosen due to its robust construction, high resistance to RF interference and ability to operate in high humidity conditions. It also In addition to the Rode NTG-3 microphone Pro Location Sound LLC also has the Industry Standard Sennheiser MKH-416 as well as Rode NTG-1 and Rode NTG-2. As always having the best and most up to date gear is our number one prioirty. I will post a review of the RODE NTG-3 after using it. Below is what RODE Says about the NTG-3:
The NTG-3 is the result of years of research and development by RODE engineers, providing broadcast and film professionals with an affordable yet uncompromising microphone.
RODE uses a technology known as RF-bias to create an almost completely moisture resistant microphone. In addition to capturing flawless audio in normal environments, the NTG-3 is ideal for those projects involving humid climates where condensation is an issue.
At 5.75 ounces, the NTG-3 is very lightweight and also boasts extremely low handling and self-noise (13dBA). Included with the microphone is a weather resistant aluminum storage cylinder for protection when traveling.
Rode offers a 10 year warranty on this microphone when registered on the Rode website.
