The RØDE NTG1 is a lightweight condenser shotgun microphone, designed for professional applications within the film, video, television and production industries. It is also great to use the shotgun microphone for electronic news gathering (ENG). Its full frequency response, low noise and audio transparency make it an ideal film, video, and voice over microphone, while its low weight (105 g) makes it an ideal boom microphone. In addition to the native 20Hz-20kHz frequency 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 WSVM windshield is supplied to minimise light wind noise and plosives during recording. The optional 'DeadCat' furry is recommended for outdoor applications.
The super-cardioid polar pattern and line gradient acoustic principle allow for a narrow pick up pattern at the front of the capsule while minimising noise at the off-axis sections.
Low noise output electronics provide high signal-to-noise ratio. The NTG1 is designed to also reduce noise caused by handling, rigid mounting hardware, loose cabling etc.
