Revolutionary acoustic design, delivering a natural, uncoloured sound. Extremely lightweight (just 76g), short shotgun microphone (just 203mm), making it far easier to handle on set than other shotgun mics, especially when used on a boom pole. Tailored frequency response and very low self-noise of just 10dbA, making it ideal for location recording, professional filmmaking, and other critical recording situations. Highly directional supercardioid polar pattern and smooth off-axis response. RF-bias technology and conformal coating ensure superior performance in adverse weather conditions. Comes in a complete location recording kit with windshield, pistol grip and other accessories – the NTG5 is ready to take into the field right out of the box.
