Based on Rode's award winning NTG3, the Rode NTG8 Broadcast Quality Shotgun Microphone
exhibits increased directionality across a wide frequency response range. This makes the Rode NTG8 the perfect microphone for film, television, sports and outdoor broadcasting, live performance, and any professional distance micing application.
Like the NTG3, the NTG8 shotgun mic features low self-noise, natural sound without coloration both on and off-axis, and RF bias technology to ensure that it is almost completely resistant to high humidity environments which could cause other condenser microphones to fail.
The Rode NTG8 is finished in matte black and supplied with a specially designed shock mount (SM8) that is engineered to provide excellent handling noise isolation, cable management and versatile mounting options for the mic. A rugged weatherproof aluminum cylinder is also included with the NTG8, providing ultimate protection for the mic when in transport or storage. The WSNTG8 windshield completes the package, providing light environmental protection.
