For Indie Films, TV & Documentaries
Moisture-Resistant for Humid Conditions
Simple Operation with No Controls
Shorter and lighter than the NTG3 and with a flatter bass
response, the Rode NTG5 moisture-resistant shotgun microphone lets you capture
natural, uncoloured sound indoors or outside for your next indie film, TV
shoot, or documentary project without weighing down your rig.
Professional-level features such as ultralow-noise
circuitry, a smooth off-axis response, and a tightly controlled low end make it
ideal for a range of location recording scenarios. Plus, it includes a furry
windshield and a pistol grip shockmount that can be attached to a boompole for
The NTG5's extremely high sensitivity allows it to
produce robust output levels without having to apply extreme gain at your mic
preamp. Sonically, the NTG5 delivers acoustic transparency due to its
pioneering circular acoustic ports, gentle rise in high frequencies, and
rumble-reducing attenuation of low bass frequencies. Its switch- and dial-free
design lets you set up quickly and focus on the sound instead of fiddling with
various mic settings. RF-bias technology and conformal coating ensure reliable
performance even in severe conditions.
Designed to Withstand Adverse Environmental Conditions
When your work takes you outdoors, you're bound to
encounter humidity and condensation, which can cause many mics to fail. The
NTG5's RF-bias technology and conformal coating provide excellent resistance to
moisture, cold, and dust, allowing you to reliably capture high-quality audio
in normal and adverse environmental conditions.
The NTG5 was engineered for transparency and all-weather
performance. The combination of the NTG5's 8" long body, revolutionary
circular acoustic ports, and supercardioid polar pattern yields focused on-axis
directionality, smooth off-axis response, and a transparent tone with a tightly
controlled low end. Its ultralow self-noise of 10 dBA and highly sensitive
condenser element communicate detailed audio unburdened by the hiss that
plagues many low-cost microphones.
Thanks to its 3-pin XLR output and compliance with 48 VDC
phantom power, the NTG5 is compatible with a variety of handheld audio
recorders, field recorders, and mixer adapters as well as built-in preamps on
many camcorders and cinema cameras. The included short XLR cable—designed for
use with the supplied pistol grip—features Neutrik and Switchcraft connectors
and an integrated strain-relief junction box.
Ideal for Handheld Operation or Boompole Mounting
The NTG5 includes the PG2-R pistol grip shockmount, which
impedes the transfer of vibrations to the microphone, and accommodates
comfortable handheld operation or placement on a boompole. A mic clip is
supplied in case you need to affix the NTG5 to a standard mic stand in a
Windshield and Windscreen for Reduction of Wind Noise
The NTG5 has a foam windscreen to reduce unwanted light
wind noise from fans, heaters, and air conditioners. For maximum reduction of
wind noise in indoor or outdoor environments, swap the windscreen for the
included furry windshield.
