Rode's NTG condenser shotgun microphones are optimized for dynamic environments where pinpointing and capturing audio is an absolute must. Unlike the NTG-1 and NTG-2 models, the Rode NTG-3 is purposefully designed for outdoor environments where weather conditions can be unpredictable, at best. The NTG-3's lightweight design, sturdy construction and polar patter ensure that the NTG-3 will deliver the results you expect during filming and broadcasting sessions.

The RØDE NTG3 super cardioid shotgun microphone is designed for professional use on film, television, ENG and wherever high resolution broadcast audio is required.

As RØDE's premier directional microphone the NTG3 exhibits superlative audio quality with a rich warm quality and a full frequency response. Its RF bias technology makes it almost completely resistant to moisture, making it the only option when recording in demanding environments where condensation is an issue.

Machined from solid brass and available in either anti-glare nickel plated finish or matte black (NTG3B), the NTG3 is incredibly robust while remaining incredibly lightweight.

Its precise yet forgiving polar pattern ensures that whether used on-camera or on a boom pole, the NTG3 will capture audio clearly every time.

An incredibly durable aluminum storage cylinder is supplied to provide the ultimate protection for the NTG3 while in storage and transport. Tightly sealed at both ends the cylinder is highly weatherproof, adding to the microphone's rugged performance credentials.

The RØDE NTG3 precision shotgun microphone is covered by RØDE Microphones' industry leading 10 year warranty.
