The RODE NTG3 Precision Broadcast-Grade Shotgun Microphone is a supercardioid microphone designed for professional use on film, television, electronic news gathering and wherever high-resolution broadcast audio is required. As RODE'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 light weight.

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.

A 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 RODE NTG3 shotgun microphone is designed and made in Australia, and covered by RODE Microphones' industry leading 10 year warranty.
