    Built for any environment

    Using a technology known as RF-bias, the RODE NTG-3 is almost completely resistant to moisture, making it ideal for recording in any demanding environments where condensation is an issue. Be it in a tropical rainforest, arid desert, or sub-zero snowstorm, the NTG-3 can be relied on to faithfully record audio where traditional condenser microphones would fail.

    Lightweight, low-noise

    In addition to its robust properties, the NTG-3 combines very low weight (163g), a durable anti-glare finish, and incredibly low handling and self-noise (13dBA) to become RODE's premier A/V microphone.

    Suitable storage

    When not in use, the NTG-3 can be stored away in the included weather-resistant aluminium storage cylinder, providing additional protection when travelling and storing the microphone.

    What RØDE Says...

    The RØDE NTG3 super-cardioid shotgun microphone is designed for professional use on film, television, electronic news gathering 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 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.
