Every serious filmmaker and YouTuber knows the importance of investing in a decent microphone to capture better quality audio. The Rode VideoMic NTG Hybrid Analog/USB Camera-Mount Shotgun Microphone can help. Designed for vloggers and podcasters in mind, this microphone can work with mobile devices, cameras, and computers. It runs for 30 hours on battery.
The VideoMic NTG’s body has acoustic perforations. Thanks to its supercardioid polar pattern, the mic can focus on sound in front of it while attenuating sound from the sides and rear. You can connect it to your camera or computer via a TRRS or USB cable. It has a convenient -20dB pad and adjustable gain.
