Rode NTG2 Condenser Shotgun Microphone
Excellent Shotgun mic for the price
I have been using this microphone for my location recordings, dialogue, and foley as well as sound effects recordings. The built quality of this microphone is really robust and solid which makes it durable. I can say it's a great mic at a good price, the phantom? powered NTG2 is moisture resistant, robust, and known for balanced sound and good value. There is a hi-pass filter switch which you might find useful if you are recording on location and want to filter out unwanted frequencies.
In a nutshell, this is a great microphone with decent performance for the price. I recommend buying this microphone.
Even though its not the top of the line model rode do in terms of shotgun microphones, i was amazed how good this micophone is.
Paired with the zoom h6, and a rode boom pole this is great for audio recording. It can pick up even the faintest whipser from where you are aiming while not picking up much sound from elsewhere. I can barely hear any noise floor with the microphone, and the range you can get out of it is amazing. You just have to be careful to not forget you've set it for picking up very quiet sounds and nearly deafen yourself when you make a noise.
