The Rode Videomic NTG is the new top of the line mic form RODE, and it packs quite a few interesting features. It’s part of the VideoMic series which is usually for on-camera use, but it’s also an NTG which is usually used for the company’s high-end mics. We tested the microphone, and we can see why it’s both an NTG and a VideoMic. For our thoughts on the features and on the sound quality, hit the jump.
There is such a vast array of microphones on the market these days of many different types. It can be difficult to know where to begin when beginning our journey with audio. It’s usually the last thing on a filmmaker’s mind, but it’s one of the most important aspects of video. We stopped by the Rode stand at PhotoPlus 2019 to find out why sound is so important and how different microphones work better for different situations.
