https://youtu.be/B8aE0loboMA It's here and everything I had hoped it would be! But is it for everyone?
A couple of months ago you all voted on what you wanted to cover next and one of the things you voted for was a review of the RØDE NTG4+ shotgun microphone. This is RØDE’s next generation enthusiast/pro shotgun mic and it has a few interesting features:
- The "+" version has an inbuilt lithium battery that can power the mic for 150 hours - A re-designed microphone capsule (which I think sounds a bit more natural than the NTG2 with less of the low frequency boost that sounds like FM radio announcers) - Electronic buttons for high pass, high frequency boost, and -10 dB pad as well as mic power
We’ve spent a few weeks working with it and it is a great, very versatile mic! RØDE has done a great job filling a hole in the shotgun mic market. Better quality than the $100 - $300 mics and added features that make this mic incredibly versatile.
