Short, Ultra-Lightweight Shotgun Microphone Location Recording Kit

>Revolutionary Acoustic Design

The first thing you will notice about the NTG5 is the striking new body. The design has been completely overhauled, with circular acoustic ports replacing the linear slots found in other shotgun mics. The revolutionary design is the result of many months of specialised acoustic testing that began during the development of the TF5 - our new premium small diaphragm condenser mic designed in collaboration with legendary engineer Tony Faulker. The TF5's capsule features a unique perforated acoustic vent design and this breakthrough lead us to completely reimagine the NTG5's design, with acoustic perforations employed along the length of the microphone.

The result is a shotgun mic with unmatched acoustic transparency, and a natural, uncolored sound that will sound superb in a wide variety of applications. The annular line tube technology intrinsic to the NTG5's design sets it apart from all other microphones in its category, and will see this microphone take its place as a future industry standard.

A Boom Operator's Dream

The NTG5 features a short, super lightweight aluminium body (just 76g!), making it one of the most compact professional shotgun mics on the market - a dream for boom operators who find themselves on long, demanding shoots, or filmmakers and sound recordists looking for a more portable and lightweight rig that delivers broadcast-grade audio.

The Perfect Location Recording Mic

Boasting a tightly controlled frequency response and very low self-noise, the NTG5 sounds spectacular in a wide variety of applications, particularly location recording and demanding filmmaking scenarios where superlative audio is imperative. No excuses.

RF-bias technology and conformal coating ensure the NTG5 is reliable in adverse environments. It is designed to be taken everywhere, with excellent resistance to wet conditions, high humidity, severe cold and dust. The NTG5 comes in a complete location recording kit, featuring the new WS10 windshield, redesigned pistol grip and other accessories - it's ready to be taken into the field right out of the box.

The NTG5's highly directional supercardioid polar pattern and smooth off-axis response deliver superb audio whether used on a boom pole, pistol grip, or on-camera. It is ideal for capturing dialogue and other detailed sound sources in any environment and will outperform high-end shotgun microphones that cost several times more. The perfect location recording mic.
