About Rode Microphones NTG-3

The Rode NTG-3 Uses a technology known as RF-bias. The Rode NTG-3 is almost completely resistant to moisture, making it the only option when recording in any demanding environments where condensation is an issue. In addition to its robust properties the NTG-3 combines very low weight (163g), a durable anti-glare finish and incredibly low handling and self-noise (13dBA) to become Rode's premier A/V microphone.

When not in use the NTG-3 can be stored away in the included weather resistant aluminum storage cylinder, providing additional protection when travelling and storing the microphone.
