The new RODE NTG-2 is a lightweight condenser shotgun microphone, designed for professional applications within the film, video, television and production industries.

I shot a video, used this shotgun mic right over our heads, didn't really pick up that much sound.
Though this device captures sound great, it is very fragile. If you drop it, you can probably damage it. So just be careful in handling the microphone. The good thing about this microphone is it can record very loud sounds with little or no reverb. That in itself is worth the buy.
This mic works great for voice over tracks. And I was very surprised at how well it records violin. If you have ever tried to record on violin, then you know how difficult it is to get a good sound on violin. This mic (surprisingly) works great for that.
