Here is my new favorite shotgun mic for film work. It’s the Rode NTG 4+. I have previously also used a Rode microphone but it was an older model the Rode NTG 2. This new version has better audio sensitivity and also a built in battery so it doesn’t require phantom power.

This is my video review of the mic with audio samples. Also I show you my whole setup with the boom pole, shock mount and recorder.
