Dual-power Shotgun Microphone
The NTG2 is a lightweight condenser shotgun microphone, designed for professional applications in film, video, television and broadcast. Its full frequency response, low noise and audio transparency makes it ideal in a range of applications including filmmaking, voice-over and streaming. It can operate either from P48 phantom power or via a removable AA battery for maximum flexibility in the studio or in the field. It also features a switchable high-pass filter for added flexibility.
To connect the XLR microphone output to a TRS stereo input (3.5mm socket), you will need to buy or make a XLR to stereo TRS cable. To make the cable, please follow the instructions in the picture below. This cable connects between the microphone and a camcorder or DSLR camera.
This cable will allow you to connect your microphone output to a stereo TRS input and receive the audio signal on both the input channels.
Please note: Should the microphone require phantom power to operate, this will not be available from a TRS socket.
There can be power issues when trying to run the NTG-2 from 1.2V batteries, this usually sounds like popping in the audio signal. Our specifications state that the NTG-2 requires 1.5V batteries to correctly power the microphone.
