Broadcast Shotgun Microphone
The NTG3 is a broadcast-grade shotgun microphone designed for the most demanding shoots that high-resolution broadcast audio. It features RF-bias technology that yields superior resistance to moisture and condensation, making it suitable for outdoor shoots in adverse conditions. The NTG3 has a rich, warm sound and a tightly controlled polar pattern with exceptional off-axis performance with no coloration. It is also highly regarded for voice-over work, where its natural tone and punch deliver exceptional performance for a wide range of voice types.
There have been reports of compatibility issues when connecting the NTG-3 to a battery powered wireless transmitter such as the Lectrosonics UH400AAU.
This is due to there not being enough power in the transmitter to power the mic. Most portable transmitters can only provide 4mA of current at 48V. The NTG3 requires at least 5mA.
