0 以下を取り扱うオンライン NTG5

  • Revolutionary acoustic design, delivering a natural, uncoloured sound.
  • Extremely lightweight (just 76g), and short in length (just 203mm)
  • Tailored frequency response and very low self-noise of just 10dBA
  • Highly directional supercardioid polar pattern and smooth off-axis response
  • RF-bias technology and conformal coating ensure superior performance in adverse environmental conditions
  • Comes in a complete location recording kit with WS10 windshield, PG2-R pistol grip and other accessories

The NTG5 is a short, ultra-lightweight shotgun microphone ideal for use in the most demanding recording applications. Featuring a revolutionary acoustic design with circular ports replacing the linear slots found in other shotgun mics, it offers unmatched transparency and a more natural, uncoloured sound. Combined with a tightly controlled frequency response, smooth off-axis response, and very low self-noise (just 10dBA), the NTG5 sounds spectacular in a wide variety of applications, particularly location recording and demanding filmmaking scenarios where superlative audio is the imperative. No excuses.

The NTG5 is a boom operator’s dream, weighing a mere 76g and measuring just over 20cm, making it ideal for use on long, demanding shoots. It features RF-bias circuitry to ensure reliable performance in adverse environments, with excellent resistance to high humidity, severe cold, damp, and dust. And it comes with a WS10 deluxe windshield, PG2-R pistol grip, and other accessories – the perfect location recording kit.

NTG5 サポート
  • Can the NTG5 be used as a voiceover microphone like the NTG3?+
    • Absolutely! The NTG3 is a legendary voiceover mic, which is largely due to the extended low end but also its natural high frequencies. The NTG5 has a flatter low end, but a very similar high frequency response to the NTG3 and will sound fantastic as a voiceover mic.

  • Does the shorter length of the NTG5 make it less directional?+
    • The active part of the line tube of the NTG5 is the same length as the NTG3, maintaining the directional characteristics of shotgun-style mics.

  • How resilient is the NTG5 in extreme weather?+
    • The NTG5’s conformal coating is a thin layer of protective material that shields the active electronics from any moisture or particles, and the RF-biased circuitry is very resistant to moisture. This makes the NTG5 perfect for use in harsh weather conditions.

  • What is the difference between the NTG3 and the NTG5?+
    • The NTG5 builds on the ground-breaking technology of the NTG3 (namely the RF-bias technology, which ensures better immunity to moisture and other environmental factors that can affect performance) with a focus on making it the ideal location recording microphone. First of all, it is much shorter and lighter than the NTG3, which makes it easier to handle on a boom pole. It also features a revolutionary new acoustic design, which delivers a beautifully natural and uncoloured sound; and it has a less pronounced low end response than the NTG3, which is preferable when recording on-location. Lastly, the electronics have been redesigned, resulting in lower self-noise than the NTG3 (10dBA vs 13dBA). They are both great microphones that can be used interchangeably in many scenarios, however, the NTG5 excels as a location recording mic, whereas the NTG3’s pronounced low end is ideal for recording indoors (also great outdoors), and for voiceovers and other applications where rich bottom end is desired. 

  • Why would I use the NTG5 on location instead of another shotgun mic?+
    • The NTG5 is incredibly light at just 76 grams, making it a dream for boom operators or filmmakers looking for a compact shotgun that delivers broadcast-grade audio. It has a flatter low end, making it ideal for recording outdoors and on-location. This also effectively provides the preamp with more headroom. Finally, the RF-bias circuitry and conformal coating improve the resilience of all electronic components.
