Best Indie Film Audio Setup with Rode NTG 4+ Shotgun Mic

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.

Here 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.

You can get the Rode NTG 4+ microphone on B&H, Adorama, Henry’s, eBay, Amazon, Amazon.ca, Amazon UK, Amazon.de

  1. Hi Tom may I know is it a must to use the zoom recorder to record the audio? Can I just use the ntg4+ with boom pole and Connect the cable to the dslr?
