Rode VideoMic Directional Video Condenser Microphone w/Mount
The VideoMic from Rode is a cost effective shotgun microphone that can easily be mounted on a video camera because it features an integrated shockmount that attaches to the camera's shoe. The VideoMic is lightweight, and when mounting on a camera it does not appear in the frame. Its super-cardioid polar pattern attenuates sounds from the sides. The result is a signal that sounds closer to the camera, even when shooting in noisy environments or at moderate distances.
Rode Deadcat Wind Muff for NTG-1 and NTG-2 Microphones
The Rode Dead Cat Wind Muff is a zip-on furry cover with deep artificial fur that fits snugly over the NTG-1 and NTG-2 microphones. The Wind Muff greatly reduces wind noise when recording in windy conditions.
