I am about to buy a shotgun mic these days and right now I am trying to decide between NTG1 and NTG2. Is the NTG2 just the new version of NTG1, in the general recommendations it is NTG1 that is suggested while a lot of people here seem to have the NTG2 and to be quite happy with it? Thanks for any info.

I'm not gonna talk too much about the legs. The legs I received are good legs, and work very well.

Based on Oleg's comments elsewhere I bought the NTG 1 because it is lighter and shorter and costs less. Same audio specs. Either way you will be fine. If using on the DVX or HVX you can run the NTG 1 off phantom power and have a lighter shorter mike.

basically the NTG-2 is a NTG-1 with the capability of using a battery aswell as phantom power which is why its longer and heavier. The NTG-1 is phantom power only.

Thank you, I had the same question! Just upgraded to Canon 5D Mark II and starting to shoot video but need better audio and getting the Zoom H4n.

If you're deciding between the 1 and 2, one consideration might be ... is that with the battery option on the NTG-2, it could be easier to sell later ... and you will sometime way in the future.

NTG-1 is just a regular phantom powered shotgun mic. NTG-2 is a bit more flexible that you can load a AA battery to connect to small camcorders or DSLR that takes 3.5mm input. You will need to get a cable like this
