    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.

    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.

    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

    I recently become RODE authorized dealer. I have both NTG-1 and NTG-2 for sale at a great price. Please PM me if you are interested.
