Great video mic
Andrew NeroH, 04.11.2017
Very easy to use. Just pop an AA battery inside, and it'll last weeks without needing a change.
I found this mic to be a little too sensitive when recording outside and you wish to avoid parasite sounds. I didn't find it as directional as I wanted it to be, but it didn't stop me from getting the results I wanted from it.
It sounds clean as hell for inside scenes and it captures transients perfectly. I'd buy it all over again and would recommend it if you need to work on a film project.
Again, a great product from Rode.

Amazing microphone
G-Evans, 28.04.2018
Even though its not the top of the line model rode do in terms of shotgun microphones, i was amazed how good this micophone is.

Paired with the zoom h6, and a rode boom pole this is great for audio recording. It can pick up even the faintest whipser from where you are aiming while not picking up much sound from elsewhere. I can barely hear any noise floor with the microphone, and the range you can get out of it is amazing. You just have to be careful to not forget you've set it for picking up very quiet sounds and nearly deafen yourself when you make a noise.

Foam cover doesn an okay job at cancelling wind noise but deadcat addition is useful for if you need to use the mic where you have harsh outdoor conditions.

Excellent Shotgun mic for the price
Jay237921, 14.06.2018
I purchased the Rode NTG 2 from Thomann a while ago. I have been using this microphone for my location recordings, dialogue, and foley as well as sound effects recordings. The built quality of this microphone is really robust and solid which makes it durable. I can say it's a great mic at a good price, the phantom?powered NTG2 is moisture resistant, robust and known for balanced sound and good value. There is a hi-pass filter switch which you might find useful if you are recording on location and want to filter out unwanted frequencies.
In a nutshell, this is a great microphone wich decent performance for the price. I recommend buying this microphone.

Great for overheads for video production
07.03.2017
I bought this for video production. You cannot really compare the inbuilt microphones of video cameras to microphones of this quality.

It comes with a nice windshield, which even in doors I think I will keep on as it keeps the dust off and doesn't really affect the sensitivity that much.

I can quite happily pick up speech audio at 1 to 2 metres in a non-reflective environment without too much noise and maintaining a good clarity in the sound.

It is built like a tank with an all metal construction, but is very light weight. I purchased a 3rd party holder for the video camera as the Rode video adapter holder is well overpriced.

I have not yet tried this microphone out on some acoustic instruments so I cannot say if covers this adequately. But for what I want i.e, spoken voice it covers my need 100%. I managed to grab this when it was on offer so I am even more happy with the purchase.

Highly recommended
