Rode NTG+ & Nikon D850

Hi all,

Probably a dumb question... The NTG4+ Mic requires an XLR cable for audio. I wish to record the audio straight into my D850 (run and gun filmmaker here) which cable do I require to make this work?

Is it a female XLR to 3.5mm audio jack?

Thanks for the help!


I mean you can buy a cable adapter but that wouldn't be the best solution for pre amp reasons. I would buy a zoom h4n or Tascam DR-40 and have the mic go into the recorder then into your camera through the 8mm jack in the recorder. You're going to need to rig the recorder to your setup, but I think this is the best way to go about it.

Cool. I’ll have to try that. Thanks, Alex.
