Rode NTG-2 directly into the GH2

I was actually thinking about using the NTG2 connected directly into the GH2 with an XLR to mini jack adapter cable. Doesnīt the GH2 have a sound monitor "graph"? I know itīs not a pro solution, but couldnīt it be used to monitor the audio from the NTG2?

Are you planing to use it on the iphone or directly on the GH2?
Please share your thoughts once you get it.

The rep at B&H said it should work with the GH2 'in theory', so we'll see how it works
in reality.

Good luck but I doubt it will work for you.... the pin connections for iphones / ipads are quite different than camera inputs.
The cable you have indicated uses a TRRS (4 connections) not a TRS connector (3 connections) normally used as a camera stereo input.

This shows the 4 connections used for some apple products.
