Still curious if anyone has tried the Rode NTG-3, and can comment on whether it's worth the price difference from the NTG-1 or 2.

Hello fellow XH A! owners. I just upgraded to this camera, and have yet to test it out. I shoot wildlife and outdoor adventure videos and I need a mic that is able to pick up the sounds of a distant grunting bull moose or bugling elk. Previously, I was using a Canon DM-50 mic on a Canon Optura 60. The DM-50 did pick-up more sounds than the onboard mic, but also picked up the sound of the camera motor. I am considering the Rode NTG-1/2/3,
but would like to hear what others experiences are with this mic, and whether you think this mic is capable of picking up distant sounds in the forest. Does any one know if the XLR cables are included with the NTG 1 or 3? Or, should I be looking for a better mic? I have many more questions, as I am a bit overwhelmed with the capabilities of this camera. Thanks for any replies.

Rode NTG-3

NTG-3 is a great mic, audio mixing and recording is my first love
and that covers a lot of angles for me.

Do you know how it compares with the NTG-1? I'm trying to get a feel for whether it's worth the price difference.
