    I chose this over a Rode Pro, and never looked back…, January 10, 2014
    By 

    This review is from: TAKSTAR SGC-598 Photography Interview MIC Microphone for Nikon Canon Camera DV Camcorder (Camera)
    I produce Interview style videos for a living. I use a Professional field recorder with matched stereo microphones for my primary audio track. Recently I decided to add a “camera mount” shotgun microphone as a safety, aka a scratch track. The “on camera” microphone was useless, so why not? There is nothing more frustrating than shooting a set, then finding out your memory card or drive failed and you have no audio. So, I tried 1/2 a dozen different microphones ranging from a $30 “cheapie” all the way up to the $230+ Rode Pro.

    So, the final decision was between the Rode Pro, and an inexpensive TAKSTAR (A brand I’d never heard of before). Evidently, the people behind TAKSTAR manufacture 99% of the shotgun camera microphones “for” brand name manufacturers like Opteka, Azden, AT and (you guessed it) Rode.

    To my complete surprise, the TAKSTAR SGC-598 performed 99% as well as the Rode Pro, both indoors and outdoors. In fact, when editing audio in Post the TAKSTAR track was easier to work, with since it had a more neutral range. The Rode has a very heavy mid-range push (their “trademark” sound) which is fine for family videos or making your voice sound better on amateur documentaries, but very annoying to work with in a professional audio editor.

    It was so inexpensive I picked up a second one as a spare (just in case) and plan to use them on all future shoots. The audio ended up being so good, I found I can easily use it as primary audio if my main system fails someday. Sure it will take a few hours to tweak/EQ, but it’s a viable backup track, for practically free.

    My verdict, if you want an inexpensive, great sounding shotgun, this is the way to go. It’s easy to use, has great sound, decent line level, and it’s well built. It also uses AA batteries.

    Videomic or Takstar… Hmmm, April 23, 2014

    This review is from: TAKSTAR SGC-598 Photography Interview MIC Microphone for Nikon Canon Camera DV Camcorder (Camera)
    This review goes out to everyone thinking of buying a Rode videomic or a Takstar SGC-598.

    BUY THIS MIC IF: you’re on a small budget, don’t mind boosting the sound in post production, and plan on speaking more or less directly into it. OR is you NEED to mic a lot of different areas simultaneously on the cheap.

    DON’T BUY THIS IF: you’re wanting a rich warm sounding mic that can pick up chatter from 25+ feet and requires very little post production tweaking. Spend money on a higher quality mic and you’ll get your money’s worth in time saved in post production.

    First of all, let me acknowledge that you’re on a budget. Most people are. Whether the budget it large or small there is always a budget. My budget was on the low end of high, being about $2-300 for my audio set up for an attempt at a youtube channel.

    To begin with I bought a Rode Videomic off craigslist for $100 and was immediately impressed with the strong mids and it’s ability to pick up voices and noises with clarity from 25+ feet. As I did more interviews and bought more equipment I realized that having multiple mics in one shoot would add some flexibility to my audio editing, so I started browsing mics again and found this.

    Some reviewers say “it’s just as good as a Rode, virtually indistinguishable!” but if you don’t notice the difference between this mic and a videomic pro you’ve either got a junk audio in set up, or you should let someone else handle the audio editing. The Takstar is NOT a fantastic pro quality do everything mic, but it is a cheap and capable mic for budding videographers. Here’s the ups and downs I’ve found after about 2-3 months of use and back to back testing between a videomic and this.

    Ups:
    -Decent clarity at close ranges
    -Low enough hiss
    -Smaller than I thought (it looks pretty huge in pictures)
    -Buy 3 for the price of 1 Rode Videomic ($150)
    -Great to put it in harms way, you’re only risking $40

    Downs:
    -VERY quite, even with +10db on
    -Struggles to pick up sounds from 25+ feet
    -Shock mount is too stiff, might as well be glued on
