    Comparable with a Rode Pro, for “hundreds” less…, January 10, 2014
    By 

    This review is from: TAKSTAR the SGC-598 Photography Interview MIC Microphone for Nikon Canon Camera DV Camcorder (Electronics)
    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-597 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.

    Excellent Mic — Significantly Improves Audio Quality, December 6, 2013

    I found a review of this mic on YouTube, where it was stated that it was almost as good as the results with the much more expensive Rode shotgun mic at $100 more than this one. I was admittedly skeptical, but with the Rode version being way too expensive, I figured that I would give the TAKSTAR a try. I’m very happy I did.

    I have never used the Rode shotgun mic to directly compare it to this one, but when testing the TAKSTAR around the house and at my sons’ band concert, it was excellent. If nothing else, it’s head and shoulders above using the built-in mic on my camera, and since I won’t be shelling out the big $ for a Rode mic anytime soon, this definitely doing a perfect job for me. I really like the way this mic uses a regular AA battery instead of smaller, less common CR123A batteries, which cost more and can be a lot more difficult to find. I just bring more spare AA rechargeables that I also use in my external flash. The 10dB enhancer works great, but I haven’t really found that the noise reduction feature does anything. The mic easily and firmly attaches to my camera flash hotshoe, and the tension ring on mount is very oversized making the attachment very easy even for the not-so dexterous.

    FYI, I’m using it on a Panasonic Lumix FZ200 digital camera, typically recording 1080p MP4 @ 30fps. I had to buy a 3.5mm to 2.5mm adapter for it to work with this camera.

    OK Sound Quality, Decent Battery Life, Flimsy Build Quality, June 13, 2014

    Overall I was disappointed with this product. When it first arrived I was impressed by the beautiful packaging that gives the feel of a much more expensive microphone. Ultimately, however, you get what you pay for.

    The microphone’s sound quality was, after some tinkering, a little better than my internal cam mic, but not much. The most disappointing thing about this microphone was the flimsiness of the mounting hardware. The foot was made of a cheap plastic that came loose from the mounting hardware almost immediately. I took the microphone for its first use on a trip to Mammoth, mounted it on my canon HF R500 camcorder, and after normal use the foot snapped in half before the trip was over. I attempted to look online for manufacturer support in the US, and I couldn’t find one (only a general phone number). I submitted an e-mail to the company, we’ll see if they respond. I think next time I may wait and go with a more reputable company like Rode or Senheiser.

    Pros:

    - Inexpensive pricing
    - Comes with wind guard
    - Sleek, low footprint design
    - Decent sound quality, likely better than DSLR and camcorder internal microphones
    - Packaging. The nicest part of this microphone is the packaging it comes with.

    Cons:

    - Flimsy build quality. Mounting “hardware” is cheap plastic that came apart before I really got a chance to use it, then another part broke during first use.
    - Microphone is OK, a little better than my camcorder microphone, but that isn’t saying much. Definitely not on par with more expensive microphones. You get what you pay for.
    - Could not find a designated technical support for US, only general number.
