background noise

  • This is a directional microphone that is designed for close interviews. If your background noise (crowd, wind, traffic, ect.) is loud hen it will be picked up just like any other microphone.

If you're trying to record audio from say ~20ft away (ex. - wedding vows recorded from the audience) will this still be effective?

  • This microphone will work for that but the quality will not be great. In order to capture the voice loud enough you would have to turn up the sensitivity in your camera which will add in a hissing noise. It will be alot better than the internal mic especially if your using a dslr.

Will this unit fit any hotshoe equipped digital camera?

  • Yes, it should. I have used it with different on-camera mounts as well, although if you load your DSLR with an on-camera light and a mic it can get top-heavy, but the mic is fairly lightweight on its own. It doesn't hinder any movements or get in the way of shooting.

Does the microphone have background noise reduction features? Does it pick up a lot of background noise?

How well will it work with an audio recorder such as a H1N or H4N?

  • It would probably work alot better than just plugging it straight into the camera because the amp on the camera isn't that grate. I know for a fact that canon cameras are notorious for having alot of hiss in the auto. So the answer to your question would be yes. It would definitely sound better on any external audio re… see more It would probably work alot better than just plugging it straight into the camera because the amp on the camera isn't that grate.

I noticed the shock mount is designed like the Rode Video Mic. Does this mic have the issues with the rubber bands squeaking, like the Rode Video Mic?

  • No, if kept very well it shouldnt be a problem, just dont force the rubber bands to streth to hard.

    Upgraded my camera to one that has a mic jack (finally) and after lots of research chose this one. It is easy to use, takes a regular AA battery and works great. The battery door can be a bit tricky but it seems to get a long life out of one battery so I'm not too worried about it since changes wont be frequent. I do wish it came with a dead cat wind cover, but for the price I just made my own for a custom fit and it works well enough. Sound was pretty clean for a mic at this price-point and SO much better than the in-camera mic, definitely worth grabbing if you want to shoot video.

    I really loved this piece of uni-directional shot gun microphone. It is well built and very affordable for a beginner like me to create videos for my youtube channel. I set up this very quickly and it has some shock absorber below the microphone. For nice audio pick up from 10-20 feet straight to camera, we can use this is cameraman also wants to talk ( cardiod pick up ). I am very much satisfied and full value for the money I spent. Its my daily vlogging microphone although I have some Rode Wireless go. I also use this with iphone but with two adapters sold separately.

    Unlike many items on the market, this TAKSTAR SGC-598 is only 35 dollars. It has just about the same sound quality as the higher end camera microphones. I have been using this camera for my DSLR Canon camera. The one problem I had with this mic the quality of the materials. It is made with cheap plastic along with the cheap foam that goes on the end of the mic. Every time I screw on and off my camera, it feels like it is going to break. but other than that, It's good. Unless you need to record some sort of voice over, I recommend getting this Mic

    This is an amazing microphone. I was recording a video next to a running outside AC unit, and it canceled out the noise. The microphone is very directional. Very rarely needs the battery to be changed. I've accidentally left it on for 24 hrs before and the battery still lasts months. The audio quality is superb, its better than my stand microphone I have for my computer. I might hook it up to the computer to do voiceover work. I would recommend and definitely would buy again.

    If you have even looked into budget audio solutions for DSLR filmmaking I am sure you have heard of the TAKSTAR. The myth, the legend. There are many videos out there comparing its sound to higher priced microphone solutions for your DSLR but at a crazy price the TAKSTAR blows some of them out of the water. This is a must have for anyone with a DSLR, I mean how could you not purchase it at this price?

    It is way cheaper than a Rode mic and has much better sound quality too, I watched many reviews on YouTube about this mic so that my Nikon D3200 would sound amazing when doing videos. this mic will not disappoint. one concern is where it connects to the Hot shoe is a little weak but if your careful and not taking toxic masculinity out on the mic when installing and and tear down from your camera it will be just fine!.

    This mic is great! It's sturdy, doesn't feel cheap, has a shock mount, and pretty nice sound quality. I did find that I had to reduce the noise from the mic in final cut pro, but it wasn't that hard. I've already used it for a short documentary and it worked fine! Great item!

    Absolutely makes a difference in providing a better quality sound then my on-board mics for my Vixia HF100. Very pleased with the result. Was exactly what I was hoping for and expecting. Used a LimoStudio Camera Bracket, which provide a nice grip for the camera as well as a suitable mount of the mic.

    I purchased this for my Canon 80D and it works just fine! I threw a wide angle lens on and adjusted. Takes a while but once you're all set is awesome! Those smooth shots will make your mouth water. Affordable and quality build. Can't go wrong with this product!

    I recently rebooted my YouTube channel which was dormant for nearly 5 years. After rewatching some of my old videos I realized that I needed to upgrade my setup if I wanted to remain relevant and stay up to date. I have this paired this with my Canon t6i and am super pleased with the outcome. The production quality is 10 fold what it use to be. Definitely a must have for any outdoor shooting!
