The 1,300 Rupees Rode VideoMic Pro

by birtanpublished on August 29, 2020

Yo what's up guys it's Suraj from tech devoted and today we're taking a look at the tack star SGC 598 microphone this is a budget shotgun microphone that I was sent out for review by Tom table comm and have actually heard really good things about this mics and very excited

To try it out even though it only costs very little apparently it sounds as good as the rode videomic pro which is like the industry standard so today I'm gonna be comparing the two microphones now Before we jump

Into audio samples let's just get the similarities and differences out real quick so both these microphones the shotgun mics that have hotshoe mounts and go on top of your camera they're plug and play

And have their own battery compartments the darkstar takes a single double-a battery while the rode videomic pro takes a single 9-volt battery as a side note it's extremely hard to access the battery compartment on the road the

Design is just awful anyway the rode videomic pro has a more compact design while the talk star has a slightly longer barrel the talk star has a +10 DB boost option built in while the rode videomic pro has a plus 20 DB as well as

A minus 10 DB option buildin additionally both these mics have low-cut filters which essentially what they do is cut out frequencies below 150 Hertz so all your bass your tones such as car honks clocks ticking etc should

Be blocked out we'll get this a shot later while doing the tests but as for pricing as of this day the talk star costs 4700 rupees in Amazon but you can get it for as little as fourteen hundred rupees on Tom top it's currently on sale

Links in the description so for those of you that cannot wait to hear my verdict I'm telling you this is an amazing mic just get it the rode videomic pro on the other hand costs way over fifteen thousand rupees

Regardless of their you buy it from now one final thing you should know before we jump into the tests is audio performance will largely vary across different cameras as it really depends on the preamp inside your camera from

What I know Canon DSLRs generally don't have very good preamps Panasonic and Sony have slightly better ones I'm going to be testing these mics on my sony a6300 and the quick tip to get the best audio quality out of your camera is to

Simply go into the audio settings on your camera and the levels all the way down and then turn on the +10 DB or plus 20 DB boost on the actual mic itself they should eliminate any kind of extend now it's

Time for some so now let's go ahead and down the +10 DB boost and see a difference okay so the +10 DB boost is now down on you should be able to hear me a lot better now so now I'm going to go ahead and keep quiet for a second so

You can hear how it uses that or noise so that was the tox is 65 98 now let's go ahead and quickly switch to the rode videomic pro all right now I'm speaking to the note videomic pro do you hear a difference let me know in the comments

The talks are is roughly twenty dollars it the rode videomic pro is well over 150 so yeah again the camera is roughly five feet away from me the plus 20 DB boost is turned off let's go ahead and turn it on and see how the difference it

Makes the plus 20 DB boost is now on you should be able to hear me a lot louder just as before so yeah now I'm going to go ahead and keep quiet for a second you can hear how it deals with background noise

I'll be honest with you I didn't turn on the way I would have liked it to do this instead but this is a pretty decent scenario as well there's a lot of ambient noises lots of stuff happening but surveying cars honking and so on and

So forth so yeah right now I'm roughly three feet away from the camera and +10 DB boost and the low-cut filter turned off so now let's go ahead and turn this on and see if that makes a difference okay so now the +10 DB boost and the

Low-cut filter are turned on so you should be able to hear a difference but apart from that I don't really know what to say at this point I know you have to say something because I need to give you an audio sample but I have run out of

Stuff to say so yeah now I'm going to go ahead and keep but for a second so you can hear how about he goes with that bro noise and after that we'll switch to the rode videomic pro

All right now let's go ahead and switch to the rode videomic be ok guys so now I'm speaking into the rode videomic pro with the same settings as the TOC start the 20 DB boost is turned off and so as the low-cut filter will done this one in

Just a second but before that I want to make sure I thank my friend Anand for actually letting me borrow his rode videomicro so no it's not mine I'd never be able to drop sons cash in a microphone like this so yeah huge thanks

To him I'll link it below to chickened out also big thanks to my friend uphill helping that intro short of the texture I think it turned out really great definitely one of my best till date so

You thanks to him check him out as well both to them an amazing guys links in the description but now I'm gonna go ahead and turn on the plus 20 gave me boost and the low-cut filter and hopefully you'll be able to hopefully

We'll be able to hear a difference ok so now I'm speaking with the plus 20 DB boost and the low-cut filter turned on hopefully things sound better yeah it's pretty bendy healing a bangle today it just strained as you can see

Behind me it's still actually drizzling and Mike here might get wet but I'm taking the risk anyway so yeah now I'm going to keep back for a second so you can hear how it is it that or not

All right so that's it for this outdoor test let's move on to the next now for this last test I figured I should get my guitar out and play some chords because I know for a fact that a lot of you might be looking into a shotgun to

Record your covers songs whatever it is so here we go number four you ask yes I did get ahead good but getting back to the point I just went ahead and listened to all the

Tests that I did and boy am i amazed by the tax times performance it's honestly mine knowing how well it performs and in some instances I even thought it outperformed the rode videomic pro the only thing I wish it had is a plus 20 DB

Boost but I don't see that being a consult for most people as you can always add that extra 10 DB and post so if you are looking for some chronic budget I think the talk star is the best option there is so if you are gonna buy

The microphone be sure to use the link in the description of the channel out so yeah that about wraps it up for this video if you like what you saw consider liking and subscribing it's been sewage thanks so much for watching take it easy
