Hello guys,

Has anyone tested the TAKSTAR SGC-598 microphone on an OM-D E-M5 camera? I need to buy a shotgun for my camera and have to decide between the Takstar and the more expensive Rode videomic pro.. I have seen reviews of both, but not used with an OMD, so was hoping might get luckier in here..I will be using it for run and gun interviews in public places (malls, streets, etc..). The takstar has +10 db whereas the rode is +20 . Some reviews preferred the Takstar when used on a gh3/gh4 , but like I said no one seems to have reviewed it with an OMD. Not sure how the camera would behave on the three permitted settings, low, med and high, since that's how much "manual" it gets on an OMD, so its like semi automatic.

Waiting for your feedback plz :)

Ok will answer myself lol :) it seems it's a bit noisier than the RODE videomic Pro, so I will get the latter and maybe if I need a backup will get the cheaper Takstar...
