Question About Takstar 598 Microphone

Recommended Posts

Hi, i just bought Takstar SGC-598 mic, which i saw many reviews of it, and it seems to be a decent mic for the price, it only costs, about 30 bucks, my concern is that i didnt film with the mike yet, but i wanna know if someone has it, and which settings do you use, the microphone itself has the low pass filter option and the +10db, do i need to turn on the +10db option??? or will it sound too loud filming skateboarding? Thanks

I had mine for a while, and it worked great. I never switched it to +10db when I was shooting fisheye, but when I filmed long lens, I usually switched it to +10. At +10 I barely had to move the sensitivity in-camera. I never shot with the low pass filter though, never felt the need to.
