Great video! Just got one last week
Great review - simple, short, and to the point. Thanks!
Hello! Could I use this microphone to record with a smartphone?
Hi can I use this for android smartphones is it good for recording music??? Thanks
Are you still using this microphone?
Good review but bad videos quality man
The sound has a small distortion, which RODE doesn´t has.
Finally, someone that does all the angles to hear all the sounds.
Maybe I missed it, but what was the mic's settings for this video you did?
It does sound really smooth~
thanks for the help!
Thanks! That has become a great help.
no this is not great sound I hear white noise throughout and the proof if a deadcat inside would help.
Lot of hiss coming out of this microphone, right?
pretty sweet review.. thanks
Casey brought me here
0:06 Shotgum hahaha
For some reason my Vp83 had a different screw built into it
1:50 you mean high-pass filter.
does it fit on the canon powershot sx530 hs?
My VP83F allows me to use the mic as a digital recorder for talking heads. Mount the mic on a stand just out of frame and a couple of feet from the talent for good close proximity recording. Shoot them with a telephoto from as far away as you like for a great compressed shot and good audio.
You keep name dropping like that guy is suppose to mean something to anyone who has never seen him. Sell the product not the person.
Thanks for the info - Love the way the VP83F comes with the ability to record audio separately - Just brought one myself! :)
Buen vídeo. Un saludo.
I now own two VP83F mic's... It's a brighter sound than the Rhode...
Headphone jack, separate audio with shotgun mic which means I still also have access to the camera's stereo mic for "nat" sound and it could be used on older camera as well. VP83F
The VP83 sounds more like that handheld you used here.
Rode all the way.
After 1 year researching on youtube, I came to the conclusion that Casey Neistat, somehow found the best of the best each equipment to a vlogger. I once thought he was wrong, and I could film with my Canon T5i on the streets and have the same quality. I was wrong ! I need a camera with dual pixel, because T5i and old ones sucks on real time focus, so, a 70D or 80D is the best ( Coincidently that´s what he choose ), Then, I thought about microphones. I discovered that for daily vlogs, you have to have something robust, which doesn´t break easily, so, Shure VP-83 is the best one. Then, I thought about lens, and the right choice could be either Canon 10-18 STM or 10-22 USM, which are the ones he uses. So, I´m purchasing these equipment. Perhaps he had some advice choosing his ones, I don´t think Casey know much about equipment.
When people use Casey's name to get clicks.
I ALWAYS notice the high distortion on VP-83 mics when compared to Rode ones. When the sound gets too hot, I always have the impression that audio is clipping. It´s a solid mic, but the audio sucks. I have to go for Rode, even if it´s a damn weak, fragile mic, the sound is better.
VP83 for the win!
What light are you using?
it isi really good, but super annoying with the Sony a6300
Just ordered the *Shure VP83* ...upgrading all my equipment including camera. Time to step things up a notch...thanks for the helpful review and information. Very helpful....For what I'm doing, I think the VP83F is more than I'll need.
The headphone jack, the audio recorder, are all a plus to this pro producer. Definitely going to get the Shure VP83F !!
For getting started, which I'm working on, I'd go for the VP83. But having the money for it, I'd get the VP83F because so far I've been on both sides of the camera.
Thank you so much! That has become a great help!!
Hi Sean (or anyone else that can help). I have watched MANY of your videos, and would even say that I study them. Thank you so much for all of the great advice! As you could imagine I am trying to grow my channel which is new and small. I am considering doing a video on tech backpacks. I have one that I purchased recently, but also want to link others below the video. I see that you talk about "Casey Neistat's Microphone" here. Do you think it is ok if I link backpacks that UrAvgConsumer has reviewed below my video, say in my video that I got the recommendations from watching his video, and include in the title "with recommendations from UrAvgConsumer" in the title?
Your channel is very professional, and I know that you take integrity seriously. However, I see that you have used this tactic, and even took it a step further by using a clip from Casey's Video. Do you need to get approval from him for these things? Is there any chance of getting a copyright strike for doing this? I want to appear professional and not tacky, but also want to grow my channel.
Just have to say that I've really been enjoying your videos, and subscribed to your channel after watching this one. It was super-helpful -- since I've been working on an oral family history project, and need a good shotgun mic. (The lavs I was using are getting to complicated for more than a one-on-one interview.) I love Casey's work, and I appreciate this video taking a more in-depth look into what mic he uses. I'm thinking about getting the basic Shure VP83 -- based on the comparison you did alone.
Great video, would you choose this over the Rode video mic NTG? This mic sounds great though.
Does this mic work with a Nikon D7100?
Could a rode deadcat fit on the vp83 microphone?
Do you think that this mic would work at nine feet in a studio environment?
if you shake your mic do you hear a rattle in the VP83?
Between this microphone and the XY mic from the Zoom H6 ? What you suggest ?
👍 awesome job!! So incredibly helpful!
Why do you have such a professional audio equipment?😍 Do you need it for your job or how do you get to this nice stuff?
it the best of comparison!! i love when you say and silence
Sure is the best
Shure is definitely hotter, brighter, and slightly sibilant, but the Rode is very thin in comparison. I'd go Shure every time.
Wow tough choice. Just listed in detail with some Sony WH1000 MX3 phones and I agree the Rode has better sound with no EQ fixes, but the Shure is much quieter and has better rejection which is pretty important. Fix one in post or fix the other with an acoustical shield, hmm..
Thank you, I wonder how many people were like me and were convinced you were gonna go with the Shure. I even ordered one 3/4 of the way through the video, but then got my cancel in time so I could order the Rode. Phew! Glad I listened to the VERY END. lol
U look annoyed bruh
Dave could you compare the vp83 against the videomic ntg?
Both sound good but have a different character. The Rode has more bottom end. The Shure has more of a broadcast-mic quality to it. I guess it comes down to preference.
The shure sounded a lot clearer to me Sr., is it just me?
Hi Dave or anyone in the know, what wire can I use to extend the mic from the camera closer to the subject for the Shure?
wow, the shure has some hisssssssssssssss. the sound quality alone makes up my mind
I like the Rode, almost no "hiss" sound. Sounds more professional to me! Thanks for the review!
Which microphone is good for android smartphones for recording music off house speakers??? Indoors thanks
I wonder why they don't sell those shure mics in the stores
Which do you prefer between Shure VP83 and Rode Stereo VideoMic Pro Rycote for my use: my sons, birthday, excursions.
I prefer a natural and surrounding sound. THANK YOU
Shure knows what they're doing, what they did with their mic is roll-off the frequencies outside of the standard speech range; this helps with all the things it has advantages in (off-axis, wind, RF, etc), plus where he records these, because it's an non-ideal room it has way too much reverb naturally which I think sound horrible, he may think that makes it sound fuller but that's really just a lot of echo filling out that lower end. Most run-and-gun shotguns are designed similar, since they're setup to record speech in less than ideal environments; they aren't traditional condenser mics where you want to grab all the freq you can, they're designed to operate in noisy environments, to cut out non-speech elements, to cut through wind and off-axis noise.
I don't think the Rode amplified those lower ranges so much as they just didn't roll them off. If you're in a perfectly-ideal environment like an isolated recording booth, I probably wouldn't choose that Shure either, but for what it does and its intended purpose, I'd choose it any day of the week over the Rode mic.
There's a lot more whitenoise (hiss) in the Sure recording. Usually this comes from the camera preamp having to amplify a weak signal too much. I wonder if this means signal level is weaker on the Sure. Was the mic on +20dB setting?
Just boost the low range on the Shure, and cut the 16khz... and it will be perfect
