Sample Video One: Range test vs. built-in camera mic (actual distance was 40 meters/130 feet).
This single item is a complete grab-and-go DSLR/pro video wireless microphone set — complete with batteries! Just take it out of the box, plug it in and turn it on and you're on-air.
Professional wireless mic systems like this used to cost $6,000, but not anymore. This complete setup runs only$550.
Specifically, I ordered the lavalliere mic set. Other sets use different microphones or transmitters or receivers, for instance, if you want a hand-held mic for in-the-field interviews or a fixed receiver.
This set is ideal for doing staged interviews, news anchoring or youBoob videos. The tiny mic has a clip to attach to the subject's collar, and run the wire invisibly inside their shirt around to the belt-clip transmitter behind them.
The receiver has a mount to slip in the accessory shoe on top of your DSLR or camcorder. The set has two cables: one with a standard 3.5mm plug for DSLRs, and another with a standard male XLR mike plug for use with pro gear.
You could spend a semester reading the manual, or just pop in the included batteries, plug in the mic, turn on the transmitter and clip it on the talent, slide the receiver on top of your camera, plug it in and turn it on, and BINGO!, it configures itself and you've got clean professional broadcast-quality audio coming through.
There's no better way to get clean audio than with the right microphone. The lavalliere mic excels for use both in-studio as well as the field because the mic is close and on the talent, so ambient noise or echoes are much less likely to interfere with getting great sound. Especially if you're just getting into making videos, this mic will get you clean, clear broadcast quality sound (what brand do you think we use in Hollywood?) without all the ambient noise and echoes.
Sennheiser has been used a lot in Hollywood for decades and decades, and they've thought of everything. For instance, even the 3.5mm plugs have screw locks so you don't lose audio in the middle of a shot. The power buttons are behind the flip-open battery doors for the same reason.It's designed in Germany, and assembled in USA. This is a very professional piece of gear for people for whom video and audio is important.
I'm impressed. I had an unexpected video shoot come up and I needed the right mic. I ordered from Adorama late Wednesday, clicked for next-day, and bingo, it was on my doorstep early Thursday morning. Bravo!
