Works as advertised

  • Excerpt: I have not used this product other than to test it for functionality. Depending on RF interference factors in the area where it is to be used will determine whether or not ths FM-band will be enough or I should move over to a UHF product. Budgetary constraints dictated I get this product. I plan to use it with my DSLR for talking head standups, etc.

Exactly what I needed

  • Excerpt: You can't beat this mic system for the price! The sound quality that it picks up is very good. I've used it both indoors, in a conference room setting, as well as outdoors in open pasture. Picked up great sound from both parties in an interview. I'm pleased with the nice, solid clip. I've had others that break off easily. The small receiver is easily clipped onto the camera handle if you don't want to use the mounting tapes.

Crisp Sound w/o breaking the bank

  • Excerpt: Was looking for something to record my DIY's and conduct interviews for my site. We cover big events with lots of noise to interviews sitting side by side. In both situation (controlled noise and uncontrolled noise) the handheld mic and clip on worked perfectly. I did have to make sure not to pick up static, but with the ear bud attachment to the transmitter, this made it all possible. Also purchased a mic flag to attached to the mic and it all worked out great.

Functional lav, hand-held useless

JasonVideo, B&H Photo
9 December 2013
  • Excerpt: This is a pretty good "you get what you pay for" unit. The hand-held mic is so poorly made that it's not even usable. Lots of loose connection sounding noise. The quality of the transmitter and receiver feel good, not great. The lav sounds good with some minor noise. There are only 2 VHF frequencies to choose from so if those don't work you're out of luck. All that said, it's useful if you have a camera that accepts a mini-plug input.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Price, Versatile
  • Cons: Bad Hand-held Mic, Limited Functions, Poor Sound Quality

Good for the money

  • Excerpt: Good system for the price. I used the handheld mic for on camera interviews and got some low popping sounds at regular intervals - perhaps I should have switch to the other frequency. Not very well made, the lavaliere microphone windscreen was lost the first 20 minutes of use. Overall good for the money.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Versatile
  • Cons: Breaks Easily
