Excerpt: I needed a wireless mic solution within a small budget. This system has been great for my need and I look forward to using and testing the full aspect for my videography. I agree that the receiver is large especially for weddings and clipping on the bride/groom but other than that this is a great addition to capturing great sound.
Excerpt: I use this for documentaries and Family Gatherings.Excellent sound quality.Mic is large; don't confuse it with a lapel mic. Use Lithium batteries if you're going to be recording for an extended period. As with all Canon products, nothing they sell is cheap.
Summary: The microphone worked very well. I put batteries in, plugged the transmitter into my Canon HF R52 camcorder, turned both units on, and voila! It worked like a charm. I used the mic to take 51 minutes of AVCHD video. The mic never skipped a beat and has better audio quality than the built-in mic. One review reported short battery life, so I made sure I used new AA cells especially for powering digital devices - and I inserted new batteries just before the taping session.
Summary: Really good sound. My voice is very quiet. I needed to make an instructional video and could not keep speaking loud enough without straining. This helped me speak at a normal level and it was very clear.
