Got a pair of Lectrosonic 185's with Shure lavs (as well as the stock lavs available through Lectrosonic).

One of the units also has a plug-on transmitter for a handheld mic.

Mounted on the back of a Canon XL1s with the aid of Velcro and a short equipment strap from REI. It's secure but easily dismounted for battery changes.

2-Azden 500UDR-Sony ECM44 lavalier and (1) Azden wireless handheld mic. Lots of freqs to chose from. Velcro'd to back of battery on PD150's or velcro'd to bracket I made for shoulder brace when I use that. Works well.

2 Lectro cr187 systems, one with bodypack and one with plug-on... I use trams primarily, one with a detachable p/s that works as an xlr/ta5f adapter so that I can use the plug-on as a bodypack when I want to shoot two people with two lavs. Although hiding the plug-on/xlr is way harder then hiding the miniscule bodypack (which fits in the smallest pocket)...

The benefit of having a plug-on is for wireless boom and also wireless handheld dynamic (like a news mic) which comes in extremely handy... One of my favorite shows is "The Daily Show" and they do these segments with the news guys doing man on the street stuff and you'll notice the wireless handhelds that they use... I do a lot of that 'cause it's fun, easy, and very effective.

I never mount my receivers on my cam (yet), rather I put them in jacket/vest pockets and run 5' xlrs to the cam or I put them in an apron under my tripod head and run the xlrs up from there... keeps the excess weight off the cam, and my arms...

Pretty soon people are going to just associate my name with a Lectro cr187 'cause I NEVER pass up an opportunity to tell people how happy I am with these.

Sennheiser Evolution 100 system with omni lav mic. I also use a handheld mic with the unit too.

Oops, my wife says that I have to got get a haircut. So much for the Willie Nelson look.

I use 2, Azden WMS-Pro, setups. I put one on the groom, and the other use varies. I have used it with my shotgun, my minidisk, and sometimes just hang the lav somewhere near a speaker, if needed.

2 Sennheiser Evolution systems. Inexpensive given the quality and signal reliability. Each system works in a different frequency range so I can easier avoid local interferrence or use both at the same time with no chance of landing on the same channel.

AKG Acoustic PR81. Very light and very small and fits nicely in my PD150. I put it in the flat surface in the right side of the lens. Check this out, it's a four level diversity UHF wireless lavalier mic.
