Just to let everyone hear the 100 series G2 and see a few tips on how to set up the unit please, jump over to this new video Super high quality Wireless microphone set-up for church, school, corporate, or live event on Vimeo

The mic used is the HSP-2 headset, then later you hear the MKE-2. The receiver on the camera is the EW100 series. The camera is the Panasonic HPX500. There is no mixer used on this shoot.

For most mid range projects the 100 series is going to be adequate with an upgraded mic.
It's that extra 10% of quality that is going to cost 4-8 as much. If your projects demand that kind of quality, be prepared to pony up the big bucks and go for the high end zaxcom, lectro, or Sennheiser 3000/5000 series. You're talking $10,000/channel when you get up to the top of line. Sennheiser USA - 5000 Series

It's just like cars, I can get there with a Hyundai, but I can get there in style and faster with a Ferrari.

Did you use a mixer(s)?

Did you change batteries daily to be safe?

Did you have any problem with levels or clipping?

Just curious about the details.
Thanks,

Hey jeff,

I used a sound devices 442 mixer going into a Panasonic sdx900 camera. Never had any problems with clipping but the only loud noises were pots and pans clanging around. Changed batteries daily.
