Hi Ricky,

I bought a Sennheiser EW100 G2 wireless system at northernsound.net for $413 (item #EW122PG2). The camera mounting kit was an additional $17 (item #CA2). It is a great price for a terrific system.

The company is in PA so you won't pay sales tax and their shipping is free.

Much good luck to you.

Make sure the EW 100 G2 (generation 2) comes with the 3.5 mm plug on the end of the cable. The G1 did - just not sure if the G2 does.

Thanks alot for the help, but I'm looking for something a little cheaper. I just purchased a new computer so i'm kind of tight on cash. I was looking for something in the $200-$300 price change. Any other suggestions?

Try this one at B&H SAUML350U1
The page link is http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/cont...ughType=search

I have three Samson (for my wedding videography)and they never let me down. It's a top mic at a friendly price.
Samson also has a smaller one(i which also) but it has a smaller range.

Regarding mounting on the camera: I use velcro - either on the top of the handle or at the back of the battery.

Oh, i forgot. This one has XLR out, so you have to use soem kind of adaptor.

Yes, I was going to suggest Samson as I had found them to be small, light and good. The one I used (www.samsontech.com) was the Airline UHF
wireless system and I had the AL1 Presentation Transmitter which I
plugged my sony tie mic into. Also with that I had the AM1 receiver which I plugged into my camera.

I velcro the receiver to the flat panel at the front of the lens - the rectangular surface that houses the VAP electronics and mechanics.

Ok well I think I decided to just hold off for a bit and save for the more expensive set-up that Stephanie posted. I found this:

on BH Photo.com. Is that all I will need to use the system?
