Re: Camera Mounted Wireless Lav Mics for HD100?

Now that the setup has moved to a stage (?), do you really need wireless?

You can get into a pair of wired premium lavs or earset mics for way less than wireless!

If there will be 60 people in the room and therefore a PA system, I'd highly recommend earset, like the Countryman E6i over lavs. So much more gain before feedback in a *very* nice sounding mic!

Will check into the Countryman E6i. Thanks for the info.

We are adding an MC in-between the interviews and I'm sure he will be using a wireless handheld so that could pose a problem.

Re: Camera Mounted Wireless Lav Mics for HD100?

Just thought I would post a recent find in case anyone has used this with 2 lavs..

Azden WR32-Pro Dual-Channel VHF Wireless Receiver for DSLR Camera WR32-PRO

And also this one but it has a 3.5 mini output and would need to go to XLR onboard the camera and would require adapter.

Re: Camera Mounted Wireless Lav Mics for HD100?

Hi Lisa,

I would not recommend using that Azden VHF mic at all. One it is VHF, that can be problematic. Two, it is only $200.00 because it is made cheaply. There is no new tech there to lower the cost. In fact, it is old tech.

Re: Camera Mounted Wireless Lav Mics for HD100?

Thinking of also checking into using wireless handhelds which might be less than the lavs. Getting down to the line and running out of time since event is in a month. So I better find something soon :)

Donald,

Thanks for the reminder. Did some research on the Zoom H1 recorder. Thinking on recorders TOO because I can use them for podcasting easily.

Re: Camera Mounted Wireless Lav Mics for HD100?

I have still got a VHF Azden mic in my case Steve but I don't use it any more. I did try it out a few months ago and it worked remarkably well. I ended up using it to do one way comms between myself and a 2nd shooter and it worked very well too in that role.

Using a recorder for interviews is not my cup of tea! Lip sync is critical as the cameras are on the faces most of the time so if your recorder is running a fraction fast or slow on a long piece of talking it will look horrible when the mouth doesn't match the audio. I still would opt for a cheap 2.4ghz wireless system ..at that range you are unlikely to have any issues at all.

Re: Camera Mounted Wireless Lav Mics for HD100?

Located a few wireless handheld systems.

Worse case scenario I don't purchase camera mounted. I can also have it for in the small studio area I have and later buy a camera mounted system for mobile work. The un-mounted are certainly less in price.

Camera mounted is preferred though but at least there are options. I even thought about buying a boom mic/pole and have a boom op to assist.

Re: Camera Mounted Wireless Lav Mics for HD100?

Lisa, I have a setup that would fit to a T what you need. I know it would because I used it for more 2 person interviews than I could count.
Since I'm retired I'm looking to off all of my gear in a group or piecemeal. What's your budget for a wireless that can handle 2 people with really good lags and great sound control.

Re: Camera Mounted Wireless Lav Mics for HD100?

I appreciate all of the help I have been receiving from the great people in this forum. I received lots of options on models that work.

I'm having to purchase a few other pieces of equipment to go with my gear and in dong this I think I will have to sacrifice buying the system I would like to have and use a UHF lav system but not camera mounted. I have a lav that I used on a project that works as a single lav on a receiver. Although I had to use an adapter to change it over to XLR it worked out nicely. I came across a few systems recently that have two lavs and each has an XLR output so I can go direct to camera from the receiver with 2 XLR's to record each on it's on channel in camera. Not the camera mounted setup I want but it will work and provide good sound which is the most important part. For my mobile ENG type of projects I'll stick with my cabled mics for now. Unless, something changes, this is most likely the plan for now.

Seth, I see you are correct about the wired lavs. A lot less than the wireless. And we are working in a small space at the front of the room so this is certainly an option worth looking into. Thanks for the info.

If anyone has any suggestions on wired lavs that you have used successfully, let me know. Any specific brands work best? I can take direct to camera XLR using the 2 channels in-camera.
