Re: mounting wireless

So, we might need to know what model of receiver you're trying to mount to what model of camera here.
LR? SR? UCR?

Otherwise we can only really recommend gaff tape, velcro, or zip ties as the only truly universal solution.

Lectrosonics does sell shoe mount / 1/4"-20 threaded brackets application specific for their models.
There are also generic ones (such as bracket1.com) that are a metal back with a wrap around velcro that should fit most 'pack' style receivers.

Re: mounting wireless

I mount my AVX receiver in the XLR jack :-)

Once I had to run an old Sennheizer thing...i plugged it in the XLR and clipped the wire belt clip to the back of the shotgun cable. :-D

Have you had issues trying to power it at the same time (over USB) while the receiver is on? I found I could only get clean audio with the receiver running on its internal battery.

Re: mounting wireless

Mini ball-head cold-shoe mount plus a spring-loaded cellphone tripod mounting bracket. Works like a charm on my Sony receiver on an FS5

Re: mounting wireless

So if you're trying to mount the UCR100 on a small camera with a hot shoe, you could try something like:

K-Tek K-SPT Shoe Plate Mount
Just add velcro to your RX and the plate

Rycote Wireless Universal Receiver Camera Bracket MkII
A couple velcro straps and a mount that

I've worked with both of those; they're fine. There are other similar options. You can find them through the links above (not endorsing B&H, but an easy way to see what various vendors are offering).

Re: mounting wireless

I tested the AVX on my old X180 that had a full size always powered USB-A port, and never heard any interference...the red charge light stayed on confirming it was charging while in use.
