Hi Shaun.............

Provided the receivers came fully equipped, they should have both a:

1. Spring loaded clip for clipping onto a belt/ pocket flap/ camera handstrap etc

&

2. An adapter plate which fits under said clip and has a fitting on the back to fit into a camera hot/ cold shoe.

If I need to use two at once, one goes on the hot shoe (lives there permanently, actually) and the other goes on the handstrap - makes using the camera handheld a bit iffy but as I never do, it's no problem for me.

Chis,
I went through 16 pages of BandH wireless lav systems and all but a handfull of Sonys have the half rack space size receivers. Do the 1/2 rack space ones come with a belt/pocket clip?

Hi.........

If you look at, say, the Sennheiser EW100 G2 system (it's the only one I'm familiar with) the basic system comes with two dinky transmitters and an equally dinky clip on receiver.

From what I know, the "half/ whole rack" receivers are designed for static situations - theatres, stage, concerts etc and not for "run n'gun" videography. They also almost always require mains power to operate, a bit of an ask in wedding circumstances.

If you dive into the "Audio" forum way up the page (opening screen) you'll find these wireless systems discussed in agonising detail. Alternatively, scroll down to the bottom of any DVinfo screen, type in "wireless mics" in the box and Google the whole of DVinfo - you'll get buried alive in the response.
