Thanks for this.

I recently had to do a quick and dirty shoot and didn't have a lav available where I was, so I bought a cheap wired lavalier from Radio Shack for twenty-five bucks.

It worked like a charm and sounded great. Just goes to show that you don't have to spend a fortune to get good sound these days.
