Hey everyone,

I just got sponsored by a company who wants me to be there Director of Social Media. I will be their host and tape at a lot of events. (Basically interviewing/talking to people at events) He asked me to let him know what HD camera we should buy, mic and lighting.

There are two options:

1. Money is no concern - we want the most high quality equipment

* What mic should the company buy - (2 types - cordless hand held mic + mics that you can pin to your clothes)

2. Cost effective model - we're trying to save money

* What mic should the company buy - (2 types - cordless hand held mic + mics that you can pin to your clothes)


Can you guys let me know what you recommend for the two options?

(I've just been using a regular DV camera and a really old mic so I don't know too much about this stuff).

Thanks soooo much!

Hello,

In replying I assume that you're looking for on camera UHF wireless mic kits.

As for the 1st option you specified, B&H Photo/Video is currently selling a kit for $1800 that will give you everything you need and allow for 2 channels of simultaneous wireless audio. The kit includes 2 wireless bodypack transmitters, 2 Voice Technologies Lavalier Mics (For future reference, Lavalier is the type that pins to your shirt), 1 Plug-in transmitter (this can be plugged in to the bottom of any corded XLR handheld microphone), 1 ENG handheld microphone, 2 recievers, a pelican case to hold it all, batteries, and accessories. That kit is: http://www.bhphotovi...100_Series.html

Option 2:
Cheaper VHF units. These units will provide okay sound quality but often do not have a way to easily change the frequency should you run into interference.
