I am shooting a one-day short with a Moviecam compact this Thursday and one of our shots is a five minute long hand-held shot following someone around a house. The director wants a video tap and a playback package and I don't want to be tethered (98% of the shoot is handheld and he wants to watch everthing through the monitor). What is the best transmitter solution bearing in mind we are on a tight budget? Any enlightenment is much aprreciated.

Usually something like a Modulus is used:

For one day, that would be a rental obviously.

Hi,

On a tight budget, you can go and buy one of those microwave video senders that's designed to relay TV pictures around your house. They're okay. Sometimes.
