24Feb Azden 330LT UHF Stereo Wireless system Audio test

While I’ve been using this set for awhile, I haven’t really published any audio tests so here’s the first. The audio track below was recorded directly into the Panasonic Gh4 as well as the Canon t2i running magic lantern. I’ve noted this in the audio recording and i’ll also say it right here. For whatever […]

23Feb Azden 330LT UHF Stereo Wireless system – First impressions

I normally use Sennheiser G series wireless units, but I’ve always been attracted to the idea of a dual channel receiver system. While I’m not as excited about the all plastic build of the Azden 330LT UHF system, it is really nice that the system only requires one dual channel receiver on camera instead of […]

26Jan Monoprice 2.4Ghz Wireless system Audio tests & the Aspen Lav

I had a little bit of time to test the Monoprice 2.4Ghz wireless system this weekend and it works. The design choices, connector types, and labels aren’t exactly straight forward, and it seems as though the volume controls only affect the headphone output, but for a price of $89, it works. One of the major […]

21Jan RodeLink 2.4Ghz Wireless mic Kit

It looks like Monoprice isn’t the only one getting into the 2.4Ghz audio transmitter game. Rode just announced the Rodelink wireless film kit, the setup includes a Rode Lav and 2.4Ghz audio transmitter/receiver kit with camera mounting and locking audio cables for $399. Here are the specs for the Rodelink units: Series II 2.4GHz digital transmission 128-bit encrypted signal […]

19Mar Wireless stereo audio with the Tascam DR-60d field recorder

As promised here is a full overview of the Tascam DR-60d wireless setup. All of the audio in this video (minus the intro) was recorded via a Wi audiolink stereo wireless transmitter. I’ve had very good luck with this setup in the field and this method has dramatically reduced the number of times I’ve needed […]

13Apr MXL FR-500WK Portable UHF Wireless Audio System

MXL (owned my Marshall) has been releasing relatively decent low price condenser microphones for the last 7 or 8 years. Their product line has mostly been known for it’s low price and acceptable sound quality. MXL’s condensers are often the units I choose for overhead drum mics, because they’re only a 100 or so dollars […]

09Aug Kodak Zi8: cheap camera, good lighting, and good audio equals good results

More from the new DSLR FILM NOOB Channel. The number one question that comes in is “What camera should I buy?”. That question is usually followed up with a list of expensive cameras and a request to recommend the best camera out of the lineup. The answer isn’t as easy as saying you should by (insert camera name […]

13Feb Samson Airline Micro Tested with the Rode Videomic

The audio I recorded during the Samson Airline Micro test seemed to add a little bit of bass making the audio sound a little bit muddy. The system also seemed to have a slight audio hiss to it when I was testing. Neither of these things were bad enough to be a deal breaker, but I […]

20Mar Bluetooth test with a Lavalier

I don’t normally do two videos in one day, but I received so many request for a test using a lavalier with the Bluetooth transmitter setup that I decided to give it a try. It hadn’t accrued to me that this could be used as a lavalier setup since most of my plans focused around the stereo […]

16Mar Lavalier Windscreen with Adhesive Mount.

The picture makes it look like some kind of retro heart monitor, but in practice it can be a very handy little device. The Rycote Undercover Lavalier windscreen works with most Lavalier microphones and provides both windscreen protection and an adhesive back so you aren’t forced to fold up a shirt for a clip on. […]
