Works great, good price!

I have had this mic for two years and use it on my Cannon GL2. The quality feels very professional. I have had no problems at all. I have used it to record video for my kids school art docent program. It is far better than the on board mic. The subject is isolated with little background noise.

The only thing I could complain about is loosing the foam wind cover which is very small and pops off easily.

Mic does not work

If I hook another mic to the system it works fine but does not with the mic that came with it. I have tried boosting the levels on the camera, swapping channels, and switching from MIC to Line input to no avail. (Originally in MIC position and reverted back) I even tried hooking the mic up to my computer to see what I would get. If I put the level up to 100% and the Boost up full I barely get any level from the mic.

Great wireless lavalier system!

If you're not after highly-pro results but only want decent results, this is the way to go. I had to order another one and a total 2 more with the hand-held mic, because I was impress with its performance and it's very affordable price. You just can't go wrong with this one.

Good Sound on a Budget

By

Reasonable-priced and ideally suited for on-camera interviews. Much better sound than your average built-in camcorder microphones.

Good for what it is

By

I have had the opportunity to use both the Sennheiser EW-100 and this Audio-Technica system and for pure audio quality and build quality there is no contest - the Sennheiser is a superior product but also carries a matching price tag.The Audio-Technica is a little noisy, and has no gain settings, so can sometimes come out with a bit low levels. The antenna on the receiver can be a bit of a [*] as it's pretty hefty. There are no threaded mini jacks so please handle with care.However, the Audio-Technica has decent range (tried it at least 40ft through walls before the reception got a bit finicky), light weight and dead easy to use - and it's less than 20% of the price of the Sennheiser!Bottom line: Can't complain for the money!
