Top customer reviews
Comes with connectors that are compatible with most major cameras. 9v battery for the transmitter and receiver. I found no issues getting it to work with my Canon ZR-70. For practical purposes, the sound quality was as good as anything I've seen produced on the web where I know the audio equipment being used is of much higher caliber. This device seemed to hold its own and do a very good job providing close, crisp audio in a situation where it would be nice to roam free.
The distance was not tested. I did not go 300 yards out to see how far it would go. Most videos I've done are in close proximity to the camera but would be detrimental without some kind of on-person audio setup. Having a wireless option makes this possible and enhances the video without providing so many features that is otherwise overkill for the task at hand.
I'm positive on this review as I found the setup easy and the audio quality to be very good without any noticeablestatic or interference.
Audio-Technica ATR288W Wireless Microphone System (Includes ATR35s, ATR20)
I have uploaded a video review that is hopefully more informative and demonstrative of this system and its performance. Please take a look at it if you have the time, it might help you with your purchase decision.
I plan to use this system indoors and outdoors - and sometimes in harsh environments. I may do some updates to this review over time, to note (good or bad) how it performs over time and different projects.
Product information says to expect an average of 8 hours for the battery life. The use of the system requires two 9-volt batteries (one each in the receiver and the transmitter).
There was a problem with the items I received, versus the items described on the Amazon product page. The kit was described as coming with two microphones, one handheld and one lavalier. The wireless kit I received contained the handheld mic, but no lavalier mic. I asked for a replacement. The new kit arrived. Still no lavalier mic.
It's still a good value. Just don't expect the lavalier mic to be included. Order the Audio-Technica ATR-3350 separately, and you'll be happy with the outcome: two good mics and a decent wireless system.
I know that some people have had great results with this product, so it is possible that the one I received was defective. However, the unit I purchased gave great audio quality only if you were operating under ideal conditions - within 5 to 10 feet of the video camera, and had the wire from the lapel mic (which serves as the antenna for the body mic) between the subject and the camera. As soon as there was anything between the wire and the camera the audio was full of static, hissing, and noise. If you moved further from the camera, the noise level became so high that the audio was totally unusable for even home movie productions.
Under typical conditions where the subject is moving or occasionally turning away from the camera the audio is noisy, and full of static, and unusable.
I have returned the ATR-288W to Amazon, and will search for a suitable substitute.
I was using the ATR-288W with a Canon HV40 video camera,
