Here's what happened....I was filming a swim team practicing with their coach. As they were swimming laps, the coach was following and commenting on their strengths and weakness. The coach was outfitted with the wireless mic and it worked flawlessly. As he walked to the end of the pool...100' away from me, his voice never faltered. It sounded great. Then, while still filming, I got the idea to change the audio from the "Single" (wireless mic only) setting to the "Mix 5.1 ch" (camera's audio w/ the wireless mic used as a 'center' microphone) setting. I didn't realize what I had just done but it was obvious during playback.
While reviewing the video, I got to the point where I changed the audio settings and I was so disappointed. I could no longer hear the coach at the other end of the pool... I heard more of the camera's audio and little if none of the coach. I should have left it on the "Single" setting. It was my own fault but a good lesson learned.
As the other reviewers stated, the microphone's battery life is short so bring a spare or two with you. I had about 5-7 minutes warning from the low battery indicator before it died. Overall, I would definitely recommend this unit.
* The mic's battery life is too short (about 30-45 minutes is the most I got out of a fresh new battery)
* The size of the mic is a bit too big to hide on a subject. You can't avoid having it in the frame and the bright blue light is also not helping hiding it. Would be nice to have an option to attache a wired mic to it so you can have a small neck mic connected to the device and have the device clipped to the belt or something like it on the subject.
Quality excellent. I use this to record cello in lessons and concerts. Does a fine job in 5.1 mode.
Wind sock REALLY works... and hides that bright blue light without diminishing essential sound quality.
Interesting that using Vegas Movie Studio Platinum 9.0, the Mic channel is the "Front Left & Right" channels, rather than the Center channel as described in the literature. Used this mic in presence of 802-11n LAN without adverse effect.
this is a definitely good product for its purpose this is not for interviews where you need ambient noise reduction because this absorb all the ambient sound. but if you are looking to use it for interviews and get some natural sounds from the environment then its a good deal
