Hello Everyone,

I have an interesting question. My coworker and I do some short amateur videos and product reviews for stuff we sell. Nothing fancy, I have a DSL, a Zoom H4N, and some wired lapel mics.

This works fine for the most part, but we also go to product shows where we want to interview the factories. With thousands of people around, taking the time to set someone up with a lapel mic is a bit of a hassle.

We are looking for a WIRELESS handheld microphone that I would ideally be able to connect the receiver to my H4N while I am behind the camera a few feet away.

The problem is all the receivers I see are huge and generally require AC power, which I wont have as we walk the showroom floor.

Any ideas? I am also thinking a cardioid microphone might work best since we will have lots of background noise.

Thank you for the help!!

Most of the major microphone manufacturers have wireless systems for video. Here's a few I found:

http://www.audio-technica.com/...dcbed6cfd/index.html

Good luck.

I can vouch for the Rode Filmmaker kit but before you spend the money you might want to check to see if you have a local AV rental house and can rent/try some options out to make sure they will work

I should have also mentioned we were trying to stay under $200 for the microphone and transmitter/receiver.

I did find some nice options, but most of them were in the $500-$1500 range.

The goal would be to have a wireless handheld microphone that has a receiver I could connect to the XLR plugs on my Zoom H4N. I think the Zoom also has 1/4" plugs, but not certain.

Get a Zoom H1 and record the audio directly to it. Combine in post.
