I'm curious to know what combonations of equipment stated in the title are being used in larger budgeted feature productions. Or basicly what the 'pro's in Hollywood' use when it comes to production audio on locations regarding lavalier microphones.
My biggest concern is that I don't want to purchase for example... a lav mic that has a unique end and won't fit into a certain transmitter, or needs a specific adapter for a specific type of transmitter. I really want to try and avoid any logistical oversites that may arise when using combonations of equipment that don't come in a kit.
I've done a bit of research on what lav mics are popular, and are widely used. I've also found info on transmitter/receivers that are popular, and widely used. I just haven't found all the info and logistics in one place. So that's kind of what I'm looking for here.
Just to share, I'm looking at lav mics along the lines of a Tram TR50, Sanken COS-11D, or possibly even the DBA's 4061 or 4071.
As for transmitter/recievers I've heard good things about Lectrosonics series, such as UCR411 kits, and 401, and also Sennheiser 2000ENG-SK, or their G3 series.
So to reiterate, What pieces work well together, and what are the necessary tools (such as adaptors) required to make them work harmoniously? As for the use of these, they will be primarily in production audio, but I would also use them in recording sound effects for post-production.
Pre-emptive Thanks! expert advise is alwasy much appreciated.
