I am producing a documentary on a very small budget and am looking to purchase a wireless lapel microphone. I am pretty camera savvy but when it comes to microphones I have no clue. So what I'm after is a wireless lapel mic that I can use with my Canon 7D. I'm hoping to spend under AU$400. What would you recommend?
You would probably get better results with an audio recorder just out of frame. Even a great mic run into a 7D won't sound so great. Tascam DR 40 is a great one, and only $200.
I have one of these... not as nice as a 55B wired, but if you need a wireless mic, this is close to your range. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/553681-REG/Sony_UWP_V1_3032_UWP_V1_Wireless_Lavalier_Microphone.html
And I would run it to the Zoom, not the camera.
