    I wonder how the unit will work with a lav with a higher sensitivity. Rode rates their Lavalier Go mic at -35dB (that's the model listed as an accessory for the GO II). That's pretty high....

    Impressive!

    How does it sound with your OST lav if you crank up the gain on the transmitter? So you wouldn't need as much gain on your Sony camera?

    Thanks for your report!

    I just googled that quote about "transparent" lavs. It's from a post by Fred Ginsburg, the guy who wrote the article Paul F linked to and (most likely) the Audio-Technica article you linked to (see...

    That's interesting. Fred Ginsburg, who wrote that article, does (or at least did) a lot of work with/for Audio-Technica, and I'll guess (without reading closely) that he wrote the article on AT's...

    My -hunch- is that the BMD camera has two filters, to save space. So there's a 2-stop and a 4-stop, and they can be combined for 6 stops. But I don't really know.

    Here's the specs from BMD's site....

    Based on the inexpensive tiny 32-bit recorders from Zoom and Tentacle, I'll guess there's an inexpensive chip (or collection of chips) that'll do 32-bit recording with a low power draw. And the...

    SF, let us know how the system works for you. I'm especially interested in range when running a lav to a transmitter attached behind the talent so the signal has to pass through the body.

    Thanks...

    Yes, but that marketing explains why some potential buyers are upset about the AF. So their complaints are understandable, if misguided.

    That bump between the top two buttons is most likely the lav. The wearer would have sounded better with the lav lower, and that'd make it easier to match his and his victim's sound. His tracks could...

    I would be surprised if they weren't omni lavs. I own 18 lavs (currently) and only have two directional lavs. I only use them if there's a ton of ambient noise or potential issues with phase...
