[[VIDEOID:de4f1f7dcda2eebd47f8232106c06fc]] These are very easy to use. I got them mostly for using with lapel mic, but the included handheld microphone is going to come in handy and sounds good too. I wanted to try this with one of the microphones I've been using for years that I knew sounded pretty good. I paid around 30 bucks for it. In order for me to use that microphone I needed a adapter. My previous mic had one line, the one included with this set is 4 lines (referring to the lines on the metal jack that plugs into the input). I actually had to use 2 adapters as it's kind of tricky for me to find. I don't care to much for adapters and if I do use them i will tape them tight with electrical tape to avoid what happened at the end of the video (static). As for the mic that is included it is omni-directional and pretty sensitive to noise. I tried using a cable level line to see if I could take down the background hiss, and was successful a bit, but the range is good. In the video I did not alter the sound in anyway. It is what came directly from the movo plugged into the GH4. I'm definitely going to be do some more testing with these just to see if I can tweak them a hair more and they'd be perfect, and for the price.. Please give the video a thumbs up if it helps.

Not the most robust construction but sounds way better than my camcorder's built-in mic
By M. Erb
[[VIDEOID:c01f63a3c42daa8dfbbb1e77d02637b7]] This is a review of the Movo WMIC60 Wireless Microphone. I was provided with a free sample for evaluation.
For the money you are getting a moderately good sounding yet somewhat fragile wireless microphone system that will work well for casual use.
Included is a transmitter, receiver, handheld microphone, lavalier microphone, 2 earphones (one of which has an inline microphone) and a short connecting cable that is used to connect the receiver to your camcorder/mic input. The transmitter has a plastic clip on its back and that makes it possible to clip it to a pocket. The Receiver has a Hot/Cold Shoe mount with a tripod mount thread as well. If your camera does not have a hot/cold shoe, you can always get a stabilizing handheld camera grip which generally will have a cold shoe mount as well as a nice platform to attach your camera/camcorder.
The microphones are not directional so will pick up nearby sound quite readily. You need to take that into consideration.
The Transmitter and Receiver each use 2-AAA batteries for power and there is no option to use external power. Battery life is about 3.5 hours for the transmitter and 4 hours for the receiver. It's always a good idea to have extra, fully charged batteries on hand ready to go if needed.
The low-cut filter on the Transmitter and Receiver works as expected.
Range is quite variable depending on the room or space that you are in and the number or type of obstacles in between the transmitter and receiver. I've got a 1700 sq ft house and can wander around on my main floor and upstairs without getting any dropouts. With a clear line of sight, you might get up to 100 feet or more. With obstacles or interference, it could be much less. This system uses the crowded 2.4GHz band.
I'm quite happy with the sound quality I get for my casual use of this. It's definitely an improvement over the built-in mic of my camcorder.

the sound of the lens auto focus function ruins video audio and having a wireless setup that works over such great distances is
By stephen dodd
Bought this system so that I could use my Nikon D5300 DSLR for video. Without an external microphone, the sound of the lens auto focus function ruins video audio and having a wireless setup that works over such great distances is definitely a plus! In addition, I was very pleasantly surprised to find that this unit is full duplex, bi-directional! This allows the subject of the video and the photographer to communicate over the link during video recording.
