Lavaier mics with battery-powered recievers

Hi there;

I'm a student filmmaker and I suddenly find a need to purchase a field mixer and some lavalier mics for my dv shoots.

Since I'll be shooting outdoors most of the time, I think I need a battery powered field mixer and wireless lavaliers that have a battery powered reciever.

The F33 is looking pretty good to me for a mixer.


I'm wondering if any of you pros out there can recommend some to me that don't cost an arm and a leg?


Thanks for any suggestions!

Mike

Try the Sennheiser G series wireless mics.

Ty:

I ordered your book.

What do you think of the Shure FP 33 field mixer?

Thanks

It's all about what you can afford. If you can afford a Sound Devices 302 or 442, I'd step up. I use the 442.

Regards,

Ty

Good calls by Ty. The Sennheiser wireless seems to be the low-end favorite: tunable, solid cases, inexpensive. Here's a nice little video about them:

I don't like the Shure. It's an older design. Noisy, the Knobs are always cracking on me, and I'm not impressed with the battery life (and the batteries become unseated easily. I don't know how many times I've had to wedge a piece of cardboard under the battery door.) Also, if you look on Shure's actual site, they have a re-branded Sound Devices mixer for sale!!

I think the story is that a couple of Shure engineers designed the fp24 on their own, and Shure didn't want it, so they started Sound Devices (that's only speculation though, I don't know that for sure).
