I think it might be the ebay knock-off. Anyway, with that mic plugged into the transmitter and the receiver plugged into my on-board mixer (Sony nx7OU cam) the sound was much better than the shotgun mounted to the camera (backup audio).
My question is, is there a better mic I could use for this setup? Is what I am doing unorthodox? Do people usually use a zoom H1 or similar mic outputted to the transmitter?
ps, I know I can just throw a zoom out there and sync up the audio in post.
