Don't buy that. That's not good at all even at this price. I'd much rather buy a 27 dollar mic from TAKSTAR. That's a super cheap one, with about 700 reviews on Amazon and with average 4.0 rating.

And I swear you'd get a better mic than this one. Pretty much the same as Rode Pro (I have both of them and cannot tell the difference, except for the price)

Hey there, the mic isnt the same one RODE sells by itself for 250-350 that is slightly different with more gear.. So if you are vlogging and want to get more than 20ft away from the cam, sure.

Its 2.4 ghz so line of sight from the transmitter to the receiver can be important in places like LA.

You could get a Giant Squid wired lav, 50$ decent reviews, and more economical. then upgrade to a wireless transmitter receiver kit

The wireless Rodelink kit is not line of site, per se. I've recorded audio with it from another room several times.

Another cool thing you can do is make other types of mics wireless. I've connected a video mic pro and the transmitter to a boom pole and had the receiver connected to a recorder for wireless capture.

It's a good deal for the rodelink wireless system provided you fit its use criteria. I've had success with recording for broadcast material with it. I'm unsure of the on camera shotgun mics (videomic pro) vs the takstar.

Yep, I totally agree that this is a good deal if you need the rode wireless system. Otherwise, it's a super overpriced brand, which is really not that good as ppl tend to think.

Do you have a recommendation for Sony A6#00 / A7s series? I'm a hobbyist and just got into videography recently. it will be mostly for lifestyle family/kids videos. Thanks in advance.
