    I bought this item to use with a Canon Rebel T3i, never expecting Sennheiser quality, and I wasn't disappointed. It does a serviceable job once you manually adjust your levels. The microphone clip is large and stiff. Hiding the mic is a chore because it's big, and so is the transmitter. The receiver sits somewhat loosely in the camera's hot shoe. The overall appearance is silver plastic -- but I'm still enjoying using this system, and you can't beat the price as a test of how much you'll actually use a wireless lav before spending the big bucks on something better.

    I used this product for a Wedding video. The sound cut out several times, and there seems to be a hissing noise anytime the mic is receiving strong audio. The Mic itself has a midrange canny sound, I may still use it but replace the mic, but only until I upgrade to a more decent system.

    Great product

    By Sean

    Comments about Sima SDW-150 Digital Wireless Microphone System for Camcorders:

    This is great. I figured I would try this out to see what the quality was like. I was not disappointed. It was such a great price, compared to a few hundred dollars for other high end products. This product is one of my go to items when it comes to sound.

    No instructions in the package. Got the instructions on the Sima website. The included mic has too much bass and high level output. The transmiter also works with three other better mics that I have.

    Comments about Sima SDW-150 Digital Wireless Microphone System for Camcorders:

    You get what you pay for. For about $[$] this product works so far (I've only tested it in the office). I could only afford to spend $[$] and so this is better than nothing BUT the two main issues I've come across so far is: it's noisy and the mic is not directional. The mic picks up sound from all directions, so yes it will capture the audio of the person that it's clipped onto but you're also going to get a lot of ambient noise. And two it's noisy. Just holding the mic in a silent room with headphones on I hear all kinds of strange interference sounds and signals. Oh well you get what you pay for.

    Comments about Sima SDW-150 Digital Wireless Microphone System for Camcorders:

    Bought for use with a top-end Canon consumer camcorder. Shooting in windy conditions wipes out ANY on-board camcorder mic, this is the solution. It also gives multi-clip video scenes a stable audio level. Audio needed equalization, it's a bit weak in the low tones. It feels flimsy, but so what - it works!

              Sound quality and level were terrible. Flimsy construction and the lockdown was too short to screw down securely onto the cold shoe of my TM700. Linkup to receiver was unreliable. Wow, it's only [$] but still, not a worthwhile purchase.

              While this is light-weight, it feels cheap. Like a cheap gum-ball machine toy. The sound quality isn't bad, but I did lose 15 seconds of audio without knowing. I didn't pay a lot for it, so I guess I shouldn't expect a quality product either.

It would make a good addition to a school or classroom that wanted to pgrade the quality of recordings especially made outdoors.

                I bought this system for use on my camcorder for use at weddings, church, etc. The sound itself is very good, good range beyond what was specified. Only problem was constant "popping" when speaking at any distance from receiver. Tried a different mic from a known "good" system and still heard popping. Not in the wire, just the system. Would be a great system if there was no popping.
