    Comments about Samson UM1 Portable Wireless Lavalier Microphone System (Frequency N1- 642.375 MHz):

    i use this kit to record my pastors' sermons, i plug the transmitter to the monitor port on the churches sound board, and transmit to my sony handycam. it is very easy to use, i didn't even have to look at the manual, just hooked it up and it worked. there is some noise, but that could be due to my inexperience with adjusting gain and such, but preimier pro has a filter that got rid of most of the noise for me.
