      I just bought this set for pro-sumer level videos at church and for a nonprofit group. First true test at church was great. Timid, nervous person came through clear and strong - and even throughout the 3-minute recording. No dropoff from her moving away from the podium mike, which she often did. yeah, the mic is big, but it works great. I walked down a hall at church and out of sight of the camera and still came through strong. Definitely worth the price I paid for the sound quality and consistency. I also have canon's external mic that mounts on the Vixia M41 video camera. That also works well for groups, but this will definitely be my mic of choice for single-person videos.

      I ordered this system to use to shoot short interviews, but the mic transmitter is actually the mic. There's no external, wired mic element. So you have this inch and a half tube intruding into your shot from the lapel of your subject. Way unprofessional. No real way to hide this mic. Not sure of any other real reason to have this mic other than to record Natural sounds, and there are better solutions for that.

        Comments about Canon WM-V1 Wireless Microphone:

        I have used this microphone for video recording (of interviews in random locations) with great success. I find the quality to be excellent. It is much easier to use than a boom mike and long cables (which are sometimes appropriate, but not always). I have just now bought my third set of these for three different locations—that's how much I have appreciated this microphone.

                Comments about Canon WM-V1 Wireless Microphone:

                I am hard of hearing and use this wireless microphone in situations with heavy noise where I cannot understand my friends easily. For example, I use it in my cheap car on highways and in bars. The sound quality of this device is outstanding and the device reacts well to heavy background noise. Transmission lag is also almost imperceptible which is very important in my opinion. I have tried other mics that had up to half a second delay which were really hard to lip read with. On 1000mAh battery, the device lasts more than 3 hours (do not know how long it could last). Excellent construction. Lightweight enough. Love the bidirectional transmission. Five stars. Very satisfied.

                  I use this product for recording talks and events for a public history project. They are great until they are suddenly not great - they seem to last for forty minutes on brand-new batteries before cutting out. So they are of only very limited use for us.

                    I had a sony wireless mic systema nd kept picking up noise on it, so I went back to a Sennheiser wired mic and was tethered to my shot subeject. Everyone told me I hae to pay $600 for a Sennheiser wireless, then I stumbled on this new Canon bluetooth mic. It is flawless. Quality os superb. I was shooting in a shipyard with lots of radio noise and potential interference and the sound is clean and crisp.
                    Easy to attach mic and it doesn't look like a little mic, so it fakes out the audience.
                    This is brilliant. I am a happy customer.

                    I use this microphone/receiver set with my Canon Vixia HF G10 camcorder to record live presentations and social events.

                    Setup is very easy. As soon as both units are turned on they seamlessly connect. Both units are identical in appearance so take care to read the front face so you know which piece goes where.

                    Each unit is about the size of a "C" cell battery. Not small, but not so large that it's always in the way. Even with the battery loaded (One "AAA" cell in each unit), they are lightweight and clip easily to the subject (microphone) or the camcorder hand strap (receiver).

                    Average battery life in my use has been 2+ hours. The better the battery, the longer the life. Take spares just to be safe.

                        We use this for our Sunday Church service. Last Sunday, the second time we used this, the batteries died half way through the sermon. So, it works great but always use fresh batteries!!

                            I purchased this to improve the audio of the video taken from the back of our church sanctuary of the sermon approx. 50 ft. away. I have used it once and it worked very well. Audio much improved. It did not interfere with our sound system at all.

                                I got the Canon WM-V1 wireless mic to use with a Vixia HF M52 camcorder that we use for making in-house marketing videos. These will mainly be used for making corporate interview style videos that we ultimately post to our web site.

                                The mic is larger than a lapel mic - but you don't have to worry about any additional pacs. Also, I've found the mic to be sensitve enough that I can place it near the subject, but just off camera, and still get great sound without attaching the mic to the person speaking.

                                The range on these wireless mics is also good. Overall a great, simple mic solution.

                                    Make sure your subject turns his or her part of the mike on! My daughter decided it might interfere with the podium mike already in place so she turned off her WM-V1 wireless mike while the other part was in place in the camera. Of course no sound was recorded then. Operator error, of course, but worth noting for newbies like me. I look forward to experiencing glorious sound quality when I have another occasion to use it properly!

                                      First and foremost, the price for quality of this product is worth everything you spend on it. A top of the line wireless mic system can run your wallet over the thousand mark. I currently use these mics with my canon hf g10 while videoing my own hunting how in my free time with my twin brother. If you think you don't need a mic videoing outdoors, you'll end up being one of those videos that everyone complains about. Audio is the finishing touches on great quality. I would recommended this product to anyone looking for quality at a great price. Keep a look out for Mirror Image Outdoors in the years to come.

                                        Easy to set up and use. I was able to use it with my new canon 4ti that has a mic jack. Good sound quality even at a distance in a noisy factory. I suggest getting a splitter so the person recording can listen in and communicate while recording. There's only one earphone jack on the receiver so without the splitter you can't listen/instruct and record incoming sound.

                                        I just bought this set for pro-sumer level videos at church and for a nonprofit group. First true test at church was great. Timid, nervous person came through clear and strong - and even throughout the 3-minute recording. No dropoff from her moving away from the podium mike, which she often did. yeah, the mic is big, but it works great. I walked down a hall at church and out of sight of the camera and still came through strong. Definitely worth the price I paid for the sound quality and consistency. I also have canon's external mic that mounts on the Vixia M41 video camera. That also works well for groups, but this will definitely be my mic of choice for single-person videos.

                                          I used this product on camcorders and even a DSLR Beachtek adapter using an XLR to 3.5 mini-plug converter and it works fine. They may be bulky but they are less cumbersome than the ones where you put the mic on the belt and the corded lapel towards your collar.

                                            I could hardly wait to get my Canon VM-V1 Wireless Microphone. It performed exactly as stated in my research: very clear and from a great distance from my camera. Happily it arrived sooner than expected. From the time I placed the order to the time I received the item, the service was great and I was able to track it through shipment as well...
