    Even though the Azden WHD-Pro VHF wireless kit seems designed primarily for audio applications with DSLRs and compact camcorders, I decided to give it a try for video field work with my Canon XL series SDV and HDV camcorders. The transmitter/receiver units have functioned very well at line-of-sight distances of up to around 120 feet, and the selectable frequency switch has been effective for improving reception in a number of situations.

    The lavalier mic has performed admirably thus far, delivering generally crisp and uncomplicated sonic quality. The SMX-10 short stereo shotgun mic does a fair job at rejecting some off-axis and rear input but don't expect it to act like a super-cardioid. It's a bit noisy, even when the low frequency cut-off filter is enabled. My Audio-Technica stereo directional mic is a significantly better performer, but it's heavier and requires XLR cabling. The SMX-10 has come in handy when the portability of the wireless kit proved more practical than dealing with the bulk of a field mixer and field recorder. Overall sonic quality delivered by this wireless kit is a little thin and on the tinny side, but easily addressed with judiciously applied audio filtering in post.

    Overall, I've found the Azden WHD-Pro VHF wireless kit to be a good value for the price and a very useful complete solution for field work where light and portable are important working factors.

            It's definitely not what I was expecting, as far as the sound. It just blew my mind, and the reception is phenomenal for the price, used it inside my 2nd floor room, then when out side it was still working, that was at least 100 ft trough walls, I can tell you it is better sound quality than what my DSLR has (Canon 5D Mark III). The material they built it with is cheap but hey! you wont get anything better for the same price.

The sound quality is phenomenal and just opening up the case brings me joy. As an ameteur film maker, having a chance to show my professionalism is an opportunity I will never fail to pass up.

            I own and operate a small audio visual production house. Bought this as my first set of microphones for audio recording at weddings. The sound from these microphones are very clear.

            Note that the shotgun and lapel unit both use 1/8" mini plug, you will need an adapter if you only have XLR inputs on your camera.

            Only downside I see is that the lapel unit only has two frequencies, so if someone else is using them you will have an issue. However this is a budget friendly set.

            The fact that it intergrated with the use of a universal video camera shoe even though I have a GL1 Cannon camera. Product for the price worked as a great wireless solution but the sho-gun type mic also was available when wireless was not a recommended solution. Good product for the $$$ spent.
