    I'm a wedding videographer so this microphone is great at getting clean, clear audio during the vows. I also use it for getting speakers during interviews for documentaries and it works like a charm. Two frequencies are just enough, and the batteries last for a long time. I bought a 1/4 plug into an XLR so now I can use the mic for both ports for two of my cameras. Great product.

    I had a video shoot that required a wireless lavalier setup connected to my video camera. I was only 30 feet away from the subject and I experienced drop outs during the taping. The other frequency was noisy and the one selected without the noise would be okay for a while and then I would experience audio drop outs. Not quite the performance I expected at a distance of 30 feet. I returned the PRO88W and went with the Sennheiser EW112P G3 system. More money, but much better performance.

      Comments about Audio-Technica PRO 88W-830 Camera Mountable VHF Lavalier Pro 88W VHF Wireless System:

      I use this set up on short film sets and while shooting commercials. I have been able to record quality sound when I used this product. This is an inexpensive wireless option which does work. If you choose this product and use it reasonably it will serve you well. The two channel option has always been enough to suffice for my needs, but this is typically a highly controlled environment.

      I got the Audio-Technica Pro 88W to use with my Cannon Rebel T3i. When I tested the mic in a controlled invironment with my Cannon, there was a significant amount of white noise. Totally unacceptable. I returned the system and am going to see how the AZDEN UHF LAV system works.

      Hope this is helpful.

          I purchased this system to record speakers at a conference. I didn't take it out of the box until the morning of the conference, but found it intuitive to use and the sound quality was excellent. The only downside I experienced was since I chose to not adhere it to my camera, the receiver was a bit bulky and in the way hanging from the camera.

            Yea, this is a cheap wireless pack. It only has two channels and its made of plastic. But, the audio is clear and you cannot beat it for the price. This would definitely be a good starting wireless. If you need XLR inputs, you will need an adapter cable. Other than that, great product.

            The only drawback is the limited choice of wavelength.

                  Because my clients won't pay for a videographer for the market research work I do, I've had to become my own. After 10 hours of use, I judge the Pro88W to be quite adequate for my needs. The omni mic eliminated distant ambient sound (aircraft overheard, leaf blower in the yard) but not the din of a busy restaurant. Audio quality was excellent in my finished video.
