Rode RODLNK-FM overview

  • 1Description

The RodeLink Filmmaker Kit from Rode is a wireless system for film and video production that features a transmitter, receiver, and an included lavalier microphone. The system utilizes a Series II 2.4 GHz 128-bit encrypted digital transmission signal that constantly monitors and hops between frequencies to select the strongest signal. The kit offers a high signal-to-noise ratio and provides a high-resolution 24-bit 44.1 kHz digital transmission of lossless audio at a range of up to 328 ft. Up to 8 systems can be used together simultaneously.

The beltpack transmitter features a simple 3-stage gain adjustment and a mute lock function to prevent accidental muting. A locking 3.5mm input audio connector ensures body worn microphones remain secure. The camera mount receiver features a removable shoe mount enabling it to be used on camera or as a belt pack receiver. A mute override function gives complete control to the operator, while mute status, input level, and battery status for both the transmitter and receiver are displayed on the front of the unit. The receiver also utilizes the same locking 3.5mm connector as the transmitter to provide solid security.

Both the beltpack transmitter and camera mount receiver can be powered by any USB power source using a standard micro-USB cable. The system offers eight discrete channels that can easily be set up in seconds with over 8000 different channel combinations available. Channel selection and pairing is achieved with a one-press operation and automatic scanning, which significantly reduces setup times when compared to traditional UHF setups.

    Rode RODLNK-FM reviews

    RodeLink Wireless Filmmaker Kit is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 209.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Great, after I figured out the digital noise issue I concur with others on quality and performance. You may hear digital tone/noise in the background. I finally discovered this is actually the microphone picking up RF noise from the transmitter. This will not be an issue if you use it as intended, a lapel microphone, because the microphone is on the person's chest and the transmitter down on their beltline. But, let's say you are trying to use this as a hidden location microphone. You coil the cord around the transmitter and hide it in some flowers. Now the microphone is right next to the transmitter, and you will get the noise. The fix is easy: Don't use it that way!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Excellent sound quality but bulky Overall, rode has done an excellent job on this mic set up. Sound quality is excellent, and the digital frequency technology is great. However, the packs are much bulkier compared to certain industry standard units, and though I do not have the evidence to support this, I believe because of the fully plastic construction of these mics, they will not stand up to the rigors of professional use when compared to the rugged and metal build of certain industry standard units. As far as sound quality, you are paying 2/3 the price for the same quality when compared to their competitors. However, I'd spent the extra for something that is tried and tested and will last.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding, better than expected. I've had the Rode Wireless Filmmaker Kit for about 2 weeks and have done a few projects so far with it. I find it very easy to work with, build is good, and its easy to setup. The sound quality is awesome for this price range, and it suppresses background noise pretty well. I'm also getting NO noise with this system so far. I use an XF300 with XLR inputs so the adapter is not the problem as some other reviews suggest. Keep your gain down, and let it do the work, not your camera. The XF300 preamps are excellent, but I also hooked it up to my XA10 which does not have the 300's preamp capability, and had no issues with noise.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great wireless lav set! I'm a semi-pro videographer. I shoot weddings, and interviews. So far this set has worked great! I like that the mic screws into th body pack to prevent it from coming out. I like the controls that I can mute from the receiver, see audio levels and see the battery levels. Sounds good. I can attach directly to my my camera's hot shoe mount with the included hardware. Good versatility with the micon connections. Just wish they would have included a output cable to xlr, in addition to 3.5mm. Mic clips are okay, and the windscreen for the lav mic is easy to put on, which is helpful.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Quality... As long as you are in direct line of sight. Used this lav as a videographer to mic different people for different shots during different events. The quality of this mic is wonderful! Even better than some of the more expensive lavs I have used. It has a rich, full sound to it. But recently I had a groom mic'ed up that was less than 30 feet away, but around the corner in another room and the sound was in and out. Which created worry about the situation. So I turned off the TX and RX and turned them back on. They picked up better, but still, I expected them to pick up the first time given the distance away. However, it does it's job and sounds great! I've used it now for a few projects and love the sound! P.S.... It's almost as big as a brick though.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use, slightly bulky, great signal Pros: - Digital signal links up very quickly and easily, no hassle. Audio quality is good. - Great battery life, and it's great that I can monitor the transmitter battery life from the LCD on the receiver. Saves me the apprehension of not knowing when the other battery is going to run out of juice. - Fantastic price for what you get. Cons: - Larger than the Sennheisers I'm used to using. The size makes it a bit harder to hide the transmitter, especially when the subject is wearing a dress or has no pockets. - This is nitpicky, but those little rubber stoppers on the back of both units (made for protecting the mount threading) keep falling out and are pretty much uselss.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome mic for DSLR/Documentary shoots. I purchased this kit to use on a low budget indy feature film I was working on. I was blown away by its performance and sound quality. The only draw back (and it is a big one) is the size of the body back. Working on a set where actors are moving in and out of frame or walking across frame, it is difficult to conceal the bodypack. I was lucky enough that most of the scenes involved winter jackets or tuxedos. But for a shoot where actors are wearing tighter fitting close or less clothing it would definitely be a problem. That being said I loved the capsule. Great mic nice and clear. I would definitely use it on shoots or scenes where the actor is stationary.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Audio and SIMPLE to Use Great wireless lav setup. There are loads of 5 minute videos on YouTube that will show you exactly how to set it up. Once you get used to the RodeLink it will take you about 30 seconds to get it up and running. Audio quality is great, even using the onboard amp in my 70d. Range is also excellent and I have never really had any issues with signal loss under normal shooting environments. The only reason I gave this product 4 stars is because the lav that is included is very expensive and seems to be very fragile. That said other lav's work, just be careful with which one you pick because not all lav's will work with it.
