Nikon ME-W1 Overview

Record monaural audio from subjects from up to 164' away with the water-resistant ME-W1 Wireless Microphone Set from Nikon. The mic uses Bluetooth connectivity and is compatible with all Nikon DSLR, Nikon 1, and COOLPIX cameras that have a 3.5mm microphone jack.

Both the microphone and the receiver capture audio, allowing you to record voices of both the photographer and the subject.

Stereo recording can be achieved by connecting the optional ME-1 microphone to the ME-W1.

    I'd like to use something like this to do 'pro' ...

    I'd like to use something like this to do 'pro' Zoom calls with better audio quality. Let me know if this is possible: 1) Use a standard external lavalier mic (in this case, a Rode) instead of the built-in mic, via the 3.5mm jack. Then, monitor the audio from the headphone jack. 2) On the receiver side, connect this via adapters to my USB audio interface (SSL 2) - taking the headphone or line out into the mic input, and the output into one of the XLR ports. (This might need some impedance matching + adapters). Is this possible? My other approach would be to use a Rode Wireless Go for the mic, and then a standard Bluetooth DAC to monitor the audio.
    Asked by: Arjun
    The 3.5mm jack in this is for mic level audio out only; It's not for headphones/monitoring. You could input that into an XLR port with the appropriate adapter. I'd recommend discussing your intentions with a phone or chat agent so that we can best ensure that your specific needs are met.

    question

    it si possible to use more than 1 transmitter? if it is, how many? I am a wedding videographer and would like to capture audio for both groom and bride, even the priest if possible
    Asked by: Carlos M.
    Sorry, no. Audio recording requires each mic have its own transmitter and track. That means you must have a mixer that can take 2 or more microphone. Three signals on one track would not allow any control of the levels of the three tracks resulting in a audio mess. I suggest that you speak with one of our Pro Audio agents regarding what you wish to do. They would have a great solution.

    question

    Is the bluetooth function only for connection between the transmitter and receiver, or can it also transmit audio directly to a cell phone?
    Asked by: rory
    It is only for transmitting from transmitter to receiver. Will not work with a cell phone.

    question

    Can you suggest a non-screw end lav mic compatible with the transmitter/mic of theNikonME-W1? Upon testing, I have discovered that when the receiver is enabled as mic also (a great feature of this set), an external lav mic will work fine, thus freeing the interviewer from the immediate camera position. Also, the extreme handling noise is eliminated, both transmitter and receiver by using external mics. But, I ask for suggestions of little lav mics because the lav mics I used to test are the screw on kind, and those seem to rattle around thus producing crackling if flexed. (Sennheiser AVX mics). Use is for interview situations, in this case, oral history. Thanks!

    question

    Following up on the question and answer about turning off the receiver mic, how would you turn the receiver mic off? And both the transmitter and receiver have up and down volume buttons, is there a way to monitor what volume the equipment is at?
    Asked by: Peggy
    To turn off the receiver you need to do that from the mic itself. And to monitor the sound the only way is if you have a headphone jack on the camera to attach a headphone to.

    question

    will Nikon ME-W1 Wireless Microphone Set B&H # NIMEW1 MFR # 27159 connect with Nikon camera Nikon will it connectd with NIkon camera and how?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    It depends what camera you have. There's a list of compatible models on the nikon website. I have a 7200 and it works fine. You plug the receiver into the mic input and it connects via blue tooth to the wireless the mic. It works pretty well, but I noticed that it drops out a bit if there's some structure, like a post or tree, in the path. Great for interviews though.
