  • Kopul CMX-1-V2 Two-Channel Mini Mixer with Shoe Bracket

    Designed for filmmaking using a DSLR, camcorder, or mirrorless camera with a 3.5mm mic input, the CMX-1-V2 Two-Channel Mini Mixer with Shoe Bracket from Kopul is a compact and robust mixer that provides extra inputs and level controls for two separate mono inputs or a stereo mic input.

AVX ENG Dual Wireless Basic Kit (CH 8: 1920 to 1930 MHz) is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this kit - Still need to buy backup batteries. I use this kit primarily for educational videos where one or two people are talking in a controlled environment. I find it very intuitive to use, and have yet to have any signal issues. The encrypted digital signal prevents cross-talk like you might get with the G3. This particular kit does not come with backup batteries, although the case does come with slots for 2 receiver backup batteries, and slots for 2 transmitter backup batteries. There is no extra slot for the stick microphone backup battery, but it can fit diagonally in the square compartment. I highly recommend getting backup batteries if you plan to shoot two people for over 3 hours since the small receiver batteries only last about 4 hours, although if you have a digital recorder with phantom power on the XLR input where the receiver is plugged in, the receiver will automatically turn off if you turn off the recorder. This helps conserve battery. The transmitter packs are small relative to the Rode system which is partly what sold me on this system, and this kit option was hard to beat.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Ready for Primetime I already owned an older Sennheiser wireless lav, but I was looking to add a 2nd to my collection of gear. I decided to "upgrade" and bought this whole kit. Upon delivery my initial impression of it was positive. I loved the form factor. I really liked how small the receivers are, and that they can plug directly into a camera XLR input without any additional wires or mounting brackets. They are also very easy to pair to the transmitters. The icing on the cake was that everything fit very nicely into the included hard case.�Now for the bad news. Issue #1: I discovered that there is a significant latency in the audio signal with the lavaliere. To test, I hooked a receiver into one channel on my camera, and then hooked a hard wired Sony lavaliere into the other channel. I clipped both mics to my test subject and had them talk for a bit. Then I brought the clip into Premiere and compared the waveform of both audio channels. There was about a 1 frame difference between the wireless and hardwired (when recorded at 30fps). This was a deal breaker for me, as I work regular shoots that require me to mix a variety of microphones (wireless and hardwired). And I don't need to give myself additional work of trying to sync audio tracks to avoid echo. Issue #2: The receiver will create interference in other microphones if in close proximity. My camera XLR inputs are directly underneath the camera's shotgun mic. Which means when this receiver is plugged in and turned on, there will be a constant buzz in the shotgun mic. I almost always run my shotgun in the other audio channel as a backup, so the fact that this happens is unacceptable. I read 1 other review of this mic that mentioned these 2 issues. Unfortunately, I experienced the same thing. If you are using these on their own and not mixing them with any other types of mics, then they might work fine for you. But this kit just won't cut it for me, so I returned it. I'm sticking with the Sennheiser G3 line for now.
