Where can I get the drop in wireless transmitter or is its receiver? Where does it transmit to, or what wireless mics?
Asked by: James
For the JVC GY-HC900CHU 2/3- HD Connected Camcorder, a Unislot receiver can be connected through the Unislot port. The Lectrosonics SRc/SMWB Dual Transmitter and Receiver with Unislot Camera Mount ENG Kit, should work well for this function. https://bhpho.to/2uFvP9O
