The Panasonic DMW-XLR1 Wireless Interview Kit for DC-GH5 Camera from B&H is an easy-to-use, camera-mount microphone system that lets documentary makers and mobile journalists wirelessly record man-on-the-street interviews shot on a DC-GH5 mirrorless camera.
The kit includes a Senal ENG-18RL broadcast microphone, which features an omnidirectional pickup pattern that makes it easy for two or more people to speak in one mic. Setup is simple and efficient. Attach the Xvive Audio plug-on transmitter to the microphone's XLR jack and connect the plug-on receiver to the DMW-XLR1 XLR microphone adapter. The transmitter and receiver quickly pair when turning on the system and provide a reliable transmission at ranges up to 90'.
Panasonic DMW-XLR1 XLR Microphone Adapter
Expand the audio capabilities of your DC-GH5 mirrorless camera with this shoe-mounted DMW-XLR1 XLR Microphone Adapter from Panasonic. It connects to the camera directly through the hot shoe and provides two XLR inputs for using professional microphones. It also features a control panel with a clear cover that sports numerous physical dials and controls for changing the levels, gain, and low cut filter of each input individually. Also, it supports high-resolution recording formats up to 96 kHz and 24-bit. A cable clamp is present as well for cable management and a shoe mount on the top of the unit can support additional accessories. Additionally, it receives power directly from the camera.
Xvive Audio U3 2.4 GHz Digital Wireless Microphone System
Turn your dynamic microphone into wireless with the U3 2.4 GHz Digital Wireless Microphone System from Xvive Audio. It features a 2.4 GHz wireless band, 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response, and less than 5 ms latency. The system works up to a 90' range, and includes two rechargeable batteries with a five-hour life for both receiver and transmitter units. The transmitter plugs into a dynamic microphone or into DI or XLR output gear, and the receiver plugs into a live sound mixer, portable PA system, or a recorder. This system broadcasts on six channels simultaneously, and is suitable for live vocals, presentations, video productions, and houses of worship.
Senal ENG-18RL Broadcast Omnidirectional Dynamic Microphone (Long)
The Senal ENG-18RL is a broadcast-quality omnidirectional dynamic microphone. The dynamic capsule picks up sound in a 360° pattern and does not require a battery or phantom power, making it a reliable choice for critical field applications. The microphone's exceptionally low handling noise and resistance to wind noise and vocal plosives make it perfect for professional ENG applications like live reporting, interviews, and press conferences.
At multiple areas inside the microphone, natural rubber with special shock-absorbing properties is bonded to carbon steel rings to isolate the sealed inner shell from the outer shell. This system protects the microphone capsule from impacts and inclement weather, and dissipates kinetic energy, dramatically reducing handling noise and resonance due to rustling and knocking.
The microphone also incorporates multistage wind protection to minimize wind noise and vocal plosives. A mesh grille, acoustic foam, acoustic fabric, and another layer of acoustic foam work to diffuse excess sound pressure from wind and breath. A fixed rigid carbon-steel ring with a unique bullet-shaped design disperses breath to minimize vocal plosives.
The EQ curve is tailored for broadcast use, with a gradual low-frequency roll-off to keep out unwanted rumble, a pronounced midrange to ensure speech intelligibility, and a high-frequency roll-off to eliminate hiss and sibilance distortion. Whether broadcasting on television, AM/FM radio, or over the internet, the ENG-18RL is designed to ensure that dialogue cuts through the mix, and can be broadcast live without EQ adjustment.
The ENG-18RL features a durable aluminum-alloy shaft designed for EMI rejection and reduced internal resonance, with a matte black finish for a professional appearance and minimum light reflection. The mic is also long enough to accommodate a mic flag.
