    Audio-Technica 830 reviews

    PRO 88W-830 Camera Mountable VHF Lavalier Pro 88W VHF Wireless System is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 22.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good begining unit I am an action sport cinematographer and I bought this unit to use on our latest documentary about motocross. The unit has seemed to hold up to the conditions of a motocross track and the traveling to and from locations. It is an amateur unit, but for the price it can't be beat. There is a little noise, but depending on your surroundings, it still sounds good. I would recommend this unit to anyone looking for an inexpensive unit with decent sound.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great setup - does the trick! I purchased this system to do interviews ... use it with my Canon HV30. It's a piece of cake to use and I haven't had any problems with it. The audio is great and I've been really pleased with it. I was a little worried, because the price was so reasonable compared to other systems I looked at, but the reviews I read were all good ... and that's been my experience with it so far. No complaints here! A great system for a great price!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad Very Lightweight. Plastic cases scare me somewhat. The range is perfect for our studio, outside is even better. Good starter system and I don't have to worry about my losing too much if my students break them

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Well I'm using the mic to film two actors stepping out of a car, paying a parking meter, and then walking up to and talking directly into the camera positioned on the sidewalk. The sound works well - but not the best ever -- enough for the video piece, and I like how the mics are light weight and easy to use. With sounds of people along the sidewalk, the actors can be heard clearly above it all, making it work perfect for this project. One thing that isn't so great is it's hard to open the battery cover, I always feel like I might break it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from pretty good took a bit of tweaking, including switching to manual volume and reducing volume to a level that tuned out background, but still enough foreground. Still not perfected, but we are very close. Sometimes picks up electronic interference, but we've worked around that, also. all-in-all a pretty good system for the price range.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Will Work - But am sending back I use it for recording church sermons with camcorder. It worked OK but had dropouts/interference as the speaker walked around. I hoped a VHF unit would work because of the cost savings. Wishful thinking. Sent it back for a UHF Unit. May work for some people OK just depends where your at and surrounding radio interference.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mic for the money Easy to use, great for high schoolers.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great first wireless setup. I use this system with my Sony SR-11. The item is simple to use and picks up decent sound. Although the construction of the units seem a little flimsy, the transmitter was dropped by one of my subjects and suffered no damage. It would be nice if the transmitter was a bit smaller, but for the price you can't go wrong.
