Boya BY-WM6 Wireless Audio Sender, Receiver & Lavalier Microphone 100m Range Mic;
Currently have a Boya wm6 which I'm happy with, and brought it as I felt it is the "cheapest" wireless I could go with. But there are times when more than one (or two, or three...) wireless are needed. And I'm wondering if there are even more affordable options, which are still usable.
The Boya BY-WM6 UHF Wireless Microphone System consists of a wireless transmitter, receiver and an omni-directional lavalier microphone, stored safely inside a sturdy hard case.
It provides a complete wireless microphone system suitable for use in all video and filmmaking situations.
The system has been designed for ENG, EFP and DSLR video and requires just 2 x AA batteries to supply power each unit, providing up to 8 hours of continuous operation.
The clear, easy-to-read display allows for easy operation whilst providing essential information such as the current UFH channel, volume level and battery life.
With over 48 UFH channels, you can be sure of uninterrupted, crystal clear audio that will reach a range of up to 100m (without obstacles). You can monitor the audio continuously using the headphone monitoring functionality and you can adjust the volume/mute directly from the transmitter.
The receiver and transmitter are lightweight, yet sturdy, allowing for easy transportation. Mounting each unit is simple because of its sturdy build and integrated belt-back clips. Whilst the removable cold mount on the receiver enables you to securely mount the unit to your camera's shoe mount. You can then connect the unit to your camera using the supplied 3.5mm mini jack to jack cable. The 3.5mm jack ports located on the transmitter and receiver have locking threads which ensure a perfect connection at all times.
Been looking around for the last few weeks at the various wireless options which are priced significantly below the Boya wm6, there are a surprisingly large number of them!!
Unfortunately many of these ones are no good, but on the upside it appears wireless has taken great strides forward (all 5 of these wireless sets mentioned are only roughly a year old or less on the market), and I've narrowed it down to four which are cheaper than the Boya wm6 yet look appealing from what I can gather.
