      I am new to film making and have messed around enough with junk that I decided to start building a good starter kit.  I just got a Canon GL2 with a bunch of goodies.  

       

      The one thing that I am needing to get is a wireless lav mic.  The camera came with a Beachtek XLR adapter and I am wondering what a good system would be to hook that up to?

      In keeping with your decision to not fool around with junk, you should seriously consider the Senheisser system.

      Hi Eric –  you may find this video useful (from Dave Dugdale at learning dslrvideo.com):

       

       

      Dave seems to agree with Rick that the Sennheiser G3 is the best choice below $1000. The G3 is $630 new from Amazon and $538 used from Amazon Warehouse Deals.

       

      Hope this is helpful,

      Since you are working with an XLR input a good match would be the Audio Technica ATW-1800 series wireless, while the Sennheiser is a good system the AT has it beat with a true diversity receiver system. AT also produces an 1800 series dual channel receiver which allows for the use of two wireless transmitters at the same time.
