I am becoming a prankster with my friend and were on the rise. We have a canon vixia hfr52 camcorder. It has a 1/8" audio jack. Our old mic broke and we need a new one for $50 or less. We just need something that record at a good distance, easy to hook up to our camcorder, and has a lapel mic. We're looking for the whole system(mic,transmitter,receiver,etc.)
3.5 mm audio jack not 1/8"
Good luck finding a wireless mic with transmitter/receiver/lapel mic for that price. I'd say for a basic wireless system you're looking at $100 to $150, and even at that price point expect audio interference from time to time depending on shooting location.
Yea i noticed that when i researched them. We have some more money now and were looking at a budget of $100. I found a mic called the boya by-wm5 and it says its for dslr but will it work for a camcorder
You might scout around for a used system–you'll probably get a better unit that way.
Ive been trying amazon and ebay. Im just trying to get suggestions(links) to know what i should be looking at
