If you’re shooting a sit-down

AvatarLaguna Hiker

If you're shooting a sit-down interview, a wired lavalier can work just fine. I've used Audio Technica Pro 70 lavs (about $100 each) for a while now, and I've been quite pleased with them. A wired mic will almost always provide higher sound quality than a wireless mic, and the money I saved on the ATs let me add a good production mixer (MixPre-D) to my setup. I am really happy with the results that I get. If I absolutely can't run cables back to the camera, I use a Tascam recorder behind the talent, with the same mics. But I've only had to do that a couple of times.
