    Default Sennheiser EW-112P G3 system

    Hi all,

    I am about to embark on a documentary with my Panasonic AG-HMC41E camcorder, and I am looking for a wireless lapel mic to work with.

    I have been recommended that the Sennheiser EW-112P G3 system is my best bet for a budget of around 400.

    Does anybody own this mic, or have any advice/ experience of it?

    Your help would be much appreciated.

    Best,

    Mike

    I've got a couple of G2 kits and i'm more than happy with them. The G3 is more-or-less the same but slightly better!

    In the price range, the G2/G3 does seem to be the best value for money prosumer wireless system and, apart from a couple of little quirks, I've only heard good things about them.

    I got mine intending them as a stopgap until I got my new Micron system after an unintended underwater excursion. Three years later I'm still happy enough with the Sennys not to have bought the five-times-more-expensive alternative yet.

    The quirks are that they aren't as robust as a "proper" professional system but I've got mine in a couple of pouches meant for mobile phones to protect them (especially the cable connections) and so far... touch wood... no issues.

    Just a label though, innit? Helps us differentiate between different types of products, and perhaps more importanly, segments the market for manufacturers. Prosumer tends to mean something that's sometimes used in a commercial environment, but's affordable to keen amateurs. But at the end of the day, it just gets all a bit confusing if we debate whether something is consumer, prosumer or pro. As Gaffer said, in his experience it's fine alternative to (much) more expensive models, but not quite as "robust". Pretty much my experience of anything that's in the mid range price. I.e. the you get marginal returns the higher the price.

    NB: Note that I don't have a clue about mics, sound, or pretty much anything technical!!!
