Rode Wireless Go
Announced at CES a few months ago, my unit just arrived and I have to say the advertising is true. The new Rode Wireless Go is out of the box ready to go! In the simplest of terms, you have a wireless mic/tramnsmitter sending great sound back to the receiver that is connected to the camera for your video productions. You can literally take it out of the box and start using it, that’s what I did! The highlights are:
They are incredibly small, the size of a matchbook, just a tad thicker. Charging via USB is pretty cool which helps keep their size really small. The only drawback I found that is if using the Mic (which comes with its own deadcat), it’s hard to hide on the subject’s clothing. But the sound is excellent right out of the box so if you want to get into video and up your sound game, this is a great, inexpensive option.
